What saving and investing allowed me to do

Hello, Future Investors!

During a recent workshop, I shared a personal story about one of the most important things saving my money and investing it has allowed me to do. Here’s the gist of it:

When I started working at my first corporate job (at the age of 21), I realized VERY early on that I did not want to depend on an employer for the rest of my life.

I noticed how MANY of my co-workers who had been at the company for 20-30 years were very miserable. Some were just counting down to retirement, while others were getting laid off and replaced for “making too much money” or for other inexplicable reasons.

It terrified me to ever see myself in their shoes.

I wanted to “someday” have the freedom of flexibility to do any of the following:

-> Change jobs at any time (if I felt like it) without the feelings of pressure or desperation that I “needed money to pay my bills.”

-> Have the ability to take time off at some point, maybe to travel a bit, figure out my next career move, or simply pause without having to wait until the average retirement age to do so.

I soon realized that the only way I could do any of that would be to reach a level of financial freedom that would allow me to peacefully do so.

I wasn’t 100% sure what that ultimate goal would be. However, I did know that investing my money would eventually afford me the freedom I was looking for.

Once I reached 30, I found my passion and life work. I started Girl$ on The Money, and it began taking its “first steps.”

Around that time, I had finished my MBA degree and had to make a decision.

Would I continue working in the corporate setting, perhaps at an investment bank (making the rich richer), or pursue my business full time? I decided on the latter.

The MAIN factor that allowed me to do that with peace of mind was the savings and investments I had built over time. Emphasis on the investments!!

Had I not been investing the money I was saving over the years, there is no way I would have felt comfortable and free to leave that “good-paying job with great benefits.”

Investing my money allowed me the freedom to do just that and start building my business. It has been one of the best decisions of my life.

I had accomplished that goal I had set for myself in my early 20s. What an incredible feeling.

What do YOU believe saving and (most importantly) investing will allow you to do? What kind of goals or freedom are you seeking?
