Primary Author: Tim Stobbs (aka: Canadian Dream)

Tim is an engineer his thirties with two kids who decided working to 65 sounds like a bad idea. So at first he thought freedom 55 could be good, but he changed his mind. He is now trying for a retirement date of his 45th 40th birthday.

Tim also knows he does not need a lot of money to be happy. In fact most of the stuff he loves in life he can get for free from the library. So that is helping out a lot as he tries cutting back to find the perfect balance point between spending money and being happy.

If you want a bit more information on his background you should read this post.  Tim lives in Regina, SK.

Author: Dave

Dave starting writing for Canadian Dream in October 2009.  Dave is also looking to retire no later than 45, but unlike Tim has no kids and doesn’t want any.  Dave is from Ontario and is working towards his CGA certification.
