24. Benjamin Franklin Retired At A Young Age
Benjamin Franklin started working around the age of 10 when his father, Josiah, pulled him out of school. At first, Franklin worked in the family soap business, but as a teenager, he went to help his brother in the printing business. This transition was when Franklin started writing. He left his brother’s printing business and went to start up his own. Eventually, he began writing and publishing the “Poor Richard’s Almanac.” This series became so popular that Franklin was able to retire at the age of 42.
