F.I.R.E. – Financial Independence Retire Early

by Jul 17, 2020

Working a high paying corporate job may not be the recipe for your happiness.

Financial freedom is definitely not a one-size fits all situation. We all have different wants, needs, and desires for our ideal lifestyles… which means we all have to take different roads to achieve them. 

Even as I’ve made moves to diversify my income and heed the advice of a variety of financial gurus, I struggle to make money just for the sake of making money. 

Remember my story? I left my big corporate job behind because it wasn’t helping me be fulfilled. I started coaching and training people. I opened my own gyms. Today, I’m running my platform while balancing my time as a property owner. 

And no, not every day doing your own thing is going to feel amazing either. Yet, it’s important to recognize that sometimes those big “ideal” jobs with great pay suck the life out of you and your daily joys. 

So on this episode, I’m going to walk you through F.I.R.E and how you can find ways to balance your expenses without completely giving up what you love doing, and without selling your soul to a grind you don’t want to. 

Financial freedom comes with time and commitment, and a willingness to take risks when they show themselves.

Life doesn’t have to be spent slaving away for dollars and cents if you don’t want it to be!
