These are my tips on being financially independent.
Minimize your expenses - Differentiate and prioritize your 'wants' and 'needs' (do you really need that avocado toast?)
Maximize your income streams - Try to start a side hustle (build a blog, invest your money, sell stuff on Etsy etc)
Invest your time and money in yourself - learn a new skill.
Be Patient, Amazon took years to get where it is today.
Deliver a great product - Be the best you can be, be sympathetic, be empathetic. Kindness is undervalued. Maximize your potential
