People in the early part of career, do you love what you do and would work till 60, or would try for early retirement?

Never! Trying to change from currently where I am!

I do enjoy what I do, but would like to use the money I earn to invest to make passive income

Agreed, scalping and swing trading are hard to learn but so fruitful and great sources of passive income.

Early retirement for sure. I have to leave my job by 30 and I'm almost 29, so the clock is ticking for me!

How much is your corpus if you're retiring at 30? Do you have any passive income apart from stocks?

Early retirement!!

Always early retirement! It is possible with the right investments.

I think what everyone said is true, working towards passive income is probably the way. Or make your side hustle the real hustle, because I enjoy mine and would be happy to do that until I feel like I'm out of energy etc

B4 Recruiter: B4 have almost identical experiences, so you’ll fit right in. Same B4 recruiter: Even though you’re on the cusp of your 2nd promo, we’ll bring you in at the entry level so that you can adjust to the firm and be set up for success.
