"This book blew my mind. More importantly, it made financial independence seem achievable. I read Financial Freedom three times, cover-to-cover." (Lifehacker)
Money is unlimited. Time is not. Become financially independent as fast as possible.
In 2010, 24-year-old Grant Sabatier woke up to find he had $2.26 in his bank account. Five years later, he had a net worth of over $1.25 million, and CNBC began calling him "the Millennial Millionaire". By age 30, he had reached financial independence. Along the way, he uncovered that most of the accepted wisdom about money, work, and retirement is either incorrect, incomplete, or so old-school it's obsolete.
Financial Freedom is a step-by-step path to make more money in less time, so you have more time for the things you love. It challenges the accepted narrative of spending decades working a traditional nine-to-five job, pinching pennies, and finally earning the right to retirement at age 65, and instead offers listeners an alternative: Forget everything you've ever learned about money so you can actually live the life you want.
Sabatier offers surprising, counterintuitive advice on topics such as how to:
- Create profitable side hustles that you can turn into passive-income streams or full-time businesses
- Save money without giving up what makes you happy
- Negotiate more out of your employer than you thought possible
- Travel the world for less
- Live for free - or better yet, make money on your living situation
- Create a simple, moneymaking portfolio that only needs minor adjustments
- Think creatively - there are so many ways to make money, but we don't see them.
But most importantly, Sabatier highlights that while one's ability to make money is limitless, one's time is not. There's also a limit to how much you can save, but not to how much money you can make. No one should spend precious years working at a job they dislike or worrying about how to make ends meet. Perhaps the biggest surprise: You need less money to "retire" at age 30 than you do at age 65.
Financial Freedom is not merely a laundry list of advice to follow to get rich quick - it's a practical road map to living life on one's own terms, as soon as possible.
"Financial Freedom is about a lot more than money, it’s about living a richer life." (David Bach, number-one New York Times best-selling author of The Automatic Millionaire and The Latte Factor)
"Grant's genius is on full display in the entrepreneurial attitudes and strategies in this practical, fiercely focused book. Financial Freedom fills a major gap in Your Money or Your Life that I didn't even realize was there. Thank you!" (From the foreword by Vicki Robin, New York Times best-selling coauthor of Your Money or Your Life)
"Simply put, this book will help you make money. You'll also learn to save, invest, and better manage your money - all good things! I hope you have the foresight to read and apply its many lessons." (Chris Guillebeau, New York Times best-selling author of Side Hustle and The $100 Startup)

great tips to get you thinking
A lot of tax advise. Very stock/bonds focussed. Working/sidehustling as a basis to invest as fast and as much as you can. Based on the existing American system. Focussed on methods for younger people by compounding methods.
Allthough very interesting tips, implementations and ways to live to achieve financial independance faster.
Good. Probably best for US citizens.
There are many good deeds in this book for the FI community, but it strongly focuses on american citizens.
You have to be doing pretty well already to be able to follow his advise fruitfully, in many cases. He talks about saving 100/150K a year.. gotta make that type of money first.
Real life is a bit more complicated, but the concept is good and if you follow what you can, you’ll be only helping yourself to enjoy retirement to the fullest, even if you might retire at 60!

Thank you, very inspiring
It appears to me that the author is Not only a conosseur of the mechanics of money and compounding, but also of the human soul? There are certain Passages where the author Shows a high degree of wisdom and also an of psychological understanding of what happens when we couble our identity with the soecific paid labour wePassages of honest selfreflection of the author - like the mistakes he made, and also that financial freedom is worth gaining, but that life takes place at the moment.
The chapter on side jobs i consider as very helpful.
Thanks, this book brought clarity in my life.
