I'm doing kinda ok and should be doing way better in living a far more free life without work. Allthough I still need to make money I just do it through my profitable play firm. :)

If you would like some idea or me to tell u if your plan is realistic I have a fairly decent track record and ability to give u advice.

I think for this kinda thing the best plans are made when you think outside the box anarchistically, get your needs thru mutual aid and learn from punks. I think agorism coupled with anti work is a great tool for living without work as well.

What do you mean with your last paragraph. BTW my "plan" or "dream" would be to never pay rent, and try to live in a tinyhouse or something like that and trying to do as much things as I can myself while trying to live as minimally as possible (I already spend near to nothing for myself) the rest of the time I would like to write tutorials, build opensource software and hardware and stuff like that.

That way I could have fun most of the time and make be better with less money (or so I think )

Ok I fixed it so it actually makes sense now.

Your goal is actually pretty achievable. I would say the easiest advice would for you to have enough money to retire early. Good guestimate is your cost of living per year / .04 . Or you could become self employed in a remote job where you only have to work a few hours and it covers the bills.

If you don't spend much money and get most of your needs besides buying them it's quite practical to quit working with some set up.

I think I am shifting my goal toward work. I am ready to work but I don't want work to become a burden for my life, and one thing I am trying to achieve by minimizing needs and expenses would be to be able to be more flexible and free with work. I didn't even think about retirement but it's true it's would be a good thing to consider.

I don't know how to start though. I am still living at my parents but I know they are the type of person who wouldn't mind me staying here forever, but I don't. I don't know how to quit home and start trying to achieve this goal.
