Some of my favorite things in life have the initials FF like fast food and the fast and the furious movies however, neither of these come close to the ultimate iteration which is financial freedom. Ever since I learned that you don’t have to live a life strapped to a chair in your cubicle for 40 years, I’ve done everything in my power to ensure that every day I move closer to this ultimate financial goal.

Ask yourself, do you really want to be taking orders from a boss or leaving work unhappy for the next 40 years? Most people don’t and this is just another reason that striving for financial freedom is so important because this is a fate you don’t have to realize.
Now, if the thought of trading in the majority of your life’s clock at a job you don’t enjoy isn’t enough to get you on the financial freedom train then one other critical reason to strive for financial independence is for those you love.
Presently, people are working more hours than ever which leaves little time for family and friends, which if you ask…
