Originally for this post and episode of the “How To Freelance” mini series, I thought I’d dive right into different types of retirement plans for freelancers. Then I changed my mind. What’s the point of asking people to save money, or ways to save money without understanding the big picture of money. I use a very simple approach to grow my money everyday. In this article, I’ll summarize what the key points and credit the folks and mentors who taught me everything along the way.
A bit about my background: I became obsessed with personal finance books in my very early 20s. My parents didn’t teach me a thing about finance or personal investment while I was growing up. I knew I had to learn so much more on my own. It was an exploratory process. As an immigrant living in America, I had to be proactive about managing my own money since the age of 17. I have many people to thank for who helped me realize that the answer is NOT Wall Street, or a personal advisor, or some scammy report you buy for hundreds of dollars.
This subject can often be controversial. I welcome your comments, debate - hopefully with the intent for us to all get much smarter about making money.https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/feisworld/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/feisworld/support
