How to Have More Options with Cashflow FI
It can be a challenge to break out of the paycheck to paycheck cycle. One recent survey found that 64% of Americans are in that cycle; that's nine and half million more than 2021.
You might be thinking that it is because of income and for sure that’s a major issue, but your income is only part of the equation.
Fortune reported that over half of Americans earning $100,000 or more are living paycheck to paycheck.
Again there are various reason why people are struggling even with a healthy income and we’ll cover a few of them here in future episodes, but one big factor is they haven’t taken the time to prioritize their spending.
Whether you’re looking to pursue financial independence or something in the more traditional time frame, you have to master your cash flow.
When you have a gap between what you’re spending and earning while still enjoying life, you’re giving yourself more options and flexibility with your budget and schedule.
It’s not automatic though, it’s skill you have to learn.
That’s why I’m happy to have Cody Berman on today’s show.
In this episode, we’ll cover:
- why financial independence is more than just leaving the rat race
- diversifying your income in a way where you’re not trading your time for money
- why Cody is focused on cash flow FI vs waiting to hit a more traditional FI number
We have a lot to go over, so let’s get started!
