Paula Pant Presents:
Three Rebellious Roads to Financial Independence
The “traditional” road to financial independence -- (is there such a thing?!) -- involves the tried-and-true strategy of spending less than you earn, investing the difference into index funds, and waiting for a decade for the results to blossom.
While that’s a surefire method, it’s not the only path.
During this two-hour presentation (well, really it’s a “conversation”), we’ll discuss three unconventional ways to reach financial independence, including:
Shopping spree! -- No, not that kind of shopping spree. Buy a handful of rental properties, renovate until they’re sparkling, hire a property manager, and live on the proceeds. If the market timing is right, this could lead you to financial independence within 365 days or less.
Destination Awaits! -- Gather a handful of rental properties, turn these into vacation destinations, work part-time as a manager until they’re paid-in-full, convert these into long-term-lease dwellings, and live on the proceeds.
Everyday I’m Hustling -- No desire to leap into the real estate game? Don’t worry, it’s not the only path. We’ll walk through Introductory Hustling, where we’ll demonstrate how just an extra 10 hours per week can turbocharge your path to your personal Independence Day.
About Paula Pant:
Paula Pant is a journalist. Globetrotter. Entrepreneur. Investor.
She has traveled to 32 countries. She owns seven rental property units. She's her own boss and lives on her own terms.
She believes money can fuel your wildest dreams and she started Afford Anything to teach people how to harness money to buy back their life. Her revolution believes that life is too short to sit in a cubicle. Master your money, so you can ditch the 9-to-5 and embark on an epic adventure.
How do you do that? By cutting ruthlessly on things that don’t matter so
that you can spend lavishly on the things matter most.
Paula's has worked as newspaper editor and reporter, where she interviewed influential leaders like Joe Biden, followed murder investigations and appeared live on Primetime MSNBC. It was exhilarating work, but it wasn’t enough. Something was missing. She was STUCK. She had to live in one spot. She couldn't travel and when she wanted a vacation she had to submit a formal request to HR.
That’s no way to live.
In 2008 she quit her job and sold all her worldly possessions. For the next two-and-a-half years, she backpacked across the Middle East, Asia, and Europe.
During that time, her friends kept saying: “I’d love to do that, but I can’t afford it.”
She cringed when she heard that. It’s simply not true.
Her website is based on one radical idea: You can afford anything.
You can’t afford everything. But you can afford anything — trips to Rome, buying your dream home, quitting your job to launch your own business.
If you’re open to this idea, learn how to shatter limits and maximize your life.
Paula is able to make enough money to support herself entirely through passive income from rental properties.
She will share how to do this and more!
Here are the Seven Afford Anything Tenets:
1. Pave your own path.
2. Ruthlessly prioritize.
3. Focus on creation, not consumption.
4. Cultivate an owner mentality.
5. Use your money to make money.
6. Pay yourself.
7. Time is more valuable than money.
