Welcome to Escaping to Freedom, I'm super excited that you're here!
As vast and full of wonder as the internet is, you've somehow ended up here, right now. That's gotta mean something, right? 😉
Escaping to Freedom is a place for people with a repressed entrepreneurial spirit - people who want more from life than working in a meaningless job and getting a handful of holidays a year.
Life can be so much more than that!
Rather than let you read all the way to the end of this page and waste your precious time, I'm just going to lay out who Escaping to Freedom is for.
This way you'll know you're definitely in the right place - or realise this isn't for you and go back to watching cat videos on YouTube. It's ok, we all do it.
This site is for you if you agree with any of these:
- You are working a 9-5 job that is robbing you of your time, energy and happiness, and you feel that's not what you should be doing with your life.
- You want to learn how money works - how to manage, save and invest it as well as guaranteeing that you'll be able to retire early and never have to worry about money in the future.
- You want to start an online business - anywhere from making a few extra hundred bucks a month to taking the leap from the 9-5 lifestyle and becoming a location-independent entrepreneur.
Still with me? Good! 🙂
The next question you might have is;
"Who is this guy, and why should I listen to him?"
My name is Ricard Torres and, not that long ago, I ticked all three categories above.
I worked an unfulfilling 9-5 job which had me dreaming about using those 8+ hours a day for something more meaningful.
I lived a successful life - at least that's what it looked like from the outside.
I spent money indiscriminately, displaying my above-average wealth by driving an expensive sports car, constantly eating out at fancy restaurants, and splashing out on lavish, all-inclusive holidays.
From the outside, I had made it. There was only one problem:
I wasn't happy.
So I decided to make a U-turn.
I decided that I didn't want to spend the next 40 years of my life working in an office, doing something I felt no connection with.
I decided that life was too damn short to spend it in sitting in an office, doing meaningless stuff just for money.
I then saved $20,000 over the next year so that I could quit my career and start my own online business - this site!
What I've learned in these last couple of years has left such a deep mark on me that I feel it's my duty to teach more people about it.
I've been there - I've felt what it's like to wake up every morning dreading to go through another soul-sucking day at work, coming back home feeling exhausted and not having enough time to do the things you love.
What's more, the more I share my story, the more I realise that there are LOTS of people who would love to quit their jobs and start their own passion-fuelled businesses!
The problem is that they don't know how to do it.
I didn't know where to start either, but after months of reading books, websites, and learning from other entrepreneurs, I've narrowed it down to 2 main points.
The Solution - how to start an online business and quit your job.
If you want to escape the rat race you'll to need to do 2 things:
1. Master your finances
Regardless of how much money you currently earn at your job, you must find out how much you actually need. I'll teach you how to budget and optimise your spending. You'll learn how to spend on what really matters and trim the fat.
2. Create alternative sources of income
Nowadays it's super easy to start an online business. All you need is to start a blog and put in the time to make it profitable. Check out my guide to start your own blog in less than 30 minutes.
If you decrease your expenses, you'll have a lower target to hit with your online business - that means you'll be able to quit the 9-5 earlier!
If that sounds good, then you'll feel right at home here!
