How Much Money Is Enough?

When working towards financial independence, your goal is to your passive income to provide you with enough money to live comfortably.

The moment you decide you should define how much money is enough, is one of the most important financial decisions you  can make.

It’s important to know where your priorities lie. Your priorities are what you really value spending money on, and you would never want to cut out of your life.

If it’s difficult for you to know where to start, there are a couple of basic steps in personal finance that you  can take:

1. It’s important to save enough money for an emergency fund. I would advise saving money between three and six months of living expenses, depending on  what makes  you comfortable.

2. Write down your financial term goals and work toward them every month. It is important to know what you’re striving for. It will make you motivated to  keep going.

3. Be your own financial advisor in terms of planning your retirement. Retiring early or not, you need to know how much money you need to retire.

4. Things you can plan for is to pay off any debt you may have; this includes credit card debt and student loans. Save more each month, live frugal, earn some extra money, stop living paycheck to paycheck.

5. Investing is often perceived by people as difficult or impossible in their situation. I don’t see it this way. When you’re saving for the future, investing in the stock market will help you tremendously.
