Who is really in control of your financial future? You? Are you sure?
We are not talking about banks, the government, the economy or even the housing market here. You could put your financial future in their hands and just hold on for the ride but we all know that’s not smart. Those things are cyclical and always will be. They can make great excuses and scape goats when things go wrong but who is actually holding the reigns of your financial future in their hands?
It ought to be you. Though sometimes you think you are when you really aren’t.
If you aren’t active in real estate investing and more importantly investing in real estate the right way the odds are someone else it in control. Scary thought, right?
Many very intelligent individuals realize this early on. They start reading about real estate investing and wealth building, know they need to quit the 9-5, W2 enslavement and start on the right path, only to be swept away by distractions.
Many step up their ability to make a higher paycheck, reduce their taxes and even gain slightly more control over their own schedule by getting into commissioned sales jobs or starting small businesses.
Unfortunately being in sales, joining the masses doing affiliate marketing online for someone else, getting into network or MLM or buying a franchise does not really put you in full control of your financial future. Then individuals and maybe you too, get stuck here in the trading time for income stage, although it may feel like you have a little more freedom right now.
Here’s the test. Could you walk away from your computer, business, residence right now. This minute and take off around the world for the next 6 months without it affecting your income? We aren’t talking about in a month from now or if you can live on your savings for that long. Will your income continue uninterrupted?
No? Then you aren’t free.
Both buy and hold and flipping houses as real estate investing strategies can give you this level of freedom, while building up millions in wealth.
It is all about Systems, Automation, Scalability and making money work for you. Not working for your money.
