You Are Here: Home » Wealth (Page 4)

Success is doing the things that you love to do, and not doing the things that you don’t want to do. For Aunty to have the lifestyle she wants (and Uncle for his lifestyle), we need cash flow, profits, distributions. Build your wealth so you can enjoy your life.

For Young People

If you are young and starting off, get a job that you enjoy and do your best at that job - you owe that to your employer.  It is not just that they owe you a paycheck.  You owe them your best effort to earn your pay. Learn about investing.  Learn from as many people as you can at first.  Just don't buy those super expensive programs or courses.  Lots of them start off with a lot of bull and hype and tell yo ...

For Uncles and Aunties

If you are older (fellow Aunties and Uncles), you probably did it the way we all assumed was the right way.  You scrimped and saved and bought your own home and have been paying very high mortgage payments for the past many years.  However, you are almost all paid off, and you have a lot of equity in your home, or it is already paid off and you feel really good about that, especially since your home has gre ...

Financing

The #1 response I hear that hold people back from investing is, "But I don't have any money!"  Robert Kiyosaki says money is a tool.  Can you agree with that?  If you can, then what would you do if you needed to do a job and you didn't have the right tools to accomplish that job?  You find a way to get it so you can do the job.  Same as money.  Find a way to get it (legally). We all have unique situations a ...

Find your Focus

I have read or tried a lot of excellent techniques on time management, setting goals, achieving greatness, etc.  I start off in one direction, then get side tracked and move in another direction, and many times at the end of the day/week/month, I haven't done much.  My problem was too much of everything. Having too many wants, passions, concerns, goals, techniques will pull you in too many directions and yo ...

Legal Entities

I take a LOT of classes, read a lot of books (audio books are fantastic and I sometimes pop them into my car while driving long distances), and learn as much as I can as well as I can in our quest to become financially free as risk free as possible.  Legal entities are a must.  You might never be a victim of a lawsuit or an IRS audit, but if you ever are, you will be glad you set up your business/investment ...

Mortgage acceleration payoff programs – some caveats

Do NOT waste $3000 on the Money Merge Account program from United First Financial to eliminate your mortgage in a few years.  It is cumbersome, time consuming, and limited.  All their hype about algorithms and such with the juggling of at least 2 accounts is easier achieved with chunk payments.  [This company has changed their name to "Worth Unlimited" - same players, same game.   Mahalo to Joe Taxpayer for ...

Get started on eBay!

One of the best teachers to stop me from buying stuff I really don't need (doodads) is selling those unused items on eBay.  Rarely will you get what you bought - though sometimes you get pleasantly surprised - a Louis Vuitton bag that was bought for $800 actually sold for $800 on eBay with heavy bidding at the end!  Most things we have laying around will sell, but not for retail. Here's how I sell - it's no ...

Mangoes and Lost Opportunity

We have a white pirie mango tree in our yard.  Our good friend Charin gave it to us as a sapling.  I waited for years for the little sapling to grow bigger and bigger, and one year it gave fruit!  It was delicious.  Juicy, sweet, smooth, ambrosia for the senses and tongue. Unfortunately for any of our plants, one of my interests is bonsai trees.  I love the look of spreading branches, controlled growth and ...

Chicken or Egg?

Here's a thought for you that can hopefully change your mindset about financial well being and action: Imagine your savings, home equity, retirement funds as being eggs.  If you have your funds in stocks or mutual funds sitting in accounts, they are also eggs.  As a matter of fact, people actually call these their nest egg!  When you need to draw out from these eggs, you will have to crack them or take a bi ...

On Commitment

This was passed out to all in attendance at the first Rich Woman seminar held here in Hawaii by Kim Kiyosaki. Kim is a wonderful inspiration - she has built up her own real estate empire, is the beloved wife of Robert, and is really really nice, and rich! Here it is: On Commitment "Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back. Always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative ...
