Episode Summary

Krisstina welcomes to the podcast self-made millionaire, financial writer, and co-founder of Future Money Trends, Daniel Ameduri. Holding a very specific view of finance, Daniel is an advocate for financial independence and believes that it is an attainable and worthwhile endeavor. He equates financial independence to the freedom to live the life you want to live. Daniel is constantly searching for future financial trends and is currently researching and investing in the fields of cryptocurrency and cannabis.

In this episode, we talk about wealth preservation and breaking from conventional norms to achieve financial independence. Daniel and Krisstina both share the view that passive income streams are necessary to achieve and sustain financial independence. Daniel recalls his firsthand experience with achieving wealth, losing it in a financial collapse, and struggling to earn it all back. This included a complete and total shift in Daniel’s lifestyle. He details the process by which he graduated from financial stability to financial independence and, eventually, to a liquid millionaire net worth. Finally, Daniel gives advice to financially independent individuals who are looking to invest their money wisely.
