Welcome to The Freedom Friend! I'm Michelle Liberman.
Before I talk about the obvious - freedom - I want to tell you exactly what I want for you.
My goal is to help you add more value to your life. To help you add more value to your business or your job. My ultimate, awesome, kick-ass goal? I want to add more value back into America. Maybe you don't know what I mean by that. I'm about to tell you.
I have traveled to many different countries around the world and I can tell you one thing they all have in common. Hardly any freedom. Except for the super rich and the small ruling elite, citizens of most countries have little opportunity, no economic freedom, and few personal liberties to pursue their dreams. Even many Western countries have taken significant steps backwards from freedom.
You know the worst part? The United States has been strolling down this path for decades. We are progressing further away from our roots of liberty. We are waving goodbye to our rule of law and stretching our arms out to the rule of men. The very thing that is in direct opposition to America's DNA and the whole point of our independence.
More than TWENTY-FIVE centuries of brutal, murderous, despotic, merciless history finally led to the ONE almost free country on earth...and we have managed to let most of those freedoms slip away into the night in just TWO centuries.
Americans still live a better lifestyle than most around the world. That's because we're still propped up on the fumes of our once magnificent engine of economic freedom, free markets and prosperity that lasted for over a century. But those fumes are dissipating. Soon the smoke will clear and we will find ourselves standing in the reality of the choices we have made. Most Americans are not going to like it.
You can do something about it.
What The Freedom Friend offers.
We have tools, information, and knowledge that will help you recognize the economic and social environment you live in. With that wisdom, you can make better money decisions for your business and in your life. You can vote for politicians who really stand for America's principles of freedom.
If you know how things work, your decisions will change. Your life will change. America will change.
I want you to be rich and free.
Let me be super clear on this.
Rich. Rich in opportunity. Rich in love. Rich in health. Rich in happiness. Rich in life. Rich in time with family and friends. Rich in understanding. Rich in freedom. Sure, rich in money and material goods, too, if that's your desire. Couldn't hurt.
Free. Free to pursue your dreams. Free to believe what you want. Free to speak your mind. Free to move about your world without blocks and walls. Free from persecution. Free from theft. Free from being under someone else's thumb. Free from being forced to do things against your will. Time freedom. Financial freedom. Personal freedom.
I ask you for three things. An open heart, an open mind, and a real desire for a good life that you're in more control of.
You might be introduced to ideas and concepts that you are unfamiliar with. They might challenge current ideas you support. I encourage you to understand the concepts fully before deciding on them. If they still don't make sense to you after giving them a sporting chance, fair enough. But that has never happened yet! Everyone who makes the effort willingly understands these concepts pretty fast.
I'm a passionate actress/model with entrepreneurial tendencies, love for God, and an unusual obsession for freedom in my life and in yours.
I'm first-gen American. The hybrid product of two immigrants, a Russian-Jewish dad from Poland and a Chinese mum from Malaysia. Born and raised in America. Yep, made in the USA, baby. In my life, I got to pursue passions that most people around the world don't even know to dream about. Know why? Yep. Freedom.
Had I lived where my Mum and Dad grew up, no chance.
One thing I love is my last name. It feels like divine providence. Liberman is derived from the Latin root "Liber" meaning "Liberty" or "Free". Do you see where this is going? You do, right? My God given family name means "Free man"! If that's not divinely fitting, I just don't know what is!
My Mum and Dad immigrated, separately, from two different Socialist countries. Countries where governments enjoy obscene amounts of control and power. Governments that don't relish giving their citizens very much freedom or opportunity. Why would they? It would lessen their control and power. Citizens' dreams, goals, and desires don't thrive in places like that. Violence, force, and theft are masters in those countries.
So Mum and Dad immigrated to America and met there.
- Economic opportunity.
- Fundamental rights.
- And rule of law to protect the first 4 things.
But even my Mum and Dad, who are so grateful to have gotten to live in the Land of the Free recognize that the land isn't really that free anymore. A growing, intrusive government has taken over. And our citizens have let them.
America's economic environment is shifting. Not in the direction that helps any of us. America is starting to resemble the countries my mum and dad fled from. I want America's success to continue. Not die out in a flame of shame.
That means I want you to succeed. America, and the world, needs the special God given talents you have inside of you to be shared with the world. Let's set you up so you can share it and prosper from it!
I help people recognize their economic environment, understand money, and take proper wealth building, freedom supporting actions in their particular circumstances.
The tools I offer are for individuals and entrepreneurs. Money affects us all. It is neither evil nor good. It is a form of trade. And we live in a world where we cannot exist without money and trade. Simple. Know it. Use it.
Fairy tales of societies with no money or trade might as well sing the praises of unicorns and the Easter Bunny. There is no economic sense or reality in that kind of thinking. People would perish in an environment like that.
I've been blessed to pursue all my passions.
From growing up in a beautiful, sheltered, mountain culture in Colorado, to studying Finance in the hallowed halls of Boston College, to the manic frenzy of modeling in New York City, to the artistic depths of acting in New York theater, to the "sparkling" world of film and TV in Los Angeles, to creating a top LA personal styling business from scratch, to living in Singapore, to traveling the world to study other governments and economies, to currently writing a book about it, I have lived in prosperity and I have lived below the poverty line. Free choice and opportunity rocks.
But opportunity didn't just fall at my feet. I carved it out myself with the help of God. Created it. I've done nothing "traditional" or "typical" in my life. Or easy. There are no rules. You can design your life.
If you know how the system works you can design it even more effectively. I believe that knowing how money works and how people use it, and that includes how governments use it, needs to be learned by everyone.
I want you to live out your passions with motivated intention and good direction.
Now, I know you're thinking I'm the all-knowing economics and money goddess person lady. (Fine. You weren't thinking that.) I'm definitely no 'wise-woman on the top of a mountain' (even though my Contact page would suggest otherwise). I'm an eternal student. I make my fair share of mistakes. I'm always learning and growing but I promise you this: I am dedicated to always having integrity, being straight up with you, and honestly sharing what I'm living and learning with you. And I am uber-committed to wading through the hard concepts to make them easier and more fun for you to grasp and use.
You will learn useful, practical money and economic wisdom with my videos, articles, blogs, products, and programs by me and legendary leaders in the industry. I am grateful to have been mentored by intellectual giants. Hang with me and you'll get to share in their brilliance too.
