Tony Whatley delivered this closing speech about Freedom at the 365 Driven "Advance 4" event on May 21, 2022, in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. Tony speaks about 3 types of freedom we should all be striving for: financial freedom, time freedom, and mental freedom. Financial freedom isn't just about the numbers, but more so about the freedom to choose where your money is coming from and have the ability to make decisions that will bring in more money if that is what you want. It’s not being tied to a company or job where you don’t have control of the money you can acquire. 

The next is time freedom. Tony talks about how we have been sold an idea that we have to hustle all the time in order to be successful. In reality, we should be intentionally delegating tasks to others in order to free up time for things that we enjoy. This is the key to scaling a business while getting your time back. Focus on your strengths and get help with everything else.

The last freedom is mental freedom. Tony shares about his near death experience and the perspective on life he gained from going through that. The truth that we all have to face is that we will die someday. Wasting time and energy on what other people are going to think, or fearing judgment is a waste of time and holds us back from taking action, making a real impact, and creating a life we are truly proud of.
