Green is Good Cents is a personal finance blog.
In today’s world we are constantly bombarded with information and choices. Having the ability to choose is a gift but, with every decision there is an opportunity cost.
Will you buy those Christian Louboutin shoes you have ALWAYS wanted or will you take your family on vacation?
Will you go on vacation with your family or pay off your debt?
Every choice has consequences that set us up for financial well-being or financial hardship.
Financial independence is having the ability to choose what you do with your time irrespective of your job.
Michael Kitces says it best:
I’m going to accumulate enough money to get to the point where what I decide to do with my time is no longer dependent on money
