It is very clear that there is a lot of insecurity out there today in our society so this post is about obtaining real security in an insecure world.
Many people don’t understand why the economy is not doing better and generating more jobs; many are fearful of the current government’s clear and stated determination to transform America; many corporate types who have jobs are frustrated with the long hours, low pay, lack of job satisfaction, and disappearing job security.
Overall, there are more than 100 Million individuals searching for a job, a new job, a second job, a part-time job, or their first full time (post college graduation) job however what is little known is that our economy is only able to generate about 2 Million jobs a year … and that is not likely to change in the foreseeable future. This job situation adds to the insecurity in our world.
For those that are working and generating income, many are having a life changing moment when they realize that they can not possibly pile up enough money or assets to achieve true security as there is always the real possibility of losing their job or asset confiscation … from our exponentially more expansive, powerful, and intrusive government here in the U.S.A.
In the secret world of wealth creation, the real security is in developing and maintaining a skill set that empowers you to make money at will, as needed, and as desired. It is the ability to understand the process and psychology of real wealth creation. It is the ability to break free of the work-money link by creating leverage and developing high-value production skills. This is how you obtain real security. As a result, entrepreneurial fever is picking up.
Many want to be entrepreneurial and get self employed however they have not yet developed the proper entrepreneurial mindset. They embark on ventures where they are self employed as a contractor providing their services. They are trading time for money and not in a leveraged situation; nor are they creating residual income. Some will pursue the franchise route; however a large amount of startup capital is frequently required and these opportunities usually involve brick and mortar retail locations with employees, inventory, and 12-15 hour days, 7 days a week.
One of the entrepreneurial secrets you learn in the secret world of wealth creation is to own a business where you do not trade time for money, or get anchored down to a franchise but learn how to trade what you know for money. You essentially learn how to create an information marketing business and monetize what you know or can learn.
Once you master this secret, you can, at will, materialize money from thin air. With your knowledge, skills, or expertise and a group of reachable people with known interests, you will be able to make money from the alchemy of ideas and the written word.
Another part of the Wealth Creation secret is to understand the connection between agility and security.
Many people think of security in physical terms like a paid for home or office building; a safe loaded with gold bricks; a lucrative stock portfolio; real estate; or a company of size and substance.
But the hazard and falsity of such things is constantly demonstrated to us if we pay attention to our surroundings and really understand what is going on around us in our world.
Homes, real estate, stocks, even gold can crash in value literally overnight. Gold has even once been confiscated by the American government. Wealth in bank accounts has recently been confiscated in both Greece and Cyprus; pension, or retirement, accounts have been recently confiscated in Poland and Argentina. So much of what seems solid, really stands on thin ice.
Being locked in place can often to lead to ruin. This is what happened several years ago when Borders Bookstores with long term leases for big brick and mortar locations found it could not compete against Amazon dot com.
Being able to be fluid and respond to changing conditions and consumer interests with technology and creativity can bring opportunity and huge benefit in the secret world of the information marketing business. This type of agility, being able to follow the money, brings real security.
For example, a friend of an associate of mine was a millionaire next door type with a good, solid, mid-to-high 6 figure income that he generated from a small business fabricating a variety of industrial parts. These parts were purchased by over 2,000 accounts located all over North America. In typical fashion, Chinese companies were encroaching and direct importing at much cheaper prices. As he faced financial disaster, he entered the secret world of wealth creation and learned how to setup an information marketing business. He started a newsletter that was all about buying from direct importers and ways to cut costs in industrial plants. In a few months, he converted 400 of his 2,000 accounts into $1,000 a year subscribers providing an income equaling the net income from his first business. He is adding a few more products based on his knowledge, skills, and expertise. He expects his income to double this year and approach $1 Million… and he runs his new business from an office in his home with a picture window looking out over the lake in the back of his house. This is an example of agility.
If you do not have this kind of agility, you do not have real security. Do not mislead yourself!
This kind of security is being pursued by people in businesses … businesses that are big and small; and businesses that span across all industries. These people are dead-broke carpet cleaners, burned out photographers, CPAs, Financial Planners, Real Estate Agents, and franchisees working hard to make their lives infinitely better by adding an information marketing component to their business and by following the principles of direct response marketing rather than prospecting and image building.
When you measure performance and results, it is clear that only one percent of all businesses can afford the cost of just brand marketing; 99 % of all businesses need to learn how and implement direct response marketing. If you don’t, your venture is just a hobby and not a business.
A key part of the wealth creation secret is to avoid the four evil temptations listed below, and think BIG!
The four evil temptations include:
Temptation 1 – avoid disqualifying yourself. There will be temptations to say to yourself … I have no ideas worthy of marketing; I can’t write; I am too old or too young; or … who would care about getting information from me? Unlike all other animals, humans have the gift of free will and intellectual capacity. And, this is all you need to be in this business in order to create your Big Life and provide benefits to others.
Temptation 2 - don’t wait for a better time. There will be temptations to say to yourself: I will wait for a better time; I will wait until the kids are off to college; I will wait until it will not be a stretch financially. Someday Island is a crowded place; and an unhappy place. Most people procrastinate away all their opportunity. They get on the treadmill of life and run in place until they die. There is no power to be had from waiting until later; there is only power in NOW!
Temptation 3 - avoid being fearful of discovering new opportunities. There will be temptations to underestimate the importance of discovery. You don’t know what you don’t know. You don’t know who you don’t know. In order to create a fortune-making, life-liberating, and security-creating lifestyle, you need to read books, take training courses, and go to seminars and events where you will discover ways to create your Big Life and meet people who can help you on your journey.
Temptation 4 - don’t be too smart to learn new things from people in the room. There will be temptations to say to yourself that you are so successful and so experienced, that you have seen and heard it all before. You will never create your Big Life or million or multi-million dollar business if you shrink your breadth and diversity of exposure and stay inside your small circle of peers. You must get out, expand your horizons, and network with many other people in order to learn new things. You must always be networking and be a student of life long learning.
And, as I said previously, you must think BIG!!
Develop the mindset that … Somebody wants to know what you know! Somebody will benefit from your experience!! Somebody will pay you for your ideas!!!
Create a persona where your knowledge and expertise can be put into a series of products and presentations where you will be larger than life; where you will be the personality on the stage that is driving over a billion dollars of sales in products and services.
Once you come into this secret world, and realize that you can make money materialize between the chemistry of ideas, the hypnotic affect of your written words, and your subtle yet attractive power of persuasion, you will have gone through the doors and entered the secret world where countless people have entered just being curious … and have emerged on the other side as millionaires. You will have learned how to not exchange time for money but how to exchange your knowledge and ideas … for money.
Once you have this life changing moment, you will have discovered the secret to wealth creation. You will vigorously pursue and develop the skills needed to provide real security as they will empower you to generate income and create wealth at will.
Here is one more example intended to inspire you to take action. During the Great Depression (kind of like now for some), George Haylings created booklets about odd and unusual moneymaking opportunities on a manual typewriter while living in a tent. He placed small ads in magazines and created a good income; and then a Very Big Life of his choosing. Do an online search for him to read more of his story about creating a blueprint for a recession-proof business.
If all of this is not enough to motivate you to become an entrepreneur, get self employed, and develop your own information marketing business, here is one more thing for you to think about.
Most people, even successful business people, live small lives. They live timid and unremarkable lives. They are lives of compromise and full of disappointment. They frequently are asking themselves … is this all there is? They live in places they do not love and fantasize about being somewhere else. They are bored and fatigued with their work. With an information marketing business, you can live and work anywhere. I personally know people in this business who live and work along the beaches of Costa Rica, Thailand, and Baja, Mexico; and there are those I know who live in the mountains of Utah and Montana. I personally plan to live half of the year along the beaches in Australia and the other half of the year where I am now … in the mountains of Colorado.
So … the best career tip I can provide is to learn how to become an entrepreneur, get self employed, and work anywhere. Be willing to live for a few years like most won’t … in order to live for the rest of your life, like most can’t. I spend my time helping others like me, corporate types and baby boomers retool their career, rebuild their life, and restore their financial success.
As more and more people, who are searching for a way to not only survive but thrive during these difficult times, awaken to opportunities they never knew existed … more and more people will go through the doors and enter the secret world of wealth creation.
