Flight Plan Part 3: You’re ready to start. Now what? Take off!


Financial Independence, Introduction for Beginners / Friday, February 16th, 2018

I have been definitely slacking in getting this post together. Not sure how many writing and re-editing revisions I have had already. At this point of the blogging space, what hasn’t already been said? I ended up just deleting most of my original post and decided to go a different route.

For now, I would say that others have already created material on these particular subject matters that are superior. I get the feeling that it would be a disservice to the original creators, if  I did not share their excellent content with my TENS of readers! (insert sad face emoji)

That is why, I am choosing to post ,in my opinion, the best of all the resources which will help you get started. Pick and choose what you find interesting and learn from them. They are not listed in any particular order.

Hope these will give you some interesting ideas and a good foundation to start your journey!

Disclosure: I do not get paid by any of the articles I am linking to. The exception are the 2 articles of my own, of which I would get ad revenue from the sidebars and such (the $.000001 unless you happen to accidentally click on it).
