I've been thinking and reading about this but it seems most of the earnings you have to make on the stock exchange or other investments.
I've calculated my number roughly (by 4% rule) and it was around 1m euro which is really hard to earn on the day-to-day jobs especially outside of the US. But it's interesting to try with investments somewhere in the future.

Currently, I'm thinking about a similar move as early retirement but I don't know the term for that. When you have some savings for a year or two and you quit your job to try to start your business.
Right now it sounds real and interesting for me.
