What is Financial Independence?

Financial independence is generally used to describe the state of having sufficient personal wealth to live, without having to work actively for basic necessities. For financially independent people, their assets generate income that is greater than their expenses.  

Financial Independence is something very few think they can reach. For many, especially if you are just starting out on your journey, credit card debt, student loans and crazy spending habits make the goal of being financially independent seem nearly impossible. Here at Journey to Launch, we help you see that this goal is possible, but that it’s achievable for you.
