“At the end of the day, what's the point of having money? It's to live a better life.” @financialsamura

Ever wondered what it really takes to become a millionaire?

To quit your job and retire at 40?

…and STILL have financial security for your family so you never have to worry about money again?

If you’re thinking, “Yeah, sure Marie, who doesn’t daydream? But I’m too ______ [old, in debt, unskilled, bad with money, etc.] to ever make that happen.” Let’s stop that thought train in its tracks.

These financial “pipe dreams” are more achievable than you might think. And Sam Dogen, author of Buy This, Not That and popularly known as the Financial Samurai, is on MarieTV today to share the money strategies that’ll get you there.

Sam had his financial wake-up call while working 70+ hour weeks for a $40k salary — in Manhattan. He shared a tiny studio apartment and promptly developed TMJ from stress. Within a month, Sam knew, “There's no way I can last decades in this career.”

He had to find a way to financial freedom. And he did. More importantly, YOU can too.

Sam used what he learned about money to save aggressively, invest wisely, and effectively retire at 34 years old. Three years later, he retired his wife. Today he’s sharing his secrets with you.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • The FIRE movement that changed the money game.
  • The counterintuitive approach to saving money.
  • What *nobody* tells you about retiring early.
  • The 70/30 framework for investing (and making other big life decisions).
  • Why you must play offense AND defense with your money.
  • The “buy now, pay later” trap that’ll crush your financial future, if you let it.
  • The fire step everyone must take to create financial freedom.

Watch now and let the Financial Samurai slice through your excuses and show you exactly how to set yourself up — for life — no matter where you’re starting.

DIVE DEEPER: Create an abundance mindset with investor Arian Simone and conquer your money fears with “The Budget Mom,” Kumiko Love.

Now it’s your turn.

All the financial strategies in the world are useless until YOU put them to use!

In the comments below, let us know your biggest insight, aha, or takeaway from today’s episode. Even better, tell us one action you’ll take this week to step closer to your financial goals and dreams.

You could…

  • Calculate your net worth
  • Increase your savings rate by 10%
  • Increase your 401k contributions and make sure you take advantage of your employer's 401k match
  • Make a plan to pay off credit card debt
  • Talk to your partner about your family’s financial goals

Or something else. Take the step that’ll have the biggest impact on your financial picture.

Creating a financially free, secure, and abundant future IS possible for you. So get this money insight into action ASAP. And have fun with it! Because as Sam reminds us:

“At the end of the day, what's the point of having money? It's to live a better life.”
