37 Motivational Financial Freedom Quotes

Financial freedom is a term that gets tossed around quite a bit in the personal finance space.

It can mean different things to different people. High income earners many times feel that becoming financially free is not possible as their income is too high to replace.

The two main definitions are:

  1. Getting to the point where passive income replaces your active income.
  2. Getting to the point where passive income replaces your personal expenses.

Either one will work but we focus on #2.
