War: when I was 23 I had a web company (late 90s) and thought I was the s@$t. New BMW, fancy electronics, etc. Then it blew up and I lost everything. Avoided bankruptcy but lots of debt. It took me 5 years to dig out and I because a super saver and WAY happier.
Now I'm 40 and had saved up hundreds of thousands in those 12 years. I got very lucky at work lately and that accelerated the process... But of that had happened back then I'd blow it all.
Your mentality and process are what matter. The result is almost guaranteed... The timeline is unknown.
I would focus on keeping your mentality, make sure you find an SO with similar thoughts (assuming you are single
), and find work you like. As I started having a couple years of living expenses, work became better because I didn't need a job "next month."
Since you're also very young you could take time to look at potential sources of cash flow that are mobile.
Check out people like dividendmantra (who now has a popular investing blog). Foreverjobless. Lackingmotivation. Those guys all have interesting personal stories about how to not "work" and still live well.
You have the right ingredients WAY earlier than most people. Nice work.
