To be­come fi­nan­cially in­de­pen­dent and save money you need to live with­out re­ly­ing on debt as a form of sur­vival to pay for gen­eral day-to­day liv­ing ex­penses. While this may be a tough ask, es­pe­cially given the eco­nomic cir­cum­stances most peo­ple face, it’s not en­tirely im­pos­si­ble. Ac­cord­ing to FNB, this is achiev­able through avoid­ing debt to fund your life­style, cut­ting ex­penses, sav­ing and in­vest­ing, ex­am­in­ing your fi­nan­cial de­ci­sions care­fully and re­main­ing con­sis­tent. “There’s no truth in the be­lief that you can only achieve fi­nan­cial in­de­pen­dence when you are wealthy, it all de­pends on de­vel­op­ing good money man­age­ment skills,” says Ester Ochse, chan­nel head of FNB Fi­nan­cial Ad­vi­sory.
