What Does True Financial Freedom Look Like?

Ah, financial freedom!

The golden dream of the modern jobholder, and an untold number of online marketers and aspiring bloggers.

And for good reason. Who wouldn’t love to have the ability to do what you want, when and where you want, with whom you want – all without worrying about money?

Often romantic images of travel and adventure go hand in hand with the financial freedom ideal, but it is by no means limited to people who have quit their day job to make a “passive” living online.
