Taxes…inflation…devaluation of currency…hidden fees…these days financial security is practically nonexistent for the majority of the world, and following the “norm” means being in debt.
Whether you’re trying to ignore the millions of ads encouraging you to buy more and save less—or you’re just trying to keep the federal government from ravaging your paycheck—financial freedom is tricky. Being financially independent in the modern world means learning to avoid numerous pitfalls and traps set up by disingenuous institutions like banks and creditors, while embracing the future potential of digital, decentralized currencies.
Fortunately, these days there are more ways to save and more options for lucrative investments than ever before. By using “sharing economy” apps like Airbnb you can take vacations for a fraction of their normal cost. Transportation is also cheaper than ever, as low-cost options like Uber and Lyft edge out the big taxi companies and save you cash in the process. Digital currencies present an attractive alternative to the stock market, with some popular options growing over 1,000% in value over a one year period.
Digital currencies also allow you to spend your money free from the prying eyes of credit card companies…and whoever they share information with. With more and more outlets accepting bitcoin, spending in digital currency is getting easier.
To us, financial freedom means being able to escape the rat race and the stress of living paycheck to paycheck. It’s a process that begins by reducing costs through careful planning and by knowing where to look. Living cheaply doesn’t necessarily mean having to cut back or pare down. Some smart thinking will allow you to enjoy a luxurious lifestyle at a reduced cost.
The institutions we shell out thousands to every month don’t want us to know there are cheaper ways of living life. They’ll do everything in their power to keep us from finding out. Don’t let them keep you in the dark. There IS a better way.
