You don’t have to make a fortune (or even an above average salary) to become wealthy.
But you must, must, must, must get your spending under control if wealth is your goal.
This world we live in is already difficult enough as it is. Having a network of people who care about you and want you to succeed makes dealing with everyday realities so much easier!
When you see something, decide you want it, and then give into that impulse, you’re allowing the childlike, emotional, and impulsive part of your brain (the amygdala and other associated structures) to take control. Do you really want your financial decisions to come down to a childlike emotional reaction?

Financial Independence is a lifestyle. It’s not for everyone. But just like any hobby or passion – sports, arts, theater, cooking, another language, etc., financial independence is a common goal of a community. Being part of a group of like-minded people is invaluable for a number of reasons.
If you had to give just 1 tip that you’ve learned along your journey, what would it be and why?
Tawnya – People will always tell you to do what you love. Some others might push you to find a career that makes good money. I’d say you must have a balance of both. You’re not automatically set with a college degree anymore, and with the increase in student loans many people are entering careers they “love” that don’t allow them to make a decent living and get out of debt. On the flip side, those who chose high paying careers only may find themselves hating their job. My advice would be to find a balance. Find a career you can tolerate that makes decent money, and understand that there will be good and bad points to each job.
Sebastian – Making a good meaningful living takes hard work, discipline, and commitment to succeed. Look for opportunities rather than hanging your head down after adversities. Feel good about getting up and going to school and work, it is a privilege!
