Jason Fieber, Mr. Free at 33

I was born in 1982 and got interested in investing in the early part of 2010. I had been saving a small percentage of my paycheck and kept it in my checking account up until that point. I had amassed approximately $7,000 and didn't know what to do. Some of my very early trades were into mutual funds and companies like GE, which I figured at my novice stage were "good bets". It wasn't until about 3 months into the game that I learned about dividend growth investing and the power behind this seemingly forgotten strategy. I then sold out of all those early positions and started concentrating on monthly investments into dividend growth stocks. Some of my investments at that point were with Johnson & Johnson and Coca-Cola. I have since dedicated myself to a frugal living doctrine. I don't have cable television, I eat my fair share of ramen noodles and PB&J, and am currently living car-free. The point behind this lifestyle is to save as much of my paycheck as possible and invest that into the equities I see fit. I try to save at least 50% of my net income every single month and invest usually once a month into 1 undervalued or fairly valued business. I suppose this is a type of dollar-cost-averaging, but I really can't afford to invest more than once a month or else brokerage fees would eat into my future returns. I typically invest $2,500 a month. I earn a very middle-class salary. 2010 was the first year I cracked $40,000, yet I still believe through this strategy of frugal living and regular investing in dividend growth businesses I can retire by 40 years old...which is my ultimate goal. I keep very fit and work out often as I believe health care costs can quickly erode a portfolio, no matter the size. I don't smoke and rarely drink. I minimize risks in almost every facet of my life to give myself every chance I can to retire young.
