Deacon and his wife combined finances shortly after marriage – only to find $52,000 in consumer debt was weighing them down. They made the choice – and a plan – to pay down that debt in 18 months.
Moving past debt freedom, Deacon began focusing on complete financial independence.
In his book, “You Can Retire Early!: Everything You Need to Achieve Financial Independence When You Want It” he describes the three ways to financial independence:
- Real estate
- Stock market
Listen in as Deacon shares each way and how it can help you achieve financial independence.

About our sponsor, BUZZ Index
Ever wonder if there were a way to capitalize on all of that online chatter made by millions of investors on social media? Well, your wait is over, because now advances in Artificial Intelligence and Natural Language Processing technologies are at your fingertips…. even if you personally don’t use social media! The BUZZ Index, licensed to an exchange traded fund and trading under ticker symbol BUZ, provides investors with a portfolio of securities that delivers a basket of large cap U.S. equities exhibiting the highest degree of positive investor sentiment. No surveys. No guessing. BUZ only tracks what’s volunteered – and if you ARE online, you know that a lot of information is volunteered: millions of posts, comments and blogs are analyzed each month!
Here’s how it works: First, BUZZ targets the most mentioned large-cap U.S. stocks across the Social Media landscape. The more active the conversation, the greater the reliability of the BUZZ.
Each of the most-mentioned stocks is then given an insight score based on BUZZ’s proprietary analytics and the 75 stocks with the most Bullish scores are included in the Index. Each month the BUZZ is tracked to capture the latest Big Data driven insights and then the 75 companies with the most Bullish scores are selected, positioning BUZZ to capture the highest return potential.
