I dedicate Retire on my budget project in honour of my parents and grandparents who taught me to be kind and helpful. That's the main reason why I started this project.

Ran Fridman

Founder & cool member of Retire on my budget community

My name is Ran Fridman.

By nature, I love to help people. It is because I feel good when I'm helping someone. Years ago, I started, and now I have begun another project to help others find happiness.

The Retire on my Budget project is created to help people retire happier, healthier, and smarter.

I was born in Kyiv, Ukraine. However, I have lived worldwide for the past 30 years, including in the USA, Asia, and the Middle East.

I'm happily married to my lovely wife and have two beautiful daughters. In our family, we speak six languages and want to learn more. When we lived in different countries, I had opportunities to talk to people who retired in those countries.

When I told them about my idea for this community project, Retire on my Budget, they said they wished there was something like this when they were planning their retirement.

It would have saved them a lot of money, time, and stress and allowed them to find and learn from experts (both local and abroad) along with connecting them to businesses and like-minded people.

The data we provide for you in plan # 1 is free, but we still pay for this data. Please consider supporting our community. Click here to see how you can help.
