Financial Independence (FI) means not needing to work for money. The core concept is to increase your savings rate and buy assets that provide a stream of passive income.
Here we are 2 months after I made these projections and the stock market dipped exactly as expected tracking to the 18-34% range.
We're not out of the woods just yet though, so we could always see another round of pullbacks pushing the market even lower into the 40-55% range. That being said, I'm cautiously optimistic things will bounce back now that the bailouts have been worked out and are close to being enacted.
In the meantime we can expect the ~5% volatility to continue as the market consolidates and settles.

Now is a fantastic time to buy, or at least get your brokerage accounts set up and funded. www.youtube.com/watch?v=kgydtjmxcsc We'll probably continue down another 10% or so based on historical trends, so be ready!
Zcoin also provides some privacy features but I wouldn't trust anything other than Monero which has privacy as it's core. The combination of Ring Signatures, Bulletproofs, Stealth Addresses and other features make Monero the de facto leader in digital decentralized cash tech.
@Shortbull Common criticism is "what if you fail/how will you provide for your family?!" This attitude is everywhere. No one ever sees that an entrepreneur is a science-experiment of concurrent failures until the discovery of market-fit. They only ever see the failure.
They'll be first in line for a hand-out, however, when you let it be known. So enthusiastic.
@Shortbull Crabs in a bucket mentality. People like this are best attrited to the fringes of your social circle moving forward.
I started my business in my early 30s, people were generally more supportive but there were a few like you described. There's just no fixing that kind of relationship. On the flip side, becoming a business owner was a massive SMV boost even when I was still new and broke as fuck. Not only direct IOIs but Moms trying to push their daughters on me. Mine was a B&M business, results may vary with less conspicuous online businesses.
