So you want to:
Get your finances under control,
Pay off all of your debts,
And eventually reach financial independence.
With a to-do list like that, where the heck do you start?
Don’t worry! I’ve got you covered!
The Level Up Roadmap to Financial Independence!
Whether you’re at the very beginning of your personal finance journey or making decisions that will lead you to financial independence, the Level Up Roadmap to Financial Independence can help!
Start at the top with your “why?”
Why do you want to get your finances under control?
Why do you want to pay down your debts?
Why do you want to start investing?
Why do you want to reach financial independence?
Write it down in the box!
You are 42% more likely to achieve your goals if you write them down, and keeping a reminder of your “why” visible will help you stick to progres!
What Level Am I In?
Start from the left and find out!
If you know your net worth, your credit score, and the details of your debt, you’ve passed Assess (Level 1) .
Then keep moving left as you accomplish new goals!
What If I Have Checkboxes in Multiple Levels?
Maybe you’re in Stability (Level 3) with your 3-6 month emergency fund, but you’re in Take Control (stage 2) making minimum payments on your debt.
Your Roadmap to Financial Independence might not be a perfect straight line- and that’s okay!
This is merely a guide to help you find your next step to Level Up your finances.
If you’re further ahead in one area than another, take the time to go back and review the previous boxes that aren’t checked.
Then focus on taking the steps to check that box and move to the next Level.
Remember: You’ve Got This!
No matter where you are on the roadmap, you’re taking one step forward just by downloading it and filling it in!
Keep it somewhere you can see it, and let it motivate you to keep working towards your next Level Up!
