    What Would You Give?

    To retire today, fully independently retired with a pension or lump sum. The amount is up to your imagination, but what would you give for financial freedom?
    ​​​​​​
    This conversation got sparked at work recently about retirement. I said I wish a phone would blow up in my pocket, even if it cost me a leg, at 43 I'd take that to be fully financially independent.

    What would you give? What's your age?

      i cant wrap my head around this mindset.

      i wouldn't ever consider giving up. i'll retire when i've earned it.

      i hope to God i'm never so unfortunate as to have to anything like you describe happen to me. no matter how lucrative.

          36 here and I would love to be financially independant and fuck around with hobby stuff all day. I hate worrying about money. I dont know what you mean by what would you give?

          I have been forced into a small retirement due to covid, the police state I live in and thus my business stalled out. Theres like zero overhead except for some google ad expenses right now.

            I've already accepted the fact that I'll get to retire about 30 minutes after I die.

              I wouldn't trade disabilities for money. So I hope I never get hurt bad enough that I never can / have to work again. I'm banking on someday the junk I collect will be worth to everybody else what it is worth to me.

                  I've worked in heavy construction for the last 34 years, I will have earned it next year. September 1st 2021 can't come to soon.

                    I already tried it

                    "Retirement"





                    Didn't have to give anything up other than a handful of people that I despised.






                    I'm workin again...Mostly for the fun of it.






                    But the extra money is nice.

                      I think I would be bored out of my mind and be concerned without some kind of cash flow coming in at this point of my life. Even with hobbies and what not.

                        You didn't read the OP did you?

                        Money would be no concern, what would you give to be there...right now?

                          Already did! Full pension, rental property that pays well every month. Hell yeah it’s doable!

                              I already gave; that's why I'm (medically) retired.
