Thanks for visiting us here at Freedom 101. We’re super pumped you’re here. If you’re anything like us, you are looking for ways to exit the rat race, and reach Financial Freedom.
You’ve come to the right place.
Our goals weren’t about having lots of money – or not having to work, we just wanted to create the financial means to have true choice over our lives. Having control over the only currency we would never be able to generate more of. TIME.
As two government workers on regular salaries, with one kid (and later two) we started by eliminating our debt. We worked hard, pushed ourselves to come up with creative ways to increase our income streams and lived below our means (without giving up coffee, sushi, or the other things that brought the highest ROI into our lives).
One day we realized what we were doing was really working.
Not only were we going to eliminate all our debt; but we had generated sufficient and diversified income streams to achieve Financial Freedom, AND allow us to truly consider early retirement.
At 33 & 34 years old.
Now we live a pretty dope life. We hang with our kiddo’s, pursue interesting side hustles, and generally – do what we want. We highly recommend it.
We love challenges and learning new things, so there is no doubt that our “working” days are far from over. But now it’s about investing our time in things we feel passionate about and obtain value from. Not just financial value, but things that give us a sense of purpose, and satisfaction.

Hopefully what we share here will help you exit the rat race, and shape your individual plan to obtain your own version of Financial Freedom. To invest your time in the things that matter to you, whatever they may be.
