How to be Financially Independent

Updated on August 29, 2011

Financial independence is when you are able to fulfill your basic needs for living without depending on your family and relatives. But meaning for financial independence varies from person to person.

By not depending on your family, you have become independent in one way, but there could be a Boss on you, and it simply indicates you are still dependent financially on someone or on the company/organization with whom you work and associated with. So unless you are capable of fulfilling your requirements on your own without depending on one company, you are not completely independent. But whatever you do, you will always be dependent on something, like here on HubPages, who wants to earn rewards from 'Adsense' and 'affiliate marketing', they are dependent on the traffic and clicks. But it does not mean, you are not independent, you are working on your own and you do not have to depend on one person or organization to provide you livelihood.You are writing for HubPages and you can also write for some other websites and blogs. You can also try to publish your own book, there are lots of other ways that you will come across when you plan to become self-employed.

In today's world, everyone wants to be financially independent, even a child of age 12-15 years wants to become financially independent. No one wants to ask money for some personal requirements even from the parents. So, to be financially independent, first you do not have to depend on your family and friends, then you may plan to become a free-lancer or to start your own company to get your livelihood and to provide others a chance to get their livelihood and become financially independent eventually.

      Hi,

      Yes, I feel people should at least be able to pay for themselves and yes most people I meet, friends, family acquaintances all would like to be financially independent. That's why I write online because I know eventually some day I will become financially independent.
