Tal busts the myths that financial and location freedom is only attainable by those born into a wealthy family, or once they have saved enough to "retire" at the end of life. Nathan Rose, founder of Assemble Advisory
Tal shows us the meaning of true freedom. The liberation of taking your life into your own hands. The wealth of objectives and mindset. And the humbleness of being truly human. Esther Jacobs, the ‘no excuses lady' and best-selling author
“Sorry sir, your credit card transaction failed”
“Please try again”, I asked the cashier in a nervous voice.
“I’m sorry, it seems your credit card is still declined”
This was real. I was broke… so broke I couldn’t even afford to buy groceries.
The date was April 14th. My credit card was maxed out at $33,598.62 and I officially hit an all-time rock bottom.
Here I was, a young man with no money whatsoever and tens of thousands of dollars of credit card debt.
On top of that, I was working at a 9-to-5 corporate job that made me feel dead inside.
I felt like a failure… even worse, I felt empty.
Then something happened…
On that fateful day of April 14th, when on all the financial chips were down, I reached my breaking point.
No more, I said.
No more was I going to be scared about not being able to pay my bills..
No more was I going to feel trapped…
…And no more was I going to slave my life away for someone else….
I decided to regain my freedom, and I was NOT going to wait.
One year, I thought.
This is how much time I gave myself, to build financial and location independence, step-by-step, from the ground up.
Fast forward 12 months… Complete freedom
Exactly one year later, I was trekking the highest mountains on earth in Nepal, breathing in fresh air, feeling freedom in every cell of my body.
No more 9-5, daily commute, office politics, the boss, and of course… no more debt!
I had become free in the purest sense of the word.
How did I do it?
Ever since I made this change, I’ve had dozens of people come up to me asking, how exactly, was I able to achieve this dream - a lifestyle based on freedom from excessive debt in less than a year?
So I decided to write a book... but not just any book - A roadmap to freedom.
A one-year roadmap with the mindset you have to create, the new habits you have to adopt, filled with step-by-step easy-to-follow action plans.
Now, I know what you’re thinking...
“But Tal, there are literally thousands of books on the topics of living anywhere, escaping 9-5 labor, and achieving financial freedom.”
Yes there are. Some of them promise the moon, others are just conceptual.
This book is different.
First, the “One Year to Freedom” is about making a transition in one year, not one month, or one week. There’s a lot of “get rich quick” products out there. The truth is, however, that creating a sustainable freedom business of real value takes both time and the right mindset. This book will guide you through the process so you can go the distance.
Second, financial and location independence is not just about generating more income; that's only half of the equation. This book will also show you how to drastically reduce your ongoing living expenses so that they are well below your new income streams. Otherwise, you're just like a rat on a treadmill, never getting anywhere.
Third, this book explores different opportunities for online income - not just one or two. This is important because it gives you the freedom to choose the path that best fits your personality and skills. You do want to know the options available to you, don’t you?
Fourth, and the most important difference, is that One Year to Freedom is a detailed roadmap, not just 'talk and theory'. It is designed to help you get results, not to overwhelm you with superfluous concepts. This book is filled with in-depth material and dozens of easy-to-follow action plans.
BUT... this book is not for everyone
This book is NOT for you, if:
- You’re looking for a get-rich-quick scheme
- You’re not going to commit to making changes
- You're not willing to put the time and effort
- You don’t have a burning desire to succeed
In short, this is only for the action-takers - the people who are willing to work hard, and see the value of building a real, long-term online business.
Here’s what you get right now when you join the Premium Edition...
1. The One Year to Freedom Roadmap in PDF which includes 500 pages of in-depth material and dozens of easy-to-follow action plans.
Here's a taste of what you'll find inside:
PART ONE: Dreaming Freedom
The first part of the book is all about crafting a freedom vision that drives you, and becoming a person of integrity - someone who's actually committed to accomplish their dream.
PART TWO: Laying Foundations
Similar to how large buildings require strong foundational structure, your freedom journey requires a strong foundation, too. The second part of the book set the building blocks for your big dream: The limiting beliefs you want to eliminate, the habits you want to instill, and the overall framework you want to master.
PART THREE: Starting Out
The third part of the book is all about freedom business creation. I’m going to walk you step-by-step through seemingly complicated things like establishing a direction, building a brand, and staring your journey online.
PART FOUR: Going Minimalist
Creating financial and location independence is not just about generating more income - this is only one part of the game. In addition to building online income streams, you want to dramatically reduce your ongoing living expenses so you can invest the difference in your business. We'll explore this in great detail.
PART FIVE: Building an Audience
The fifth part of the book is about scaling. In this section you’ll learn how to grow an audience and use the power of influence to scale your business online.
PART SIX: Going on Autopilot
The biggest limit with earned income (e.g. salary, freelancing, etc.) is that you only have so much time and can only accumulate so much wealth. Therefore, the last part of the book explores a few primary ways to generate passive income online and will offer a possible roadmap to do so in sequential order.

A roadmap is a plan of action towards a desired outcome. Its primary purpose is to help you take action and get results, not to overwhelm you with superfluous concepts.

The One Year to Freedom roadmap is designed to help you achieve complete freedom in one year. It contains 500 pages of action plans, and comes with online courses as shown on the pricing table. If you can’t see a $39 value in all this, do not buy it.
Freedom in one year, really?
Some of the smartest people I've met throughout the years are cynical about the idea of achieving freedom in one year. The problem is that because most people have never tried such feat, this goal seems unrealistic and unachievable. The One Year to Freedom roadmap is going to walk you through the process step-by-step and dispel some common myths about financial and location independence.
