all your advice works. i know because i have followed those steps since my early to mid-20s when, as a self-employed freelance journalist, i opened what was then called a keough account. those were pre-cursors of today’s ira’s. i always socked the limit into those, and soon opened an ira, as well as a 401k and a roth when they became available. i also opened fidelity and later, vanguard, mutual fund accounts. i always saved more than i spent, probably at least half my pay, which was never higher than about $65k during all the years i worked in journalism. true, my friends always liked to joke that i was “cheap,” but who’s laughing now? i crossed the $1m line in late 04, quit full-time work at age 51 and do exactly as i please with myself today, which is mainly being a semi-pro musician, the career the i almost established when i was in college. mercifully, i don’t have to live off it today. my main advice is to avoid credit-card debt. i am always astonished by how much people carry. ive never carried any. my debts are always limited to mortgage and, at times, car loans. i could own fancier cars and houses, but i have never felt the need, unlike my cash rich, but investment-poor friends. i live off corporate junk bonds today, plus music and random freelancing. my goal is to get to about $1.5m, get 80 percennt out of today’s way too unstable stock market, and live off mostly fixed income investments. way down the road, ill add social security, and a pension from the 25-years-plus i worked in newspapers. it can be done. the millionaire-next-door exists all around us.
So Tai is back with another brand new program teaching you his secrets. In the past few months I’ve reviewed other programs that Tai Lopez has brought out like his social media agency program, his traveling ceo program, his real estate flipping program and most recently his master plan! Whilst the skeptics out there believe that Tai is just some scam artist I know for a fact that’s not true as he delivers an immense amount of value in all of his programs and to be quite honest he delivers more value for free on his YouTube channel than most people do in paid courses.
The mentality of ” I don’t have enough to start investing and am tapped out” is just that, a mentality. Even if you’re donating a few bucks a week/month, it is about a habit. Getting into it will really help you out. If you don’t have the money, you won’t spend the money is a good mentality to have. Deposit into your 401k each month via direct deposit right off your check if you can, you won’t miss it if you don’t see it. 🙂
The MOBE guys are your best friend until they discover you’re not buying their scam. Good for you no going any farther. Losing $49 hurts, but not as much as losing a few thousands. I’m glad you found my post on My Millionaire Mentor helpful and saw the truth before it was too late.
The promotional video on their homepage is incredibly cheesy. It looks like it was patched together by amateurs offering cheap labor, and in fact, some people have even claimed that they recognized people as actors on Fiverr who sell testimonial services. That’s probably where they bought the voiceover of “Ryan Mathews” that is almost certainly not actually Ryan Mathews.

A friend of mine went around all the local antique stores, took notes of the antiques and photographs of them. He then published them on eBay. He became so busy that his wife has given up work to work with him full time instead. She works extra hours, but it’s more fulfilling than having an idiot boss breathing down your neck.
