Mr Money Mustache is a retiree who now writes about how we can all live a frugal yet Badass life of leisure. He retired from real work way back in 2005 in order to start a family. This was achieved not through luck or amazing skill, but simply by living a lifestyle about 50% less expensive than most of his peers and investing the surplus in very boring conservative Vanguard index funds and a rental house or two.
