Sometimes we think that to be financially independent is not at our reach because we have limited opportunities to improve our career journey, but actually, this is just a perception. When evaluating a new opportunity do not discount yourself for not having the experience right off, be a risk-taker and go for the next big role, make your mark in the near term, and you will learn everything else.
