Financial independence at age 25?

What Were You Doing  At The Age of 25? Were you financially independent? Or were you trying to find a way to repay your college loans, and simply trying to make ends meet from day to day? Or maybe you were just having a good time. Yeah!

If you’re past the age of 25, what’s the situation like now? Still struggling or are you financially comfortable? If you’re financially comfortable, then that’s great! You might want to share this post with someone you think can benefit from it. I am sure that person would appreciate it. But for those of you who are not financially comfortable and you’re looking to achieve that goal conveniently, then read on.

I think that for most of us, at the age of 25, we’re simply focused on enjoying life, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. Very few of us might think about being a millionaire at that age. For sure, I was not thinking about that. I was working full time, studying part time and travelling with a group I was singing with. The thought of being a millionaire never entered my mind.

Maybe some of us think that it’s not possible to achieve such a lofty goal at such a young age, I don’t know. Or maybe it’s because we’re contented and focused on other things. Hey, that’s great too. Then again, maybe it’s because we’re just comfortable taking that old familiar route to achieving our financial objectives. You know, get that dream job, save some money and let that money grow, with the hope that our future nest egg would get to an amount that would allow us to retire in comfort.

Calculating the bills to be paid

Working at your Dream job?

But the reality of that situation is that most of us don’t get that dream job and sometimes we just end up doing a job to make ends meet financially. Me, I’m not so crazy about my job these days. Added to that, the interest rates that banks pay on savings, have been steadily declining over the years and it is hoped that that 401k would remain safe, while growing. The way things are going these days, who knows. That being the case, sometimes we need to exercise a bit of flexibility in reaching a particular goal.

Plan abc being flexible

Okay, so perhaps most of us may not have been thinking about being a millionaire at 25, but here are a couple of guys who were. Meet Carson and Kyle; these two guys, through trial and error and some effort, figured out how to make money online, and that they did. They became millionaires at the age of 25!

Now they haven’t been 25 years old for a little while now (Lol), but they have continued to make more money online and the best part is that they’ve been sharing their knowledge and expertise with an entire community of people, so that these community members can learn to do the same thing that they are doing; make money online.

No need to reinvent the wheel here. No struggle, no fuss, I like it.

Thinking outside the box

Admittedly, making money online is not the traditional route to financial independence, but you know what, more and more people are realizing that the internet presents a fantastic opportunity to do just that. This is what I mean about being flexible in achieving a goal. If the traditional way isn’t working for you, then why not try a proven but not so traditional route?

Think about this for a minute. Have you ever bought anything online, or do you know of anyone who has purchased stuff online. I am sure you do, even if you yourself haven’t bought anything online. The fact of the matter is, quite a number of people prefer to buy stuff online.

Why people shop online

Added to that, online sales have been increasing over the years.

Ecommerce sales worldwide

To me, this suggests that the opportunities are out there, you just need to know what to do and how to do the relevant tasks to get in on the action. So what do you do with an opportunity that can help you become more financially independent? You take it! Well if you want it that is.

It’s the same as finding a better job that you like that offers you more money, only it’s better. That’s because your online business can be based on something that you like; a hobby, an interest you may have, or whatever your passion is and you can do this in your spare time.

I know, you’re probably thinking that this sounds too good to be true, but it’s a reality created by the world wide web. So if you want to turn your passion into a thriving online business and become financially independent, then you should definitely check out this opportunity.

Read a bit about Kyle and Carson, how they got started and what you can expect with this online opportunity.

  1. Hey,
    I may have passed the age of 25, but ever since I can remember I wanted to be a millionaire! Even when I was a small kid I fancied luxurious things. I told myself I would make it by the age of 30 and I am still convinced I am. There is a fire burning inside of me that won’t go out until I reached my goal. Kyle and Carson are two very inspirational guys and I wish I would have joined the internet craze when I was a bit more nerdy and geeky about pc’s. Anyway it’s never to late and that’s why I joined WA and I want to make it my goal to live off WA within the next year 🙂
    Amazing post, very motivating 😉

    • HI Esteban
      Thank you. Happy to provide you with some more motivation. You are so right, it is never too late to try and achieve your goals. Yes, sometimes it depends on what it is, so we have to be realistic in setting goals and be flexible to allow ourselves to get there. Achieving your goal of becoming a millionaire, is definitely one that is achievable. Thanks to the internet, it’s easier to accomplish,, once you find the right opportunity.

      It’s good to know that you’ve stuck with your dream, that you’ve put you plan into action, and that you are putting in the effort required to achieve your goal.

  2. Hi Vanessa:

    Your website is very well organized. I like how easy it is to find everything you are looking for. This article detailing the story of Kyle and Carson is really well done. It highlights what two people who have a dream can achieve. I also really liked the graph showing the benefits and reasons why more people are buying online as opposed to in store purchases.

    How long have you been with Wealthy Affiliate? How much success have you had? I imagine you have been pretty successful with a website with as much information as this one has.

    Excellent job!


    • Hi Steph
      Thanks for your kind words. I think I can do more, and that’s my objective, as they say, rinse and repeat once you find what’s working for you. I think that more and more people are shopping online because of all the inherent benefits; convenience, no long lines, no hassles, and you can do it in the comfort of your own home. So it makes sense having an online business. The key is being educated on what to do and learning how to do what’s required and at Wealthy Affiliate, that’s what happens.

  3. Hi Vanessa, thanks for your inspiring article. It is true that the trends of shopping online has been increasing tremendously nowadays. Starting an online business seems to be a promising way to generate more income. Definitely worth trying out I think.

    • Hi Saber
      Thanks for stopping by. I agree with you 100% that starting an online business is definitely worth a try. As you noted online shopping has been increasing and that alone speaks for itself. Once you learn what you need to do, then there’s no telling the kind of income that you can make from an online business.

  4. Hello

    Excellent article, I was just browsing when I came across your article. Thank you for sharing this information with us, I have found some very useful pointers to take away with me. I know others will also benefit from it. You clearly know your stuff.

    Is it actually possible to make a million online ? if so How would you suggest is the easiest way to make a million this kind of money for a beginner ?

    again thank you for sharing, I know many people will benefit from knowing this now. I hope to hear from you soon, I will pop back in a few days to hear your response.


    • Hi Jack
      Thanks for stopping by. Happy to know that you’ve found the information helpful. Believe it or not Jack, it’s possible to make millions online but you have to put in the required effort. It won’t just happen like that. I recently witnessed a guy grossing approximately $125,000. in one month! What did he do? He advertised his online business like crazy. He invested quite a bit and made quite a bit.

      The thing is Jack, running an online business is the same as running a brick-and-mortar business. The same principles apply in reference to promotion; you’ve got to let people know that your business exists and what you’re offering. In my post “Is Having an Online Business Really Worth It,” you’ll see how much an online business can make you on a regular basis.

      So if you’re wonder if it’s worth it, you should definitely check out that post and see for yourself. It’s all about continued effort and staying true to accomplishing the goal, even when you don’t see the results your looking for.

      Thanks again for dropping by and let me know if there is anything I can help you with.

  5. Wow! 25. Had a baby at the time. My son was 1. Not going to tell you how old he is now. But when I was 25 there was only dial up and AOL was the way to go, if that tells you anything.

    Very interesting article. I would love to learn how to make money online. What type of business model does Wealthy affiliates teach. Is it just affiliate marketing or does it get into any e-commerce type training too?

    • Hi Christine,

      Lol. We all have different goals at different ages and for most of us, the thought of becoming a millionaire, is the furthest thing from our mind at that point. But even if it that was not one of our goals, having an online business is a great way to secure yourself financially, and Wealthy Affiliate can teach you how to do that.

      At Wealthy Affiliate you’ll learn the ‘ins’ and ‘outs’ of having a successful online business, which includes affiliate marketing and if e-commerce is the way you want to go, there are numerous resources available that you can tap into and access so you can do that as well.
      The absolutely great part is that you can get started absolutely free, so you don’t spend anything up front to check out the opportunity. You can access Wealthy Affiliate from any of the links in the above post and get started right away.

      I look forward to helping you succeed in your online endeavors and welcoming you to the great online community that is Wealthy Affiliate.

  6. Let me think a bit because I became 25 years old 2 years ago. When I was that age I started at my first real job wishing that I could start my own internet business.

    I wish I could have started earlier but I am happy that I did not wake up at 60 years when I realize my pension is useless. It is also never too late to start but I think the earlier we start the better.

    • Hi Viljoen

      Thanks for dropping by. I absolutely agree with you about starting early and planning for those retirement days and having an internet business can definitely help add to that retirement nest egg.

  7. Wow, if only I had considered the thought of making money online at the age of 25. Life would have been so much better.

    I was always a money conscious person, but I never thought us ordinary folks could become something extraordinary all thanks to the internet and guys like Kyle & Carson.

    If you are 25 and reading this, jump in now. Don’t waste years like I did. Learn from the best and live the best life possible. Put the PS4 down, stop watching TV and get started!.

  8. wow this is quite interesting because i have been suffering on my early 20th and have done everything i can but i couldnot manage it until now that i have an idea from you post and found it more interesting

    thanks for the updates and please keep me updated


  9. Hello and thanks for sharing is post, what was I doing at 25, man that was a very long time ago but I get this right I think that at that age I had a job did not like where my life was headed because of the many struggles. And here I am today believing that those dreams that I had a long time ago can still happen. Especially in this day and time with great business models like wealthy affiliate. Thanks again for sharing your awesome post.

    • Hi Norman

      Thanks for dropping by. Most of us don’t really think of achieving our finacial goals at such an eaerly age, and sometimes we might just give up on achieving some of our goals. But I’ve got to say, having an online business allows you to achieve so many more of your goals, not just financially, but you also get that flexibility to what you want when you want. You can’t help but love that.
