A common trait amongst financially free people is that they are not shackled by conventional thinking. Traditional career paths with titles and corporate ladders are of little interest to them. They are contrarians who are quite comfortable zigging while others are zagging.
The financially free’s mantra is to support their lifestyle by generating income from their assets or avocations instead of a job. So, their days are spent maximizing the return on their eBay business or rental properties. Preferably this income is generated in fewer hours than the standard 9 to 5. If structured correctly the revenue will continue to come in while vacationing or on the golf course. As the number of working hours is significantly reduced, your time can be reallocated to focus what is truly important to you and your family. Hence, financial freedom provides you both time AND money.
