Financial Imprisonments

Financial Imprisonments

If we drag ourselves to work, we have less free will than we think you have. We live like an automaton to trade our time for money.

Quitting the rat race is a serious endeavor. It returns freedoms back to you. The earlier the better, considering aging is inevitable.

You may end up working even harder just to pay the bill, but you have the autonomy to control your own schedule. You will earn an unstable income: no, low or astronomical income. Your business may fail or succeed.

This leaves you with a hard choice: stable income less freedom or unstable income more freedom. Both are risky.
