How can one ensure his freedom

His Financial freedom, that is.

I have always wondered especially after reading rich dad, poor dad by robert kiyosaki on what is the right course in life. Should i strive to find a job, start a business, go investing etc. As he says ultimately we must make money work for us and not the other way round. The problems with starting a business or investing are its high start-up costs. So, is there as solution? Note that I am not interested in get rich quick schemes. Hard work is needed of course for everything, or we may get ourselves involved in a scam. So far, i have been introduced to one solution. See my signature. Well any sharings you all have?
