For one moment I am not saying they are all a sham there are probably some very good ones in there but we see some WSO's and even our signatures allure to wealth beyond ones wildest fantasy's and more and yes you to can have financial independence.
Some say with our magical bullet proof system you can quit your day job and gain your FI all for 9.95 down and by the droves the sheeple line up and pay the fiddler man his dues.
All chasing that all elusive financial freedom, but how many think financial freedom is swapping your day job for your own business ? it is sold like that at times / every player every player step right up and ye shall win the main prize in life.
So we all buy the hope and dreams of this all demanding dream of financial independence but what is it really, how is it defined by you ? is it replacing your job ? is it xyz in the bank / do people really know what financial independence is ?
I am looking at writing a small book on part this topic and am very interested in what people really think financial Independence is to them, and if people know exactly what it takes to get it.
The terms or understanding I have is it is a income based derived from investments and or residual / other income that will pay you to live for the rest of days until end. This number would be different for each person.
Now thats financial Independence but not financial freedom as just having independence does not allow you to run a muck and spend what you need to live on, you need even more than that amount to play with.
So what are the common beliefs, it is sold here in the bucket loads so there must be plenty of views on this as everybody seems to be selling it or chasing it?
