Welcome to your Weekend Reading, over a coffee or a beer or a glass of wine this weekend.
Earlier this week I shared how I would manage a $1 million portfolio and for the first time ever on this site, I shared what I thought might be an age whereby we could achieve financial freedom.
To clarify, “freedom journey” this is not about us leaving the workforce for good, cold turkey. It’s about providing more choices regarding how we work, where we work and what we work at. Plans are always estimates about the future, based on what you know and what you don’t know. This makes plans subject to change and we’re open to those changes – but I think it’s important to have some goals to strive towards even if the future is unknown; things associated with family, relationships, career, finance and so on. Anyhow, drop me a comment or an email and let me know what you think about plans shared on this site or in general.
Enjoy your weekend!
