HardWorkIsHighlyOverated: Do You Want To Be Rich Or Just Not Broke

HardWorkIsHighlyOverated:  Do You Want To Be Rich Or Just Not Broke | TheBottomlineNow | Scoop.it

You know I have a few friends that it has occurred to me that really don't want no money.  They say they want some money but their actions don't say the same thing.  Actually their action say" I just don't want to be broke.  As a matter of fact, why don't you get rich and I'll become your consultant on how to spend your money."  Now they may fool you into believing they want some money because they are constantly telling folkes how hard they are working (be careful with this one because different people have different definitions of work.).  But the way I know that they really don't want no money is they are not willing to sacrifice whatever they feel is their comfort zone (their bills, their vices, their whatever, their job ect).

 

So to get rich you have to strive for huge risk to get huge returns.  The wealthy realize this, that's why they created a savings system to take those risk with your money from your labor (oh my bad , you weren't  aware of this).  Now there's nothing wrong with this strategy, what's wrong is that most people are not aware of this strategy.  So while many work very hard to accomplish something for themselves and their families, by them not being aware that this is a strategy they really only accumulate wealth for other to take advantage of opportunities hoping that the wealthy will be nice enough to share in the winnings (yeah right).  Folkes it don't work that way.  if the wealthy hit a lick (make money) usually the only ones who will be rewarded will be their inner circle.  But you always are welcome to put more money in their institutions while they wait on the next big thing with money from your labor( I wish I could get in a game where someone pays me for 30 years to rent my money.  The banking system, you see what I mean).  Also while you are supposedly earning interest on you money, quietly inflation, taxes and fees eat away at your principle (not good).

 

So now that you are aware, what's next?  Good question.  The answer focus and learn.  Entrprenuer be mindful of what is the most key term to an investor.  R.O.I. return of investment.  Basically how long will it take to get my money back and what will be my return.  Be mindful some wealthy people have no problem giving the financially unaware money, the financially unaware can't wait to put it back in the system.  If the investor can get his money back in a timely fashion and at a healthy return (most investor are real happy to see a 15% turnaround quartetly (every 3 months). Real happy.  Example: $10,000.00 @ R.O.I. of $1500.00 per quarter non taxible (That's $500.00.00 per month) and you handle the taxes, you are their best friend.  So be aware decide if you want to be rich or you just don't want to be broke.  Being rich will probably make you feel a whole lot better.  Remember "If you knew better you will do better."

TheBottomLines- ItsYourMoney- Sometimes if you're really smart you'll listen......

TheBottomLines- ItsYourMoney- Sometimes if you're really smart you'll listen...... | TheBottomlineNow | Scoop.it

Ok I'm gonna say it,Thorton Mellon is who I modeled my business philosophys after (#ThereItsOut).  I'm not a real stickler for structure ( as Mellon was not), I believed in a day to day today street mentality (as did Mellon),  I feel that sometimes the educated over think things to sound smart and overcharge you for them sounding smart. ( as did Mellon) and I like Bubbles ( as did Mellon).  I don't consider myself a writer or a blogger (as testament to my work here #Lsmh).  I'm not real big on punctuation or spelling (maybe I should be, hmmmm.).  I just let my fingers go where the keyboard feels #FRFR.

What I am good at although (as I've been told) is backwardly engineering products and services and making those products and services more market worthy( thank you Thorton for giving me that insight).  Entrepreneurs tend to feel like they're pretty smart guys and have a tendency to try and make being the bright equate to profitable (no profitable is profitable).  You see to be profitable with customers you have to quit trying to impress them with your "ObieWaness" and listen (#IRepeat), listen for the opportunity to provide your client with what's really they're solution.

The smartest thing anyone can do is listen.  When you do that then its easier to 1 hear the problem, 2.  recognize the opportunity, and 3. Create a strategy to answer the challenges, but this all starts with listening.

So thank you Thorton Mellon and pompous professor for showing me that sometimes, the smartest thing you can do is........LISTEN

That's TheBottomline
