•What does financial independence mean? Is it about having millions or simply being able to have a holiday without worrying about how to pay for it?

  • Being able to pay our bills, take vacations, walk into a car dealership and purchase a vehicle right then and there, having college funds for the kids, savings for everyone in the family, there is so much more!

  • My definition is that once your out of debt you are free.

  • Its not about the amount of money you do or don't have. Is all about not owing anyone. Being FREE and independent from debt.

  • financial independence means that you're not having to borrow money to pay your bills ...and still have some left to enjoy life once the bills are paid

  • I think it means that you are able to care for yourself. you are independent of anyone else and any other money. You can be independent with your spouse as a team, as it should be.
