He doesn’t tell you to quit your 9-5 and become self-employed, stop drinking coffee, or sell your firstborn to reach your financial freedom number. The overall theme is: money is limitless and time isn’t. So, maximize your time.

Grant Sabatier’s Financial Freedom – review by Laura at Every Day by the Lake | USA

Grant’s writing style is conversational and approachable. You feel like you’re having a beer with him, rather than reading some dry finance book.

Curator’s Corner, Volume 9: Financial Freedom – review by Riley at Young and the Invested | USA

Grant aims to dispel myths about money, namely that it’s complicated. He targets his advice in just the opposite way: his included math can be done by grade-schoolers and doesn’t require financial genius to pull off.

The one thing about this book that really stands out is the fact that it is current to the times and it comes from a place of abundance instead of scarcity.

The relationship between time and money should not be linear. We should learn the “enterprise mindset” and apply it to our finances. The sooner you can break that linearity the faster you can reach your financial goals.

Chapter 2Time is More Valuable Than Money: Why You Can and Should “Retire” Early – chapter review by Michael at Your Money Geek | USA

What is excellent about Financial Freedom is Grant chooses to focus on increasing income instead of extreme frugality. Extreme frugality is great. However, it’s a hard sell, especially if you’re not making a lot of money.”

Chapter 3: What’s Your Number? – chapter review by Adam at Minafi | USA

What I connect most with from Financial Freedom is the idea that the future is flexible. If you over-save and stow away far more than you’ll ever need, there’s an opportunity cost associated with it. That’s time that you’re not spending following your passions.”

Chapter 4Where Are You Now? Getting Clarity on Your Finances – chapter review by Jerry at Peerless Money Mentor | USA

While some personal finance books can be a bit preachy at times, Grant refrains from judging you. Instead, he shows you how the purchasing decisions you make today impact your financial future. Unlike a lot of personal finance books that focus on extreme frugality, the main focus of this book is to teach you how to maximize your income.”

Chapter 5Next-Level Money: How to Build Wealth Quickly – chapter review by Lily at Merry for Money | USA

Financial Freedom sets by example but it is not a memoir book. This book is not about Grant or his journey to financial freedom; it’s about giving the reader everything they need to reach financial freedom themselves.”

Chapter 6Is It Worth It? 11 Ways to Think About Money Before You Buy Anything – chapter review by The CFO at Chief Money Man | Europe

Chapter 7The Only Budget You’ll Ever Need: How to Live for Free and Increase Your Savings Rate at Least 25% – chapter review by Fred at Money With a Purpose | USA

If you’re looking for a “how to” book that can help you move closer to your financial goals, consider Financial Freedom, A Proven Path to All of the Money You’ll Ever Need.”

Chapter 8Hack Your 9-to-5: Use Your Full-Time Job as a Launching Pad to Freedom – chapter review by Mike at Miked Up Blog | USA

Earning more money from your employer is an art form, but as Grant illustrates – it’s not the incredibly uncomfortable situation many of us assume it to be. Like most things – just make calculated decisions, then move forward.
