Why Financial Freedom Means You Can Make an Even Bigger Impact
Perhaps you have a desire to launch a product. Maybe you want to monetize your audience. Could be that you “just” want to create something stellar for your fans.
If a content creator, you’ve probably thought about all of this at some point or other. I say “probably” – but here you are reading this!
You know, if you had more financial freedom, your impact could only grow.
But life always has other plans, and things don’t always pan out as you want them to. Burnout leads to your precious time and valuable headspace being occupied by pesky little gremlins, and that sucks.
As a result, your friends and family might even be suffering. It’s stressful. There must be a better way! After all, you know that you can put that same time and energy to better use.
You might just not know how. The good news is that I’ve been to Hell and back to find that route – and I’ve distilled it down to the essentials so you can avoid the red-hot pokers of failure!
From Side-Husting Frugality Blogger to Full-time Entrepreneur and More…
In 2016 I devised a strategy and launched a blog to share what I had discovered with the world. I never intended it to be more than that – but stuff blew up fast, and I found myself in national newspapers with my own nickname.
It was pretty cool – and way more of a friendly reception than I ever could have hoped for.
However, it doesn’t prepare you.
Fast-forward to January 2018. My wife and I were leaving our 9-5s to support the blog’s growth, full-time. It was a crazy and exciting time for us when it honestly felt like anything was possible.
As it turned out, not all those anythings that were possible were necessarily good.
Some were downright heartbreaking. I learned a lot (you like ugly details?), and now I’ve come out the other side with more experience, more knowledge, and perhaps a little more wisdom at my side.

It’s about minimizing your time investment to maximize your income.
