Living A Financially Free Lifestyle

I often hear how so many people are living from paycheck to paycheck and I understand it when they talk about wanting to be free from that entire situation. Being free from living paycheck to paycheck means doing things differently from what you have been doing this far since that isn’t making any real or lasting change.

Coupons, Sales and DiscountsCoupon

So many of us have been programmed to think in a certain fashion, We have been led to believe that if we can use enough coupons or go to enough sales and use all the discounts we can get our hands on, then we will be better off. While there is some validity to this line of thinking, it is still flawed because who is going to be able to “save” enough money to really affect a lasting change in their life?

The answer is nobody can really “change” their life by saving a few cents or dollars here or there. There is nothing wrong with shopping for the best deals and saving some money when you can, but to think that your life with dramatically alter from some coupons or sales is just nonsense.

Saving Money

Trying to save enough money to be able to effect a lasting change is equally futile. Again, don’t get me wrong, saving money is a great thing and it is wonderful to have some money in the bank when it is needed, but are you really going to save enough money from the job that pays you only enough to live on? That is why you are living from paycheck to paycheck. Am I right?

Working More To Make More Money

Here we go, let’s work another job and that will make us more free, right? WRONG, that will only serve to make you more tired and enslave you to yet another job. Working endless hours takes a toll on your body, your relationships, and your mind. There is no way to really get “ahead” by working two or three jobs, that is just another way to get older faster and way more worn out.

Doing Something Different

So, in order to get a different result, we have to do something different. Agreed? Ok, so if we can’t clip enough coupons to free us up and we can’t put enough money away in the bank to effect a lasting change in our lives, or work enough jobs, since we only have 24 hours in the day, then we have to do something else.

But, you say, what can we do? Well, I’m glad you asked because today I’m going to share with you a community of people who are doing something different and making a real and lasting change in their lives and they want to be able to help you do it as well.

Here Is Something Different

This thing that these people are doing is not illegal or immoral. It isn’t something that you have to study for years to do and it isn’t really all that hard to learn to do. You can do it, I am doing it and over 1.4 million people around the globe are doing it. What is it? You ask. Here it is, check it out for yourself for free today and see what you think. Free Starter Membership

  1. I hear you my friend. We are all on the path of financial freedom and living the lifestyle we always wanted to live. They are re so many ways to get this but the most important one is to stay positive, focus and take action. Joining Wealthy Affiliate was the best thing I could do for my financial freedom. Thanks again for such great articles. 

    1. Stay the course and reach others as much as you can, it is great to hear from other WA members and get their feedback as well. Thank you Andrea

  2. It really is difficult, if not impossible to pull one’s self out financially when you’re barely making it day to day. As you said, who can stash enough money away in a savings account when you barely have enough money  from those paychecks to do what you need to do to live. I’ve known people that work two maybe even three jobs and they are exhausted. When you’re stretched that thin and that tired you can’t really do a good job at anything and you don’t really enjoy the life that you do have. Having another option such as Wealthy Affiliate could be an answer for some people to pull themselves out of that rut.

    1. I couldn’t have asked for a better reply to my article, you have nailed it Lynne. Time is money, why not be paid better and work for yourself, and from anywhere you are instead of having to go outside your home to work. Free yourself financially and free up your time too. Thank you so much for sharing and return whenever you can. 

  3. Hey Frank-  I agree with you in that you have to work smarter and not harder.  You’ll never get rich by working for someone else.   So your advice to think outside the box is the way to go.

    The key to financial freedom is to build something that will offer you residual income.  Those passive income streams that work for YOU 24/7 are the things that will set you apart from others.

    Most who head down this fail unfortunately because they don’t have the patience or drive to stick with it and build their business for the long term.

    Thanks again for a great article….great job! 

    1. Indeed, having the foresight and the patience to keep pushing ahead for your own business and financial freedoms is a rare quality. I want so badly to be able to reach every single person, but I know that it is a percentage of the people that I reach that will have what it takes to do this. I guess that makes me sad, because I have seen first hand just how much easier it is than what most would imagine. It does take work and time, but I sold my time to others for way less and gave so much more. It only makes sense to me to be my own boss and get paid better for it. 

  4. Yes, I agree with you, financially it’s difficult for people to think outside the box. You get caught up in the 9-5 job, and as you say work even harder (if that means working two jobs) when things are not working out financially. I agree, it pays to think a little creatively. And I’m just trying those things now myself. I would love to know how it’s all worked for you, or is it working?

    1. It is absolutely working for us, our lives are so much ricer now than ever before. That statement isn’t just about money either, it is about the freedoms that come with being more financially free. I have written an article about how freedom begets freedom, in which I talk about how once you have begun to secure financial freedom, you will begin to see other freedoms coming along. 

      I encourage you, and everyone else, to look outside the box, to see what is being put right there in front of them and learn to be more free than you may have even thought was possible. Checking out Wealthy Affiliate is free, don’t even need a credit card or any other form of payment to check it out. I originally signed up for a free account myself, but quickly fell in love with the easy to follow training and the wonderful community. You have so much to lose if you don’t check it out and even more to gain. 

      Thank you so much for stopping and come back any time.

  5. Like you said, I think that there is merit in saving money and finding ways to reduce the amount of money that you have to spend. Coupons and sales are good things, but they certainly aren’t going to fix big money problems on their own. It’s true that we need to change how we view income. We are living in a digital age, so why not take advantage of that?

    People are becoming more and more dissatisfied with traditional lines of work. What you suggested is certainly a great step in the right direction, considering that online passive income doesn’t require you to clock in any hours. It’s a business that operates 24/7.

    I appreciate your post and look forward to the next one!

    1. Thank you so much Denver, you add great insight to the article I wrote, there is no good or logical reason to not take hold of the opportunity in front of us and there is no better place (that I have found) to get training than at Wealthy Affiliate. See you in the next article!

  6. That’s a very encouraging write up and i really like how you point out how the institutionalized the workforce, and how it is designed to hold one under the thumb. I think people find it hard to believe that learning to simply become a automated online sales rep sounds to good to be true. 

    Living A Financially Free Lifestyle is so possible if you commit to the right place, and Looking into the history of your recommendation, its been online since 2005. And looks to be a very credible place.

    Can I find you there when I sign up?

    Regards Rob

    1. You absolutely can Rob, and I welcome anyone looking to better themselves and their financial situation within Wealthy Affiliate. Press on towards the goal and let no one stand in your way, especially yourself. 

  7. I am one of those people that have decided to change the way I make a living. I took the plunge a couple of years ago and slowly I am seeing the benefits of the work I have put into my online business. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and it’s a very exciting prospect to know that I can actually achieve financial freedom.

    Freedom doesn’t come for nothing, not initially. But 2 to 4 hours a day working towards it, is worth the price to pay in my opinion.

    Forget working longer to get more. Financial freedom doesn’t work this way. Creating passive income is the only way, and achieving this online is a great way to get going.

    Thanks for the great article, I do go on a bit lol, but I am passionate about this subject 🙂



    1. As are we Rina, this is such an issue in our world today and that I why we are trying to reach others and inform them about how to be able to achieve financial freedom. Thank you so much and please visit us as often as you like. 

  8. Saving money definitely isn’t the way to financial freedom. I used to be one of those people who choose not to take a grocery bag because it cost $0.05, or only buy things when they’re on sale. I agree that saving money is a good thing, but not when it causes you to have this scarcity mindset. Working more is also not the way to go as it just means trading more time for money.

    This Wealthy Affiliate you mentioned trains people to build a websites? Is that a good way to achieve financial freedom? How much money can you earn by building websites?

    1. Wealthy Affiliate is the best platform that I have found, and yes, it totally teaches people to be able to build websites and create content that generates traffic. The traffic is the key, you get other people to your site and inform them about whatever it is that you are promoting, or informing and once you are able to do this, you are able to generate income and scale it to your desired goal.  

  9. Financial freedom is possible when you begin with a plan, and don’t deviate from that plan. Setting goals is important to stay on track to reaching your financial freedom. 

    Working two or three jobs is the fastest way to nowhere because there will be no strength to enjoy the fruits of your labor. Also it’s not what you make but you save, and then what you invest. 

    Great post keep it up!


    1. Thank you Shannon, and you, and you are so right. Working multiple jobs and many hours only serves to wear you out and steal any joy you might have had to begin with. Come back any time.

  10. Hi, 

    I totally agree with you that so many people(including myself) are living a live of paycheck to paycheck. It can be stressful at times because of how people feel concerned, anxious and fearful about their current financial situation, and constantly scrambling to make ends meet. 

    That’s the one reason I joined Wealthy Affiliate to do something different and to trying to find new ways of getting out the cycle of paycheck to paycheck, though I’m  just starting at Wealthy Affiliate, I have this outlook that if  done right, I can have this financial freedom that I dreamed of.


    1. Absolutely Glenda, you have hit the nail on the head. I know that there are so many people out there dealing with the exact same problems and feelings. It is for that very reason that I have put this site up and offer a pathway to this platform so they can also learn to earn their freedom and not have to be subject to the paycheck to paycheck mentality.

  11. You are on the button. So many of us work paycheck to paycheck and we never manage to get any richer.  Even though we manage to put a bit away, all to often some or other emergency comes up and sucks away at our savings again. It is like a vicious cycle. 

    The only way out of this cycle is to get your own business up and running. If you are willing to work at it over time you will be able to be financially free.  At least if you start an online business as you recommend in this article you will have virtually no start up costs as you would have if you had to start a brick and mortar business.

    1. You are so right, Michel, life happens at the least opportune times. Yes, there is very little cost in starting an online business and it usually depends directly with how much you are willing to work on it as to how successful it becomes. Thank you for your input and come back any time. 

  12. I’m an advocate of doing a lot of these things and to be honest it may be easier said than done for most people myself included. But, I’m glad you’re sort of touching on the point of passive income or “making money while you sleep” because that is something that takes a lot more work but will turn out to be more beneficial and easier in the long run. 

    1. Absolutely Ryan. All the companies I have ever worked for have made money while they weren’t working, but until this business, that was never a reality for me. Being your own boss and working for your own financial freedom is so liberating and makes me want to help others do the same thing. Thanks so much for the comments and come back as often as you like. 

  13. Thank you for this.  I’ve been going back and forth on whether to work from doing something that I love, but waiting while it works out, or going back to work, coming home tired as and not getting done what I really want to do.  You’ve answered a question for me.  And I really needed it!

    Thank you so much!

  14. I was on that path couple of years ago. Educated myself about investing (stocks, real estate) only to realise, that with a “regular job” income, it doesn’t make much of a difference. A very popular money coach said, that unless you have $200.000, you don’t even have to think about investing. On the other hand-as you pointed out- you can work your ass off and peril your health or relationship with minimal financial improvement. I realised that the only way to make significant progress is to start your own business, with unlimited financial possibilities. Affiliate marketing is for sure one way.    

    1. So right Felix, you can try to invest and/or save your way to a better and more secure financial place, but the chances are very slim that it will ever happen that way. And, yes, in the meantime you are risking your health on several levels. Building your own online business is the best way to change your financial future. Passive income VS active income, passive wins every time, hands down.

  15. Hi Frank,

    I think that we are trained as kids to follow some rules about earning money and somehow we are put in the box. Internet is a big opportunity for everyone, no matter the age and education. Wealthy Affiliate provides great support, has quality courses and it is a great way to develop your business. I’ve been using it for months now and I have to say that I’m very satisfied.

    I really love to manage my time as I want and to work from any place I want, so this is a big deal for me. It helped me a lot. I recommend WA to anyone and also I advice you to try and start your business today on the Internet, don’t waste another hour!

    Thanks for this post, I always love to remind myself on all the benefits that come with this.



    1. Thank you Strahinja, everything you said is true and I am so glad you took the time to stop by my website comment. Yes Wealthy Affiliate is the best training platform I have found, and I have looked at a few of them. The internet business is only getting more and more prominent. Let’s break out of that box mentality and forge our own financial freedom today. 

  16. The biggest take away from this is to not live above your means. We are programmed by society to need things to want things and we need them right now! Well sorry but life doesn’t work that way and if you want things in life you need to wait and prioritize what is actually important to you and your family. That’s how we live our lives in my house and others should do the same. Stop buying crap you don’t need

    1. I agree that people need to learn to not live above their means, but I also know that there are so many people who don’t have enough to meet their daily necessities and make ends meet. That is why I want to inform people about how to learn to live a more financially secure life. I have found a way to generate a passive income stream though Wealthy Affiliate. 

  17. I couldn’t agree more. Folks want financial stability and it’s so hard to achieve it, that is until you come to Wealthy Affiliate. This is the only program that I never once doubted. From beginners to experienced, anyone can do Wealthy Affiliate. You can do anything you put your mind to. All it takes is a passion for one thing in your life and you can build your website around it and become successful and eventually financially independent!

    1. There certainly isn’t another platform like Wealthy Affiliate. I personally have tried others and found a home at Wealthy Affiliate. The support and community is top notch.

  18. Thanks for this interesting and very useful article. I like your ideas for living a financially free lifestyle. I have been trying to save more money, till I found the Wealthy Affiliate, and I realized I can make more money online with affiliate marketing. So, I am glad you also wrote about WA, and let more people know and learn how to make money online.

    Thank again and keep up the good work!

    1. Thank you Sandy, so happy that you have found Wealthy Affiliate and yes, it is a great way to learn to build an online empire and generate a passive form of income .

  19. Great post and I agree.

    Many people, such as I was, were or are living from month to month and looking to the money they have and seeing it depleting, and looking for ways to get more, but sometimes running into bad sites or programs, and being disappointed because of that.

    Wealthy Affiliate is the best you can have, and I suggest that all of you join this one, you can earn good money with this!

  20. Having that financial stability and passive income is the goal for many, even though most have no clue how to achieve it. I certainly believe we all will get our desires met. This type of business is growing exponentially and so are the people using the internet. it’s almost impossible to not see success. Just make sure your goals are realistic

    1. Very good points Ty, thank you and I am hopeful that your goals are met. Thank you for the comments and the insights. It is certainly true that internet marketing is going nowhere but up, it is growing faster than it can be measured.

  21. You are so right when you say that to take on 2 or even 3 more jobs is not the way to earn your way to financial freedom.  The correct way is to find a job you can love.

    What is meant by this phrase is to follow your passion, whatever you like to do most that brings a sense of fulfillment and then share that through a website helping others as you create your very own online business!

    This in turn will in time, bring about financial freedom.

    Thank you for sharing your valuable information with us.  It is certainly an offer that is worth looking into.


    1. Edu, you are so right about your comment about doing what you are passionate about, that is what makes all the difference in the online arena. 

  22. Great, I just toured the platform, unlike other communities, it has no those many unnecessary upsells. I have joined other platforms in the past three months, which had a lot of upsells, ending up costing  thousands of dollars. Thank you so much for for a great review. I have one question though, if I can’t afford to pay the Premium features, how much does the free starter hold? I mean, can I benefit that much from the free stater, OR I will have to upgrade in order to see a reasonable progress?   

    1. I went premium pretty quickly after joining with my started membership, but I have heard many people talk about how you can still earn a living with a started membership, there is just so much more to the premium account and I encourage everyone to go premium, I actually pay by the year, which ends up being less than a dollar a day. That is value that you just can’t beat. For the level of training and the online support, live chat and the great community, it is unparalleled
