Building Financial Independence with Nikken

Network MarketingDo you know how to build financial freedom? Do you know what financial freedom is?

Financial freedom is the ability to go about your life, doing what you want to do, without having to worry about money. Sounds cool and maybe too good to be true, right?

Well, it is true because I know a few people who have it. I have blogged a lot about Loral Langemeier and I believe she has financial freedom. Some other people I follow that you may have heard of, like Mike Dillard, Bob Proctor, and Joe Vitale, also have financial freedom. Closer to what I’m doing, Reid Nelson and Dave Johnson are high-ranking Nikken distributors who have achieved it.

Put More Cash in Your Pocket

Loral Langemeier has a new book coming out on October 13th, and they are expecting it to be a best seller just like her three Millionaire Maker books are.

I’ve talked about Loral several times here, mostly about her Cash Machine Workshop live event. The reason I devote so much time to her is that she is for real. She isn’t selling a program that requires you to spend a wad of money to learn a bunch of new skills so that you can hopefully start to make a little money in a year or two. She encourages you (at the live events she pushes you) to use what you already know to start making money today. Once you are making money, then you spend the money to hire the team that will support you.

The Bad Economy and the Death of the Dollar

I was looking for something to listen to and came across Robert Kiyosaki‘s audio book – Increase Your Financial IQ. It was published in March 2008 and has some very good, current information. I highly recommend it. There was some important information in the first chapter that I want to share here.

In 1971 President Nixon took the US off the gold standard, which changed how our money works. Prior to 1971, the dollar was based on gold, which has intrinsic value. To save money was equal to saving gold, so it made sense to save money for retirement or college because it would hold value.

Do You Have a Business Plan?

If your business doesn’t have a business plan then it is in your best interest to create one.

I heard about a study recently of 1600 businesses conducted over a 25 year period about how they used business plans. 70% of the businesses surveyed had no written or verbal plan of any kind, 27% of them had only verbal goals, and only 3% of them had their plan written down. What you need to know is that 98% of all the wealth in those 1600 companies was held by those 3% that had written goals.

Loral Langemeier’s Cash Machine Workshop

My wife and I spent the past three days as volunteer staff at Loral Langemeier’s Cash Machine Workshop in Atlanta and had an absolute blast.

If you don’t know who Loral is, then you need to find out about her now. She is the Millionaire Maker and she teaches people how to become millionaires in three to five years. She has several best-selling books, cd programs, a radio show and live events. Her remaining Cash Machine Workshops for 2009 are in San Francisco, Los Angles, and Seattle.

Asset Diversification

Diversifying your assets can save your retirement.

If you know anything about the stock market, you know that the experts say that you need to diversify your stock portfolio.  You have a better chance of making money if you have it spread out over multiple companies in multiple sectors.  That way you are insulated from the risk of something happening to one company or even a whole sector.  If you remember the Enron scandal then you probably remember hearing stories of people losing their entire retirement savings because it was all invested in that one company.  You may also remember the “Dot Com” bust when that entire sector took a huge dive.  Mutual funds are a great way for ordinary people to diversify their stock holdings because they provide a single place to invest money that then gets invested in a broad sampling of companies that have been selected by an expert.

Get Success for Your Business

Bob Proctor can help you get success for your business in just 6 minutes every day.

I have been subscribed to Bob Proctor’s 6 Minutes to Success for a couple months now and I look forward to it every morning.  It is a daily video that is only a minute or two long in which Bob Proctor talks about a specific concept for you to think about during your day.

So far the episodes have covered a wide variety of topics, such as:

  • The 6 Steps to Success as described in Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich

Diminishing Value of the Dollar

The value of the dollar has been decreasing over the past several years.  You know that.  You know why too.  The government keeps pumping out more money in the form of bailouts and other programs.

Until about 30 years ago, the value of the US Dollar was tied to the value of gold.  We were on a gold standard.  In 1971 President Nixon abolished the gold standard which made it possible for the government to have more money printed without it being backed up by anything.  You’ve got to hear Glenn Beck’s description of this and see his chart.  It is amazing and somewhat disturbing.

Would You Like to Have Wealth Beyond Reason?

Wealth Beyond Reason sounds good doesn’t it?

I have used a lot of programs about the Law of Attraction and other related topics from Bob Proctor, James Ray, and others and they are all very good.  I highly recommend them.  But the absolute best I have come across for how to use all of that information on a daily basis to actually create the life you want is Wealth Beyond Reason by Bob Doyle.

The most important thing Bob teaches in addition to the Law of Attraction itself, is how to clear the resistance that we have.  I believe that you will get real benefits from this program.

Diversify Your Savings with Gold

I have been learning about gold recently. Gold has been used as money since before recorded history. In more modern times it became easier to carry paper money and less valuable coins to pay for goods and services, but the money was still backed by gold and silver. I actually have an old $1 bill that bears the words “Silver Certificate”. In 1971 President Nixon took the US off the gold standard changing American currency to fiat currency.

From Wikipedia: “Fiat money achieves value because a government accepts it in payment of taxes and says it can be used within the country as a “tender” (offering) to pay all debts.”
