The journey to financial freedom is a long one, likely to span years if not decades. To help breakup this journey into bite sized chunks, it is useful to understand what are the checkpoints along this journey. To help with this, I have created an interactive example here.
I have always been interested in investing and generating a passive income. From the day I started to earn a salary, I was trying to learn as much as I could on the various avenues to invest my money safely. In 2012, I had hit the first checkpoint and I tried retiring, which was a big mistake. My wealth stagnated and so did my passive income stream. To accelerate my path to the final check point, I studied even more ways of growing my money passively and with the information I gathered, I was able to increase my rate of return on wealth to the point where I had hit the final checkpoint by end of 2017.
I am sure many others can do the same, but starting early and education in investments is key. Hopefully I can help with the latter, stay tuned!
