Hi I am Andrew, your personal advisor on how to create assets and limit liabilities.
I recently started a independent contracting company. I have had to learn the nuances of the tax code as it applies to independent contractors through discussions with a CPA and financial advisor. While not working on my jobs I have spent my free time investigated in creation of financial assets, investments, setting allocations, and reading about wealthy individuals. It is an ongoing learning process, one that requires lifelong learning.
I do not have training as a CPA or financial advisor, just a desire to learn about investment opportunities, and to decrease my financial liabilities while increasing my assets. I advise you to seek final tax advice from your CPA.
I want to be financially independent and get out of the rat race…
I know that there are people who have been successful with investments and also making money online. I desired to learn how people are accomplishing this.
My Journey thus far…
I have always been taught by my father that knowledge is power and to work hard, get involved, and do the right thing. I like most people was brought up with the understanding that to get a good job one must go to college. Even then that might not be enough and higher education is required to excel. I followed these steps, I went to college for 4 years, went on to higher education for 4 years and then went onto more specialized training for another 3 years.
While I was fortunate enough to have a generous family that saved for my college expenses. I also had scholarships and was help by my choice to attend top rated state school with lower tuition costs. I walked away debt free after college. This however, changed once I went to higher education.
A lot of people who seek higher education come out with hundreds of thousand dollars in debt. I am not an outlier. Not to mention that Fedloans have intrest rates at the time of 6.8% or greater.
I went onto 3 years of further training for my profession. While making a decent salary it was nowhere near enough to live and pay off my enormous loan.
After school and training…
After finishing training and school I entered the workforce as an independent contractor around the age of 29 years old with hundreds of thousand dollars in debt and tens of thousands of interest accumulation on my loans. I now make an income where I am able to pay my loans and to look for ways to increase my financial assets.
While I enjoy my job as an independent contractor there is still a reliance on others for stability of income. I rely on the entities I serve to stay in business and to retain my contract.
Like with investments you want to diversify, I also want to diversify my sources of income. I have recently started creating an online business through the training of Wealthy Affiliate. You can too! Please read my get started page for more information.
I encourage you to diversify your income sources and investments. To get out of the rat race and to seek financial stability in you life.
