Tips for using passive income to maintain financial independence

Many think that the goal in life is lots of money, but the goal should be the freedom it gives. Financial independence equals freedom. There is no other goal than the freedom money will bring.

Effort is the key and will always be key. A lot of effort up front to bring the back end freedom. Most people view obstacles in a purely negative way, when in fact obstacles make us stronger and more prepared. When we have barriers and challenges in our path, we are given the opportunity for growth.
