I have been involved in finance for the past twenty years now, and although I have a passion for teaching people about finance, I also never stop reading, developing new ideas, and continually expanding my own financial literacy. I think it is important to recognize that through the years some of the rules of money have changed. It is true that we learn most of what we know about money from our parents. But what we often fail to realise is that they lived in different times. Inflation, for example, was not an issue until the early 1970s. Many concerned retirement investors purchased retirement plans without adding an annual inflation premium adjustment to the investment. Did their money run out during retirement? You better believe it. This is just one such example and there are many others.
My task is to teach you in layman’s terms the secrets of wealthy business owners and Private Investors. It is therefore important to discover that these people are active on the upper level of the Investor Matrix, that is, the business and Private Investor level. Their goal is financial freedom. People who are employees or who are self employed usually operate on the lower level of the matrix. They are striving for financial security. Remember, that if you are working for yourself, it is your time that you are spending to generate an income. If you have a number of employees working for you, then what you really have is a business, not a self-employed situation. This is not to say that an employee or self-employed individual cannot operate on the right hand side as an Private Investor or business owner. In fact, it is imperative that he or she does so if they are to achieve financial freedom. The upper level of the Investor matrix is from this moment on, where you want to be.
