040: How To Retire Young And Travel The World – Even If You Don’t Have Much Money! – Kristy Shen And Bryce Leung

Kristy and Bryce are world-traveling early retirees. They used to live in one of the most expensive cities in Canada, but instead of drowning in debt, they rejected home ownership. What resulted was a 7-figure portfolio, which has allowed them to retire in their 30s and travel the world. Their story has been featured in media outlets all over the world, including New York Times, CBC, CNBC, Women’s Health Magazine Australia, Germany’s Handelsblatt, GQ Russia, and the UK Independent. They now spend time helping people with their finances and realizing their travel dreams on www.millennial-revolution.com..
