Most people, as they are growing up, only dream of being financially well off. They hope that one day, before they are too old, they’ll be able to travel the world and do all the amazing things they see on tv.
The truth is that it is possible. People like Michael Masterson are teaching people how to be financially independent like them. It doesn’t take crazy schemes or impossible tasks. Just common sense and starting early makes it so much easier.
I’m working my way to be what I consider to be financially independent. When I think of that, I think of not having to worry about how I’m going to pay the power bill each month.
