I read this as “Being financial and professionally independent doesn’t solve all your problems.”

Kean, thanks so much for bringing up this point. One of the reasons I highlighted the lack of network in the first place is that any time you’re an employee, you have potential friends built in. As a freelancer/entrepreneur/whatever, it’s all you. Not just the work, but the social life. It’s easy to forget what normal human beings are like when we disappear into our work.

I have a tendency to forget relationships are a huge part of the human condition, and in fact every bit as important (or more) than the moneys or freedom.
