    Default Financial independence

    Do you think that financial independence is possible to anyone who starts out as a "NINJA", ie no investments, no job or assets?

    Excluding luck, windfalls and good fortune but presuming a good work ethic and access to wage paying employment?

    If you stay having no job, no investments, and no assets, then no. If however, you are willing to change that, then yes.

    I don't see how you can have financial independence if you have no job.

    Absolutely. I started off that way, and so do most people.
    Our friendship would profit us both alike. Much we could still accomplish together, to heal the disorders of the world. Let us understand one another, and dismiss from thought these lesser folk.
