For me, it is about time-freedom. The ability to control my own schedule, and not to be so reliant upon income from a job. For you maybe it is just about growing that nest egg without having to worry about sustaining it. Just having that peace of mind knowing that it will never run out.

always recommend we have a conversation, for one to see that I am real, and two to see if it is a good fit, and how we can make it happen. I think you will see how you can build something solid.
