Straight up? 100%. [I’m going to regret posting this for sure]

Once you reach FI the passive income magic money machine covers the bills. That means any further work undertaken is just for chuckles, making any income earned from it all gravy.

That said it also means I can’t really whinge about the pointy headed bosses, the dickheads at the office, the stupid clients or nonsensical projects, or whatever… by virtue of work being optional, all that stuff is self inflicted.

0%. After retiring early, every dime we generate goes directly toward funding our lifestyle. :slight_smile:

I’m at 79% on a net basis and 51% on a gross basis. But as Steve pointed out, my goal is to get to 0% as soon as possible!
