My Plan to Buy Stock

by admin on August 28, 2012

People often ask me how I was able to retire at such a young age. I retired when I was in my late thirties. Most people expect to work till they are in their fifties at least. I am very lucky because I made some very good investments which have allowed me to retire early. My best decision happened fifteen years ago when I decided to invest a large percentage of my salary in to the employee stock ownership plan of the company I worked for at the time. I used to work for a small software company in California.

They developed a piece of software that is often used in arcade games. They were eventually bought by a much larger company. This meant the shares I had bought in the company increased by five hundred percent. They were a great investment and I am very glad I bought in to that company stock plan.
