Are you disappointed by your finances?
Does checking your account balances feel disappointing?
Have you worked hard, but still have some nagging debt or a lack of savings?
You're not alone.
If you’re like me and most people I know, no one ever taught you personal finance growing up.
Instead, you’ve always known you should “save," but as life happened you ended up with too many expenses, a lack of savings and maybe even some debt or student loans...
And you've found yourself somewhat stuck in "normal life."
So what do you do?
Yep, I did this too.
I was thousands of dollars in debt, had literally no savings and was clueless of how or where to start.
I always thought of myself as a "live in the moment" person who spent my time in the present doing what I wanted, so it seemed okay.
But after sweeping it under the rug for months (okay, yeah it was years...), I began to feel this underlying stress that one day soon money was going to keep me from doing what I love with my time.
And one day it hit.
I was slapped with nearly five figures of unforeseen taxes. I had to sell my car and other beloved items and the scare made me leave doing what I loved because I felt beholden to money.
That was when I realized I had to step up and address it.
I began studying everything I could and hired a personal financial advisor to help me learn what other financially secure people already knew. And to be honest, I had plenty of screw ups along my path (like the $8000 I lost on a hell-hole of a car).
But each time I stumbled, I made it a point to learn how to avoid the same fate down the road.
As time went by I started saving +60% of every paycheck, and, in just a few years, grew my net worth to over $100k (on an average income of $55k/yr).
As I re-designed my life toward financial independence...
- I learned that following traditional financial advice is freedom suicide.
- I figured out how to stick to a stupidly simple budget that enabled my values and goals.
- I put in place processes that made it so I grew my wealth automatically in the background.
- And most of all, I ended up with peace of mind with my finances and freedom with my life.
