You've heard me say it before one of the most significant investments of time that we will make is in our life is our career. The average person spends 47 years of their life from the age of  18-65 working to secure their living.

And we want to help you make that time count.

Most people reach retirement at 65 (if we're lucky), but what if we flipped the script on the traditional approach to retirement because retirement isn't about age- it's a financial number.

More and more people are leaving the workforce early as they reach financial independence early by saving and aggressively investing between 50-75 percent of their income.

We are the authors who narrate the ups and downs of our stories to achieve our dreams, and our guest today is the prime example of being the author of her story and flipping the script on her life.

MK Williams is an author and independent publisher who recently left her corporate day job to pursue her dream full time. After finding the Financial Independence community, she was able to save enough to be able to take this leap into her new career. Now she is focused on helping her clients publish their books and learning to let go of her workaholic ways.


We’ll explore: 

  • The Financial Independence community that propelled MK into financial independence 
  • What it's like to leave your career after 10 years to begin the journey of entrepreneurship.
  • Why work-a-holic habits don't die when you leave your 9-5.


You’ll discover: 

  • Why recalibrating your self worth is a constant journey.
  • How to let go of the ego around "being important at work (it's easier said than done).
  • The strategies MK learned, executed, and evolved to lead a successful career, obtain financial independence, and launch into entrepreneurship.
