5 Things To Do Instead of College

College used to be the dream for getting ahead in life. But what was once a dream has turned into a nightmare for many people who have crippling debt from their college years. The reality is that college is not the investment it used to be and there are many other (and better) ways to be successful. In this post, I explore five alternatives to building a healthy and wealthy life that don’t require you to take out student loans or spend four years studying things you’ll never really use in real life.

Three Things That Will Lead You To Financial Ruin

That gap between the haves and have-nots is ever-widening in America and across the world. But this is what the ultra-rich have wanted and it’s not by accident. As my teacher and mentor Dr. R. Buckminster Fuller said in his book, “Grunch of Giants,” there is a Gross Universal Cash Heist happening. In this post, I break down three ways the rich take money from the poor…and how you can avoid them.

When I ask someone why they haven’t started the business they’re dreaming of, nine times out of ten the answer is, “I don’t have the money.” The reality is that while money is important, having it is not the most important thing when it comes to starting a business. What you need is a great plan, and this post is that plan. I walk you through eight steps on starting a business…even if you don’t have money.

Why 401(k)s and Mutual Funds Are the Path to Retirement Disaster

I’ve written for years about the coming retirement crisis. Many people think that if they invest in a 401k and mutual funds that will be enough for retirement, but unfortunately, it’s just not the case. In this post, learn why putting your money into these vehicles could be the worst thing you do for your retirement, and what you should do instead.

A Different Financial Education (in 17 Definitive Lessons)

I often get pigeon-holed as anti-education. I’m not. I’m anti useless-education. While schools have added “financial education” to their curriculums, the reality is our education systems do not teach kids how money works, or how to make it work for them. I’m asked what I would do if I were in charge of financial education in our schools, and this is my answer.

Rich Dad Scam #6: Your House is an Asset

Even more common than the “I need money to invest in real estate” myth, is the myth that your house is your greatest asset. I’ve said for years that your house is not an asset. In fact, it’s a liability. I’ve been lambasted for it by the so-called experts, but the reason I say it is very simple and irrefutable. Assets put money in your pocket, and your house does not. There is a way a house can be an asset, however, and if you’re wondering how, this is the post to read.

How to Wholesale Real Estate

I get a lot of questions around how to wholesale real estate, so I decided to write a definitive guide on getting started. Wholesaling allows you to put the leveraging power of a good deal to work for you to make money with little-to-nothing in a deal, no financing, and no repair work or landlord duties—all within weeks, not months. Sounds too good to be true? It’s not. Read on.
