And what actually makes a difference to becoming financially free

Financial freedom is the buzzword that has us all wanting to become millionaires, to quit our jobs, and retire on a beach somewhere exotic. But sadly, the reality for most is that this dream will never see the light of day.

It’s not for lack of trying, but it’s just the way the system is set up: to mislead you with misinformation, so you stay on the hamster wheel, paying your taxes and working well into your 60s.

What if you could break free of this system? Well, you can, and all it takes is creating a few new habits…

A legacy poem

The day will come where
All will cease to be
A day when I will no longer clasp
My pen and write
As I once freely did

One day no words will crawl
From my aged lips
And I will no longer take
Careful sips
From my English tea

Instead I will lay motionless
Still, a state in which
No medicine will recover me

I will no longer feel the burn
Of love or pain
I’ll be allowed not to protest in disdain
Or listen to my offspring complain
Inhibited from going insane


I’ll have my tender life strings…
