My vision of Financial Independence

In my opinion there are many different visions of the concept of “financial independece”. You will find many blogs that talk about becoming millionaires in a few years others who will give you tips on how to save and live with little money. In my opinion both these visions are not correct.
Becoming millionaires in a few years is very unlikely, there are no magic recipes.
We live only once. the object of “financial independece” is to improve the quality of life. Today, compared to yesterday we have available new tools such as Peer to peer lending and crypto currencies that can help us integrate with classical instruments (bonds and shares). In the next posts I will tell you my experience

Financial independence: thinking to quit the rat race

Financial independence mean that you have a passive income (from a porfolio of stocks, bonds or other resources) and you can live without working, or if you prefer you can exit the “rat race”. What does it mean? According to Cambridge dictionarya way of life in modern society, in which people compete with each other for powerand money” This doesn’t mean you have to stop working at all. Probably you like your work in some ways but you don’t like your boss or some way or working or more simply you need more spare time to enjoy your life and do almost what you like. So financial independence doesn’t mean to watch tv all day long,  but get a new vison of work where you do the work you like simply because you like it. Enzo Biagi  one of the most important Italian  journalist  said “I would have been a free journalist too: thank goodness my publishers have never noticed it”. Yes if you are financial independet you can work for free.
