The same answer to that question, also answers these questions:
How do I live without a job?
How do I quit my job?
How can I be free from work, and live without an income?
I live without working full time, and I will share how.

I Only Want To Work Part Time
People from across society have freed themselves from the workplace, while some have simply reduced their hours and work part time.
Many of them recognised a key idea they needed to change. They identified a simple fact which could drastically reduce their need for money.
It is muttered in forums, YouTube comments and is the subject of this post: Just stop wanting things.
I’m not talking about new trainers, or a new car. More than that, work out what you actually need to live. Start there.
As easy has it is written, and as easily as it is read, it still doesn’t resonate with everyone.
You can drastically reduce your living requirements, should you please. And in doing so, you might be able to work part-time, or maybe, escape the rat race altogether.
Live Without Working Full Time
I used to earn a decent wage in a horrible job. I realised I was caught in a spending loop which entailed wasting money, instead of building wealth. Once I stopped -completely stopped, and exited the entire game, I found I could save over 50% of my income.
There are big questions here, like can I downside my home? What about dependants, can I still give them money/support them? What about going out? What about… The list is endless, and for each person to deal with. However, there are examples of nearly every dynamic succeeding in achieving freedom from work, you just have to search them out.
For the next step, I needed to save a back-up fund.
A back-up fund is easy to save, with a new mindset.
The fund was important, because I didn’t know if I’d ever get a chance to earn that kind of money again. Once I had the back-up fund, I went part-time at work.
I could’ve stayed part-time, but wanted the ability to fully quit my job. To do that, I needed another income source:
How To Make Money Without A Job
Living without working full-time is straight forward problem solving: Spend less, earn less. But what if you want more stuff, like a new car? New clothes? Or just want to go spending because you’re bored?
Nope? You just want to live without working full time?
Well, once you’re free from a full time occupation, you may start to feel differently about how you spend your time. You may also want to spend a little more money. Or, you may want to quit work altogether.
The solution is simple: A small business.
It could generate a little pocket money, or completely free you from work -which is how we quit our jobs.
An Idea That Might Work
There are no winners or losers in this race -Just you, and your time.
This formula worked for us, and it’s awesome not going to work anymore.
