A couple of months ago, someone asked on Reddit about how our experience these few months living in financial independence.

He was also curious if our friends are more open-minded about pursuing financial independence, retiring early (FIRE) than a lot of his peers.

That is how I first got to know BOCH. We went out for coffee one afternoon and chatted for over two hours about financial independence, work, and life in general.

I decided to explore whether BOCH is open to sharing his experiences with my readers because of a few things.

The first reason is that I want you to hear a perspective that is not mine. Some may find that after hearing what I said, the FIRE process might be very hard to achieve. So other perspective may help.

The second reason is that BOCH took the plunge, cut away from his job, with his family depending on his accumulated wealth.
