Shopping trip? Yes. Manicures? No doubt. New car? Of course!
Though I was living the good life – rocking my married life, raising an awesome kid, and working at a good job – Amy and her husband Andrew were tired. And, as it turns out they found themselves in quite the financial mess. With car loans, credit card debt, bank loans, student loans — they had no choice but to keep working to afford the life they were living.
Life is hard with debt! And we were trapped.
There’s never enough time or energy at the end of the day, and never enough money at the end of the month.
But there is hope.
Amy and Andrew knew there was a better life waiting for them – they just had to find it! Living a time-starved life, working full-time and still struggling to make ends meet was taking its toll.
And they were tired of it. So this couple got serious about building a life of financial freedom.
Along the way, Amy and Andrew were introduced to the idea of Financial Independence Retire Early (or FIRE for short). Is it possible? Could they really live life on their own terms?
They decided to find out. Driven by the idea of unlimited vacation time — time to travel, to spend with family and engage in their passions — the couple designed what their perfect life would look like.
Since Amy was bored at her 9 to 5 job, she immediately started side-hustling to bring joy back into her life. In just 9 months, she grew it into a full-time freelance writing business.
Now, they’re changing their priorities and controlling their spending to become financially free and live the life of their dreams.
You can escape the stress of money and build a life you love without sacrificing your sanity.
And that’s why we created Early Morning Money: to help you wake up your finances, control your spending, make more money, and build a better life.
