These people are retiring early — but they’re not worried by the volatile markets

Gwen Merz is retiring from her full-time job at the end of March, at the age of just 27. But she’s still not worried about volatility in the stock market this week. “I had no idea the market was even going down until people in the Facebook FB, +2.61% groups I’m part of were saying, ‘There’s a drop, but it’s going to be OK,’” she said. “I really, truly don’t pay attention. It’s better for my mental health.”

Merz works in IT for executives of a Fortune 100 Company, but she has been aggressively saving so that she can work only on her own terms in the future.
