Freedom Leads to Purpose

Memorial Day is a poignant time to pause and reflect on the sacrifices made by the brave men and women who served our country with valor and dedication. It’s a day of remembrance, where we honor those who have laid down their lives in the name of freedom and democracy.

In this spirit of remembrance, we hope you took a moment out of your day yesterday, to think about the immense sacrifices made by our service members and their families.

With deep respect and gratitude, we say thanks to all who served, who help keep us free in this greatest nation.

Frederick Douglass, African-American social reformer, abolitionist, orator, writer, and statesman, knew what freedom meant to him. He escaped from slavery in 1838 with the help of Anna Murray, a woman who later became his wife. After his escape, he became a leader for the Freedom Movement, which would help free other slaves. In the later part of his life, Douglass became a U.S. minister who helped slaves in Haiti; he was the first black man to hold such a high position in the government.

Douglass knew his worth and the worth of all mankind. And gaining his freedom allowed Douglass’s to pursue his real purpose in life, which was to help others gain their freedom and live their lives and free and equal human beings.

For many of us, however, our purpose remains hidden behind the business of making money. Real liberty and freedom in life only comes as a result of running your business in a way that keeps you excited about going to work each day. Or your sense of freedom might come from leaving that business.

If you discover your purpose, it may result in keeping the business but doing it differently, or you may feel your purpose is to leave the business entirely. Either way, that feeling of freedom will only come once you understand your purpose—and what you do isn’t as important as acting from a compelling sense of purpose. That means you can’t wait any longer to talk to a wealth expert who can align your retirement and wealth planning with your passion.

When you feel confident that you have an integrated retirement plan, that allows you the freedom to focus on your purpose, not market returns.


Beware lest you lose the substance by grasping at the shadow.”
