The following post is a guest contribution from Early Financial Freedom.
Giving the state of the economy, can you really achieve early financial independence? Is it a mirage that you can only imagine? My wife and I would like to assure you that it is real and attainable if you are serious about it. The bottom line is that you need to desire financial freedom in order to achieve it. The desire is the driving force for making early scarifies for later pleasures.
How We Got There:
Let me introduce myself. I am an engineer from New York and am happily married with a wonderful 7-year-old son. After working 10+ years as a hands-on engineer and later as a supervisor, I resigned in April 2012 to stop working for others and join forces with my wife (who is also an engineer). Together, we run our IT/Web consulting company full-time where I have been working part-time since 2003. Our business is home-based and it does not require us being psychically in New York or anywhere in particular as long as there is an Internet connection.
