Whatever your action plan, be it a side hustle, part-time job, or playing the stocks, that topic of financial freedom is not as easy as we sometimes make it sound. Financial freedom means that you are in charge of your money and you are living the life you want, outside of the fear of not having enough money. So what does it take to get there? It really can come down to 2 changes that you create and live for a few years. Here they are –
Change #1 – Chose A Solid Income
[This post contains ads] While we can look at those who work the stock markets and believe them to have a sixth sense, really gaining financial freedom is about picking the best methods to earn money for you and sticking with it.
Ultimately, if we learn the skills in one area, we can stick with it, and give it the time it deserves. When we constantly jump from job to job, we are wasting the time and energy we invested, while creating financial instability as we try to launch the next job, gig or hustle.
Consider doing something like becoming a Lyft driver or opening an Amazon seller account. This can be enough for those that are looking for some additional pocket money. Brock Johnson shows you how to create an Amazon seller account at this link, but remember it does take time to build up a busines. Choose the right method and give it time.
Change #2 – Spend Less Than You Make!
We only earn a certain amount of money, right? And, that means we need to make sure we are setting out a plan about how and where to spend that income. Remember, budgeting is one of those skills that is necessary when you want to live a wealthy life; it’s not about showing that you’ve got money to throw at any problem!
When we live within our means, we will have money spare, allowing us to began to find that sense of financial freedom. Keeping it simple is the best approach. To get to financial freedom, it’s about developing these money habits that ensure we are careful with what we spend. Once we are able to be intentional with our buying habits, we are well on our way to financial freedom.
