Final Thoughts

Money isn’t the end all be all.  It helps us out in our lives and can make things easier, but it doesn’t provide absolute happiness.  Happiness comes from much more – our friendships, our families, and our faith in humanity.

Money is a tool and should be used as such.

    I like the Henry Ford quote. I think along the path to FIRE, when you start building your skills with side gig income, you start building a freedom that money can’t buy. Anything can happen to the value of the dollar or the stock market, but once you learn valuable business building skills you will lose the need for a 9 to 5 gig.

      I think that’s a great mindset to have. I think it’s good to follow the principles, but your best investment is in yourself.
