Hello! Welcome to Rebel Retirement!

Do you want to retire without worrying about money?

You can and we don't think you need a million dollars to do it.

Because let’s face it. Most baby boomers haven't saved that much!

Saving half of our income over 40 years in anticipation of retirement? Then, living off of it for the next 20? Seriously?

We've been in the workforce, raised families, and had a life! It’s hard to imagine anyone accumulating as much money as they say we need for a fulfilling retirement.

Unless you have a crystal ball, no one knows what the future holds. Life has no guarantees. Putting off retirement because of money isn't smart.

Living now before it's too late, is.


  • you haven’t been able to save
  • you didn't save as much as you think you should have
  • you lost money in the stock market crash

You are not alone!

At Rebel Retirement, we're boomers and we understand.

And that's why we started this website - to inspire others to live a happy, healthy, productive retirement without worrying about the money. 

How does this help you?

At Rebel Retirement, we offer a  value-based retirement lifestyle method. It combines the Toyota Production System, the Law of Attraction, and the Power of Now.

Value-Based Retirement - Rebel RetirementThrough informative and positive articles, we inspire others to reach their full retirement potential with  "Just in Time" retirement.

Armed with a "lean" mindset, retiring becomes an opportunity to confront one’s ego and to create an experience based on value as opposed to fear and peer pressure.

But don't misunderstand. Being lean is not about having less, or living minimally. It's about only paying for what you value, and getting rid of the waste.

By sharing what we know, we empower others who want to retire but fear they can’t because of money.

Who are the baby boomers behind Rebel Retirement?

We're Yoga Woman and Rebel Retiree.

Before moving west, we lived in the New Orleans area where we raised a family and had a business.

Always being rebels of sorts, we married young and had 3 children in 4 years. Two additional little rugrats came along in midlife. We are now the proud grandparents of 18 beautiful grands.

In addition to being a couple of "kidders", our lives have been filled with amazing dogs, fantastic felines, an extraordinary hamster, fish, ducks, rabbits, finches, a beloved turkey, and a very brave chicken - but not all at once.

Our semi-retired/retired life in the northwest is beyond anything we could have imagined. Relocating and following our dreams was one of the best decisions we've ever made.

Our life is unencumbered by debt, we pay cash for everything. We live a valued-based retirement and make decisions based on a "Lean" mindset.

Through experience, we know that if you decide what you value most, you can retire and lead a life more extraordinary than you’ve ever dreamed.
