Ever think about how nice it’d be to live off your own assets and not be dependent on a paycheck from your job? Ever think about how you’d be free to spend your time following your interests and hobbies?
It doesn’t matter how old you are, where you live, or what type of job you have. If someone were to ask you what your biggest financial objective was, I’m guessing it has something to do with building enough wealth to live comfortably off of.
You might call it retirement. You might call it financial “flexibility”. Really, we’re talking about financial independence.
But as you know, achieving financial independence doesn’t happen overnight. It takes years of making good financial decisions, saving more than you spend, and being conscious of your long term objectives. The problem is that it takes a fair amount of financial knowledge to make good those financial decisions.
Can the information you need be found online? Absolutely. But it can be difficult to separate the noise from what’s actually important. And it can be close to impossible to separate the genuine information you can trust from marketing material meant to sell you a product.
That’s why I created Above the Canopy: to help you separate the noise and biased sales pitches from what’s actually relevant. On this blog I try to cover the information you need to make consistently smart financial decisions and achieve financial independence on your terms.
