Retiresoon-- Greetings and welcome to the Board. Sounds like you have a little way to go yet but you will get some great ideas and no nonsense advice here.
Best advice for young people is to get started on a regular saving/investing routine and keep at it through thick and thin. Resources will be there to give you the ER option at a reasonable age. Good luck.
