A financial planner and host of the Financial Autonomy podcast, Paul Benson, says there are three main paths to financial autonomy: using property, shares or self-employment, or a combination, to reach your ultimate goal.
However, unlike the financial independence movement, which is largely focused on the notion of being rich to retire early, financial autonomy is more about realising that you can spend money on what makes you happiest throughout life, but this means you have a little less to spend on other things.
Financial autonomy is about taking control of your money in a practical way.
