I’ve previously posted my reasons for choosing financial stability.
Well, in honor of April – National Financial Literacy Month – I thought I would elaborate on one of my most popular posts.
Disclaimer: I do not work in finance. I do not have a degree in finance. I never even took a class in finance. My advice should not be considered a financial service or a substitute for that of a financial advisor. This is simply the method that has worked for me based on my own personal financial experience.
In 8 Reasons to Choose Financial Independence, I discussed the reasons I fight for financial freedom. Why I work every day to get out of debt, build an 8-month emergency fund and contribute monthly to my retirement account.
More than just a celebration of financial literacy, I needed a reminder of why I’m making so many daily sacrifices for my future self.
After freelancing for the past 4 months, I’ve eaten through about half of my savings. Now that I’ve found a full-time position, I think it’s important to get myself back on track towards the goals I’d set 3 years ago.
For that reason, April will be devoted to financial literacy.
This will include a 4 part series to help you avoid a financial crisis and find stability.
Edit: The series is complete! Enjoy!
