183 Financial Independence Part 3: Buy Status Symbols or Buy Your Freedom

This episode is about the main barrier to financial independence: consuming for status instead of investing for wealth. You have a choice: you can either buy status symbols or your can buy financial freedom, but not both. Topics covered in the episode include:

  • Why everything you think about "the rich" is probably wrong
  • How most high income people blow their chance at financial independence
  • How you can buy financial freedom instead of getting caught in the culture of capital consumption
