I’m thankful for my mistakes.
Keep focused on the most important expert in your life: YOU.
Here’s a question: Is it worth pursuing college degrees in fields with statistically low salaries and high unemployment if you love the topic? That depends. How quickly are you looking to retire?
There are too many people in this country (and world) who retire poor. Some are forced into early retirement before they are ready. For others, health concerns might have influenced their decision to hang up their hat, and for some, just flat poor money choices.
I had no idea what it actually took to maintain that level of freedom once I no longer had the distraction of a full-time job.
