Financial Freedom: Four Groups Of People You Must Not Emulate In Your Quest To Be Financially Free

Financial Freedom: Four Groups Of People You Must Not Emulate In Your Quest To Be Financially Free

One of the key principles of success is the principle of emulation. This principle says, you will be successful in the proportion to which you find out what other successful people are doing, and then do the same things yourself over and over again. As a wealth seeker, this principle can dramatically increase your probability of achieving financial success. Unfortunately, there is a limit to which you should emulate some groups of “financially successful” people. Listen, in your quest to live a financially free life, there are four groups of people you must not emulate or model their spending habits and lifestyle. Many of these people came into wealth, not as a result of financial intelligence or wit, but have wealth thrust on them through luck. As a result, they are careless in their spending. They live a lavish lifestyle and spend as if there is no tomorrow.  1. The Pseudo-affluent: these are mostly professionals and corporate executives, who earn a high income, but spend the majority of what they make on lavish lifestyles.  They live big and large: they drive the latest high-end luxury cars; wear expensive designer suits and clothes fly first class and dine at the best restaurants.  They have the appearance of wealth; unfortunately, they do not have the true substance of wealth- assets. As a result, they are usually just one to two paychecks away from being broke. 2. Wealth Inheritors  Many wealth inheritors are prodigal sons and daughters who are unable to preserve, let alone grow whatever wealth they inherited.  These are people who have not had to worry about money for much...

Revealed! Why Paper Assets Might Not Be Your Best Bet For Building Wealth.

The financial plan sold to most of us by our parents and the authority figures in our lives involves going to school, getting a good job, saving 10% of our paychecks, and ultimately investing our savings in the stock market. Then one day, say 45 years from now, we would retire rich. Unfortunately, as laudable as this plan may seem, its ability to deliver the expected wealth and financial freedom is very pitiable and unreliable. First, it’s important to note that paper assets (stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and other traditional investments) are not great wealth-building vehicles. This is because of the mathematical limitations to their growth. Consequently, paper assets are better used as a parking place to preserve and grow the purchasing power of wealth that has been made through real estate and business ownership. To fully understand the power and the importance of this insight that I’m sharing with you, pick up your phone and call a stock broker or financial planner and tell him or her of your desire to achieve financial freedom, and that you need their help to achieve this. Also, let him or her know that you are presently finding it difficult to eat and pay your bills. After this revelation, watch his attitude and disposition towards you. It will take God for him to pick up your calls again. This is because stock brokers and financial advisers are in the business of helping you manage the wealth you already created. And are not in the business of helping you build wealth in the first place. One truth you must embrace is that rich...

Online Course: Turn your knowledge into a money-making machine.

One of the major downsides to most of the teachings being peddled by most supposedly financial gurus and experts is the tendency to focus on how to save and invest money without first teaching people how to get the money they would save and invest. This article is to open your eyes to one avenue through which anyone and everyone can generate income. The main reason I tend to favor this path to wealth building is that we all have the basic raw material that is needed to make this a reality: knowledge. Your knowledge is all you need to generate income through this avenue. And the good news is we are all knowledgeable in something; something that others are ignorant or less knowledgeable of. And it is our privilege to teach these things to these other people for a fee. Knowledge monetization is one of the most lucrative business models with great potential to create financial freedom there is. It is a business model that offers you the opportunity to productize the knowledge between your two ears. Yes, your knowledge can be turned into an information product that would generate a good income for you. You might want to ask what an information product is. What Is an information product? An information product is simply a product that conveys knowledge or information for instructional or educational purposes. It is a structured format where your knowledge, experience, and skills are taught and communicated to someone, in order to meet a predefined purpose.  Generally, an information product contains important facts about a subject or issue of interest.
