Want to learn how to reach financial independence, so you can sit by the beach and do whatever you want? Well, it's not exactly easy but it is absolutely possible. I chat with Pauline Paquin, blogger at Reach Financial Independence, to discuss how she was able to leave the 9 to 5 world, work remotely in Guatemala, and live a life most of us could only dream of.
Ever dreamed quitting your 9 to 5 and working remotely from your laptop in paradise? Sounds like a dream, but it can actually become your reality...if you follow in Pauline Paquin's footsteps.
Pauline has figured out the secret sauce to living a financially independent life, like so many of us fantasize about on a day-to-day basis. But it wasn't just luck, and no she didn't win the lottery.
She started out by graduating university debt-free and investing her savings into a rental property. The income from the rental helped pay for her to travel abroad, but she knew she needed do something extra to not always live on a shoestring budget. So, she started freelance writing and eventually started her own blog — Reach Financial Independence.
Since then, she's also started another blog called Make Money Your Way, and has bought two other money-making blogs — Frugaling and Savvy Scot.
Pauline also shares one of her big inspirations and motivators in her life — Ramit Sethi from I Will Teach You to Be Rich. One of the biggest lessons she's learned from Ramit's teachings is that you should adopt an abundance money mindset instead of a scarcity mindset. This essentially means stopping the thinking of "I can't afford that" and changing it to "How can I afford that? What do I need to do in my life to reach that goal."
Having the right mindset when it comes to money is a big key to reaching your goals, no matter what they are, and I'll admit I absolutely have the same money mindset when it comes to my life.
