EP 119: Stages of Wealth: The Journey to Financial Independence (Part 2)

The path to financial independence is difficult but is definitely achievable.

(insert ‘if I can do it, you can do it’ cringe comment 😅)

In my experience, there are six different stages of wealth that you will encounter before you reach financial independence.

Now, the first level is to build a consistently successful business…

Then, you’ll need to save buffers that will cultivate a stable environment and create deposits

As well as invest your monthly profits to increase your passive income to the point where it’s no longer all about the business’s profits.

E.g., if a client was to leave your business… it won’t be the end of the world like it used to be.

So, once you’ve reached this milestone…
You have hit the level of financial stability and sustainability.

Personally, this is the point where my properties have started to be more reliable than my business.

Businesses are volatile and unpredictable.

But hard assets like property (there are other asset options, too) can provide reassurance when the time comes for you to take your foot off the accelerator.

Because… let’s be honest, it’s unrealistic to expect to grind forever with no end in sight.

At this stage, it may be time to live a bit more for the lifestyle aspects
As well as spend more time with your family and friends.

It’s about choosing what you want to do, not necessarily what you have to do.

However, don’t be fooled…
I’m not suggesting that you should buy a Rolex and charter yachts (…yet 😉)

The next tiers are financial independence and the “let’s get wild” stage.

Eventually, you’ll reach a point where you can choose to work on projects that excite you,
With people you want to be around.

Fortunately, you’re right around the corner!
