ROAD TO FINANCIAL FREEDOM
A 27 years young free soul
I've always been trying to improve people's life, seeking for ideas that could change our way of living.I first started a business in the drone industry when I was 19, developed my own drones and stabilization camera heads mount to produce high quality video content for many industries as movies, extreme sports, advertising or TV series. I was the official Xgames' drone pilot.
I then moved to San Francisco to run SLICK for 3 years, from crowdfunding, fundraising, R&D, manufacturing in China to worldwide distribution.I then realized that I was better at launching consumer product to the market, applied the 80/20 rule and now focus my time on marketing.
Finally, I've always been obsessed with freedom. I don't want to be rich, but in order to reach ultimate freedom, i'm in a quest of financial independence and retire in my 30's. Not to lay my ass on some white sand beach but to decide on a daily basis what I wanna work on.

My path to Financial Freedom
Be frugal & save | Make money while you sleep | Retire
Summer 2019, the first book I ever read change my life.
Reading "Rich dad, poor dad" made me realize something that seems so obvious today but truly unknown before.
Compound interest is extremely powerful and will make you rich fast. 99,9% of people don't know shit about personal finance.
So I've worked for 6 months on different projects, made $130K, saved 95% of it. Made tons of research on investments with the best ratio risk/reward. And realized that this money now sitting on a diversified portfolio is making $938 of passive income.
BOOM, I get hooked up on a simple and frugal lifestyle, making money on projects that I love and saving as much as I can to reach financial independence.
Current savings: $121K | Average interest rate 9% | Target age to retire: 32
