    Being around alligators every once in a while has killed my sense of fear of them because I haven't had the luck to see them do anything.

    Looking up alligator deaths on Wikipedia, it looks like it is mostly getting attacked due to having dogs that are about the right size for prey, being a child that is about the right size, or swimming in the water with alligators.

    Alright, I'm pretty settled on my course of action, which is that I'm going to save for the next few months, then cash out my 401k

    ...

    The only reason I'm so comfortable with cashing out on my 401k, of course, is simply because my actual retirement plan remains what it has always been; inheritance.

    This is a roadmap for failure.

    Define failure. I'm fucking sick of living scared in the shadow of wealth.

    Winky, tanking your financial stability by simultaneously leaving your job for an independent venture, pulling out from your 401k, and tapping your backup inheritance plan for money is way more likely to result in you being stuck in a corporate job "in the shadow of wealth" than going about things in a less risky way.

    Pursue your projects, sure, but don't do so by simultaneously cutting or straining every anchor you have. Leave the 401k alone, set up the independent freelance work before doing the projects, and guarantee the projects with your own cash or family loans instead of your 401k.

    Hm, if I spend a few more months working here and/or can get a family loan I may actually be able to avoid cashing out the 401k, and I agree it's a better plan in terms of hedging and stability. If it's possible I'll take that route.

    But my 401k is not huge, it's not like I'm abandoning years of building it, cashing out on my 401k right now would set me back about a year. And as for leaving my job; my skills are a ridiculously hot commodity right now. This is about the most aggressive labor market for what I do that there has ever been. I'd be better off trying to take advantage of that hiring frenzy now by trying to establish my own projects in the next few months and then pull the rip cord back to a corporate job if I can't make it happen while this is still the case rather than waiting for a time when job security might become a much more attractive prospect for me.

    It's also the case that stability is and always has been the thing I value least. I know for a fact that in the past I've been able to support myself off my own projects and was doing better then than I am now until a series of bad decisions led to the project's failure, but I also legitimately believe I've learned the most important lessons I need to in order to not fail a second time, at least not for the same reasons.

    Doing this now is not exceptionally more likely to condemn me to a retirement eating rats than it is to condemn me to one-to-two more years of having to work before I can retire. The honest truth is that I have way more faith in my own marketable skills and connections than I do in my 401k.

    That also raises flags for me honestly.

    If it's such a relatively small amount than it seems like it wouldn't take that much more effort for you to just be patient for a short while and obtain it without kablooeying the money in that 401k that is going to increase multiple times over if it just stays there.

    It just seems like a really rash decision.

    if we're able to move this year we'll probably rent for a year instead of buying a house, for example, as I'm pretty jittery re the possibility of prices tanking etc

    It's not too bad. Sometimes I think about cashing it all out in pennies and building a swimming pool full of pennies...

    I wonder how much that would weigh.....well some quick googling says 181 pennies per pound, so...

    Oh that gets heavy fast.

    Yeah, I may just be too eager to get out of here. Waiting an entire six months to a year sounds incredibly unattractive to me, but it may make more sense. I guess I'll see after I've discussed with my dad and my boss.

    This is actually something I wanted to get ahead of if I could, but I realize that's absolutely playing Russian roulette. I'm going to be in a much worse situation to be unemployed for a few months and then just get hired back up after the recession hits than I am before it does, but if the recession hits in the middle of me being unemployed I'm fucked either way. Then I'll probably be waiting things out for even longer.
