Your Why of Financial Independence

Why do you want to become Financially Independent? You now have your definition and are intrigued enough to pursue it – 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”. This Fiology lesson encourages you to answer why you want to pursue and reach Financial Independence. Of course your answer will change over time but it is important to never lose focus of your why.
