Happy Independence Day!
What does INDEPENDENCE mean to you? First thing that pops into Aunty’s mind is a scene from the movie “Independence Day” as Will Smith walks away from his burning jet plane after pulverizing an alien, then shrugs with a cocky lilt to his step. Heeeee yah!
Next to pop into mind is financial freedom.
What is financial freedom to you? What if money were no object because you had enough to do whatever it is you want to do – what would you do?
Aunty would make art, play in the garden, and create without having to cook, clean, or be bogged down with chores and responsibilities – except for eating and shopping.
How to get financial freedom? Many, many, many ways. All you need to do is to find the way or ways that will do it for you.
2 weeks ago (seems like eons), Aunty posted about NeriumAD and how excited she was – in tempo with the Pointer Sisters. The excitement is still there – Aunty truly believes this is the ride to independence, with investing as the end game. Sweet chickens!
No matter what you decide is your ride, a CD enclosed in the Nerium training materials entitled “Building Your Network Marketing Business” by Jim Rohn was SO full of wisdom and great stuff, Aunty just wants to share an insight with you.
Okay, no gagging or bailing out – because this is good stuff.
Profits are better than wages. This is the single most important and simple law of financial freedom, period. For Jim, this was a revelation (for Aunty too!)
Jim worked full time in his job, and then started part time in a business (in his case it was network marketing) to make a profit. His goal was to make as much in profit as he did in wages. This he achieved in less than 6 months. His second goal was to make twice as much in his part time profit venture as he did in wages. This he did in less than a year. It was a no-brainer after awhile to quit his job.
Wages make you a living, which is fine. Profits make you a fortune, which is super and finer.
How would it feel to get up in the morning and realize that you are starting off a new day to make your fortune versus realizing that you are starting off your day to go to work?
Aunty wishes each of you a fortunate and wonderful Independence Day and Life. Have a cigar (gag gag, cough cough) or kick some alien butt.
