Finding a Mentor Can Make You Rich

Follow those that have been where you want to go.

Finding a Mentor Can Make You Rich

Going it alone is the hardest way to become rich.  Finding a Mentor who has already been where you want to go is the best way to cut down years of frustration with little to no results and learn how it’s done better. Why not be teachable? You’ll be glad you did. It’s like hiking and using a well-known path, vs making your own. If you refuse to take the path and make your own, then it will be much harder. You’ll have to chop your way through bushes, trees, and weeds. Decide if you should climb over or go around boulders, and which direction to take each time you run into an unknown area. Following someone that has already been down the path you need to go is much easier. Just remember to follow someone that has actually been down that path and not someone that says he knows the way but has never traveled it.

For example, I know this well-meaning lady who is very obese. She was giving eating advice to someone that was already thinner and more in shape than her. What’s wrong with this picture? You get the idea by now, I’m sure. Only follow those that have been where you want to go. You’ll be glad you did. Humble pie may taste bad, but it’s very good for you in the long run.

In the rare cases where no one has been where you want to go, you’ll become what is known as a trailblazer. You’ll be the one making the way for the first time. You’ll become the leader once you have made a way, and show others how too. In life, we also need trailblazers. Just be sure you aren’t trying to reinvent the wheel. Be a trailblazer only when there is no one that has made it to where you want to be.  Many people (especially us men) like to try to do things “our way.” We don’t like to read the instructions. We already “know” how to do it. We are the expert, even when we are not. My dad used to call this “A know it all.” Someone who thinks they know it all, but doesn’t. Don’t be a “Know it all.”

So, when you find a Mentor, offer your services in how you can serve your Mentor and make sure that you are teachable. People love helping others that are teachable but don’t want to waste their time on those that are not.

Learning From Others Can Make You Rich

Learning From Others Can Make You Rich

Many people are of the opinion that learning stops when you graduate from school. The Rich know that graduating from school is just the beginning of learning. I’m not talking about learning for just head knowledge, or so you can answer questions to The Price is Right, but to apply what you learn to become and stay rich.

Any money you invest in yourself is the best investment you can make. Anytime you can improve who you are, makes you more valuable to the marketplace and grows you as an individual which creates a type of satisfaction you can’t get elsewhere.

Investing in books, CD’s, DVD’s, seminars, etc. are worth your time and your money. I’m going to list some books and courses here:

Reduce Your Chances of Getting Cancer

Reduce Your Chances of Getting Cancer

There is a 22% reduction in cancer risk in people with the highest levels of Vitamin D versus those with the lowest according to a new long-term study in BMJ.

Unfortuntually 42% of Americans are deficient in Vitamin D according to a 2011 study published in the journal Nutrition Research. Globally, an estimated 1 billion people don’t get adequate amounts of vitamin D.

What are some of the possible signs you are low on Vitamin D?

  • Your sweating more than usual. If you are in an environment that is not really hot, but you are sweating more than usual, this could be a sign.
  • You’re unexpectedly weak. (Even when you’ve had enough sleep).
  • You feel depressed. This especially rings true because of the seasons.
  • You have been feeling aches and pains for a few weeks.

If any of these signs continue, you can go to your doctor for a vitamin D test.

How to get more Vitamin D 

You could easily get all the vitamin D you need through sun exposure, but the American Academy of Dermatology strongly affirms that wearing an SPF of 30 or higher is crucial if you want to prevent the development of various skin cancers. Remember, your skin likely still takes in a bit of vitamin D even when you’re wearing SPF, says the National Institute of Health.

Healthy foods that have Vitamin D:

  • Wild caught salmon (3oz)
  • Sardines (3.5oz)
  • Tuna (3.5 oz)
  • Beef liver (Best if it’s been a grass-fed cow) (30z)
  • Eggs (Free-range) (41 IU per egg)
  • Shitake Mushrooms (1 cup)
  • Milk whole of otherwise (raw milk is the best form of milk to drink. 8oz).
  • Yogurt (Not the stuff that has sugar in it. Go for Greek Yogurt).
  • Non-sweetened Almond Milk (8 oz)
  • 1 slice cheese (again made from raw milk).

Here’s a great supplement called Super CAL Plus by Young Living that contains vitamin D along with some other key ingredients.

There are plenty of calcium supplements you can choose from, but Super Cal Plus was created to offer more than just calcium and minerals–it is a true bone-health supplement. With a synergistic blend of bioavailable calcium, magnesium, vitamins D and K, and other trace minerals, Super Cal Plus supports the structure, integrity, and density of bones and teeth. Plus, adequate calcium and vitamin D throughout life.

 

 

So, there you have it. Hopefully you’ll see the importance of having enough Vitamin D in your life, and if not, you now have some suggestions on how to get more into your body.

Please subscribe to my blog for more great blogs to come!

Creating Residual Income Can Make You Rich

Creating Residual Income Can Make You Rich

Whatever you do, do not discount residual income to make you rich. While you can make money in other ways and you should, building residual income as part of your strategy to become or stay rich is vital to your pocketbook.

Let’s start out by talking about people who are in sales who work for a commission:

With most sales, you sell a product and you get paid. Great! You sell a lot of products, you get paid more. Here’s the catch. Until you sell another product, you don’t get paid. You are out of a job basically until your next sale. A good model if you keep making a lot of sales. A dry bones model if you run into a dry period of no sales. No sales = starving! Not where anybody wants to be. Residual income avoids these dry spots.

Let’s talk about trading time for money either hourly or salary. In other words a Job. The majority of the population opts for this type of model of making money. You agree to work x amount of hours for x amount of pay. You get so much vacation and sick time usually and by using these vacation or sicks days you still get paid even when you are not working. Great! That is great until something happens where you can no longer trade your hours for money. This is no joke! It happens to the best income providers. I have a friend who has a nice home, nice cars, nice income of $100,000 a year. Everything was nice until he had a stroke that disabled him from being able to perform his job any longer. Of course, he used all his vacation time, sick time, and disability benefits before the well went dry. He also had some money saved up which he lived on comfortably for a few years…until that dried up too. Now he’s dependent on the State to take care of him and his wife’s part-time income. Not a good place to be at all, and could happen to any one of us at any time! (God forbid, but yes, a possibility). Another big drawback to this model of making money is once you die, so does your income. Granted, you won’t need any money in the afterlife, but what about your family you are leaving behind for the time being? Residual income doesn’t have to stop, even after sickness or death!

So, now that we covered the dark side of life, let’s look at the bright side. Residual income!

First, what is residual income?  First of all, what it’s not. It’s not passive income. Passive income is the idea that you kick back and don’t have to do anything at all for the income that continues to come in. Passive income is a fantasy. You must keep a look out at whatever income you have, even if it’s just certain times.

Now, what is residual income? Residual income is when you continue to get paid after the work is done. This includes royalties from books, movies, or songs and also income that comes from real estate or business investments where you don’t actually have to be present to earn it.

Bill Gates would be a good example of someone that has residual income. Not seeing yourself starting the next Microsoft? Don’t worry, there is hope.

Idea’s for Residual Income you can build for yourself:

The Network Marketing model is a possibility of building residual income for you and pass it on to your family. (Be sure before joining an NWM company they have the principle of passing on your business on to your spouse before joining).  I’d suggest one that has been in business for more than 2o years and is still growing rapidly. * Young Living Essential oils are such a company. 21 years in business shows their stability and just recently reached the 1 Billion mark, which means the company is growing and not stagnant.

Write a book and promote it: Granted during the promotion stage you are still “working”, but once it catches fire, enjoy your residual income, possibly for life!

Make a movie. Nowadays you don’t need to be a big movie studio to make your own movie. If it catches on (such as The Secret by Rhonda Byrne) then get ready for some good residual income.

Make a song or songs. If you are a great singer or musician you could hit it big by getting an Album to sign you. Most of us though sadly enough are not that talented. But if you are, go for your dreams and be sure in your contract is royalties that will be paid to you.

Real Estate Rentals: In my opinion, there’s a right way and a wrong way to own Real Estate Rentals and that is not to be an active manager. In other words, you build into your rent, the expenses of maintenance done by a management company. Let them handle repairs, collecting the rent, etc for a percentage of the profits. This way, you can create a large rental empire of your own. A bit hard to manage past 20 rentals on your own, so you might as well start it out the right way and build your empire for lasting residual income. Just keep an eye on what’s going on and make your the company or companies you have handling your properties are doing their job. If not, fire them and get someone that will.

Real Estate through REIT’s: You can invest in a publicly traded REIT, which is listed on a major stock exchange, by purchasing shares through a broker or there are some private REIT’s you can get involved with also. I myself am not a fan of REIT’s because there is no hard asset that you can keep as your own, but I have known people that have done well with REIT’s.

Stocks through the Company you work for: While I downplay the model of having a job, there is one advantage if you work for a large corporation that offers a Stock Purchase Program and you feel the company you work for will be a good investment, this would an excellent way to buy stock of a company usually at a good discount for 5-20% off the average going market rate. So the value of the stock would have to go down that much before you even lost any money. Plus if that stock pays a dividend, even better!

Stocks and Bonds:  During certain cycles of the economy either Stocks or Bonds could create a residual income either by earnings being paid out, and or dividends. I’m more of a fan of dividends than growth, as growth can be fickle, but if the Company has a long-standing of paying dividends for decades, then that would be a better investment in my opinion to create a steady residual income. Of course, growth and dividends are optimal.

Inventions that you sell that include in the contract royalties: If you have a patented idea that you want to sell, you could sell it outright, or even better, sell it with the contract of royalties. You could lease it out with noninclusive rights to many individuals and or companies with a royalty stipulation. (See your Attorney for details).

(1)Fixed Indexed Annuity (FIA) through a ROTH IRA: An upside with no downside. You make money when the market is up and when it’s down, you lose no money at all. It offers the potential for higher annual returns than other safe money solutions such as CDs or bonds. It provides a 100% guarantee of your principal- you can’t lose money. Your deposits remain in your control and you aren’t giving up access to your cash. The growth is tax-deferred and compounds annually. It provides income insurance, or a guaranteed income for life when you select an optional income rider. If it’s done through a ROTH IRA there is no taxes when you withdraw your money at 59 1/2 and no taxes on the income either with done through a ROTH IRA.

There are thousands of annuity products with a wide range of income payouts. Go to www.LifetimeIncome.com for more information.

These are just some ideas to get you started down the residual income lifestyle.

Multiple Streams of Income Can Make You Very Rich

Photo by Todd Diemer on Unsplash

Multiple Streams of Income Can Make You Very Rich

The majority of people find one thing to make money at, and they stick with that one thing and never branch out to other sources of income. Maybe they feel they don’t have time. Or maybe the drive isn’t there.  For people that are rich though, multiple sources of income is a normal thing to do.  I remember reading about the founder of Comcast Cable, Ralph Roberts. He had a stream of income that he kept called Muzic which was a company that pipped in music into lobbies and elevators and the such that you hear when you go into offices and Department stores. It brought him in a good stream of income month in and month out. He kept it years after he founded Comcast. He did finally sell it to have the capital to acquire other cable operators. He stated in his book that he hated to sell it, but knew he had to expand Comcast.   Richard Branson founder of Virgin who is worth 5 Billion controls more than 400 businesses!  Let’s list some more:

Bill Gates: Worth 93.4 Billion. While he only owns shares of Microsoft, Microsoft had done some great mergers and acquisitions and the major ones would be Skype, LinkedIn, Nokia.

Donald Trump: Worth 3.1 Billion Has approximately 500 business. Some of the less known ones are Success by Trump. Trump Success eau de toilette spray is a male fragrance sold by Macy’s Inc. Trump Productions LLC.  Sentient Jets, LLC (Trump Jets LLC).  Also known as Trump Jets, Sentient Jet works with an elite group of independent private jet operators to offer private flights to its clients.

Jeff Bezos: 138.8 Billion. Besides for well known Amazon, he also owns The Washington Post. Bezos is the founder of Blue Origin, a rocket company that could start offering trips for paying customers to space by 2018.

Jack Ma 42.8 Billion is the founder of Alibaba. Alibaba owns 10 businesses.

David Koch 48 Billion. Shares majority control of Koch Industries, U.S’s second largest private firm, with his brother Charles. Koch Industries, which has revenues of $100 billion, operates pipelines, produces fertilizer and makes Dixie cups and Quilted Northern toilet paper.

Well, this is kind of fun, isn’t it? Let’s look at some people who are deceased and see what type of multiple income streams they had while living:

William R. Grace: He organized the shipping firm of W.R. Grace & Co. in New York, serving ports on three continents and in the process winning a substantial portion of the U.S.–South American trade.

Grace was the main arms supplier to Peru before and during its unsuccessful war with Chile in 1879–83, and after the war, he assumed the country’s staggering war debt. In return, his company received huge concessions from Peru in the form of silver mines, oil and mineral deposits, and guano deposits. His business exploits in the country earned him the moniker “Pirate of Peru.” Grace also invested extensively in commodities and real estate in Peru and Chile and had numerous other business interests both in the United States and abroad. In 1892 he established the first direct steamship service between New York and Peru.

Grace was a major contributor to the Irish famine relief effort in 1880. He became interested in politics and was twice elected mayor of New York, in 1880 and 1884. His advocacy of a shipping canal through Central America met with success with the start of American-led construction of the Panama Canalin 1904.

Thomas Edison He had more businesses than I can count. Here is a listing of them.

John D. Rockefeller Founder of Standard Oil. Desiring to make every financial gain from the business, Rockefeller eliminated middlemen such as purchasing agents and wholesalers. He began manufacturing the barrels needed to store the company’s oil. Rockefeller also developed plants that produced petroleum by-products like petroleum jelly, machine lubricants, chemical cleaners, and paraffin wax.

As we can see part of multiple income streams is the result of diversification. An important strategy practiced by many Billionaires to safeguard their wealth in case one stream of income goes dry, there are others still flowing.

What multiple streams of income have you created? Please leave a comment below and let us know.

Investing in Assets or Other Companies (i.e stocks, bonds, etc.) Can Make You Rich

Investing in Assets or Other Companies (i.e stocks, bonds, etc.) Can Make You Rich

It’s not about not having to work anymore. It’s about being able to do what you want to do when you want to do it, and how you want to do it. It’s about freedom!

Assets such as Real Estate. I feel that duplex to quadplex rentals are a great place to start.

Other hard assets can be gold or silver, but I believe both to be controlled by the big boys. Even so, though, having some gold and silver on hand is always a safe bet to have.

Appreciating assets such as Antiques, Art collections, and certain automobiles.

Paper Assets being the riskiest but also the most lucrative. I’d suggest only those that pay dividends, so even if their stock goes down, you’re still making money as you continue to hold on to the stock.

Your goal is to have enough assets to create an income flow of equal or greater than your job or business income.  When you have done that, you have broken out of the Rat Race! Congratulations!

I can almost hear you say “What if I make a mistake and lose money?” YES! That is what it will take, to become rich! Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. You’ll learn from them. It’s the only way. 

 

 

 

 

When should you start investing? ASAP. The earlier you start, the more time you’ll have to build up your income cash flow. Cash flow is king. Get started today!

Owning Your Own Business Can Make You Rich

Owning Your Own Business Can Make You Rich

When we go about our day, most of the time when we are outside our home to buy something, we don’t even think about the business itself. For example, we have a local grocery store called Weis. When I go in there, I’m there to buy what groceries we need and get out. I’m not usually thinking about who owns the store, and how much that person is profiting a year from selling groceries to the public. The same goes for Fast Food most of the time. If I’m going to KFC, I’m visiting a place of business. But normally, all I’m thinking about is which bucket am I ordering and what are my sides? Someone though owns that Franchise that I go to and is profiting from my purchase. Commerce is amazing, isn’t it? Let’s become more business-minded and start thinking about the type of business you can do to offer your services/products.

If you’re currently an employee working for someone, you as an employee are being taxed at the highest tax rate with very few tax deductions available to you unlike a business owner (even a part-time business owner) that has about twenty-eight legal tax deductions available to them! If you have a home office, parts of your electric, house gas, and sometimes insurance can be deducted. If you are only an employee, none of that is deductible. Car mileage, or the car itself, your cell phone if used for business purposes, 50% of your meals eaten out when talking to clients or prospective clients can be written off of your taxes, and so much more. Taxes are a huge part of being rich (or broke), and having a tax plan is vital.

So, start exploring what type of business would like to enjoy doing and be profitable? Online/offline, both.

Offering to the Marketplace Something of Value Can Make You Rich

Offering to the Marketplace Something of Value Can Make You Rich

Forget about “hitting it rich.” Because more than likely you will not hit it rich by luck. Life can be more than relying on luck or a good break. You have to make your own luck and good breaks. That’s the truth! And for you Christian folks, I have a word for you too. More than likely God is not going to lay in your lap a million dollars either. He will give you the strength to obtain riches the Bible says. He doesn’t say He’s the magic God of the Universe at your every whim.  So, stop praying for riches, and do like Solomon did and pray for wisdom instead. When you get wisdom, get understanding. Take action on it, and then watch things happen!

Also, let’s get rid of the entitlement mentality. The world does NOT owe you a living. If it were up to me, I’d get rid of all the Obama cell phones. Most of them don’t work worth half a darn anyhow. HAHAHAHA.

The truth is, if you expect to get rich, you have to offer something of value to someone. A lot of someones actually. The more people that buy your product and/or service, the more money you make. Simple, isn’t it? Well, at least the concept is.

Being Soberly Minded Can Help You Become Rich

Being Soberly Minded Can Help You Become Rich

Photo by Alexander Mils on Unsplash

I’ve met some very talented people in my life that were just wasting their talents because they were not soberly minded. They either drowned themselves in alcohol or some mind alternating drug of their choice. They were literally just burying their talents.

Other ways I’ve seen this done is through too much TV or eating too much junk food. I literally had a friend who would drink a full two-liter bottle of soda a day and eat all kinds of junk food such as different packaged cakes and then worry about dying.  Well. after quite a few years of this, that’s exactly what happened to him. He died at a young age of 57. So it’s not just drugs and alcohol that can cause a foggy mind, but anything in excess can also.

Let’s also talk about how we can let the past taint our present and future success. Just because you failed at something or something went wrong in the past, doesn’t mean it has to continue this way, and it doesn’t mean you wallow in your sorrow for years to come. You press forward, forgetting what lays behind and press towards your goal! Your past doesn’t have to equal your future. No matter what it was, you got a divorce, you went broke because of bad choices, you got in a car accident. Learn what you can from it, and move on. Put it behind you. Life is too short to keep thinking of what was. Move forward to what will be according to what you really want!

Let’s talk about one more thing. The fear of getting rich. Yeah, I know. It seems weird, but there are people who think having a lot of money is somehow wrong. Having a lot of money, so long as it’s honestly earned is not wrong. Money is very useful. If you don’t believe me, try living without it for a while and see for yourself. When you have more than enough, you can do things with your money that you couldn’t do otherwise. You can build hospitals, you can give to charities, you can help others. There’s so much good you can do with money. Building a large enough income where you don’t have to worry about money any longer is key to living an abundant life not only for yourself but for all those you help also.  The more money you have, the more good you can do. We have become a slave to debt and money. Money has become our god without even realizing it. We have it backward. It’s not wanting enough money that is the sin, it’s not having enough is the sin.

Stop, think it over. And take a step forward in the direction you want to go; starting today.

Selling Legal Things or Ideas and or Services Can Make You Rich

Photo by Clever Visuals on Unsplash

Selling Legal Things or Ideas Can Make You Rich

Today we are living in the “Information age.” If you are not selling information or things, you are missing the tram!

New things and new ideas are like Country songs, there is always something new to sing about.

I decided on the light bulb for this blog post because Thomas Edison knew how to invent things and put it out on the market to sell. He had hundreds of employees working for him on different inventions and manufacturing his inventions.

This is me in front of Edison Park. This is where Thomas Edison worked at either improving upon an invention that was already being used or creating an entirely new invention to put into the marketplace for profit.

The good news is, with today’s ability for just about anyone to use a computer and get online, you don’t have to be an Edison to become rich in selling things or idea’s for a profit.

At one time in factories (not sure if they do it any longer), you had a clock and a card. You punched the card in to show what time you started work, and when you finished work, you punched the time card out.  This is how your employer knew what hours to pay you for your time working. Edison is the one that invented it. Now, this is curious. Look at the quote that was placed near the time clock.  It reads “There is no expedient to which a man will not go to avoid the labor of thinking.” (Originally by  Joshua Reynolds ) I believe this was intentionally put by this time punch card clock as a hint for the working man. Do you understand what the hint here is to you?

 

Time Punch Card Clock

 

Today’s time in most places in the USA is kept track of electronically. Although I noticed as of recent as thirteen years ago, a manufacturer that I worked for, for four hours before realizing that this was a waste of my time, had a time punch card system.

It is much more profitable to think with your brain than get paid for physical labor.  And even more profitable to take your idea’s or products and sell them to the marketplace. What could you improve upon, or invent that hasn’t been yet? The possibilities are endless! Why just this morning, I saw a video of a machine that pulls weeds on a farm with a 95% success rate. The challenge, of course, is not only thinking of an invention but building a prototype, getting it patented, and having enough funds to market it. The other option would be to sell your patient to an investor.

There are other possibilities besides creating something new, and that is to help someone market what has already been created. To name a few:

Affiliate Marketing: Clickbank is a database that has thousands of vendors looking to pay commissions to Affiliates that will agree to market their product(s). To learn more about ClickBank Click Here

Multi-Level Marketing: Create a residual income with a large team of people. There are thousands of companies now that use Multi-level marketing as their platform to sell their products and services. I myself am a huge fan of Young Living Essential Oils. But if that company isn’t to your liking, there are plenty more to choose from.

Ebay: Buy and sell stuff here for a profit. Many people go to Estate sales and the such to buy things at a deep discount and resell them on Ebay. Others will drop ship items from the manufacturer to the end user.   https://www.ebay.com/  

Flip Domains: Find something or someone that is about to go viral and create the domain and either sell it to someone that will resell it or sell it to the person or entity yourself.
