Wow, great post MadCap, it's funny how many people, including me, who see parallels between your frustrations and their own, maybe that's why so many people strive for FIRE so they aren't at the whim of some hothead or some manager not looking to rock the boat.


For me, financial freedom is a much more important goal than retiring early. I may decide to keep working after I reach financial freedom, but it would be on my terms, which is why I'm so interested in running my own business. But then again, I just might decide to pack it in after reaching financial freedom. It will be great to have that option, no matter what I decide. I would like to reach that point by the time I'm 50, which is only 12 years away. It is an aggressive goal, but I think that I can do it.
