This is the month in which all of America celebrates our nation’s independence from English rule. Independence is a wonderful thing. And since we live in the land of the free and the home of the brave, we have the privilege of establishing our individual ideas of what financial freedom means. You can establish any goal you like and work toward it.
Today, it seems more Americans are having to struggle harder for financial independence. Even though most never strive for financial independence with a solid plan and consistency, it isn’t that difficult to achieve.
I’ve been helping clients work toward and achieve financial independence for several decades. It is exciting to watch as my clients establish their goals and commit to a plan despite the hardships that occasionally occur during the process. I’m not saying it’s easy. Not at all. In the beginning it may seem overwhelming. However, like anything else, the more consistently you do something, the easier it becomes.
The way I define financial independence is as follows: Having enough income to pay for living expenses for the rest of your life without having to be employed or dependent on others.
You may define it differently, however, as you get on in years, you may not want to work at all. You may want to enjoy retirement in the same style that you have during your working years. That requires planning and making your money work for you, so you don’t have to work for it.
Are you willing to fight for your financial independence? Have you begun? Have you got a solid plan of action in place? If you’ve not begun or if your current plan doesn’t seem to be all you hoped for, give us a call. I live to help people achieve financial independence. Let’s set a date for your Independence Day celebration!
