Becoming Financially Independent

Because this July 4th is quite different from years before, it may be a good time to reflect on how the idea of independence has changed in light of the pandemic. One thing I’ve learned is how much I depend on those around me, from my family and friends to doctors, nurses, and other and essential workers, like grocery store clerks and janitorial staff.

Achieving financial independence also requires a high level of interdependence. Solid finances are put together through a combination of budgets, savings, and investments. But success for the individual comes through the cooperation and consideration of family, friends, business partners, employers, and more. I can help you create a financial strategy that focuses on interdependence and long-term goals.

Here are some articles I found interesting and insightful. Have a safe and happy Fourth of July weekend.
