What does financial freedom mean to you?
To me it means that you no longer make decisions based on your finances. You make decisions based off what is going to make you the happiest, safest, and excited.
Living paycheck to paycheck is motivating but people become slaves to the money or whomever is giving them the money.
When you are financially free then money is not a concern. There is no reason to worry about money. Everything is paid for like food, clothes, housing, travel costs, and entertainment.
You are living life on your terms.
