If you’re a Millennial, Gen Z, or Gen Alpha, then you might be curious about Financial Independence. If you’re a Boomer or Gen X, you probably still refer to it as “Retirement.” In its simplest sense, both phrases refer to the time when you have enough passive income to pay your living expenses as they increase from year to year due to inflation for the remainder of your life.

Whatever you call it, if you desire a passive income that you cannot outlive, then there are three things you need. You must:

1. Know your independence number
2. Build a resilient “all-weather” portfolio – what we call a Mindful Portfolio
3. Embrace a management and withdrawal process – what we call Mindful Management

We host the Bootcamp every quarter and we limit the size of the Bootcamp because we want everyone who joins us to walk away with each of these questions answered.
