Make Money in a Better Way

It Doesn’t Need to Have Money to Make Money

We know that many successful people dropped out of school without getting a degree or never went to college. General Electric founder Thomas Edison, Ford Motor Co Founder Henry Ford, Microsoft founder Bill Gates, CNN founder Ted Turner, Dell computer founder Michael Dell, Apple Computer Company founder Steve Jobs, Polo’s founder Ralph Lauren did so. Higher education is important in traditional professions, but for these men it wasn’t important in accessing great wealth since they started their own business.

So, What Do You Need?

If money isn’t needed to make money and schools don’t teach how to achieve financial freedom, then what is needed?

It is necessary to dream, to be determined, the desire to learn quickly, the ability to use God’s blessings, and to know how to earn income.

Which Way Do You Make Your Income?

Different ways of earning income.

An employee earns money by getting a job, working for someone else or working for a company. A self-employed person earns money by working for himself. An employer has set up a business that generates income. An investor earns money from the various investments she makes.

There are different ways to generate income. It requires different mindset, different technical skills, different learning path and different people. Different people find themselves closer to different areas.

Although money is the same everywhere, the way it is earned can be very different. Think of the different qualities required in all four ways and ask yourself which way you get the most of your income.

Each one is very different. Earning income from different segments requires different skills and different personalities, even if the person in each segment is the same. Switching from one method to another is like playing golf or tennis in the morning and going dancing at night.

You Can Earn Income in These Four Ways

Most of us have the potential to generate income in all four ways. Which one we choose has nothing to do with what we are taught at school. It is more related to our values, strength, weaknesses and interests. What kind of person we are determines how we will earn our income.

Whatever we do professionally, it is possible to earn income in these four ways. For example, suppose a doctor chooses to earn income as an employee. He can work in a hospital or a public institution. He can even become a military doctor or become a permanent doctor of one of the insurance companies.

The same man can also open a clinic and work as a self-employed. He can also choose to be an employer. He hires other doctors. He doesn’t have to work in his own polyclinic, then he can employ a administrator. If this doctor does not necessarily want to have a job in the field of health, he can also establish a company operating in a completely different sector. 

He can also invest in other people’s business or other investment instruments such as stocks, bonds and real estate.

Different Methods of Generating a Source of Income

The way we earn income depends on our character. Some prefer to work for someone else, some hate it. Some people like to own a company but also like to run that company. While some people like to invest, others avoid it by citing the risk of losing money. Most of these attitudes can be found in us.

You Can Become Rich or Poor in All Four Ways

There is no clear relationship between these methods and wealth or poverty. Earning millions or being broke is up to the person himself. Choosing one way or another is not a guarantee of financial success, and no one can give you any advice.

These Methods Are Not Equal

Knowing the different features of each method is useful in understanding which one or which ones are more suitable for us.

Let’s say I choose to earn my income primarily as an employer and investor. Because I would like to take advantage of tax benefits. Legal tax privileges for groups at the top of the table are limited. On the other hand, there are plenty of loopholes regarding tax that can be used by those below in the table. If I get my income as an employer and investor, I can earn much more money in a shorter time and I will not pay high tax.

Money Supports Life

I believe it is absurd to spend a lifetime working to earn money and pretending that money is not important. Life is worth more than money. On the other hand, money is also important in terms of supporting life. We must learn to make money without working long hours. That’s when we get plenty of time to do other things.

If you take a closer look at this simple table, you will see that it contains not only different views of the world, but also very different worlds.

Neither is better than the other. Each of them has strengths and weaknesses.

Some of us can walk more than one path, maybe even all of the paths. We are all different individuals, remember, one method is not better or more important than the other. In every village, town and city of the world, all kinds of professionals are needed in order to balance the financial stability of the society.

On the one hand, our interests change as we grow older and our experience increases. For example, many young people who have just graduated from school are elated when they find a job. However, after a year or two, few find that they are not interested in rising up the corporate hierarchy or are not interested in their business. These changes that come with age and experience cause one to seek new ways to grow, challenge, achieve financial reward and achieve personal happiness…

Why You Need to Increase Your Financial IQ

The average American today works for six months to pay taxes. This is a very long time. The more one work, the more she pays the government.

In this article, we’ll take a look at how taxes work in favor of corporations and the rich, and then discuss the power and advantages of corporations.

When the poor and middle class try to punish the rich, the rich do not bow down and react. Because they have money, power, and are determined to change things. They don’t just sit around and agree to pay taxes. They look for ways to reduce their tax burden, recruit skilled lawyers and accountants and persuade politicians to change laws and create legal loopholes. They have the opportunity to change the rules.

For example, the US tax law provides some possibilities to avoid paying taxes. Many people cannot access these opportunities because they are busy with their own work. These legal loopholes are details only the rich can see. For example, “1031” means the section numbered 1031 of the State Revenue Law. It allows the seller to delay tax on real estate sold to be exchanged for a more expensive property for the purpose of capital increase.

Real estate can offer great tax benefits. If you are not selling for disposal, you will not pay tax on your earnings as long as you trade them to increase their value. People who do not take advantage of the tax savings made possible by law miss the opportunity to grow their assets.

A high Financial IQ is required to be aware of and benefit from these opportunities. And raising Financial IQ only takes four areas of expertise:

  1. Accounting. We can also call this financial knowledge. This skill is a must to build an empire. The more money one takes the responsibility, the more careful one has to be. Otherwise everything will be ruined. Details matter. Financial knowledge is reading and understanding bank statements. This skill allows to identify the strengths and weaknesses of any organization.
  2. Investment. The science of making money. Strategies and equations are important for making the right investments. This skill is linked to creative intelligence.
  3. Understanding Markets. It requires knowledge of supply and demand. It is necessary to know the “technical” aspects of the markets. Whether an investment is right or not depends on current market conditions.
  4. Laws. A company with technical skills related to accounting, investment and the market grows rapidly. But a person who knows the tax law and is under a corporate shield can get rich much faster than someone working for someone else or just someone who owns a small business. This is like the difference between walking and getting on a plane. The difference is huge when it comes to long-term wealth.

Employees earn and pay taxes, and live with the rest. The company earns and spends money and pays taxes on the remaining amount. This is one of the biggest legal tax loopholes benefited by the rich.

This is easy to do if you have investments that generate good cash flow. For example, you can turn your vacation trips into board meetings in Hawaii. Automobile payments, insurance, repair expenses turn into company expenses. You can show your sports club membership fee as company expense. You can add most of the restaurant expenses to company expenses. There are many more advantages like this, but they should be done before paying tax.

The rich hide most of their wealth. They use companies or foundations to protect their assets from creditors. When someone sues a wealthy person, they face a legal protection shield, and often that wealthy person “has no property”. The rich keep control of everything, but they have no property. The poor and middle class try to own everything and lose them to either the state or other people.

In short, if you have legal assets, find out as soon as possible the benefits and protection shield a company can offer you. You will find many books written on the subject. Even if you look at the company establishment stages, you will get detailed information on this subject. The power of sole proprietorships is well described in Napoleon Hill’s book Think and Grow Rich.

Financial IQ is actually a synergy of many skills and abilities. But I think the combination of the four technical skills I listed above forms the basis of financial intelligence. If you have a desire to make a great fortune, then the combination of these skills becomes even more important.

As part of your overall financial strategy, my suggestion is to have your own company equipped with assets.

The Difference Between Your Work and Your Business

The education system focuses on finding good jobs for young people by developing their knowledge-based skills. It shapes the lives around the salaries. After young people develop their interest-based skills, they move up the stages of education to improve their professional abilities. They are trained to be engineers, scientists, cooks, police officers, doctors, artists, writers etc. The skills they acquire allow them to join the workforce to earn money.

If you study cooking, you will become a chef. If you study law, you will become a lawyer, if you study medicine, you will become a doctor. The misconception of working in the same branch is that people forget to look after their own business. They spend their lives working in someone else’s job and making that person rich.

There is a big distinction between your job and your business. Everyone should have their own business.

To be financially secure, one has to look after his own business. Unlike your income column, your business revolves around your active column. As mentioned earlier, the first rule is to know the difference between active and passive and have active funds. While everyone cares about their income accounts, the rich pay their attention to their active column.

That’s why we hear them all too often: “I need time.”, “Oh, if I were promoted…”, “I need to work overtime.”, “Maybe I’ll get a second job.”, “I’ll quit for up to two weeks. I found a higher paid job. ”…

These ideas still related to the income column. A person provide financial security only if she uses her additional money to acquire income generating assets.

The main reason why the poor and the majority of the middle class are financially conservative and do not want to take any risks is that they do not have financial knowledge. They have to stick to their jobs. They tend to take firm steps.

For this reason, people with low income put themselves in serious financial difficulties. They sell their assets to avoid cash shortages. They start by selling their personal possessions, but the money they get in return is lower than what is written on their personal balance sheet. If they make a profit, then they pay the tax. Thus, the state gets its share of the earnings, which reduces the amount that will save them from debt. That is why the person’s net profit may be ‘lower’ than he thinks.

Start your own business. Keep working full time, but also avoid passives or personal items that lose their true value when you bring them home. Buy real active assets. A new car loses 25 percent of the price you pay as soon as you start driving. Even if your banker says your car is your number one asset, the car is not a correct asset. A trendy $ 400 basketball shoe equates to $ 150 at the first game.

Adults need to keep their spending low, decrease their passives and patiently create active funds. Parents should teach adolescents the difference between active and passive. Before teens leave home, get married, buy a home, have children, and buy everything on credit, they must begin to have active funds. Such as stocks, bonds, income generating real estates or copyrights from intellectual works like music, writings, patents and anything else that has value, generates income, or is ready to market and increases its value…
