Posted on

Listen to it on Apple Podcasts or Spotify.

Here are top five takeaways from this episode:
1. It’s crucial to define what financial freedom means to you. Take the time to reflect on your values, priorities, and goals. Don’t just follow advice blindly, but create a plan that aligns with your unique vision.

2. Building financial freedom requires taking action and being proactive. Don’t wait for opportunities to come to you, but try out different income streams, products, and marketing strategies until you find what works for your situation.

3. Sustainability is key. It’s tempting to aim for short-term financial gains, but in the long run, having a stable, predictable income is much more valuable. Focus on creating a business that will last, not just one that makes a quick buck.

4. Saying “it is what it is” can be dangerous. While acceptance is important, you don’t want to feel stuck or hopeless. Recognize when change is possible and desirable, and then take action to make it happen.

5. Freedom is a multifaceted concept. It’s not just about having a lot of money, but about having control over your time, energy, and relationships. Prioritise doing work that you love, treating yourself with kindness, and cultivating a support system that will help you achieve your goals.
