What is the point? Why be free?
I started my financial journey with this simple question: What do I want to get out of life and how can I use money as a tool to get there? I had to start with this. I had to know why I was so interested in money and why people spend so much of their time thinking about it and trying to earn a little bit of it. I realized that my time is really what is truly important to me. I want to be able to spend time doing things I love, hanging out with my family, and making and building things that are significant. I want to be able to help people without a life full of nagging obligations and needless stress. And I have now learned that money, and surprisingly little, can be the tool to do just that.
