In my last blog post, I talked about how you can become an investor.
The thing I want you to remember is that investing isn’t about the assets you buy. It’s not even about the money you have available right now.


To succeed as an investor, you need to create a wealth-building system.


Now, let me ask you a question…


What do you think comes first when you’re creating that system?


Is it wealth or education?


It’s education, of course. If you try to build a system without knowing how to do it, you’ll end up with something broken. That’s how you lose money.


In my last email, I discussed how money is one of the key components of your system. You have to learn how to manage your money before you can build wealth.


But you need to educate yourself in other areas too.


You have to learn how to protect yourself and your family. Without proper structures and strategies in place, you’re at risk if something goes wrong.


You also need to learn about the different strategies available to you. Just as important, you need to learn how each of them applies to your situation.


There’s no single foolproof approach to building wealth.


Each journey you take will present unique challenges for you to overcome. Education will give you the tools you need to confront those challenges.


Then you can create a wealth-building system.


That’s the secret so many investors don’t tell you. It was only after empowering themselves with knowledge that they achieved success.


Your first and greatest investment you will make in your life is in your own real world education. Without it, you are wandering around in the dark, hoping for the best.
