We are likely to be the one to be retrenched and will start getting concerned whether we could then support our kids through university and have enough food and shelter over their heads. Some of us may already have witnessed some senior colleagues being sent off.
We need to have other source of passive income while currently being employed and working towards the goal of staying employed as an option and we are ready to be sent off when it comes.
Investing is one way to achieve this goal but it requires us to put in fair amount of effort and time to acquire knowledge, skill and discipline to accumulate wealth. We could start with any amount of capital and slowly add more capital as year passes by and through prudent investing to reach our goal.
