I'm 27, and I'm just looking for a good way to retire early - not "sit around and eat bon bons" retire. I mean quit working a job, and do the things I WANT to do (golf, travel, raise my kids). I know this is possible, but the only people that I know who have done this in the last few years have started Amway Distributorships which have created large residual incomes for themselves. It's obviously a good, reputable business, but it's tough to get over the cynicism that people have about Amway. Does ANYONE know any other way to create a large residual income to produce an early retirement??
