The True Currency of Life is Time...

Are You In Control of Yours?

My Story

Tom Qiao in Chiang Mai

Hey, I'm Tom - the founder of Flexibility Is Freedom - pleased to meet 'cha! 😀

I used to work 9-5 (okay, more like 9-9) as an investment analyst for a major pension plan. As an undergraduate business student, it was literally a dream come true!

So why did I quit my career and become a passive income entrepreneur? 🤔

Well, I had many reasons (5, to be precise) but it boiled down to this: I realized that while my bank account was going up, my "time" account was slowly ticking away. 🕒

It dawned upon me the irony of trading the best years of my life for money, only to end up (attempting) to trade that money back for a taste of youth again (the "midlife" crisis).

That's why I became a passive income entrepreneur - to build brandable businesses and acquire long-term assets that generate passive to semi-passive income. 📈

Welcome back to Flexibility Is Freedom! This year, it feels like winter is coming so much faster than before.

August 2021

August was a massive month - revenue increased to over $1,500 for the first time ever! This month's result comes on the heels of July 2021's traffic and revenue recovery, largely due to Google's July 2021 Core Update. While I'm definitely excited (and relieved), I know there's still more work to do, both to maintain […]

July 2021, the first month of my 4th year, was an excellent one on all fronts - my website recovered the traffic it lost from the December 2020 Core Update, my productivity reached an all-time high, and I made significant strides in my personal life as well.

Believe it or not, but it's been 3 years since I began building passive income! Honestly, it feels more like 5 years (or forever), especially with the last 1.5 years of COVID-19, but we don't get to choose the time we live in, only how we live with the time we're given.
