People will often ask me where the title of my book came from. Also, my website and my podcast have the same name; Wealth On Any Income. I guess you could say I keep things simple because I’m simple. I can explain how I got the title easily, and it will take only a few minutes to read because there is more to offer than just how I got to that title.
You may need to look at wealth in a new way. I want you to see that it is available to YOU, and it’s never too late to start. It doesn’t matter if you are 24, 44, or 74.
Here is how I arrived at the title for my first book, Wealth On Any Income:
After my second divorce, I was providing business coaching to financial planning and accounting firms and only earning $5000 per month. From that income, I was paying myself the first $500 per month. A powerful concept I talk about often.
While it took me three years to save $18,000, I put it all into the purchase of a three-unit building with my third, final, and best wife and a Realtor.
Within 6 years that purchase alone created a half-a-million-dollar profit for the three of us.
With three of us, I borrowed more money to make down payments on more apartment buildings as partners and within 8 years I had a multi-million dollar net worth. This is all based on my earning $5000 per month and saving $500 per month.
If $500 per month can convert me from a kid that failed high school math to a multi-millionaire just by copying what other wealthy people do, then you can do the same.
So I figure that Wealth On Any Income is an appropriate title when $500 per month can create millions.
One of the first things I need to tell you is that you should NOT FEAR becoming wealthy, as though that might make you a bad person.
Here is my favorite quote on wealth, and it comes from Warren Buffet:
Of the billionaires I have known, money just brings out the basic traits in them.
If they were jerks before they had money, they are simply jerks with a billion dollars.
At the end of many of my musings, like this one, I will ask you a question that hopefully will lead you to action, or at least thinking in a new way. These are questions that give you an opportunity to grow your skills in handling money and move toward a place of wealth, abundance, and fulfilling relationships.
And here is your Opportunity to Grow: Purchase a copy of my book, Wealth On Any Income from my website, NOT Amazon, so 100% of the profits can be donated to the charity Shelter To Soldier. You will have both the exercises to overcome the emotional blocks you might be facing and you’ll learn the tips and techniques the wealthy use to become rich.
