There are so many ways to be financially free. Anyone can climb up the stages of FI with a simple nine to five and reach financial freedom relatively quickly. If you work a steady job with good security and simply save until your nest-egg is sufficient to support your expenses, you can retire early or move on to work on projects you enjoy.
We talked about it in the past; we plan on reaching financial freedom in less than a decade. There is no secret to reaching financial freedom; work hard, spend less than you earn, and save a large portion of your income.
For every dollar you save, you are slowly buying yourself time. If you are saving 75% of your income, you are buying yourself three years of retirement for each year you work.
With the New Year comes new dreams, new objectives, and new plans. In our case, this year is our new baby year, where we will focus all our energy on raising our baby girl, but there will be much, much more to come.
This is all part of our life plan. We do not plan every little bit of our life, we need some spontaneity, but the general outline greatly helps.
