Guy Sells His IT Firm, Earns A Fortune, Buys Cars & Travels But Couldn’t Find Happiness

You might hear a lot of people say that money cannot buy happiness. Many also argue against it and claim that money can, in fact, buy happiness and those who say otherwise have a lot of money to begin with. However, the relationship between money and happiness is complex. While financial stability promises a comfortable and stress-free life, being excessively rich cannot guarantee happiness.

Abid Hassan, who is the founder and CEO of Sensibull took to social media to share an interesting story. He said that he met a guy at the gym who sold his IT security company last year and made a sizeable fortune. He bought luxury cars, travelled and even picked up new hobbies. But he couldn’t find fulfilment.

In the end, he started a new company to give his life some purpose.

“Bro I tried everything. Picked up new hobbies, passions, bought cars, even did 6 month travel of South America. I went mental, so I cut the trip, came back, realized I can’t live without building something and here I am,” the guy told Abid Hassan.

“This I guess is the other side of the Financial Independence debate,” Abid wrote.
