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. 📈

Happy Holidays! 🎄🎅🎁 We are finally at the end of 2020 and that alone is an achievement. Personally, I am cautiously optimistic about the future outlook as vaccines are distributed around the world, however, I wouldn't count on a quick "back-to-normal" in 2021 yet.
