Entrepreneurial Freedom Or Slavery

12 May

These days life is nuts!
Inflation goes up we pay,
Deflation kicks in we pay,
Or we are told we will and the sky is falling, falling!
What is an entrepreneur to do?!
Heck, what is a regular joe to do?!

There seems to be no way out. Its debt or excess taxes right?
You make more money by getting a second job and they tax the excrement out of you. And then come April you get hit again probably because you jumped a tax bracket. So frustrating! I know folks. I’ve been there. Heck, me and the wife live there- our income is too high versus our expenses. So Uncle Sam comes in at night and picks my pocket.

Now when it comes to the flip side of debt- we are being crushed as Americans. Not to smash the rest of the world but I live in America so I focus on my situation.
Now as I was saying, americans have now passed a trillion dollars collectively of educational debt alone. That’s money spent to make your position in life better. So you have this great plan to make money- but it is based on a foundational bedrock of debt.
By the way you can’t expel that debt.
So you have a higher income now. You are a doctor. Doctors when I was young had Benzes. These days they drive Toyota Prius’. Sorry but that’s disgusting. Saving the planet is admirable but what was the 225,000 in debt and 15 years of school for?
I want to be at the top and live at the top folks.
And doctors can’t say they will live there anymore. Payments and reimbursements are getting cut to pieces and Obamacare isn’t even in full effect yet. No slam on Obama there, but 30 million ppl added to the system means more checks cut from the same bundle.
I don’t even save aggressively folks- I cut debt as fast as I can afford to.

So what does the average joe do?

I say you choose a job or build your empire.
Life is too short to work for someone else for 40 years.

I remember when my Father’s boss shut down his shop. My father and his coworkers kept the place open and worked independently. They made Jewelry for Cartier, Tiffany’s, and private clientele. And for a few years it worked. The economics of jewelry changed and a lot of people were taking 50-60% less than my father charged as an artisan. The end result was he went to work for the hospital system. The union was good to him as were the benefits. But he had no freedom. And his income was limited. Dependable but limited.
He is about to retire now as he is turning 66. A good man and a great worker.
But did he milk the system?
No.
I don’t mean cheat- by no means do I mean to take advantage.
But he did not let his unique skill set earn him a grand living.

So I ask you who read my articles-
Is that what you want?

Seeing the freedom he had as an entrepreneur made an indelible mark on me. I always wanted to make my own money, be my own boss.
And now that I’m in my 30’s I see that life is either slavery or freedom. My day job is my master. I have to do what the boss says even if he is wrong.
Even if he is ignorant despite being certified and having numerous diplomas.
How do I stomach this?
I have a plan.
I mind my own business. When I punch out I’m all Tony. I’m making dollars or creating avenues to make income while I’m at my day job. And once I make the required dollar amount to retire my wife, I will throw a party.
Then, at that party, I will declare a new timeline to reach the next goal on a specified timeline to free myself as well.

To sum it up folks- build your business. No one will want more for you than you do.
Mlm, life insurance, commission sales-
I don’t care what you do- but do something!

That’s it folks. Not a lot of advice here but a real story from a real man who has worked from the age of 11 and wants not just the best for me, but the best for all of you as well.

Are you fighting for your independence?

5 Jul

Are you fighting for your independence?

Its independence day people. Today we celebrate our freedom and get a nifty day off from work to boot! Now I know a lot of people aren’t too excited. And most of those who are excited feel so simply because they got a day off from work. Nice.
However I have something more important on my mind and wanted to engage my readers with a few simple questions.

-Are you fighting for your independence?
Everyday, in every choice we make we either move closer to true freedom or put another limb in the proverbial shackle.
Let me explain. When we make workplace choices, or spending choices, or even simple choices as to what to read we place our freedom in jeopardy. You see there is a science to being free. A system of sorts and it requires dedication and hard work. And of course discipline. Wallace D Wattles wrote a book called the Science of getting Rich. I bought a copy and a coworker laughed. Now I won’t discuss the book now. What I will discuss is his laughter. You see he laughed at my choice of work but I saw it as research. The more you know about your goals and your end game the better you will achieve.
Also there is a mind set that has to exist. His mind set was -eh whatever money isn’t important.- My mind set was the more I know about the monetary vehicles and systems that control whole countries, the more I could achieve success in their realm. Remember people, money and finances are NOT everything but without a mastery of these concepts and systems you are little more than a new era slave.

-Do you have a plan of action that enables you to have a steady stream of residual income?
Without residual income you probably will work past 80. Sorry fact. My parents aren’t retiring till damn near 70. SSA administration has me set to retire after 67 and with budget crises and what have you I expect worse. Yes. The number will rise as we age people. The government and the average joe as well has kicked the can down the road for so long that we are already out of road and we are merely looping our current path to fiscal destruction. Sorry its true. Yet if I was wrong would you not still be better off if you simply created that residual income that will take you to the next big purchase- And beyond it?
Residual income is simply what it sounds like: income that keeps COMING and keeps GIVING.

-Do you have a plan to become independently wealthy this year?
Or a plan to get you there in the next two to three years minimum?
If you don’t, enjoy the shackles. Tuition, mortgage, health care- they can all take you down. Heck if you don’t have long term health care you are stuck in a mere few decades. I’ll even wager most of you haven’t heard of it, wanted it, or even thought of buying it. Let alone the few who have it set up. WE ALL need a plan to get ahead. How could you not want to be independently wealthy? Working for a cause is noble and a profession that gives back is amazing. I SALUTE that. But you have to want the big money. Why. Not the money. But the freedom that it provides. The leisure. The choices. Make a plan. Make decisions. Get thee people and start with planning it out on paper.

-Do you currently have the freedom to come and go as you please?
Amazing how we all have bosses and think we are in charge. Sorry if you need to schedule vacations et al and then they are pending approval- you’re stuck. And I’m sorry but its horrible. I’m currently employed by a boss. How or where is inconsequential. The sad truth is I love my job. Better yet I love the work. I give back. I’m fair. I’m honest and I give 110%. However my line of work has a time frame and as such I can’t pick up and go for a trip to Ipanema. I can’t run for any and every family emergency. I loathe that.
Do you? If not. Why? Get free people.

-Do you worry about college expenses for the kids? Daughters first wedding? Parents getting sick? A new recession?
These expenses are almost inevitable. Unless you’re an orphan, a jerk or plan to be child free forever and are sterile- hey, accidents happen. If you have any of these worries. Or inflation keeps you up at night its time to move past that. Financial freedom is the only way. You have to have a surplus. If you have x and your expenses are y you are stuck! Time to move forward people. Make a commitment to being free. These moments in life can be burdens or blessings. I want to be blessed to care for my family. I want to be there in the final moments and the high ones. I want to miss nothing. I don’t want tuition to dictate my kids choices. Are you with me?

Quick recap:
Mind set. You have to want independence and believe it is possible- and that YOU Will achieve it.
Learn more. The more you know the more you will gain. Remember G.I.Joe- knowing is half the battle.
Plan more. The more you plan the less you fail. Simple enough not to belabor it.
