Are you currently living paycheck to paycheck and just getting by? If so, the idea of gaining control and freedom over money may seem a bit unrealistic.

Now that we’ve attempted to define what it means to be independently wealthy, let’s take a look at the steps you can take to achieve it. These are not any secrets but are the simple ways to get you there.

1. Spend Less Than You Make

The first priority is to spend less than you make. This sounds very basic (and it is), but unfortunately, overspending prevents millions of people from reaching their financial goals.

2. Eliminate Debt

Once you have that debt paid off, you’ll have more money each month for saving and investing and you’ll be able to accumulate wealth much faster.

3. Invest with a Plan

In order to become independently wealthy, you’ll need to invest wisely and with a purpose. You don’t need to be a financial expert, but you should make an effort to educate yourself on basic investing concepts and increase your financial literacy, if needed.
