It’s not about making more money. I have very little interest in material things. I live in a small house. I drive a Honda that is several years old. As long as there is a computer, an internet connection and a coffee shop nearby, I’ll be pretty happy.
However, I work really hard. I want to achieve financial independence. This is not because I want to have a lot of money so that I can retire or buy a lot of stuff. That’s not what I want.
I want to have control over what I do, what kind of people I work with, and where I live and work. It’s about freedom. It’s about having control over the most importance resource I have — my time, my mind and my body.
It’s impossible to achieve the above if I continue to work for a corporation.
This is about working for myself. This is about choose myself.
