(What if) Financial Freedom
Being financial freedom and travelling around the world ~ is what most people want. This is also what I want when I was at the age of 25+ :P
For me, I define financial freedom as I have sufficient cash in (passive income) without for me to work for 9 to 5 cubicle-work. Apparently, if I choose to work, the job must be something that interesting and I passionate about. I have abundant life and to live abroad (long stay) in the countries that I like. I am pursuing towards this path...my own version of Financial Freedom.
This lovely couple, Jeremy (Go Curry Cracker) and Winnie (Winnie's Chinese blog) , uses 10 years to build up their investment portfolio and quit their jobs in their 30s. Now, they are living a nomad life, choose to travel the world at this young age (with their 10 months old son). I read their story last year, and guess what, they stopped by Kuala Lumpur in their recent Asia travel trip. I am so grateful that I can meet them in person ! Jeremy and Winnie spared time to meet up with KL fans on Mar 3.
I gained a lot insights from the meet up. Thanks Jeremy and Winnie.
(Read here) How did the the couple does that ?
In short, they saved most of their payroll (70%), maximise their investment portfolio, maintain minimalist lifestyle and no debts (means no house and no car).
Abundance is not about owning material. Abundance is a mindset.
