Not only do you need a source of income, but having a second income is a great idea as well.

It may not seem like a lot, but it can really add up every year.

Of course, professional money managers can be a major expense in their own right. Rather than simply turning over your money to a costly active money manager, consider implementing most of your financial plan as independently as possible after initially discussing it with a professional.

Huge wealth, and even quick wealth, IS possible, but you’ll have to do plenty of personal groundwork and deeply internalize a number of paradigms and behaviours that are, at the moment, quite unnatural to you.

Hey, Maurice, and thank you for sharing your experience with MOBE. Sad to hear you lost your money to MOBE. Even worse, these MOBE guys have exactly zero respect toward their customers, right? Clearly not my cup of tea.
