Here at The Escape Artist we’re talking about how to achieve freedom and happiness.
There are different routes to these destinations. I’ve written about holding down a stressful job and investing your way to financial independence because that’s what I did.

You could do those things right now. You don’t need to wait to have >25x your annual spending. But all these things are WAY easier when you have a financial safety net. So getting your financial shit together and your money working for you are essential.
I helped one of my coaching clients to do just that and he has now quit his full time job and is successfully working self-employed. He kindly agreed to share his story. Enjoy!
