Chris Mamula used principles of traditional retirement planning, combined with creative lifestyle design, to retire from a career as a physical therapist at age 41. After poor experiences with the financial industry early in his professional life, he educated himself on investing and tax planning.
After achieving financial independence, Chris began writing about wealth building, DIY investing, financial planning, early retirement, and lifestyle design at the blog Can I Retire Yet? He is also the primary author of the book Choose FI: Your Blueprint to Financial Independence.
Chris also does financial planning with individuals and couples through Abundo Wealth, a low-cost, advice-only financial planning firm with the mission of making quality financial advice available to populations for whom it was previously inaccessible.
Chris has been featured on MarketWatch, Morningstar, U.S. News & World Report, and Business Insider and has spoken at events including the Bogleheads and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants annual conferences.
