Freedom Slab

When you just need a basic roof, you put in a flat slab. Similarly, when you need a passive income to 'retire', you can convert some of your wealth into a diversified income portfolio.

Growth Pillars

Just like a house needs strong pillars to hold it up, you need at least two pillars to help you grow. The first is self-learning - you need to keep learning to enhance your skills and earn better. The second is growth assets - ideally a portfolio of shares in quality businesses.

Architect Blueprint

Just like an architect needs to understand her own abilities as well as the land on which the house needs to be built, you need to understand your own abilities and temperament as well as the market environment (inflation, markets, products, intermediaries etc).

Fun Roof

You can design the roof any way you want - from traditional to whimsical - to make the house your own. Even if the roof gets destroyed, your house still stands. Similarly, you can allocate some of your wealth to your hobbies or own business, knowing that if they don't work out, you can walk away.

Essentials Foundation

Just like a house needs a strong foundation that is not visible and hence, can't be damaged, you need your own good health and an emergency fund to help you re-bounce from an adverse situation.

BUDGETING MADE EASY

A budget is basically a plan on how to spend the income you have. One way to do this to first track all your expenses for a few months and then set up a budget to trim your ‘lattes and avocado toasts’. Personally, I’ve never liked the idea to focus on such details. Let me
