Self-made millionaire who retired at 35: The first time I felt financially secure, I was ‘living small’ and spending ‘a lot less’​

How much money would you have to make to feel financially secure?

CNBC’s International Your Money Financial Security Survey conducted by SurveyMonkey recently asked people all over the world exactly that, and the answers revealed of how people in different countries think about their finances.

Ask the same to Steve Adcock, and he’ll likely challenge the premise.

“Financial security is not an income amount,” the 42-year-old tells CNBC Make It. “To me, financial security is a time amount.”

Thank you for that post...

...but I have to wonder: WHY is this so HARD? These are all common-sense approaches. It's a mindset.

Example: I had to take the studded tires off my truck. I have summer tires mounted on separate wheels, came with the truck (used). Having a tire shop simply change the wheels, which used to cost pennies, now is a $100 job. And there's a waiting line...I kid you not, the good shops, even for oil changes and tires, have waiting lines and appointment times. This shop, which does good work, won't take appointments for quick tasks (a headache when people break appointments) so the thing to do is get there early...like, about 0600...and wait around a couple of hours, since there WILL be others in front of you. Some customers come at five or earlier.

Fark that. I just broke out the tools...and aside from some drama finding my breaker bar and torque wrench, it was a mindless pleasant Sunday afternoon in the sunshine. Lift a corner of the truck, unbolt, put the other wheel on, mark everything, air up the summer tires, and, DONE! Cost to me - nothing. Got a little sunburn out of it. Took about three hours, what with searching for wrenches.

I'm trying to lose weight with Intermittant Fasting - one meal a day. No junk. So, the best way is to cook at home - no more deli chicken or clearance specials. My food cost has been cut in half. And I wasn't even patronizing the Fallen Arches.

Long ago I retired all debt - that's a no-brainer. Even with nominally-low interest, I can see how much borrowing that money COSTS. So I live cash-only.

These are all just COMMON-SENSE approaches. Odd that someone could make an Eww Toob career out of just reiterating them.

There is a DePIN app ("Silencio") you can install on your phone that rewards you with NOISE tokens for recording ambient noise levels (decibels) as you walk/travel around.

This project is still fairly new and the NOISE token is not yet on crypto exchanges. The roadmap says an airdrop will be forthcoming for early adopters.

A few points I've gleaned from some cursory investigation:
  • You have to initiate recording sessions manually and each session can be a max of 30 minutes.
  • It doesn't work if you are moving faster than 12km/hr or so (while moving in a vehicle).
  • It doesn't work if you enable developer mode on your phone.
  • You need an active internet connection for it to work (better have unlimited minutes phone plan to use outside of WiFi zones)

28-year-old left the U.S., relocated to Thailand, and pays $544/month for his 1-bedroom apartment—take a look inside​


In April 2021, Paul Lee took a vacation to Thailand. Five months later, he decided to leave the United States behind and make a permanent move to the Asian country.

Lee, originally from Georgia, had been living in New York City and grossing around $1 million a year thanks to his e-commerce business. Despite doing well enough to pay for his parent’s retirement, the 28-year-old tells CNBC Make It he found himself without purpose, feeling depressed, and needing to make a change.

“When I first arrived to Thailand, I just felt rejuvenated. Everything was completely new to me, and I felt like it was a fresh new start,” Lee says. “The more and more I live here, the more and more I fall in love with the city.”

31-year-old joined the Air Force at 18—now he lives in Italy and has $500,000 saved up to retire in 7 years​

This story is part of CNBC Make It’s Millennial Money series, which details how people around the world earn, spend and save their money.

In 2011, like many 18-year-olds, Darren Thedieck wasn’t sure what he wanted. He thought briefly about studying to become a dentist, “but I was nowhere close to that,” he says. Plus, he was worried about the prospect of racking up student debt.

Knowing he wanted to travel the world and seeking financial stability, he enlisted in the U.S. Air Force, hoping to maybe get into the medical field that way.

Instead, he was encouraged to work in IT — a potentially lucrative field in the private sector — at an E-1 Basic Airman’s base pay of about $1,400 a month.

Thedieck, now 31, is still in the military, and has gotten an awful lot of what he’s wanted ever since.

Travel the world? Check. After basic training and a stint in Las Vegas, Thedieck took assignments in England, South Korea, Germany and his current posting in Aviano, Italy — about an hour’s drive from Venice.

He’s gotten financial stability too. Thedieck has steadily risen in rank and pay over his 12-plus years in the military while dutifully stashing away cash in a variety of investment accounts. Between his base pay and allowances, he pulled in $9,134 in March, which works out to an annual income of about $110,000.

An investment banker quit her job to become a YouTuber and now makes over $1 million​

Personal finance YouTuber Nischa Shah quit her six-figure investment banking job to become a full-time content creator — and it was a gamble that paid off.

After working in banking for a decade, Shah became an associate director at Crédit Agricole in 2022, earning well over £200,000 ($256,000). However, the London-based banker was not satisfied with her career, she told CNBC Make It in an interview.

"It was about nine years into the corporate journey where I had this revelation that this isn't fulfilling me, it's not really challenging me, and it's not intellectually stimulating," she said. "I wanted to find a way to help other people whilst getting paid for it and what I was doing in banking was helping corporations, sovereign governments."

The Side Hustle He Started at Age 15 Led to a $4 Billion Boon for Small Businesses: 'They Would Take a Chance on Me With Their Hard-Earned Money'​

This Side Hustle Spotlight Q&A features Nic Beique, founder of Helcim, a payment processing company used by tens of thousands of merchants — dentist offices, law firms, auto shops and more.
I started my first business when I was 15 years old. I knew how to code and design, so I asked local small business owners if they wanted a website. Many said yes, starting with my barber, the local gym and even the local computer store where I bought parts. I was always shocked when they said yes — after all, I was a random teenager walking into their location.

I saw how hard these people worked to make a living, and I was honored that they would take a chance on me with their hard-earned money. That gave me a sense of camaraderie and loyalty, and I quickly saw myself as a small business owner, too — working hard to build my own small business.

Some of the websites I built turned into ecommerce, which meant finding a way for my clients to accept payments online.

Best way to make and keep money is to run your own business and do not get married. I have at times taken more risk than necessary because I needed to compensate for my partner's lack of fiscal discipline or poor choices. I have generally lost $ doing so. I have also made and lost a million dollars multiple times deviating from a simple plan sometimes out of greed after making several correct calls in a row.

Buy gold and silver. Put it away and do not tell anybody about it. Also, do not let anybody know what are your assets because they may try to take them from you out of spite or greed.

First rule of the Rich Club is: There is no Rich Club.

Don't ever tell them how you got here. Because we DO NOT WANT the rabble stinking up the clubhouse...

When you think about it, this rule explains a LOT of the legal and social agenda of the Nuevo Riche class. Such as their favoring a confiscatory income tax...they don't HAVE big income, they RECEIVED, past-tense, income. Now they HAVE ASSETS.
