Financial Freedom

Financial Freedom = Bliss


At this time of year (Christmas and New Year) many people are on holidays whether they are chosen annual leave, enforced annual leave or public holidays. Isn’t it just a lovely feeling waking up knowing that you have:

  • Slept in,
  • Got up early to go down to the beach
  • Spent all day with the kids
  • Taken a leisurely lunch with your partner
  • Gone away to your favourite holiday location
  • Insert your Christmas holiday routine in here.

The feeling of doing this is bliss. For most people it is annual leave and there will come a day when it will end and you have to go back to the coalface. (Sorry about having to highlight the inevitable)

Many people where we live have big incomes. They are also tied tightly to the riggers of that job or business. Would you answer yes to any of these questions?

  • Do you have four weeks annual leave a year?
  • Are you not able to leave your business for short or long periods of time?
  • If you are not at work, there is no income (after AL or sick leave)?
  • Do you spend one, two or three weeks away from your family on FIFO?
  • If you are retrenched (a fairly common occurrence at the moment) and can’t get a job quickly, what will happen to you and your finances?

Financial Freedom is not having a huge wage or salary. Financial Freedom is more than being able to buy stuff when you want it. Financial Freedom means being able to

  • Do what you want, when you want it
  • Travel whenever you want to
  • Not set the alarm clock
  • Spend time with the people you love

Many people don’t understand our lifestyle but I am going to have a go at explaining it for those interested, looking for something different and willing to make a change.

We work from home or on the road as essentially travel writers and photographers, resulting in lots of travelling. However we also have some financial freedom to do the list above all year round if and when we wish to.

How does that work you may be asking?

Over the last 15 years we have created the travel lifestyle we have by having residual income. In the last 15 years we have written over 80 books that provide some of that residual income. We do understand that we have a particular set of skills and personal circumstance that allowed us to create that. But if you understood residual income, you would walk through a brick wall to get to it.

Residual Income

What residual income means is that work is done initially and you keep getting paid for weeks, months, years to come. We have become serious addicted to Residual Income, so we have been looking for another source because we understand it gives us financial freedom.

This time we have found a source of residual income that anyone, and I mean anyone can do. There are no education requirements, no unique skill levels, no huge financial investment and can be done in the pockets of your life. In fact the better your lifestyle, the better it works.

I know many people look at our life, tell us we are living the dream and then assume they cannot do it. I can tell you that what ever excuses you have for not doing it, we have seen people in exactly the same situation create financial freedom:

  • A brood of kids
  • Busy jobs
  • Retired seniors
  • Hectic mums
  • Single parents
  • Living in small country towns

So what is it, I can hear you saying? There are many names for it and most people will runaway screaming when I say it is Network Marketing. I know how you feel, I was one of those running away screaming until I found a product I was enthusiastic to share. Network marketing, direct selling and multi level marketing are all the same thing. The thing they are not is a pyramid scheme. Firstly pyramid schemes do not have a product and they are illegal. A pyramid is a system where the person at the top is earning the most while all the layers below are doing all the work, not unlike the company you may work for currently.

We spent 15 years learning how to write books, a huge learning curve. Now we are learning network marketing. Like any learning curve you can’t expect to be an expert immediately but we are willing to learn. Especially when we receive our Tuesday morning residual income payment and we get messages from the people whose lives we are changing. No better feeling than that.
