September 2017 Flexible and Passive Income Update: $213.81

At the beginning of 2019, I will quit my job as a cybersecurity operations director.

Want to get caught up? Go check out my first post of this series.

I’m not financially independent, and I won’t be retiring early, at least not for a while, even with a healthy net worth. Call me spoiled, but I can’t stand the traditional work routine. I’m going to escape it through the use of multiple income streams, some passive, some flexible.

If you’re confused, seriously, I explain everything in my first post.

To be better prepared for leaving traditional work, I’m tracking our progress through this series. Enjoy and make sure you subscribe to get updates on our journey!

It’s time to review that number that never seems to go quite high enough, but it sure is fun to watch it climb, isn’t it?

I hope you find something useful in my report, whether you are looking for new ways to build your own wealth, or just looking for some inspiration while paying off your debt.

I did the latter many times while I was on my debt payoff journey. For me, it was extremely encouraging to see someone else’s success (with a similar mindset/approach), and to think and dream about how I might have success as well.

With that, please take a look and make sure to follow the instructions to check if you are impacted and to sign up for identity theft protection.

If you have a debt payoff story you’d like to tell, awesome! Please shoot me an email at comment@debtfreegeek.org
