My goal is to help bring more awareness to the stuff
we see in the news headlines every day (or more
importantly, the stuff we DON'T see) so that you can
understand it in a way that makes you more money.
Because as entrepreneurs, I believe the greatest
impact people like you and I can have is by accumulating
more resources (call it "money," call it a "list," call
it a "team," call it whatever you want) that we can
then use to further the causes we believe in.
We're living through an unprecedented time in history
and I'm just amazed to be a part of it.
In our flat world, global events have a very real
and massive impact on people like you and me and the
decisions we make about our future.
By switching to this topic for a little bit you may
gain greater insights into business... marketing...
psychology... nature... success... people (and possibly
yourself) than you have in all your previous years
A couple weeks ago I sent out a survey asking people
what other things they were interested in learning
Investing was right at the top of the list and it
couldn't come at a better time.
If you've read 'Rich Dad Poor Dad' by Robert Kiyosaki
you know that the model he teaches is to build a
business and to then take the profits from that
business and invest them so that you have both people
and money working for you.
So my goal was always to move from the 'S' (self
employed) quadrant where I was before, to the 'B'
(business) quadrant, and then to the 'I' (investor)
If you're like me though, you've probably always
found the 'I' quadrant to be very confusing and
-Daily headlines about the international currency wars
-Another $900 billion recently pumped into the economy
from the Federal Reserve...
-Real unemployment numbers in the US close to 20% (at
the peak of the great depression it was about 24%)...
-And the average baby boomer's portfolio having lost
30-40% of it's value after going through what was the
largest stock market crash in history (yes, bigger
...There has NEVER been a better time in history to
make the jump into both the 'B' and the 'I'
So what's going on with the economy anyway?
I thought Ben Bernanke said the recession was over and
we were officially on the road to recovery?
People are still buying Caribou and everyone's out
shopping today so what's the big deal?
Well, in my very humble opinion...
We haven't even seen the tip of the iceberg yet.
