“What’s financial independence? Retire at 30? What are you going to do? That sounds boring!”
Recently I struck up a conversation with a co-worker that went something along those lines. I’m always a bit weary to bring up the topic. You never know how people will react. Generally, people are either interested in learning more about financial independence & early retirement or strongly against anything slightly unconventional.
The notion of financial independence – never having to work another day in your life – before you’re 50 years old is a very contrarian and controversial topic these days. And although it’s enjoyed a surge in popularity as of late and has even become a bit of a buzz word, there’s still many people out there who are unaware.
