Fiology Lesson 2: Why FI?

LESSON 2 : WHY FI?

You now have your definition of Financial Independence (FI) and are intrigued enough to pursue FI – but why? It is important to know the why because this journey can be long, challenging, and at times boring. Knowing the “why” keeps us motivated. And if we truly understand our “why”, we will have the answer when our friends and family ask, “So what’s all this Financial Independence stuff about?” You’ll confidently retort with your “why”.
