Kevin Koskella from the Freedom Lovin podcast joins me to discuss how he found freedom in an unfree world. We cover his six strategies for increasing personal freedom:
1. Emotional freedom. This is the first step before anything else. He recommends Nathaniel Branden's work, Non-violent communication, and Acceptance therapy. Without breaking free in this realm, you won't be free anywhere else in life. Focus on this personal stuff first and go out from there.
2. Travel. Traveling can open up new worlds. The world is not a scary place as it turns out.
3. Figure out what you need to be happy. Keep those things, get rid of the stuff that doesn't make you happy. You will be freer when you purge like this.
4. Become financially free. Don't let this be daunting. What are your priorities? People travel the world making $1000/month. That's freedom.
5. Build a business but really think about what will bring you the most freedom. Online businesses offer the advantage of being able to live anywhere. Many businesses will give you less freedom. Watch out.
6. Set up an anonymous New Mexico LLC and start using Bitcoin. Try to deal with banks and government agencies as little as possible, but don't break laws- there are too many other ways to be free to risk going to jail (Harry Browne talks a lot about this).

Choice Conversations has an opening for an editor. Unfortunately my editor had to retire, and I simply do not have the time to do it myself. Podcasts may be few and far between if I don’t get some help! It is super easy, I can talk you through how to do it, it just consumes more time than I have available. If you enjoy the podcast and otherwise receive value from it, editing a few shows for me would be a great way to reciprocate and give value in return.
