Point being, it's not like we don't have control over our lives. Most folks -- even highly skilled tech workers who can change jobs in minutes -- wouldn't consider anything other than being an employee -- but some of us retire early, consult, start a business, or who knows what? That's the great thing about this board, we're all a bunch of radicals in our own little ways. :-)

Doug,

That's a great summary of what it means to retire early. I know I liked consulting work a lot better once my portfolio had grown to the point I no longer had to do it. <grin>
