I didn’t need to be rich. I just needed to be free.
David Black

This resonates so deeply with my experience over the last few years, I feel as if I could have written this article myself. Although I have to say you’ve put pent to paper far more eloquently than I could have. Some points I really want to hammer home:

  1. Everyone should have their own definition of what it means to be rich. I first started thinking about this when I read Ramit Sethi famous personal finance book “I Will Teach You To Be Rich” — highly recommended!
  2. Companies can provide many great benefits but one benefit that almost nobody has freedom to go wherever you want and do whatever you want. Once I had that freedom I knew there was no way I would ever go back.
  3. Ownership over your own time ultimately means ownership over your own life.
