"Money does buy happiness, if you earned it."
I agree that there are many gurus who say that achieving financial freedom is effortless and happens quickly. It is important to understand that the key factors in achieving such goals are usually hard work and dedication. As Tim pointed out, those who have achieved financial freedom have often worked harder than others, driven by their passion and obsession with what they do.
A job isn’t gonna make it happen !!!!!!!!!!!! I have been deceived my entire life. I will be 28 before the end of the year and ever since I started working at 15. I thought I could save my way to the life I wanted. I was not taught to invest or look at other streams of income outside of a 9 to 5. I am so happy that people are talking about being financial free. Living is greatest thing we can do while we're on this planet. The knowledge I have gained since 2020 has been exceptionally and I plan to make sure the generation behind me will have something to look forward to in their futures not just working until they die.
Tim, thank you for opening people's mind and showing them they dont have to work forever.
I didn’t know you survived cancer, Tim. I survived a genetic liver disease, ending in transplant. And ever since that post- transplant period, I’ve wanted to succeed in my writing. I wrote 3 novels while I was sick and I’ve never taken the opportunity of a new life to do the rewrites and ship them. I also read a lot about climate change and want to write an accessible blog/newsletter for individuals to do what they can in mitigation. This one letter from you, pushed me over the edge into doing MY work. Thanks, Tim
Keeping it real. Good stuff.
You can’t plan for financial freedom because your path will be different from everyone else! This is gold.
We got out of rat race in the back of real estate but dealing with the people involved, agents, tenants and especially body corps made us move it all elsewhere. But you gotta have a gig in retirement. May as we’ll be a good writer. When I write Age with Attitude, I have to keep stepping up as an ager as well as a writer. Just watching the Tim and Todd show and doing the work.
Simple solid advice!
Now... I just need to think of a business idea :/
Man's search for meaning. Without it we are lost.
Great piece Tim
Love love your headline Tim! I laughed so hard as I scanned my inbox. Your 5 words jumped out. No magic, no sugar coating - just clear direction, in plain English - thank you 😊
Thank you Tim. You supplied what I've noticed was missing in newsletters of this genre.
You boiled the ____ and vinegar out of it. I'm grateful.
Thanks Tim for posting such amazing newsletters. Your sentences hit deeply & I do love to ponder on your lines.
Keep posting such ideas, May you get more wisdom. Thanks!
You earn something you do something-you get paid..... Do NOTHING WTF do you expect!!!
I'm so sick to death of seeing do you want to earn $10k a month no work involved no this no that but shit your going to get $10k a month.... OMG yes guilty here!!! Nothing in life is free of its worth it..... And if it sounds to good to be true... It damn well is... Run a country mile before parting with your hard earned cash....
This was a top-notch piece. Keep up the encouragement, Tim!
