New to this FIRE concept. How are people actually monetising their savings? Once the index funds or whatever are there, are you guys holding index funds and selling over time (accounting against growth)? Or looking for cash generating investments, dividend stocks and real estate and stuff?
I've gotten extremely lucky, and work for a startup company that's had an IPO this year. I'm now holding about $4.5m of my company stock, and would like to turn that into a passive income stream.

Our CSM department is going through a major restructure right now. There has been a huge amount of turn over since the beginning of the year. Our managers have not given us any insight to what the new restructure will look like, they have also pushed out our annual raise conversations until the end of April. A lot of CSMs are leaving the company and it has me thinking maybe I should entertain other opportunities elsewhere as well.

Has anyone else had an experience like this?
