One of the things that I’ve come to appreciate about Kevin O’Leary is his refreshingly candid views about money and what it can do. He unabashedly says that he loves money and that it rules his life. Along those lines, he has also frequently said that wealth will set you free. While I do not believe money is everything, I do agree that money can set one “free.” I have so many interests and hobbies that I would like to further explore, but I either do not have the time or I don’t have the money to do so. For example, I would love to go fishing all the time, but because of my full-time job, I can’t. I would also love to travel to different countries, but my current salary won’t allow me (at least not without dipping into my retirement savings). I long for the day when I can retire and look forward to experiencing at least some of these interests. Some people will say that being free is just a state of mind. That may be true, but it sure helps if you have a few million dollars you can throw around.
