I'm from USA, but have been living in SE Asia. I'm in my mid-20s. I never had a "real" job. I've always made my money online. I made the mistake of spending way too much when I first started making more than I've ever experienced. I then learned about the very marginal difference in happiness I received from things that comprised most of my income (i.e. Housing, Food). And I also developed the mindset of applying the Pareto's Law 80/20 to everything... so I feel these principles brought me to ERE.
FYI: I've started a journal where I shared more about how I make money, health, my expense breakdown, etc. I'm open to suggestions and questions on that thread: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=9102
Nice to meet you!
