Dr. Leslie Griesdorf: Building Up to Working Less

Dr. Leslie Griesdorf is a semi-retired professional who went from working day and night with patients as an oral surgeon to enjoy free time as an investor. He retired from dentistry in 2004 and now trades in the stock market, watches the History channel and goes out with loved ones to fill up his days.
Working less and enjoying a relaxed life like Dr. Leslie Griesdorf’s is a goal of many, but few accomplish it. Tips like these can help you build up to working less so you can spend more time doing things you love:

  • Work More (At First)
It sounds counter-intuitive, but start working on a profession you can do from home in addition to your current job. This will help you build income on the side that will eventually grow large enough to become your primary source of money, so pick something you love. Like Mr. Griesdorf did with investing, for example.
  • Spend Less
You don’t need Dr. Leslie Griesdorf’s experience to know that if you spend less, you can save more and avoid the demand to work extra hours for more income. Reduce your spending, put extra money in savings and use it to retire early or to fund your side career.
