I stumbled upon this thread and couldn't resist chiming in. The journey towards financial independence (FI) is truly inspiring, and I've been on my own path to catch up with this goal. Reading about your experiences and insights has been both motivating and enlightening. https://www.behance.net/branded-packaging For those who might be new to the concept, FI essentially means having enough passive income to cover your living expenses, allowing you to have more flexibility and freedom in your life choices. It's not just about early retirement, but about having the autonomy to pursue what truly matters to you. https://www.pinterest.com/custompackaginglosangeles/
