Journey To Financial Independence

I started this series to reflect on our goals and share some things I learned each month. For now, I’ll primarily be tracking our progress to financial independence.

I hope you get some value from this and if you haven’t already, join the Flexcents community as it continues to grow!

OUR PROGRESS TO FINANCIAL INDEPENDENCE (FI)

As of the end of 2019, we’re nearly one-their of the way from our FI number ($ we need to retire).

The stock market has been wavering up here at the top for a little bit making me wonder if things are slowing down economically. We’ll still be enjoying the air up here while it lasts though.

32.55 %

To Financial Independence

I have been thinking about reducing my hours at work to have more time to spend on my side-hustles and other business opportunities. Right now I recognize that I will probably have to take a step back so I can begin taking a step in the right direction, but I have a tough time making that leap.

While I contemplate what I’m going to do, feel free to check out the upward trajectory of our progress below.
