Diane Hirschhorn is a teaching assistant professor of finance in the CU Boulder Leeds School of Business.

Being financially independent means having sufficient income, savings or investments to live comfortably for life without relying on a paycheck, experts say.

Financial freedom can mean having enough savings and investments and being able to afford the lifestyle you want for yourself and your family. It is an important goal for many people.

Unfortunately, too many people fall far short of financial freedom. Even without occasional financial emergencies, escalating debt due to overspending is a constant burden that keeps many people from reaching their goals.
