Quitting my job, moving to Thailand...
And it feels fucking awesome. Today is my first day of official retirement.

Any of you fine gentlemen who are trapped in the 9-5 grind, but have doubts about taking the leap into the world beyond, trust me on this: You will not regret it.

Not on the first day at least.

Cheers,

Frost

He's 25 years old. Not sure what his plan is.

25?!?!?

How in the world does someone save enough money to retire at 25 years of age?

Congrats. I quit my job at 26 with no defined plan one year ago and I'm still standing. It's not easy and it might not work but it's doable.

I'm actually heading to Thailand in Nov as well, indefinitely. Where you staying?

RE: Quitting my job, moving to Thailand...
The first 60-90 days in a new country is generally great, especially if you haven't lived abroad before. That honeymoon period may be extend a bit further in a place like Thailand.

We'll be interested to hear your take on retirement after one year. That'll give enough time for some experiences and some thinking. Maybe it will be the best thing that you've ever done.

I started a small web dev / ad agency with a partner that allows me to work from wherever. The plan is to keep growing and explore the idea of hiring work out to SE Asia, which is a good reason to check the region out and possibly post up long term.

Awesome stuff Frost! It's indeed an exhilarating feeling!
Thailand will blow your mind, specially Bangkok. Have fun man. There are a ton of threads on Thailand, you may also check my Mini Retirement I thread where I basically spent 3 months there and had a blast last winter.
Welcome to the Good Life my friend!

Cheers.

RE: Quitting my job, moving to Thailand...
Rah: I'm headed to bangkok and Chiang Mai for Nov-Dec (a month in each, unless I get tired of BGK sooner than that) and then taking off on a 2 month backpacking tour of Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos with some friends. Send me an email, freedomfrost25 at gmail, with your plans.

As for money, it's not like I have enough to actually retire, but I made decent $ and lived frugally for a year and a half, so i was able to sock away enough for a plane ticket and change. I have a few planned revenue streams that I'll be writing more about shortly, so i can hopefully take the mini out of this mini-retirement.

VP, thanks, I'll be sure to check out your threads before I go!

Samseau: I'm 26 now! Although I suppose my URL compels me to pretend otherwise, indefinitely =D

How much money are you leaving with after the cost of travel? How much do you think is necessary to pull a move like this off? I'm ready to get the fuck out of here as well.

I hope you know what the fuck you are doing Frost, because the job market in the US isn't going to be any easier to get back into should you return.

Maybe the Roosh community can settle on an island somewhere like in The Beach and just ship in the pussy as required.Who knows,with the right internet marketing,girls might compete for the chance to come to a secluded island where they're just about gaurranteed to get their needs met,lol
