They say mom knows best. Growing up, my mom always told me to marry a rich man, like a doctor or lawyer. I’m sure that some of you reading this got similar advice. What!? I mean seriously. Why marry the CEO when you can be the CEO!
FACT: 82% of women are concerned that Social Security will not be there when they are ready to retire. 🙋
What is financial freedom? Financial freedom to me means not having to depend on anyone to take care of you. It’s about taking charge of your life and your financial future. 🔮 It means that you do not have to depend on a job or a man to take care of you. Because who wants that?
💰 The first step to financial freedom is to get educated about money and investing. Welcome, boo! I got your back. Remember that you are never too young or old to learn about investing. Every expert had to get started somewhere. I know that taking risks can be scary, but you will never get out of your comfort zone if you don’t take that first step.
So here are some action steps that you can take today to get started in real estate investing and begin to take charge of your financial freedom:
- Read books about investing
- Check out the finance section of news money websites, such as Yahoo Finance
- Listen to podcasts
- Watch online video courses
- Read blogs about personal finance and investing
