I built this site to document my family’s journey to financial freedom. I am a father and a husband, with a beautiful wife, one young daughter, and another child on the way.
It is called Turtles’ Tipping Point because in life, I have found that the surest way to accomplish goals is to make incremental progress on a regular basis, sort of the moral of the story of the tortoise and the hare. The Turtles in this case represent my family on our journey from being dependent on my wife’s and my corporate jobs to being financially free to live life on our own terms.
The “tipping point” portion in the title refers to the time when the passive income streams we are currently building up become large enough to support our lifestyle as a family in America. Once we have reached this tipping point, we will no longer be beholden to our current corporate 9-5 lifestyles, and can leave the rat race for good.
Our goal is to reach the tipping point in June of 2021, approximately five years from starting the blog.
