sorry. i just got a kick out of the implicit assumption that the financial planners did something truly amazing and unique by showing these people they could retire early......

Maybe not amazing or unique, but it is rare, rare in the sense that, too many people just don't know anything about how to handle their finances. What I learned I learned from my parents, so maybe their parents never taught them anything. But it should not be rare, since as you say, it's not all that difficult. Sometimes I think TMF should advertise more, I've been trying to get my parents to read the site (they don't know anything about investing, just saving).
