The Green Dot Theory

 
 


 
If you are looking to become financially free, then the best way that you can do so is to become an entrepreneur!  Sure, financial principles are beautiful, but most of those who are wildly successful and live a life of comfort have their own business.

But being in business has a lot more benefits than the business itself.  In this video, Trent Dyrsmid from the online income lab explains how you can become a successful entrepreneur just by being in business.

The Broke People’s Formula

 
 


 
How is it that the rich get richer, and the broke get broker?  Is it because all the rich people are evil and they set up systems to keep the rest of society at bay?  Sure, if you have been subscribed to this newsletter for any amount of time, then you know that there is a lot of that that goes on.

But all successful people are not card carrying members of the Illuminati!!  There are distinctive differences between how rich people, middle class individuals, and poor folks spend there money.  Do you want to know the difference?  Note:  I am not promoting, nor am I a member of getwealthsite.com.  But the video has good info.

Could the Great Philosophers Help You to Success or Freedom from Success?

 
 

Guest Blog Post

Advice is free but good advice is priceless, particularly when it comes to your finances. The internet is filled with people who promise you all sorts of things, from wealth, to health, to happiness and beyond. Some are genuine, some are genuine free thinkers; many are charlatans and worse pedaling cyber snake oil or tired old tropes in emperor’s new clothes. Perhaps in financial advice – and in other parts of our lives – we should be looking elsewhere, at advisers whose words have stood the test of time, and where better to start than with the words of people who thought about this stuff full time, philosophers.

The Bigger Picture

You won’t, of course, find detailed advice on the stock market, the best investment or savings products or how to reduce your mortgage in the works of a man who lived in an ancient civilization like Greece or had to navigate the treacherous waters of Renaissance Italy. No, this is about the big picture – how to approach your life and perhaps to assess what things are really valuable to you.

The Enemy of Capitalism Understood his Foe  

Search for advice on success and you’ll find yourself directed to the thoughts of entrepreneurs and the like – some of whose prime ability seems to be the ability to get their voice heard. Many of the nuggets of wisdom they pass off as their own are in fact simply being passed on, rebranded and charged for of course. Perhaps we should be looking to the source material – put aside the financial guides and head for the philosophy textbooks. This widening of our reading can lead us to some surprising places. A phrase that became popular as the Soviet Union crumbled into what is now Russia was “Marx lied to us about communism, but he was right about capitalism”. While Karl Marx – the father of communism – is often painted crudely as a bogey man who was personally responsible for the evils of every communist dictatorship that took his name in vain, he was a magnificent economist who died in 1883 34 years before the Russian revolution. Marx’s economic thought is now coming back into vogue. In 2014 you’ll find Rolling Stone of all people listing five ways in which Marx successfully predicted that capitalism would developEconomist Richard Wolff is not afraid to refer to the Marxist inspiration in his thought. He is of the left, but even some high flying free marketers are admitting to finding parts of Marx’s critique of capitalism compelling after the 2008 crisis.

Free Your Mind

Marx was an opponent of capitalism, and to oppose it he sought to understand it, doing so more successfully than almost any other thinker. You don’t need to share Marx’s view that the system should be dismantled to recognize that there’s value in learning from his understanding of our economy. In fact to thrive or survive you need to understand your environment.

Marx was at least an economist, but we can look further afield to find interesting thinkers and to learn from them – not just about financial success, but about success in life. Social media has turned some of these guys into minor meme stars, their thought chopped into easily digested morsels and shared across Facebook or Twitter with a nice graphic attached. Why not indeed? Wisdom endures and wisdom sells.

Straight out of Ancient China

Let’s take a look at just one example, some of whose thoughts could come straight out of the latest best-selling money-making guide.

“It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop,” he advises. In a phrase that could come right from the latest management book, he wrote, “When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals, adjust the action steps.” Those are from Confucius who died nearly 500 years before the birth of Christ. It’s interesting to note that Confucius remains a revered figure in modern China – a mega-growth economy still run by a communist party. In fact, the Chinese government are keen to promote the old boy and sponsor links with western academic institutions that promote not just Confucius but China as a whole; it’s the exercise of soft power. That you won’t find much mention of Mao is surely a good lesson in modern marketing.

A Whole World of Thought

Confucius is just one. Modern thinkers have found inspiration in the political double-dealing of Niccolò Machiavelli, business ideas in the war strategies of Sun Tzu or perhaps the gentler life lessons of the founder of Taoism, Lao Tzu.

Read widely, then, and remember that when you see some financial guru turn away from the specifics of the economy to the broader picture that you are almost certainly hearing someone else’s thoughts given a modern twist. You may find a clearer picture by going to the originals whether they worked in ancient China, fourth century BC Athens or Renaissance Florence. After all, why pay a middle man when you can go to the source.

The Worst Way To Get Rich

 
 


 
We’ve all heard that diversifying our portfolios and investing for the long term is the best way to achieve financial independence, and that other forms of investment are “risky.”  However, seeing how many people lost their money in the stock market and now can’t retire, we may want to rethink that position.

This audio book, “Rich Dad’s Who Took My Money” brought to you by Kiyosaki Mania presents a totally different way of looking at things.  If you do what the average person does, you’ll get what the average person gets.  Check out Rich Dad’s formula.  It is well worth your time.

What Is Your Time Worth?

What Is Your Time Worth

A while back, I wrote an article called The Rule of 72. In this article I explored how compound interest can make you (or the banks) very rich. One of the morals of the story (so to speak) was that instead of giving someone ELSE your money and letting them invest it, and give you back the crumbs, you can cut out the middle man, and make that money yourself. But… what about giving someone else your time?

Consider the following material.

How To Finance A Startup

Thinking about starting your own business? One of the most important things you need to think about is how you’re going to finance it. While there are a lot of sources for startup capital, you really need to think carefully about which direction you go in so that you can maintain control of as much of your company as possible.

Ways to Finance a Startup

Here’s a look at several specific ways to finance your startup business – no matter what industry you’re in.

  • Angel Investors – One of the best ways to finance your startup is to find what’s known as an Angel Investor. These are people who generally have a lot of money and like investing in opportunities (and people) they think are going to succeed.

  • Bank Loans – Another option is to go to a bank or another financial institution and apply for a small business loan. You’re going to most likely need collateral – and a good business plan you can share with them – but this is a way a lot of people get their business up and going.

  • Credit Cards – This is NOT recommended for financing your startup, but if you know you’re going to be cashflow positive quickly, it can be a way to make sure your bills are getting paid on time and nothing is shut off.

  • Government Grant – Depending on your personal history and a number of other factors, you may find out that you’re eligible for a government grant. The US government routinely gives out money – that doesn’t need to be paid back – in order to help people start their own business. Make sure you read all the fine print before you apply for a grant to make sure you’re eligible before you waste your time filling out the grant proposal or other paperwork necessary.

  • Crowdfunding – This is a relatively new option, but one that works for some people. Basically, you list your business idea online and ask normal, everyday people to donate as much money as they can. You typically set a goal of how much money you’re going to need and then try to convince people to help you out. The amount you can raise this way varies, but in most cases it should be enough to get you started.

As you can see by looking at the list above, there are quite a few ways you can raise money once the Bank of Mom and Dad closes and won’t give you any more money. Triple F financing is nice, but Friends, Family and Fools aren’t always going to be around to help you out. It’s much better to take some time and investigate the various options available to you for raising money to start your business.

Don’t Live Below Your Means

 
 


 

Two of the world’s toughest financial survivors share their stories and insights on adversity, respect, debt, keys to success, and more.

Although they’ve followed distinctly different paths to wealth, Robert Kiyosaki and Donald Trump share a common passion for raising financial literacy around the world.

Trump is the consummate deal-maker. Kiyosaki is the consummate educator. Each of these two financial titans has learned in his own way how to turn the lessons of success and failure into a better understanding of money and how it really works.

As friends and collaborators in life and business they’ve taken on a shared mission to teach others how to survive and thrive in tough times.

Personal Finance Literacy

  
  


 

Personal Finance Literacy

Our current educational system teaches a lot of things. But one of the things that it doesn’t teach is Financial Literacy. The result of this is that most people end up being slaves to jobs, banks and corporations. Maybe this is because of “neglect” or maybe it is a conspiracy.

In this piece, Robert Kiyosaki teaches the basics on assets, liabilities and cash flow that they will not teach you in school. He also speaks on how you can choose to be wealthy, greatly reduce your taxes, and why you should mind your own business!

For anyone interested you really should go and read Kiyosaki’s book, Rich Dad’s Increase Your Financial IQ: Get Smarter with Your Money
