The Secrets to Wealth Building…Revealed At Last!

“What are the secrets to being wealthy?” she asked, a tinge of desperation in her voice. “I feel like rich people know these secrets that I never learned.”

She was right. There are Secrets to Creating Wealth. And I understood her frustration. I struggled with this same question for years, never getting a satisfactory answer.

 It took me forever to figure those secrets out. And when I did, my financial proficiency (not to mention my self-confidence) skyrocketed.

The truth is, very few people actually understand how to become a Wealth Builder. Everyone, however,  knows how to be a Consumer.

As a Consumer, when money comes in, you go out and spend it. Granted, you may be an excellent Dollar Watcher and Bargain Hunter. But that’s not how you build wealth.

As a Wealth Builder, you take a very different tack, making sure your money works as hard for you as you do for it. You understand—and adhere to—the Secrets to Wealth Building. They are surprisingly simple and…well…pretty obvious:

  • Spend less than you earn—never spend money you don’t have. If you can’t pay off your credit cards in full, stop using them.
  • Save more than you need—pay yourself first by automatically transferring a small amount every month into a separate savings account.
  • Invest wisely—put at least a portion of your money into assets that grow faster than inflation takes it away, like stocks, bonds and real estate.

That’s it. Only 3 Secrets to becoming wealthy. When I shared them with this woman, she was, at first, pleasantly surprised, then immediately slipped into mild panic.

“Investing terrifies me,” she moaned. “It feels overwhelming,”

“I know it seems scary now,” I assured her, “but it doesn’t need to be if you give yourself the time (at least 3 months) to learn. As A Course in Miracles promises: “Nothing you understand is fearful.”
