Don’t be a finance dum-dum

First, they say you need to get financially savvy. Think of it as your secret weapon for digital entrepreneurship. You sadly won’t learn this stuff in school, but you can teach yourself using free online resources like podcasts, YouTube, and audiobooks. Once you master the money game, you’ll be all set to turn your dreams into strategy-driven reality.

Rethink your lifestyle

Next, it’s all about living within your means. It might sound a bit dull, but it does a pretty fine job. Savi and Vidit suggest saving a chunk of your cash every month. Their trick? Cut back on splurges like fancy dinners and put that money towards your dream fund. Reach your goals, one smart choice at a time.

Talk money with the honey

Then, they talk about having open money chats. They mean being real with yourself and your partner about your financial goals. Dreams can change, so set smaller goals along the way, like building a ladder to reach your big dreams. Savi and Vidit did just that when they chased their travel dreams.

Funds for when the days ain’t fun

After that, it’s time to be ready for rainy days. No, not the weather – financial surprises. Savi and Vidit recommend saving enough to cover six months of expenses. It’s a smart move, especially in today’s unpredictable world.

Credit cards aren’t really bae

And finally, they’re all about a debt-free life. Start small and only invest what you can afford in your dream business. No loans and no fuss – it’s like a superpower for living life on your terms.

Their approach, while unconventional, has seemingly brought them immense peace of mind and the freedom to pursue what they really love: travel. For Savi and Vid, smart financial decisions mean more than just profit. It needs to add meaning to their life. Thanks to their journey, they’ve shown that you can do anything you dream of when you dare to approach it realistically.
