Would you agree that there are blogs for almost everything? Blogs on how to cook, how to lose weight, how to bake cookies, how to write blogs and the list goes on.
So why another blog? Well, this blog is a chronicle of my journey to success…financial success that is. It will show you what I have learned, what I need to learn, and how I implement what I learn. You will see my ups and downs.
Most of the how-to blogs that I have read on financial success are written by people who are already financially independent. This one is not your average blog…it’s different because I am not there yet…but I will be and you can too.
I’m sure you are now asking, “So, what does this do for me?” Am I right? Well, I hope to encourage you to take a journey of your own or encourage you to continue on the one you have started. Perhaps my successes as well as my struggles will be just what you need to get started or to continue. Weight loss blogs have done this so why can’t a financial success blog do the same?
My journey started years ago and this blog will cover some of the things I have been doing all these years as well as what I am doing now. I have been chasing after financial independence for as long as I can remember. But now I feel like I am moving in the right direction.
I am 68 years old. I have had several successful careers… working for someone else. My goal, even while I was working a JOB, was to be financially independent. And I really believe that working for someone else was not and is not the way for me to become financially independent.
I tried more than once to seek financial independence but somehow fell short each time (more on that later). I didn’t give up though; I just changed the vehicle so to speak. And, I never stopped learning. What I learned has led me to this point.
This blog then will serve to keep me accountable and perhaps you can learn from my mistakes. I want this blog to reinforce the fact that success is indeed a journey and one worth taking.
