Big day (update to 2 year old thread)

Hello all,
Today was a big day for me so I wanted to give an update to a 2 year old thread I started when I first joined the forum. I tried replying to the original thread but received an error that it was too old. Anyway, today I sold a majority stake of my company which raised my net worth to $2.1M.

I have decided to make a slight change in my original plans. My current plan is to work until end of this year (personal commitment I made) and then to work part time (e.g., 3-5 months out of every year) and travel 3-5 months out of every year. With some downtime at home base. So, I think that would make me "somewhat FIREd".

Over the next year I have a lot to do including (a) selling my house and finding a small rental as home base and (b) figuring out how to somewhat conservatively invest to give me a fixed income flow while minimizing risk. I still have not figured this piece out which is the one thing still stressing me.

"At times the world can seem an unfriendly and sinister place, but believe us when we say there is much more good in it than bad. All you have to do is look hard enough, and what might seem to be a series of unfortunate events, may in fact be the first steps of a journey." Violet Baudelaire.
