Welcome to your first steps to financial freedom!
My name is Marco Carreira and I’m a personal finance coach. I’m specialized in helping people get out of debt and reach financial freedom.
What is financial freedom?
There are many financial freedom definitions out there. The problem is that everyone has their own, and a lot of them contradict each other.
For example, here are two popular financial freedom definitions. It means you can buy everything you want (#1). It means you don’t owe any money (#2).
In my opinion, being rich (#1) or being debt-free (#2) doesn’t necessarily mean being financially free.
So what is financial freedom? In my opinion, it means doing the activities you love whenever you want, without relying on an income to pay for your living expenses.
How to reach financial freedom?
Who doesn’t want to live their life without having to work to pay for their expenses? I never met someone who answered, “me” to this question.
However, only a small fraction of people will reach financial freedom. Why? Because of their spending habits and their lack of financial planning.
There are no secrets to reach financial freedom. It takes time, discipline, and control over your money.
What are the steps to financial freedom?
The first steps to financial freedom are not easy to take, but once you have a clear plan, you just need to start. Here are the steps to financial freedom.

Personal Finance Coach vs. Financial Advisor
I am a personal finance coach and not a financial advisor. It’s important to understand the main differences between the two professions to avoid any misunderstands.
What Is A Financial Advisor?
Financial advisors’ focus is to invest and grow your capital. Generally, they make financial decisions for you.
Most of them charge asset-based fees and have a minimum assets requirement. So before going with a financial advisor, you need to make sure that they have your best interest in mind.
What Is A Personal Finance Coach?
Personal finance coaches’ focus is to share their knowledge, help you achieve your goals, and teach you how to make better financial decisions.
They charge a flat fee per session and do not have a minimum assets requirement. They have your best interest in mind at any point in time.
