“Financial independence” — doesn’t it just sound wonderful? In the technical sense, that phrase specifically refers to one’s ability to cover their expenses exclusively through income generated by their assets… or, in layman’s terms: they don’t have to work. That’s all well and good, but I don’t believe a phrase as genuinely inspiring as “financial independence” should be that severely limited.
Hi. My name is Kyle Burbank and I’m a Millennial. Yes, I say this like it’s some sort of healing admission given the bad rap my generation has endured in recent years. You know — the talk about how anyone under 35 is lazy, entitled, and doesn’t even know how to really be an adult? While I strongly resent that generalization, I have to say that I've certainly made a few mistakes along the way myself, especially when it comes to finance.
