We hope to inspire you to live a free and fulfilled life

No one likes to be told what to do and you will never hear us say, “Follow these five steps to be a millionaire” or any such goal. Instead, we tell stories of what we experience to inspire you, stories of what we did and our mindset behind our decisions. We hope these influence you to choose freedom too.

43 the age we the age we retired

Blue Doors choosing frugality taking opportunities to live free

Really, the name 43BlueDoors started because we used to drive a beige car with a blue door. We parked it next to the Tesla at our corporate job. It became our icon and the reason that we gave to those who asked how we retired at the age of 43.

Live simply.

Find your blue door to freedom!

We cherish our freedom and want to share a bit of that with others.
