Your Journey To Financial Freedom
We all have a dream. This is true when it comes to finance too. The question is, what holds us back from achieving our financial dreams?
The answer is closer than you think.
Going after your financial dreams is certainly not easy but it certainly is achievable if you are prepared to work at it.
This is part of the valuable, learning process in achieving your dream… but this is only the beginning of your journey to financial freedom.
What is financial freedom?
Financial freedom is much more than having money. It’s the freedom to be who you really are and do what you really want in life. It’s what money can mean for you and what you can do with it that brings the freedom.
For us financial freedom is being able to travel whenever we want and not be tied to a business that keeps us in one place. It also means we can pursue our passion for bringing education to children in the ‘third world’ for whom it is not a right.
We refer to this as your ‘reason why‘
There is no financial saviour – the answer to financial freedom is squarely at your door!
However you choose to embark on the journey of achieving your financial dreams, your success depends on one very important factor – You Creating what you want and figuring out how you will get there in a way that fits your values, your spirit, your interests, and your passion is 100% down to you.
Your plan has to fit you – not the dreams of your parents, your siblings, your spouse, or your friends. To realise your reward of financial freedom really demands that you stay true to your values, your loves, your dreams, your talents – everything that makes you …. YOU.
This is a big dream. And it will take all of you. It will test you at times. If you’re doing this for anyone other than you, then you won’t make it. You will quit. This is why your reason for pursuing your dream, your purpose for your financial journey, has to be what you really want deep down in your heart and soul. It’s your drive and passion that will get you through the rough patches, the doubts, and the setbacks.
But every success you experience will propel you forward.
This is the dream, the very clear vision of what you want. And it’s much more than saying, “I want to be a millionaire.”It’s what you will have once you reach your goal such as, “I will have the freedom to pursue my love of travel,” “I will be able to contribute more to my favorite charity,” “I will be able to spend valuable time with my children,” etc.
This is the education part of do where you gather the information you need to take action. What do you need to study to reach your financial goals, and how are you going to get that information? Whether it’s reading a book, watching a finance video or television program, listening to an investment radio-show, or conducting some research online, set aside some time each day to increase your financial education and learn about money.
This is the stage where most people stop due to fear. But in order to reach goals and be successful, it is necessary to apply the knowledge you acquire and take action.
Achieving Financial Freedom Online
Starting an online business and using our existing skills and talents was the perfect vehicle toward financial freedom for us but we can tell you from experience that you are not going to achieve it by jumping from one ‘get rich quick‘ scheme to the next.
In fact in a recent survey , the number one goal – by a huge margin – was to stop wasting time and money on “shiny objects” and “one click” solutions and finally build a real online business.
- A business that can run on auto-pilot.
- A business that creates passive income and cash flow.
- A business that has real value vs. making a few bucks in commissions
The key word here is A business and the reality is this – it takes time to build a real business. Building a real business and making a few bucks in commissions are COMPLETELY different things.
We have always been clear that you need to build a business and having an online business as your vehicle to financial freedom is no different to any other.
You need to have products to sell that are in demand and you need to know how to market those products so that you have have a constant stream of visitors (potential customers) to your offer(s).
We also believe you should be passionate about your business and the products just as we are. When you are aligned with your business and the products you are selling then you will have the greatest chance of success in your quest for financial freedom.
