Hi I’m James, and welcome to Next Level FI!
I grew up in the 80s, and have always been thrifty. I saved one coin at a time to purchase my first video game system, and my programming teacher just happened to be a finance teacher that had words of wisdom to live by:
“the harder you work now, the less you’ll have to work for the rest of your life.”
I still made some dumb mistakes financially, but after focusing on educating myself on money I found that I was at a milestone – I could stop working and live on the bare necessities if I chose to.
Obviously with a family we’d like to enjoy some of the finer things, but having the option/freedom gave me even more drive that there is a better way than how most live (broke). I have reached the point where I know I can do better as a father.
This site shares what I teach my kids while we master money together. Our ultimate goal is have all the tools we need to create their own businesses and design a life where work is optional (see DigitalBeyond.com for ways to win with business technology).
Feel free to check us out on Social Media below, as well as other sites that are under development.
Remember to think big and share the wealth. Cheers 🙂
