How To Become Financially Independent Fast

If you want to know how to become financially independent, then the smart and simple moves in this post will help you do just that. But before we dive into those steps, let’s first cover exactly what becoming financially independent means.

In a nutshell, financial independence ultimately means to be able to live from the income produced from your own personal resources.

In other words, getting to a point financially, where you no longer have to trade your time and effort for the money you need to sustain your day-to-day activities.

If that sounds like the financial independence you’re looking for, then keep reading, because I’ve found a good map. A money map!

The Money MAP

I first learned about becoming financially independent from a book I read on how to become rich years ago.

The premise of that book helped me finally connect the dots on what my geography professors kept yapping about years before when I was still in college.

I had a few professors who would always say….

“It’s all about real estate, It’s all about real estate.”

Every time I’d ask why …. They’d respond…

“Because they’re not making any more of it.”

Eventually, I took the phrase to heart.

It took me a few short years droning along in a cubicle before I would act on the insight.  But, I eventually did.  I kicked that cubicle job to the curb and dived into the real estate industry to become a real estate agent!  After all, my professors did say… “It’s all about Real Estate”.

But, it was a misguided move.  What I didn’t understand, was that real money is not made in helping people sell their real estate, no no no no.

The real money is made in the buying and selling of your own real estate.  (Sure, some can make good money selling real estate, but it’s not where the wealth is at, and it’s not how you become financially independent.)

Oddly, this is a mistake many people make, but never learn from.

Fortunately for me, the pain of losing money and becoming less and less financially independent forced me to open my eyes.

Unfortunately, many people make just enough money to keep to their grind for years, maybe even decades, before realizing they’ve been on a hamster wheel all along.  This happens for agents as well as people working a regular 9-5 all the time.  They think that just because they are making money, they are making progress towards early retirement or financial independence.

I lost thousands and thousands of dollars trying to make moves chasing the “big” money as an agent.  You could say they were bad moves, but, in reality they were a blessing, because it helped me finally see the light.

It helped me truly learn what moves it really takes to earn financial independence.

And guess what?  That’s exactly what I want to share with you, my map.  I am going to share what I learned. Why?  Because, freedom is better when it can be enjoyed with others.

So here we go, here are a few simple moves you could start making today, to inch you towards becoming financially independent:

HOW TO BECOME FINANCIALLY INDEPENDENT

How to Become Financially Independent

1. Invest in Real Estate

Once I realized riches come from being an owner of real estate, not a peddler of it, I did all I could to put my hard-earned money away.

I stashed away money as fast as I could, till I could make a real investment in real estate.  To accelerate my acquisition of real estate I followed the 70-30 rule.   This is what it looks like:

70 30 Rule

70 % of my income went to living expenses and fun.

30 % went towards saving to invest in real estate.

By following this rule, I was able to make serious progress on my investment goal, while still having some money left over to enjoy my life.

However, if you’re uber-ambitious and willing to work hard, a better savings strategy would look more like this:

40% living expenses (fun is put on hold till your real estate investment goal is reached).

60% towards investment goals.

Once invested in Real Estate, you can switch back to the 70-30 rule.

This is the plan I followed for 3 to 4 years to pay off all my debt, and then started stashing away all my extra money for a down payment.  Once I had enough for my down payment, I went into predator mode.  I become a stalker of real estate.

I sat and watched the market, and waited for just the right time to buy my own little piece of property.

So, once you acquire the means to pull the trigger on your own investment property, be ready, but not over eager to invest.

2. Don’t Just Invest to Invest, Invest Smart

But don’t just invest to invest, seek to invest smart.  If you just buy a piece of property for the sake of owning it, you may accidentally throw away all your hard-earned money.

While saving much of my money, it dawned on me, that so many people were actually losing money in the real estate downturn that was happening at the time.

I didn’t want to become a statistic, so I read a few more books on real estate and got acquainted with market swings and economic cycles.

Understanding a little bit of economics is something you need to do if you ever intend to become financially independent.

Thanks to the research I did, it didn’t take long to realize what makes a piece of property a good deal and what makes one a bad deal.

Financial Independece Comes From Smart Choices

So, I made up my mind to invest smart, and you should too.  Buying smart means resisting the urge to jump in and buy any piece of new real estate that comes onto the market just because you can.

Buying smart also means learning how to spot value when you see it.  It means buying low, in an area where property values are historically high.

3. Know When to Sell  

After making an initial investment, a day will come when you’ll want to sell.  It’s when you sell, that you’ll be able to reap your avalanche of financial success.  The money you earn from selling will add to you net-worth and give you extra capital to make bigger and better future investments.

To figure out when the best time to sell is, you must become a student of history. You’ll need to learn that the markets rise and drop in cycles that span a few days, a few months, and a few years.

The more time that passes between each up-turn and down-turn of these cycles, the higher the stakes are for gains and loss.

After sitting on my investment for a few years, I decided to sell.  I bought low, and I intended to sell high.

Now, they say timing markets is a crap shoot, but if you pay attention and use your intuition, you can tell when an investment is close to reaching its optimum price point (at least in the short term).  For me, the potential for triple digit returns was enough to help me make up my mind to sell.

Sell High to Become Financially Independent

Some people would choose to hold in such a scenario, aiming for an even stronger return.  But, it’s up to you.  The longer you hold, the more you can make. But on the flipside, the higher the stakes become that the market can also turn, and not in your favor. Now, as an investor in real estate, you’ll want to maximize what you get out of the sale.  To do this, you need to make up your mind that you won’t just use any agent for the job.

 4. Know ‘Who to Use’ to Sell

If you want to keep more of your hard-earned money, you must do your homework on who is going to sell your assets.  Due diligence is essential for safeguarding money.

Here is the best way you do this with real estate.  Find the best agent that is most likely to get you the most money from the sale of your property.    The key word is “you find”.

You don’t simply rely on an agent your friend or relative suggested.  That’s what everyone else is doing, and it will get you what everyone else is getting;  Average returns on the sale of their property, instead of maximum returns.

Here is what you should do:

Spend some time analyzing the sales data for the top 20 agents who are making sales in your area.  Create a spreadsheet and analyze how many sales each agent has made.

Then, if the information is available to you (some states don’t publish such info freely, like Texas), collect the sales price and the original list price that each agent sold their last few homes for.  You can find this from Zillow.com

Shop Smart

Then, analyze the list to sales price ratio to see which agents are selling houses closer to the list price.  You’ll also want to analyze the length of time it took each agent to sell the property they had listed, the shorter the time-frame, the better.The result of this homework will lead you to the agent that is selling homes closer to their list price, in the shortest amount of time.  Finding such an agent will help you keep more of your proceeds on the sale of your home.

No, this is not a guaranteed approach, but, it worked very well for me.

5. Secure Your Money, But Make it Grow

Earning lots of money is never the end of the story.  Once you have money, the next challenge is figuring out how to keep it all.

All too often people earn a killing, but either spend it all or lose it all. So please, do not spend your proceeds on “things” that won’t bring money back to you.  You can’t become financially independent without your money working for you.

Now, if you want to keep your hard-earned money, you must find a way to secure it.

Here is one simple way to ensure your money continues to earn you more money over time, with minimized risk of loss.

Quick disclaimer: there is always a risk of loss with investing.  Hopefully you know that.  There’s even a risk of loss with savings accounts, it’s low, but the risk is still there.

To secure your assets in a way that will help you safely become financially independent, all you need to do, is divide your investment money in the following ways:

Investments for Becoming Financially Independent

Real Estate Investments at 33.3%

Growth and Dividend Stocks at 33.3%

Bonds at 33.3%

Simple, safe, smart.

6. Invest in Digital Real Estate

After gaining a few wins in the game of real estate, it dawned on me, that the internet is a form of real estate too.

The internet has similar qualities as the real estate we buy in the real world.

Much like actual real estate, where there is only a finite amount of space, the internet is finite to the degree that there are users giving existing websites their attention.

Real Estate that is beautiful, unique, or allows for more convenience to people due to its proximity to places people want or need, makes it more valuable, and more valuable real estate always demands a higher price.

And just like real estate, websites that create content or experiences that add value to visitors, attract returning visitors. And the more visitors a site gets, the more valuable the site becomes.

The great thing about the internet, is that it always makes room for those who can create the best user experience for others.

Growth of Internet Users from 1990 to Present

At the moment, there are roughly 3.2 billion people across the world using the internet, and this number is only going to increase.  The people and companies that are already set up and in the game, will have the advantage when it comes to winning the attention and loyalty of online users.  And in case you didn’t know….

Attention = Money

Remember this, with physical real estate you are limited by the amount of capital you have available to invest, but with digital real estate, you can literally create the best and most valuable asset with a little effort and a pinch of innovation.

If you’ve got drive and staying power you should invest in digital real estate, because it is one of the smartest moves you can make to become financially independent.

7. Build Perennial Income

Perennial income is income that is permanent, constant, and continually reoccurring.  And one of the simplest low-cost ways to add perennial income to your financial game plan, is by publishing either a book or an ebook.

When you create a book, you are creating an asset.  So long as it’s a book that adds value to others, and people are willing to buy it, it can become a money-making tool all on its own.

And it’s super simple to do.  I said, simple, not easy.  But, it’s an option that can open another stream of income for you with a little effort and focus.  With every stream of income you get flowing into your bank account, the closer you get to becoming financially independent.

8. Begin Dividend Growth Investing

Becoming financially independent can be accelerated with this simple financial move. It is a financial move that is extremely accessible, and all it requires is for you to intelligently place your money into companies that pay you monthly or quarterly for you to house your money. This approach is known as dividend growth investing.

With this simple strategy, all you do is buy stocks that pay you back in the form of dividends and have been growing those dividends for a significant number of years in the past. Dividend growth investing is all about setting aside some of your money today for an income stream that will continue growing and paying you well into the future.

DAVE RAMSEY’S NET WORTH + HOW HE’S BECOME SO RICH

Published

Dave Ramsey Net Worth

Dave Ramsey is one of the most inspiring and empowering personal finance personalities in the world. He’s been in the trenches himself when it comes money struggles, and he helps millions of people avoid some of the mistakes he’s made, and helps them overcome many of the financial challenges we all face daily. Ramsey has also authored multiple national best-selling books, and he leverages the power of radio and the internet to serve over 80 million people each and every month.

That said, when you render fortunes of service, you deserve a fortune. So, that’s exactly what we’ll be highlighting on this page, the fortune Dave Ramsey has managed to build for himself over the years. So, if you’ve want to know what Dave Ramsey’s net worth is, how much it’s grown, and how he’s managed to build it up over the years, then let’s get right into it:

What Is Dave Ramsey’s Net Worth?

dave ramsey net worth 2022

Dave Ramsey’s net worth back in 2018 was around $200 million, and many other sites still show this as his current net worth to this day. However, considering his assets have been appreciating over the years, along with the growth of his business revenue, which by the way, pulled in over $300 million alone just in 2022, his net worth has grown by leaps and bounds.

In an interview with fellow financial guru, Graham Stephan, Ramsey revealed that he owns over $600 million cash in real estate.[1] In addition to this, he also revealed that he invests a good chunk of his profit every month into cash holdings that comprises of up to at least 6 months of operating capital, whereby the rest goes into investments.[2]

That said, our estimate of Dave Ramsey’s net worth for 2022 is approximately $700 million.

How Much Does Dave Ramsey Make?

This certainly begs the question with regards to how much Dave Ramsey makes a year. And while we know his enterprises gross over $300 million in revenue a year, we don’t have a precise number for how much he takes home in profits.

On the other hand, we do have a baseline income that his massive net worth could easily afford him every year. To provide this number, all we have to do is assume he’s a savvy enough investor to earn at least a 4.5% annual dividend return for the bulk of his assets (which he most likely is, considering he’s increased his net worth from 200 million to 700 million in just four short years).

We’d also have to presuppose a hypothetical selling off of all of his assets, and then transferring that money into a handful of dividend or cash paying assets like REITs, ETFs, Stocks, or Rental Property.

The result? Dave Ramsey’s annual income would easily top $31.5 million, which also comes out to about $2.6 million a month.

  • Dave has published 2 New York Times Best Selling Books.
  • Ramsey was a multi-millionaire by the age of 26, and then lost it all at 28.[3]

How Did Dave Ramsey Get So Rich?

So, how did Ramsey get so rich? Well, Dave Ramsey has degrees in Finance and Real Estate, and he’s been involved in Real Estate since the age of 18. His parents were also involved in the Real Estate business, and were big on programming Dave’s mindset from a young age, on how to think positively, stay motivated, and get after the things he wanted.

Of course, these aren’t the only things that help Dave Ramsey get so rich. In fact, the event that has most likely allowed for Dave Ramsey to achieve so much of the success he now enjoys, has to do with his massive financial failures early in his career.

Just after he turned 28, Ramsey filed for bankruptcy. He literally lost everything financially. But, that devastating experience ended up becoming his masterclass in personal finance.

He would go on to leverage his personal experiences with gaining money and losing it, combined with the knowledge he acquired from his formal education, to create a financial coaching and consulting businesses that has been helping countless people ever since.

So, the short answer as to how Dave Ramsey has managed to get so rich is leverage. Leverage got in him into trouble (he was over leveraged in loans), and then learned to leverage his experiences to help people. Finally, he learned how to leverage technology/radio to reach and help more people than he ever could had he just stuck to one-on-one consultations or seminars.

MASTER P’S NET WORTH + HOW MUCH HIS WEALTH COULD EASILY MAKE HIM

Published

on

Master P Net Worth

Master P (Percy Miller) is a highly successful American businessman who is most well known from his extremely popular rap label ‘No Limit Records’ and from being one of the most productive and successful rapper’s in American history. His entrepreneurial approach to music, combined with his relentless drive improve the lives of his family, and those in his community has helped him become a multimillionaire many times over.

So, that’s exactly what this page will be highlighting, Master P’s net worth and his current earning power. And, just for good measure we’ll also include a few interesting facts related to his success and current ventures. So, let’s dive in.

What Is Master P’s Net Worth?

master p net worth 2022

Master P’s net worth was once estimated to be nearly $350 million when he was at his prime. But it dropped significantly when his wife at the time sought a divorce back in 2014. According to TMZ his now ex-wife sought over $67 million of their $178 million fortune that year.[1] Eventually they settled everything financially in back in 2016, and they’ve became officially divorce in 2022.[2]

That said, Master P’s net worth has been estimated to be around $200 million since 2017 per Celebrity Net worth. But what’s Master P’s actual net worth now? Per our analysis, Master P’s current net worth as of 2022 is estimated at $297 million.

How Much Does Master P Make Per Year?

Master P is still making moves, and is involved in various projects to help his community. He will forever be known as a Hip Hop mogul, and will pull in royalties on the works he’s done from the past for years to come. But these days, he’s pushing into new industries.

He’s expanded into the movie industry, video game industry, toy industry, sports industry and many more. Now, his next target is the food industry. P has his sights set on pushing products that find themselves on the grocery store shelves or auto showrooms.

Always a big thinker, he’s moved on to creating a line up of products, like cereal, syrup, oatmeal, snacks, and more, with profits going back to the community. [3] Inspired by Elon Musk, he also has plans for creating black-owned supercars.[4]

That said, his focus these days is to push most of the profit he makes from his enterprises back into the black community, so getting his most up-to-date income is hard to come by. However, we can still provide a baseline income, based off the earning power of his net worth.

To get P’s baseline income, we simply assume he’s a savvy enough investor to earn a 4.5% annual yield off of his net worth (not hard with 3-5% annual returns on safe investments historically). Assuming a hypothetical transfer of all of his assets into various safe dividend/cashflow yielding assets like REITS, ETFs, and Stocks, Master P could easily be making $13.4 million a year.

How Did Master P Get So Rich?

Master P’s rise to fame and fortune was no overnight feat. He struggled to make it out of the dangerous streets of New Orleans, and eventually fell into the drug game as a way to make ends meet. After realizing that he wanted more for himself and his newborn son at the time, he moved his budding family California to start over.

It wasn’t too long after he arrived, that he serendipitously acquired a small $10,000 payout from his grandfather’s wrongful death suit. This money became the startup capital which he leveraged to open up his own record store business. He struggled with the business for a time, but it led him into gangster rap, which his record store began selling to fulfill the local demand.

Master P Net Worth Quote

This led to his interest in becoming a rapper himself, so as to share his experiences from the hood with eager listeners. Slowly but surely, he grew his fan base, improved his delivery, and once he figured out the marketing and distribution side of the music business, his success took off.

As a savvy business man and master marketer, Master P leaned into the industry to become more than just a rapper. He decided to become a producer, owner, and entrepreneur of his own label. And in a sense, he became a virtual rap factory, turning out new beats, new artists, all with trendy branding and packaging that took the country by storm. By 1998 his relentless efforts saw him bring over $160 million that single year alone.

And as a big thinking business man, P’s has yet to shy away from new projects that continue to build his wealth and improve the lives of those he serves.

GRANT CARDONE NET WORTH

Grant Cardone Net Worth 2022

Grant Cardone is one of the biggest names in the world when it comes to entrepreneurship, the hustle, and making money. He’s been motivating and inspiring people for years now, on how to take charge of their life and business to find the success they seek. And as the founder of the 10X Movement, an international speaker, best selling author If You’re Not First, You’re Last, and a savvy-investor, he’s managed to build up a sizeable and impressive net worth over the years.

So, that’s exactly what this page will be highlighting, Grant Cardone’s net worth and his current earning power. And, just for good measure we’ll also include a few fun facts related to his success and influence. So, let’s dive in.

What Is Grant Cardone’s Net Worth?

Net Worth of Grant Cardone

You’ve probably been wondering whether Grant Cardone is a millionaire or a billionaire. In fact, many people seem to be debating this issue across the web. Well, we have your answer right here.

As of 2022, Grant Cardone’s net worth is estimated to be around $2.6 billion. In the past, his estimated net worth was recorded on various sites on the web to be around $300 million to $600 million. However, on his recent appearance on the hit show ‘Undercover Billionaire‘, he self-disclosed his net worth to be in and around the $2.6 billion dollar mark.

How Much Does Cardone Make a Year?

There are various mentions of Grant Cardone’s annual earnings, however none of them are from reputable sources. And the mentions of how much he makes per year are from years ago. As such, we can not provide a definitive amount for how much he makes per year. However, even without these numbers, we still plan on providing you with Grant Cardone’s hypothetical money metrics based off his net worth of $2.6 billion alone. So, if you’ve ever wondered how much does Grant Cardone make a day, month, or even a year, our metric will give you a rough estimate.

To get to this number, we will assume Grant Cardone is a savvy enough investor to earn an annual 4.5% yield on his combined $2.6 billion net worth (which by the way 4.5% is not too difficult to accomplish, especially considering historical returns on safe investments have typically fallen between the 3% to 5% range annually).

So, if Grant Cardone hypothetically liquidated all of his assets and then moved all of them into a strong REIT (Real Estate Investment Trust) like O or STOR, or his own Cardone Capital, which is essentially a REIT, his annual earnings with a modest 4.5% yield would turn out to be roughly $117 million per year.

How Did Grant Cardone Become So Rich and Successful?

Grant Cardone was the youngest of five children and was raised by his mother after his father died at the age of 10. He experienced a rough upbringing, and went through the perils of drug addiction for close to a decade. But fortunately, he eventually decided to turn his life around at the age of 25.

Grant Cardone would then go on to find his initial success as a Car Salesmen. After realizing the power of self-education, he went on to become one of the best sales people in the automobile sales industry. And then after abruptly losing his job in the industry, he would go on to create his own sales consulting business which he rapidly grew through sheer willpower, work ethic, and an obsession with success.
