Recently my husband Alan and I visited Fort Ticonderoga – the site of the first successful battle of the Revolutionary War.
This successful battle was accomplished without the firing of a single shot because the British soldiers were not expecting any visitors! They were caught sleeping (literally.)
Just the Facts….
We all will become a statistic. Will you be caught sleeping just like the British soldiers were at Fort Ticonderoga? Well, here are some statistics from the U.S. government. I’m just the messenger.
Of 100 people at age 65 . . .
•1 will be rich
•4 will be financially independent
•5 will be still working
•54 will be broke and dependent on family, church or state
•36 will be dead
What Price Will YOU Pay for YOUR Financial Freedom?
What is interesting is that I’ve been quoting these statistics since 1984. They never change. I have my own theory as to why these statistics never change. We all become the average of the five people we are around the most. When most of us have a great idea (anyone who has ever taken a shower HAS had a GREAT idea). Usually, we run that idea by the people we are closest to, right?
What do they say if we say we are going to start selling health and nutrition products, or jewelry, or makeup, etc.? They urge us not to waste our money. What do we know about building a business? What are we crazy? I call those people shovel people. You know them. You might be related to them. You might be married to one of them.
Every time you get what you think is a great idea, you run it by them. You expect support, a “Go for it”! Just when you least expect it, they hit you in the side of the head with a shovel. It doesn’t mean they don’t love you. It’s because they DO love you that they are trying to protect you. I won’t make any judgments here, but the people most of us ask opinions of are in the 95%. Why would we ask them their opinion? But, I digress…
Robert Kiyosaki’s Cash Flow Quadrant
Robert Kiyosaki is a very prolific writer. His “Cash Flow Quadrant” teaches about the four quadrants each of us fall into: the Employee and the Self Employed are on the left-side of the quadrant. The Business owner, and the Investor are on the right-side of the quadrant.
CLUE: The people on the right-side of the quadrant are financially free. The people on the left-side are NOT financially free.
Your Fairy Godmother
If your fairy godmother could grant you a wish, and if you could pick what quadrant you would like to be in; my guess is that most people would want to be in the “I” Quadrant-the Investment Quadrant where money works for you. Well, read what Mr. Kiyosaki recommends you do in order to get into that quadrant.
You’ll find his advice in “The Business of the 21st Century”. Spoiler Alert: It’s network marketing! Well, I wouldn’t wait for your fairy godmother – or Santa Claus, or the Easter Bunny or that matter either. Spoiler Alert: None of them are coming to the rescue. Are you ready to do something about your long-term financial freedom? If not now, when?
Call me, link up, tweet, email, etc., but get the facts about this industry. I’ll be conducting my generic network marketing workshop on Saturday, October 19, in Warwick, RI, from 10 AM – 1 PM.Details and registration information will follow next week. I’m passionate about this.
