Hi, my name is John W. Newman, lifestyle entrepreneur, online business mentor, avid investor, and proud husband and father of four beautiful girls… and welcome to My Road to Financial Freedom.com!
The purpose of me creating this website is to help people to take the driving wheel on their OWN road to financial freedom.
My aim is to empower, inspire and equip you with the money management, mindset and strategies for success.
My number one goal is to help people to create BOTH time and financial freedom, to escape their comfort zones, and live a balanced life with their health, wealth and relationships.
I have discovered that this can best be achieved by building a successful online business that will create both the cash flow, and the lifestyle, so you can FINALLY live your dream life, WITHOUT the money worries!
This site will be full of tools and strategies that have worked for me, and I will be sharing my experiences and successes, as well as my mistakes and failures.
But one thing I always believe, is that you only ever truly fail if you quit!
But first let me tell you a little bit about myself.
I grew up in a small country town in northern Tasmania, raised by a hard working single Mother who worked as a cleaner at the local hospital for over 20 years.
My Mum had a lot of help growing up from My Nan and Pop and I never felt that I was poor or I was missing out on anything, although this may of had something to do with being an only child and the eldest Grandson, and I was a little bit spoilt. (this is why my wife says I have trouble with sharing now ha ha! 😉 )
Anyway, I grew up in a happy household, I went okay at school but never really excelled, although I did well at sport playing golf, cricket, volleyball and Australian rules football.
Eventually at the age of 21, my best friend and I left the chilly shores of Tasmania and crossed the country on an adventure to the goldfield’s of Western Australia, eventually gaining jobs as dump truck drivers in the mines.
This then became my life until I turned around one day about 15 years later and realised here I was… middle aged with a couple of failed relationships, paying child support, working in a job I pretty much hated, I was overweight, drinking too much, but in my mind I was doing “okay”.
I was earning good money and I spent time with my daughters as much as I could, but I was just drifting through life not really going anywhere!
I was stuck in my comfort zone, asleep at the wheel!
Then some things started to change.
First I met the love of my life, my beautiful wife Natalie, then my eldest daughter moved in with us full time.
Things were starting to look up!
Then one day while I was at work, the machine I was on was on standby, and I was reading a book I had come across called “Rich dad poor dad”.
Now this book completely opened my eyes to the way I had been managing and investing my money up until that point.
As I was reading this book, I looked behind me, and there was this old guy who was about 60 years old and he was operating a bulldozer.
He was on some sort of a weird angle rattling and bashing his body about.
It was at this point I had a total epiphany… there was NO way I could continue in this job for the next 20 years or more!
I had to educate myself on creating wealth and financial freedom, for both myself and my family.
I had escape out of this rat race I was in for my own health and sanity!
So for the next couple of years that’s what I did.
I read books, listened to audio’s and went to seminar’s.
I joined a property mentoring group, surfed the net for information, and I also started to work on my mindset because I soon realised that it was my own mind that would either get me to where I wanted to go or stop me in my tracks!
I also started taking action.
I bought a few properties and things were humming along, but I also hit some blocks.
I made heaps of mistakes, got some bad advice and made some bad decisions.
I was mortgaged up to the hilt, in a lot of bad debt and cash flow was becoming a real problem.
I had bitten off more than I could chew…but I was chewing like hell!
I knew I had to increase my cash flow and fast!

But I NEVER gave up.
I kept educating myself!
I found some great mentors that had actually created financial freedom themselves, and I modelled their techniques, strategies and mindset.
I continued to keep learning and growing, and changed my thinking to that of an entrepreneur!
One of the best strategies I learned that has really moved me forward, was learning the skills of making money online and starting up an online business, after I discovered the top internet marketing community of Wealthy Affiliate.
Throughout this site I will be showing you how you too can create financial freedom via a successful online business.
Together with Wealthy Affiliate, I want to become your online business mentor, and help you to achieve success in the online world!
The opportunity has never been greater for ANYBODY to be able to create an income online… whether part time or full time.

This is not some get rich quick scheme, however, it WILL take time and effort!
But this is a legitimate opportunity to learn the skills to create a successful online business, that will lead to success for the long-term.
One thing I have discovered is there is no such thing as a free lunch, and anyone offering overnight success or riches, is most probably a scammer.
