    Attention: Anyone that wants a strategy for building True, Long-Term Wealth, and not a “get-rich-quick” scheme.

    Let’s face it—growing up, you were probably sold a story that went something like this …


    Sure, once upon a time that may have held some truth … for your parents or your parents parents.

    You see, when they were growing up, lifetime job security, home ownership, and a comfortable retirement were practically guaranteed.

    Back then, people needed very little schooling to get a good job, and once they did, they were usually set … for life.

    More importantly, people’s income kept pace with the rate of inflation, and they were able to afford kids, a home with a 2-car garage, and a new Cadillac

    … All on just one income.
    Compare that to now.
    Today, many businesses want you to have a Master’s degree just for an entry-level job!

    And unfortunately, that degree’s out of reach for most people unless they’re willing to take on crushing, massive debt OR they’re loaded enough to have $100,000 sitting around.

    And even if you are lucky enough to afford college, your salary won’t go nearly as far as it once did.

    You can blame astronomical inflation for that … while the costs of housing, day care, higher education, and medical expenses have skyrocketed, wages haven’t.

    Meaning, that every month, you’re forced to make the same dollars stretch further and further.

    Of course, that makes it virtually impossible for you to ever get ahead.

    And, here’s the real kicker—while you have to work your butt off to have the very same things that came easily to your parents, there’s no “pot of gold” waiting for you at the end of it all.



    Where Social Security was once considered a reliable retirement safety net, there’s a good chance it won’t be around by the time you’re ready to collect.

    All this boils down to one thing--you and I were given a raw deal.

    We were told that by hard work alone, we could get ahead.

    It’s understandable. I mean our parents probably believed the same thing.

    For them, it was true.
    These days? Not so much.
    We’re living in a very different world, where the traditional path to success just doesn’t cut it anymore…

    You can do all the “right” things—go to college, get a job, work hard--and still never experience the financial success previous generations took for granted.

    That’s why you need to work smarter, not harder. Working smarter is the only way you’ll ever experience true financial freedom.

    So, what does “working smarter” actually mean?

    Well, in today’s world, it means you need to be your own boss.That’s the fastest path for building true wealth—because you’ll never manage to do it with measly 4% annual raises.

    Don’t believe me?

    Statistics show that people who work for themselves are four times more likely to be millionaires than those who work for someone else.

    Meaning, that by going into business for yourself, you stand a
    400% better chance of becoming a
    Millionaire



    Then, if you’re like most people,
    it was immediately followed by all the
    reasons you can’t start your own business:

    Not enough money


    Not enough time


    Not enough know-how


    Not enough security

    Sound familiar?

    That’s how most people view entrepreneurship.

    They allow their fears and doubts to hold them back from reaching their full financial potential.

    That’s a HUGE mistake, and I’m going to tell you why.

    Do you know what one of the biggest regrets of the elderly is?

    It’s that they wish they had taken more career chances…that rather than allowing fear to dictate their professional choices, they’d pursued their dreams.





    In fact, the richest man in the entire world, Jeff Bezos can be quoted saying the following when asked about why he decided to leave his stable, high paying job to start Amazon.com.

    "I knew that if I failed at building
    Amazon, I wouldn't regret that,
    but I knew the one thing I might
    regret is never trying."
    Listen up, folks. You only get one life--this is it.

    If you’re slaving away in a go-nowhere job that’ll never offer you financial freedom, imagine how you’ll feel 5 years from now, 10 years from now, 20 years from now when you’re still doing the same thing.

    The only way things will change is if you have the courage to do something different.

    You CAN change your life

    You CAN experience true financial freedom

    You CAN discover the thrill that comes with being your own boss.

    You just need some guide … someone who can help you navigate all the ins and outs of Become your own boss., so you don’t:

    If you watch the drug store sale papers and couple them with manufacturers coupons you can get razors, toothpaste, toothbrushes, cold and flu medicines all for free to name a few..I haven't paid for any of those and more items in years! I have found Riteaid to be the best on a regular basis, they also have the rebate program where you go online and register your receipt and they send you a check at the end of the month, and they are very diligent with sending it, if you couple a "free" item with a coupon(yes they allow this) they actually pay you to take the item off the shelf! What is better than that!

    Hello everyone, I just joined and I'm interested in saving all I can. That includes foods and money. I'm trying everything I can think of. We are using cloth diapers on the granddaughter, making our own laundry and dish detergent, couponing all we can, trying to start bartering fruits and veggies, looking for abandoned homesites with abandoned orchards (I could use help there). I'm going to buy cloth napkins to use at the dinner table, handkerchiefs to carry to save on tissues...any ideas and tips would be helpful...
