When Jim Wang was 29, his life changed forever.
Jim started an online company (a blog) in his mid-20’s. His website grew to several hundred thousand readers and he eventually sold it for $3 million.
- That crazy era when a business grows beyond wildest expectations.
- The fear that the good days might not last.
- The reality of selling your business for a life-changing, seven-figure sum.
And then what?
What happens when you’re 29 and you suddenly discover that you’re financially independent? What’s next? Where do you go from there? What becomes important?
And what lessons, what universal truths, can this reveal about our own lives?
What can we learn from the aftermath of financial independence — regardless of our current bank balance?
Jim and I have a frank, forthright and insightful conversation on today’s show. It’s a long episode, but a good one.
P.S. — This interview covers two topics: the growth and sale of his business, and life after financial independence. If you want to skip the business talk and jump directly into “what happens after financial independence?,” start listening at the 26:50 mark.
