Getting Started, Or Why Bother With Investing Anyway

It’s said that people spend more time planning their next vacation than planning for their investments and financial future.  When I was a financial consultant and licensed stockbroker, I often found this to be the case.

And hey, I get that.  A vacation is fun and in the near future.  So it’s easy to visualize.  And fun to think about.

Still, many people have this vague, uneasy feeling that they should know a bit more about investments, and they should be doing something about them – and soon.

But what?  What to do?

And why?  Why bother with investing?

I’ll tell you.  Because investing turns the tables around for you.  Instead of working for someone else, to increase their wealth, other people are now working for you … to increase your wealth.

They do this voluntarily.  Just like you go to work, voluntarily.  It’s like having your own business.

I think that has a nice ring to it, don’t you?.  So which side of the table do you want to sit on?

I’m thinking the investment side.

The wealthiest people in the world have done it by owning businesses and/or investing.  Most investing is really the same as owning a business.  You are, in fact, a true business owner.

We’ll get more into owning a business later on in this wealth building series.  But for now we’ll focus on investing.  Why?  Because investing is the easiest way to own a business.

Anyone can do this, can sit at the other side of the table.  Anyone can have people coming to work every day, working to increase their wealth.

The nice thing about this is you can do it at your own pace.  You can start if you have a little money to invest or a lot.

I’m going to explain all of this to you in easy to understand steps in this wealth building series.  We’re going to take it in small steps.  The greatest investors in the world started where you are right now, today.  And if you take the lessons to heart, you can become a good investor and increase your wealth.

So to summarize, the wealthiest people in the country have done so by owning a business and/or investing.  Investing is the same as owning a business.  And it’s the easiest way to own a business.  When you invest or own a business, you are sitting on the other side of the table, so people work to increase your wealth, instead of you working to increase someone else’s wealth.

And you can do this at your own pace.

So the first thing you need to do is resolve you are going to turn things around and start sliding gradually around to the other side of the table.  You are going to start investing and have other people work for you to increase your wealth.

Welcome to the world of investing, future business owner.

To your health and prosperity – John
