A minha história a caminho da liberdade financeira…

csmboto picture

Sou o Carlos, um doutorado com 33 anos, e fundador de uma startup. I live in Portugal with my wife. I always had the mental drive to save money, but never with financial independence in mind. Only at the beginning of 2018, I decided to structure my efforts towards freedom. This blog tells you all about my path, decisions, and mistakes.

I face strong limitations regarding my financial freedom, however, I don’t have any doubt that I will be able to achieve this personal goal of becoming financially free. Anyone can reach financial independence. It’s all about the way you wish to live and the costs necessary to sustain such a living standard.

I learn to save money with my Father. He was a hardworking and honorable man, entirely committed to supporting his family. I saw his effort to support my studies and his energy to provide me the opportunity to fly high without financial concerns. My Father is my hero.

There are many different ways to achieve financial independence, but you always will need to follow these:

  1. Keep a simple lifestyle.
  2. Maximize your income streams.
  3. Save and invest wisely.

My passive income objectives

Step 1 – Achieve a 2.000€ per month (this is close to my current day job income);

Step 2 – Achieve a 5.000€ per month (at this level I will be financially free in a comfortable way);

Step 3 – Achieve a 10.000€ per month (goal).
