Your Disposable income dictates how fast you can FI. Savings have a limit, income seldom have.

Higher disposal income = higher savings = faster pot of gold for compounding to work even better.

Aim to be professional enough for people to pay you a fee. That would be the game changer since you now dictate your salary.

Save more earlier in your career. When you have little, it is alot harder to make compounding work for you. Once u hit your 1st 100k of savings, focus on compounding it well.

It depends on your total assets. If you only have 100k cash then you should invest some. But if you have like a few million in stocks and bonds, 100k cash is pretty good

For small time investors, aim to trade $5,000 or more per trade in stocks. This minimise the brokerage fees (and other fees), while being in the market. And also, since your bullet is limited, pick a few stocks you think will be higher performing. (Like doing ETF investment but on your own). Alternatively, just go for an ETf for no headaches

The best investment is savings. Spending habits should remain around the same and not increase when your salary increase. In times of retrenchment and your spending power goes down, your liabilities will hunt you. E.g. Installments.
