Wealth is Freedom with Maurice Philogene
In This Episode:
All we’re taught growing up is to sit at a desk and look forward and move through each next stage of our lives. Become valedictorian, prom king, executive vice-president, then CEO, and become wealthy. Many people believe they need millions of dollars in the bank to be wealthy, but being wealthy is not about money, it’s about freedom. Being a CEO is one man’s definition of success, but living a life of freedom is another, and that’s exactly how this week’s guest chooses to live his life.
Maurice Philogene is a real estate investor working with apartment complexes in the U.S. but developing land in the Mediterranean. In his early 20s, he knew he wasn’t destined to sit behind a desk for the rest of his life. He picked up Personal Finance for Dummies, where he read a passage about passive income, and it resonated. He began buying condos and single-family homes, and by 2014, he was generating more money through this passive revenue than in his job. But life isn’t just about money; true wealth is about freedom. He is now living a freedom lifestyle and is an example of how to make progress, be financially free, happy, and feel alive in life.
When your passive revenue exceeds your ideal standard of living, you are successful. You are financially free. Anybody can live a freedom lifestyle and Maurice joins Jim on the podcast this week to share what he thinks holds people back from being financially free. Maurice shares his journey in real estate and how he was able to break away from the traditional ways of earning, stop exchanging his time for money, and start to become financially free. Get ready to learn how you can do the same.
