EP 118: Stages of Wealth: The Journey to Financial Independence (Part 1)

This may sound like a strange opening line but…
You’ve probably never met someone more excited by buffers than me!

By the way – Yes, I’m proud of that 😂

In my eyes…
It is absolutely necessary for business owners to have some sort of buffer.

Business isn’t as easy.
Business comes with unique risks and HUGE amounts of uncertainty.

Now, let’s say you have a business with a risk of client concentration
Or, maybe you operate within a sensitive business model…

At any point, those businesses could fall apart.

Now… Why am I saying this? I’m sure this all seems pretty obvious…

Well, there are levels to business and to wealth.

One of those first levels is realising that buffers are NOT optional…
…they are ESSENTIAL!

Without understanding a few of these basics, you won’t have the fundamentals to unlock the next level of wealth.

So… what are the levels that I’m referring to?

Well, the first two levels are:

– Building a business that enables you to save at least $5k (minimum) every month for investing.
– As well as having buffers in place while you grow deposits.

Seems simple?

Well, once you’ve achieved these consistently…
You’re ready for the next levels,

I won’t dive into them in too much detail, by they include:
– The investing stage
– Financial stability
– Exiting the matrix
– and more…

Now, if you were to start building a house, but didn’t have rock solid foundations..
I’m sure you can imagine the outcome.

It’s the same in wealth creation.

The sequence you follow is incredibly vital.

Completing each stage will elevate you to a new level of wealth and before long…
You’ll have reached your goal!

Fortunately, there’s no secrets here…
