Chris Reining retired at 37 after making his millions. He worked at his dream job initially in information technology earning $75,000 a year. He admits he was living a pretty good lifestyle but felt that the nine to five grind was just too much. At 30, he set a goal of having a million dollars in a brokerage account by 35. He began saving 50% of his income. By 35, not only did he reach this goal, he surpassed it and he credits it to one simple habit: automation.
