“I view financial events like this as unlikely. But even if there’s a miscalculation, it isn’t the end of the world.

You can always go back to full-time work. Jobs won’t magically disappear off the face of the planet if you need to make more money later.

It’s also possible to supplement your passive income with some type of active income. In fact, it’s extremely unlikely that someone possessing the ingenuity to retire extremely early in life will just loaf around and never make another dime for their entire life.

A full-time 9-5 (or 7:30-6, like I worked) isn’t the only way to make money. Be creative. Monetize a hobby. Sell stuff on craigslist. Rent a room in your home.”
