If you’re fed up with the rat race and wish you could live a life of freedom and fulfilment, his story will show you the path.

In this book, you’ll learn:
  • The mindset that helped Dave build wealth and retire at 28.
  • Proven tactics to optimise your spending for more savings AND more enjoyment.
  • How to easily build a portfolio of passive-income-producing investments.
  • The keys to living a happy and satisfying life while working towards your financial goals.
  • Not only what to do, but how, and why.  Real principles, and the philosophy behind the lessons, so you can adapt it to your own life.
What would life be like if you never had to work for money again?

That might sound like a fantasy. But gaining financial freedom is far more achievable than you think.

Dave Gow retired at 28, after a decade of working as a forklift driver. He didn’t win the lottery, inherit a fortune, or get lucky in the stock market. Instead, he discovered a simple set of principles that helped him spend less and invest more, all while increasing his happiness.

“I pass on the lessons I learned from my own FI journey, and what I’d do differently starting again today to help you build a strong financial position and live a life with more free time and less stress.”
