INVESTING MADE EASY

The key of making money in stocks is not to get scared out of them.

Peter Lynch

The hardest decision you can make is picking something to invest in, but this process can be simplified the more you invest.

Peter Lynch is one of the most iconic investors that simplified investing for average individuals, just by suggesting people to invest in the things they love and understand. Which begs the question why arent you investing in stocks today, and for those who are invested why arent you investing more.

Just start

Just to get this through your head, the hardest decision you can make is the decision to simply start investing. The more you procrastinate the more your missing out on passive returns, and the best way to learn how to invest is simply through experience.

So many entrepeuners will tell you the best way to learn a trade or a new skill is by trail and error (just hurry up and fail). The bigger the fail the better the outcome, remember after every failure ask yourself “why didn’t this work” or “what did I do wrong.” Asking these questions will help you over come the struggles of investing and come out a successful investor.

EQ

When your investing the second most difficult task is keeping your emotions in check. When I began investing the was a company that I had my eye on and I originally bought stock in this company was very innovative because of the their eco approach (how they helped the environment).

Well over the years I saw the stock go up and down, it was like a roller coaster ride. I couldn’t stomach the fact that I could loss everything so I got out.

That company was “Tesla”

If you believe in a company, all you need to do is to first study the background of the creator of the company. If I would of known that “Elon” first created “x.com” I would have realized that he was successful before Tesla.

Only knowing what you need to know helps build emotional intelligence.

So remember to hold on, no matter how risky the ride gets because your first decision is normally your best decision.

WHY DO PEOPLE GET LIFE INSURANCE ?

We’ve all have been approached by someone selling life insurance. Personally I have been approached by random guy at 12pm in a Waffle House selling life insurance, but what is the actual reason why some people purchase life insurance and should you purchase life insurance too?

Is life insurance a scam or real

Depending on which company, life insurance can be a scam, it’s almost like a legal “Ponzi Scheme“. Companies who sell life insurance use multi-level marketing, which means to be an employee you have to be a user of product and the only way to make money is to invite more people.

The real life insurance side works through the customers life span which means, when an individual purchases a policy someone else is cashing out. To be honest all life insurance companies are like this, but it doesn’t change the fact that life insurance is important.

What does it do

Why is life insurance important? Picking a policy is important because of the way our society is nowadays.

Individuals are simply not able to save for their retirement because of the debt that is made by them or their parents. Unfortunately, When you or your parents die they can either leave you with a legacy of wealth or debt, and in many cases its always debt.

Now what life insurance does is take your contributions and a portion of your money goes towards funeral cost, but that’s not all it covers and depending on your policy you can leave your kids with a lot of money.

So now you found out how to turn your kids into trust fund babies, congratulations.

Know before you own

Those few things you need to learn before getting a policy are:

What types of policies are out there ?

Which policy is the best for you ?

What does the insurance company get in return?

And I will be able to answer all these questions in my next post so stay tuned and keep reading.

HOW TO CREATE PASSIVE INCOME?

Passive income is not always easy to develop ínfima to you might lose money trying to create it. So in this post I want to show you how I currently make passive income and how you can start creating passive income for yourself.

Keep in mind it is not easy to create passive income with that in mind, what ever trade you want to go into, study first by reading books. This will reduce the risk in creating passive income.

STOCKS

Stocks can be one of the most passive investments, depending on how you invest. I prefer investing for the long run because slow and steady wins the race. So one of the main factors I like to see when I invest in stocks is dividends.

Dividends are company earnings that are annually distributed amongst shareholders.

Also in some cases dividends is handed out monthly, so make sure to really study your stocks by using www.sec.gov. From the SEC website you can search up company records, all you need to do is go to the search tab and type in “EDGAR SEARCH,” once land on that page type in the company’s name or ticker symbol.

HIGH YIELD SAVINGS ACCOUNT

High Yield accounts are easier to find but to make a significant amount from interest, you have to have over $10,000 in the account in my opinion. These account are made to give you higher returns compared to a regular savings account or bank account.

Remember this is less risky, when it comes to making passive income, so the returns are not really as big as stocks. What I suggest is to create an account just so you can have money ready to use for convenience but still have money working for you by paying you interest.

ROYALTY FEES

There are plenty of places to collect royalty fees, just to give you an example for “The Way I Save” one of the sites that the blog collects a royalty fee from is merchandise. Teespring is a good site to create graphics that can go on any product and if someone purchases your product you collect a royalty fee.

Now each product can give you more or less money the profit margin varies, but it’s fun and simple to set up. If you want to see an example on how it looks click over to the products page of “The Way I Save” located on the menu tab.

Goals For your Money

Many people create goals they want to accomplish at the beginning of each year. Some people accomplish these goals, others forget about the goals that they have set for themselves. The most successful people break down their goals into realistic task and give a time frame for the goal to be completed. If your new year resolution was to make more money this year, then you clicked on the best post for you.

In this post we’re going to break down your goal into making more money into realistic task but first lets be clear about the time frame. We want to complete this goal before the next year, so lets make this a 10 month goal.

TASK NUMBER 1

What are you passionate about and why? When you figure out what you are passionate about you will be willing to work more hours during the day. When you figure out why you are passionate about something it prevents you from getting burnt out or tired, and if you do get tired then its not a big enough “why.”

You don’t have to think too hard to realize what your passionate about because chances are you want to change peoples lives. So all you have to do is figure out what part of peoples lives you want to change. For example, I want to change the way people operate their personal finances so they can have financial freedom. The reason why I want to do this is because 80% of America is in debt and 55% of that debt is in credit cards.

So now that you know you want to impact peoples lives, and what part of their lives you want to impact, figure out how your going to impact them. Is it going to be through books, seminars, music, or a podcast.

TASK NUMBER 2

Supercharge your learning, when you find out what service your going to do, you need to learn more about the service (do not sell yourself short when it comes to the price of your service and do not overprice it.) You need to have a strategic method of learning too, so when you find the service you want to provide ask questions like how? Where? Why? and Who? Then learn the answers to each question. Start with the basics learn how to find the right people to partner with to eventually form a business, you need marketing, accounting, and specialist in the field.

TASK NUMBER 3

What ever money you have now, chances are your going to need more. So find things to flip, sell, or invest in that will give you enough cushion to start your business. I didn’t say it will be easy, but it is doable. Simple ideas to flip would be cars, shoes, or furniture.

I hope you enjoyed reading this post and I also hope it inspired you.

WHATS A BOND

Most people will not buy a bond, but after learning what a bond is and what it can do for you, your going to want to purchase some as soon as possible. As a investor you always want to diversify your investments, any 401k manager or financial advisor will tell you that. That is part of the reason why ten percent of your 401k generally includes bonds.

GENERALLY

In general, a bond is issued when a entity (company or government) needs funding for advancement or backed expenses. Just like a certificate of deposit, with a bond you can only redeem your investment at a specific time. Bonds can be redeemable anywhere from 1-30 years. These type of investments are normally considered low risk in comparison to stocks. Typically the interest you gain from bonds are enough to protect you from inflation.

TYPES OF BONDS

Treasury Bonds – Are issued by the government.

Corporate Bonds – Are issued by corporations for profit.

Agency Bonds – Are issued by federal agencies.

Municipal Bonds – Are issued by cities, states, and countries.

The best bond to invest in, is debatable, but what I prefer is municipal bonds. The reason why I prefer municipal bond is because municipal bonds, are generally exempt from state income tax in the state where the bond is issued. Also municipal bonds are generally moderate risk but can be high, which means this type of bond will give you a pretty good return.

Passive Income

Passive income is earnings derived from a rental property, limited partnership or other enterprise in which a person is not actively involved. As with active income, passive income is usually taxable. However, it is often treated differently by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Portfolio income is considered passive income by some analysts, so dividends and Interest would therefore be considered passive.

quoted by: http://www.investopedia.com

I have read, listened, and saw plenty of CPA’s, Real Estate agents, and Financial Advisors talk about passive income; but their are only a few to do while in college with limited funds (money).

The first one is my favorite which is a High Yield Savings account. So instead of getting a penny $0.01 a month for every $1000 dollars, you have your getting $2 a month that’s a huge difference. The reason why this is my favorite type of passive income is because I am able to invest at a very low risk which means I am less likely to loose my investment.

The Secondary way to create passive income is through Real Estate Pool Investing which gives you over 5% back in interest. Which is pretty cool considering that your only getting 0.09% from your current savings account with your ordinary bank. I currently made $22 from letting my money sit. I’ve been using a popular and reliable platform called, Fundrise. What Fundrise does is raise money for a specific Real Estate Property that gives you back and average of %5 back on what ever you decide to put in. The minimum amount to get started is only $500 and it’s pretty easy to setup.

The last passive income is the stocks market. The reason why I put the stock market as a passive income is because there is a slight trick to making the stock market passive now of course your not going to make as much as active people in the stock market you can still make a significant amount from dividends. Dividends is “money” the company gives the stock holder for per share. Sometimes they give it quarterly or monthly, the best dividend stock out there right now from the time writing this post is “PSEC.”

There many other ways to create passive income. Even some businesses can even be passive. Writing is one of the most passive incomes created, think about the only work you do is to write the book, publish, and promote. This is why many pastors and entrepreneurs write books, it’s an investment that accrues interest over time by promoting yourself.

What’s The Plan

Success can not happen with out dedication and most importantly goal setting. Writing down your personal goals is the easiest part of goal setting. The difficulty in goal setting is achieving your goals. So what’s the plan ?

top-view-of-business-plan-for-table-royalty-free-vector-plans-samples-124-software-writers-ideas-with-low-investment-in-india-books-2018-templates-672x726

Okay so what’s one of your goals ? Maybe you want to build your own business or retire at a young age. That’s great, but let’s take it one goal at a time. We all have big plans for ourselves but we don’t really do the work for setting goals to get there. If you are wanting to retire at a young age do you have a stock broker or investment account yet, if not go look for the best of the best rates and returns first then select your plan. This is just one step you can make now towards your goal. Find your vehicle, some cars go faster than others its the same for your investments, just way out the risks. If you choose a faster vehicle for your investments, you might crash. If you choose a slower vehicle you are less likely to crash because your going the speed limit.

 As you choose your vehicle and set reachable goals, you want to have a vision behind it all. The bigger your vision, the more drive it will bring when accomplishing your reachable goals. Allow me to give your an example:

my vision for everything I do is to influence and change the bad habits of the world to create an atmosphere where people are selfless more than selfish.

SUMMARY: set reachable goals and a line it towards your vision.
