When it comes to your finances, too many people are enslaved by the bondage of their financial situation. For the most part, this looks like insane debt levels. We need to flip this situation on its head and turn our financial situations into opportunity breeding entities rather than enslaving entities.

So, what do you dream of in your life and your family's life? Do you want a different way to live? Do you want independence? Do you want to rely more on yourself rather than the government or an employer? There are real, tangible steps that you can take in order to get here.
