Unchained 55 is my blog on Canadian Personal Finance, my progress towards financial health and ultimately Financial Freedom, and my journey to becoming a certified Personal Financial Planner. Yes, I may fall asleep along the way, but with a little bit of careful planning, I’m confident I’ll be waking up to the future of our dreams!

What does Unchained 55 mean?

It means being financially unchained by 55 – that is, achieving sufficient financial freedom to be able to retire by the time I am 55!

It’ll be a long and bumpy road but I hope you stick around because it’ll be so worth it in the end! 🙂
