Hey there & welcome to The New Rich Life.
This isn’t just another money or personal finance blog.
This is a blog about empowering you with ideas, tools and tips on how to create your New Rich life.
So, what is a New Rich life?
And the only correct answer to that question is: whatever you want it to be.
It’s not only about how much money you want to make, but it’s about building the lifestyle that that amount of money can give you.
Cause you don’t want $1 million dollars just sitting in your bank account. You want the options and freedoms that kind of money can give you.
Quoting from one of my favorite books, The 4-Hour Workweek:
“The New Rich (NR) are those who abandon the deferred-life plan and create luxury lifestyles in the present using the currency of the New Rich: time and mobility.”
Luxury: however you define luxury
Deferred-life plan: Slaving away at a 9-to-5 for your most vital years, only to start living the kind of luxury lifestyle you want once you’ve retired.
To me, luxury is a life where I get to be a stay-at-home husband & father. I can write my screenplays and tell my stories. I help other people make meaningful changes & improvements to their lives. I can go on long off-the-grid vacations surrounded by nature. I have a big house where I can record music, read books, and be a good host to friends and family.
All while most of my income is automated & I know that my assets are growing quarter-over-quarter.
(Btw, if it’s not clear yet: I’m an introvert)
That kind of lifestyle doesn’t require me to focus on chasing big 7-figure numbers to acquire.
But, that luxury lifestyle is specific to my needs, wants, and desires.
What does your luxury lifestyle look like?
Write it down somewhere. (& let me know in the comments or drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org)
The Game of Money
Once you’ve gotten some clarity on what your luxury lifestyle looks like, and you want to start living it sooner rather than later, it’s time to come to grips with a reality.
It takes money.
You may not be in the financial situation you need to be in in order to live that New Rich life, which is where I hope to be able to help you in my content.
I suggest by starting to read these posts:
Then, if you haven’t already signed up for it, there’s a free 1-hour long video course on How to Achieve Financial Peace in 2021 & Beyond.
Because, let’s be honest:
You don’t necessarily want to be financially independent. You want to stop worrying about your financial situation.
And that’s it for now!
