Achieving Financial Independence
I’ve meant to do this for some time now but this week, I’ve finally come around to planning and shooting a video series on achieving financial independence. It will feature content from a new keynote I’ve developed (but haven’t promoted on my website yet) called ‘The Sensible Way To Financial Freedom’.
I feel that such a video series is quite timely given that many folks have been battered by the recession and along with dismal rates of return on such investments as mutual funds and GICs, any help in terms of personal finance will be appreciated. I’ve taken significant steps and changes as a result of the financial scene so I thought that I would share what my tactics were.
Financial Independence Requires Education
The sad fact is that personal finance and how to achieve financial independence were not topics that any of us learned at school whether at the high school level or the college level. This is extremely important life skill information that is missing in our educational systems.
One of the end results of this is the fact that so many people in society are not financially well and this includes those who are high income earners as well since consumer debt levels are at outrageously high levels. Many folks basically spend more than they make.
The one great hope is that financial independence is still very much possible if one takes the proper steps. I’ve gone through an educational shift in personal finance and when combined with my personal development strategies such as expanding my comfort zones (as outlined in many of my keynotes, Motivational WebTV videos and my book, The Life Champion In You), I was able to put myself in a very good position towards financial independence.
Personal Finance Information In 3 Parts
This series will end up as a 3-part video series much like the one I did for expanding comfort zones which all of my registered readers and viewers get access to. Some of the content gets pretty detailed especially when we are dealing with numbers so I thought it would be best to divide everything up in 3 separate videos.
The videos are shot and the first two are actually edited. Just one more (the one with the most personal finance information) to edit and I will launch them to the world. I see a launch early next week so stay tuned.
