Identifying Obstacles to Financial Freedom

(Money Manager) - What is it that keeps us all from building or optimizing wealth? The answer is 'debt' and Merriam Webster defines it as "the common-law action for the recovery of money held to be due." To most of us, it means "paying bills over time." Imagine a life with no mortgage, car payments, credit card bills, or other loan payments. What portion of your income would you need to make ends meet without those obligations? How dependant would you be on your job? How much could you invest towards retirement?
