Paul believes the mark of financial success isn’t about big numbers or acquiring more – it’s about freedom. The freedom to spend more time with your family, to give back to your community, or just more time to follow your passion (in Paul’s case, surfing). We all have our own idea of what freedom is, but actually achieving it is another thing. This book shows you how.
