This is a big one. But it doesn’t have to be scary. You and I are going to explore what real financial independence (FI) is all about. It doesn’t require winning the lottery, getting a hot stock tip, or selling your .com startup for mega-millions. But this is not get-rich-quick scheme. This is the slowest get rich plan out there. But give it time/discipline and it will work.

Remember the mantra: EVERY 1 DOLLAR YOU DO NOT SPEND IS 2 YOU DO NOT NEED TO MAKE. You’d better remember. It may be the most important statement you may ever commit to memory.

  2. optimize you spending for maximum happiness
  3. saving and investing
