The quest for Freedom has been a part of man’s existence since the beginning of time. Wars have been fought to win it, governments have been formed to protect it, even Jesus of Nazareth spoke of the importance of freedom when he proclaimed, “You shall know the truth [ie. you shall know me], and the truth will set you free.”
Not being God, I can’t promise spiritual freedom or eternal life, but I can help you find the path to Financial Freedom here on earth. In order to do so, we need to answer three questions:
- What does Financial Freedom mean to you?
- How can you achieve it in 10 years or less?
- What can you do today to start the process?
What Does Financial Freedom Mean to You?
Most people would say, “If I don’t have to worry about money, then I’m financially free.” That’s probably a good definition of Financial Freedom, especially in today’s economically challenging environment.
Another definition might be, when your passive income is greater than your expenses then you’re financially free. Let’s look at the two components of this definition, passive income and expenses.
Passive income is income which is not dependent on you’re going to work. It continues to come in whether you get up in the morning or not, and it’s the basis of true financial freedom.
Expenses can vary based on your desired lifestyle. If you’re content to lounge on a beach sipping Mai Tai’s, your expenses will be lower than if you’re jetting about the world, exploring the beauty of dozens of different countries. You have to decide what level of expenses is required to grant you a sense of true Financial Freedom.
How Can You Achieve It in 10 Years or Less?
There are a lot of ways to make money in this world, especially if you have access to a capitalistic economy such as that in the United States. Every work-from-home, MLM or get-rich-quick scheme promises to make you rich, but the truth is that more millionaires have been made through real estate investing than by any other means.
Don’t bail yet!
I know when I mention real estate investing, some of you begin to tune me out. You either say, “I can’t afford to invest in real estate”, or “I don’t know anything about it”, or “It’s too risky”, or some other excuse to not even consider the possibility, but if you truly want to become financially free, and you want to be able to pass that freedom on to your children, you need to at least consider real estate investing.
First, you may have greater access to financial resources than you realize. It’s not necessary, but it’s helpful. Second, you don’t need to be a real estate expert, you just need access to real estate experts. We provide that access, and we can even help you connect with financial partners to get you started.
But let’s get real. There’s no free lunch! Although it’s possible to build a six-digit residual income through real estate investing in a relatively short time, you’re either going to need access to cash and/or credit, or you’re going to need to be willing to put in some significant personal effort. We can help you in both areas.
What Can You Do Today to Start the Process?
The longest journey begins with the first step, but to ensure you get to your destination, you need a plan. You can’t just start walking and hope for the best.
First, you need to know where you are. If you’re flying to LA, it helps to know whether you’re starting from NY or Chicago. We can help you analyse your current financial situation and free up hidden resources, but don’t worry if things seems bleak. We can help you get started even if you have zero cash and zero credit.
Second, you need to decide your definition of financial freedom. Maybe you only need $50,000 a year residual income to feel free, or maybe you need $500,000 or more. You set your own target; you determine your own destiny.
Third, you need to develop a game plan, a road map for getting from point A to point B. If you’re in Chicago and want to go to LA, it will take you less time than if you’re in NY and want to go to Honolulu. Your situation is unique, and you won’t know your own personal time-frame until you go through the three steps.
