Financial independence, ‘early retirement’, whatever you want to call it, financial freedom is about more than just having money.
Financial freedom means you can do what you want in your life, be who you want to be, follow your true purpose without having to worry about money.
Sounds like the stuff of dreams doesn’t it?
How is it even possible without a successful 9 to 5 job or a couple hundred thousand plus followers on Instagram?
Financial intelligence is crucial. It is understanding how to generate a smart income, and then knowing how to have that money work for you and your lifestyle to then maximise that income.
It is an awareness of how money works and how to make the most of it.
The path to financial independence is one of personal growth, emotionally, spiritually and practically – not to sound too dramatic.
The path may not always be smooth, but in the end you’ll be able to generate a passive income that covers living costs and still allows you to do exactly what you want to do.
If we’re being completely honest, you’re constantly going to be tied down living paycheck to paycheck until you understand how to handle your money for your lifestyle.
In order to become financially ‘free’ you must first determine where you are now, where you want to be, what vehicle is going to get you there and what changes you need to make.
