Journey to Financial Freedom | Jamila Souffrant | Ep 466

In this episode: finding a sustainable path to FI, adjusting your lifestyle, guac levels, mindset, and finding what you want.

Jamila Souffrant makes her long-awaited return to the podcast to discuss building a sustainable path to FI, the importance of readjusting, financial freedom versus financial independence, as well as other topics detailed in her new book “Your Journey to Financial Freedom: A Step-by-Step Guide to Achieving Wealth and Happiness.” While you may begin your FI journey with a set plan in mind, that doesn’t mean the actions you take along the trail of your journey won’t serve you at different stages. On this journey, you should never feel like you are depriving or overindulging, but instead, find a balance that works for you and brings you happiness in the present. Remember, reaching your FI goal should never be at the cost of your happiness, and while making necessary changes is part of FI, you shouldn’t be sacrificing your happiness to reach your goal quicker.  Being mindful and willing to change your plans just as life can change will bring you more freedom and allow you to make the necessary mindset changes that will serve you in ways well beyond your financial journey!
