How To Become Rich: Passive Income From Assets
Robert Kiyosaki, author of the famous book, Rich Dad Poor Dad says things like, "School is for losers" and "Jobs are for losers." It sounds harsh, but he does a pretty good job explaining how he has come to those conclusions.
He talks about how school prepares people to be employees and that school also tries to convince us that the answer to our problems is more education. Just go get an MBA or a PHD, or become a doctor or lawyer, but those paths don't work for most of us.
He says that school does nothing to prepare us for the real world and that a banker doesn't care what kind of grades we got or where we went to school. The banker only wants to see our financial statements of cash flow versus expenses, and assets versus liabilities, things that are not commonly taught in school.
He goes on to say that school teaches us to get a job, pay taxes, live frugally and invest for the opportunity to one day retire. He then explains that wealthy people know that student debt is the absolute worst and dumbest kind of debt to take on. Uncle Sam now generates the majority of its revenue from interest collected on student loans, which is why you cannot shake free of them through bankruptcy.
He tells us that wealthy people know to acquire assets that generate cashflow, with businesses being one of the best assets to own.
Owning businesses or pieces of businesses that generate cash flow is what enables life to get easier every year and these business investments can be totally independent of the stock market, so it's how the wealthy diversify their portfolios.
Owning assets that generate cash flow is the key to freedom and our educational system has made it so that the average person just doesn't understand that. If this is news to you, congrats! Perhaps you just started the next chapter of your life!
Education is also a key to freedom, but not traditional education. Traditional education has failed us because it has not kept up with societal or technological changes. The Internet has made "getting a job" a dumb decision for motivated people.
Want to know how to become rich? We need passive income from assets and must educate ourselves to be set free!
When we spend our time working for others, we are building up their assets and their cash flow and have nothing on our own balance sheet to show for our time and effort. We often invest an entire lifetime to find that we are totally dependent on someone else for our financial security.
The stock market is nearing the end of its amazingly long 10 year run higher. Depending on how you measure it, it has just become the longest bull market in history. Where do you think it goes from here? Ever heard the saying, "Buy low, sell high?" Mass selling and much lower stock prices are coming.
Tough times are certainly right around the corner for many. One of the best and smartest stock analysts I follow, Steve Sjuggerud says that he predicts the next decade to be below average or even negative returns.
What's your plan B? Is it your 401K? Or a pension?
How will you feel if you have made no money in your 401k 10 years from now? How might that affect your plans for retirement, or even vacations and time off?
Oh, and I forgot to mention that the bond and real estate markets are in historic bubble territory also. They too have been driven higher by artificially suppressed interest rates and historic money printing across the globe and you can't outfox economic mother nature forever. Eventually, there is reversion to the mean and the snap back to center that's coming has the makings of the most severe in recorded history.
Now is the time to educate yourself, not after tough economic times have arrived.
What kind of investment sounds better to you at this particular moment in space and time, investing at the top of the stock, bond, and real estate markets, or investing your spare time into building another source of income from the comfort of your computer?
Would you like to own a business that runs itself and is taxed much lower than your marginal tax rate, as passive income?
When tough economic times arrive, many of your friends and neighbors will lose their jobs. Can you imagine feeling secure at that time, knowing that you have taught yourself how to use the internet as a tool to support your family?
You are not alone. There is a community of people who are breaking free from the status quo and doing everything they can to be self-reliant and own online businesses that generate cash flow to 24/7/365.
Most people in this community set their businesses up in their spare time and are transitioning into total lifestyle freedom and online self-employment. They are taking their power back and finally creating their lives on purpose.
Join us! Protect yourself from the tough economic times that are coming. Protect yourself and your income from being reliant on someone else. Build assets that generate cash flow on your balance sheet. It would be my honor to guide you.
Our core value is this - we want to help anyone who has the courage to step out of the status quo (your financial security in the hands of an employer) and drive into creating life on their own terms. All you'll need is a working computer, a decent internet connection and the commitment to learn the skills that will set you free.
Most of our community members were working to build someone else's business and someone else's dreams, but decided that life is too short. We all had "a-ha" moments and decided to recreate our lives by starting online businesses in our spare time. We control our future and we'd love for you to join us.

Four Principles To Create Your Best Life
PRINCIPLE #1 KNOW YOUR VISION
Stuart talks about vision moments. My 'vision' moment happened while on vacation with my kids. I realized that we'd made very few memories as a family, because of health issues that have prevented me from doing much travel, and because my career has me working weekends.
My girls screamed with delight, as they touched snow for the very first time and like a light switch, I instantly realized that no job was worth missing my kids' childhood and making quality memories together. That's the vision that keeps me motivated. I'm putting the effort in now, so I have free time and extra money to make memories with my wife and kids for many years to come.
PRINCIPLE #2 INVEST IN YOURSELF
"Every day I make sure that in some capacity, I'm investing in myself. Unlike school, as a self-learner, you get to choose the areas you're enthusiastic about and you get to choose the people that you're learning from."
The most important investment I've ever made has been in me and my education, not a 401k. The SFM will show you how to use the internet as a tool to support yourself from any location. The return on your investment is the ability to earn income, no matter what the economy is doing. Unlike traditional education, you'll have passion for what you're learning!
PRINCIPLE #3 DO THE WORK
Find someone who has what you want and do what they did! I live by this principle in every aspect of my life. Find someone who’s willing to teach, who's been there and done what you'e looking to do, and follow their lead.
My top goal is lifestyle freedom and knowing that the internet makes that possible, I tried to build several online businesses early on, without a guide, and failed. Then I found the SFM. Their experience and coaching allowed me to avoid expensive mistakes and succeed the second time around. They've made me into a successful online entrepreneur!
PRINCIPLE #4 KNOW YOUR VALUES
If you don't know your values, then it's time to uncover and illuminate them. Then, everything else you do will be aligned with your values.
One of my main values is family. I decided to make a change and learn the skills necessary to be self-employed online, so that I'm always available to make memories with my wife and kids.
God, integrity, loyalty, having fun, and passion are a few other values I hold dear. What values drive your daily actions?
