Financial freedom is a big issue for many Americans, with many not knowing how to define it and many others unsure of how to achieve it. Studies have even shown that people have varying opinions on how much they would need to achieve financial freedom.

While much of this can be blamed on different lifestyles, there are likely also people that don't know how much they need. Some sources have suggested that there could be multiple levels of financial freedom.

Whether you're a property manager or a fast-food employee, financial freedom is achievable. We'll talk about how in this article.

1. Plan Your Objectives

The first step to achieving financial freedom is to lay out a plan and outline what you want to do. While the ultimate goal is financial freedom, you can't write that down as the plan's objective. 

The goal needs to be tangible because having a real objective that you can get closer to makes you less likely to give up. It's also important to make the goal realistic at first. 10 million dollars would be nice, but it might also be too far away to feel doable. Starting by trying to have an extra $1000 at the end of a fiscal year after bills and taxes.

2. Save Up

Having an idea of where you want to be is useless if you have no plan for how to get there. The good news is that being a property manager is a good place to start, so you're already on the right track.

From here, there are a few ways to become financially stable. The first is to save up your extra cash until you have a decent amount in the bank. This is the easiest and safest strategy.

Even if you opt for a different strategy, you'll have to save up money for a while. The average property manager makes about $17 per hour in Texas, and rental properties cost hundreds of thousands of dollars in most cases. This brings us to our next point.

3. Buy Rental Property

The next strategy is to invest in real estate yourself. You're already a property manager, so running your own building shouldn't be much of a challenge, right?

The answer is that sometimes it's easier, depending on what you do as a property manager. If you have one specific job, you might find that there are tasks you're not prepared for. If you do handle most of the property management jobs yourself, such as screening tenants and repairing things, you should do well at owning property.

From there, it's a question of managing the property well enough to expand and buy more.
