Let’s celebrate Liberation
I love this week because USA Independence Day has become a very special day for me even thought I’m not American.
The US version of the day celebrates the Declaration of Independence, adopted on 4 July, 1776 when the Thirteen Colonies of America declared themselves to be states and no longer part of the British Empire.
My love of this day is because with all the fireworks and social media posts I get reminded of a far more personal and recent Declaration of Independence.
10 years ago, on Saturday 8 July, 2006, whilst doing my monthly money date and updating my balance sheet I realized I had done it!
I had achieved my own Financial Independence and declared myself no longer part of the “Work For Money World”!
From that day on I was able to choose whether I wanted to work actively for money or not. If I chose not to work I could still live the lifestyle I wanted with all the travel and adventure forever.
It’s hard to explain just how liberating and exhilarating that day was and coming just a few days after USA’s Independence Day felt very fitting.
That was also the day I realized my dream of help others achieve this too could be more than just a dream and the seed of The Wealth Chef was planted and started to grow.
It’s amazing what achieving financial freedom does for our belief in ourselves.
In any case, for my freedom anniversary this year and to celebrate Independence Day I thought I would try to do something a little different, and let some of my amazing Financial Freedom University clients do the talking.
Here’s 18 videos where people just like you and me share their inspirational money journeys. I hope their stories inspire you to keep believing in your dreams and to keep taking those actions to create your own financial freedom.
AND I NEED YOUR HELP!

Now I would love if you can help me out… We all know that a typical client doesn’t just jump onto skype and say great stuff about us. These are actually the short list of Financial Freedom University Clients who shot videos about their journey so far and posted it to YouTube as part of my FFU video contest. Each then had a 1-2-1 interview with me and shared their story.
I now need to choose the top four inspirational money transformation stories. I’m going to have three winners, and the Grand Prize winner. The overall Grand Prize winner will get to attend Financially Free You live in London or Cape Town with their partner as my VIP guest including accommodation AND a free 1-on-1 wealthy strategy session with me (plus other prizes.)
I would love if you could help me narrow it down to the top videos…
…please leave a comment below and tell me which were your four favorite videos…
Thank you and a huge Independence Day and Financially Free hug to you
