Introduction To Workshop

I believe that the single biggest problem we have in this country is that we don't teach kids about money in school. And so as I go through the challenges that many of you are facing and we'll talk about Syria second, I honestly believe that if we just taught what I'm teaching today in school, we all do better, because when you know better, you do better. But it's not taught in school and so candidly were able to be taken advantage of by just about everybody. Financially, my goal today is to fix that. This class that I'm about to go through right now is based on two books. It's based on the automatic millionaire, and it's based on Start late. Finish Rich and I just re released the Automatic Millionaire. This book came out over a decade ago in so many of you have read it, It's changed your life. So what I thought I would do is actually read the introductions book, and then we're going to dive into this class because the introduction is really the set up to this class. So here it goes. W...

hat if I told you that in just in our or two I can share with you a system that would slowly but surely transform you into a millionaire. What if I told you it was a proven system Proven that you could set it up in just in our to that would require no budget. How? Even repeat those words? No budget, a lot of Homer happy. And I'm saying this right now No discipline. Not a lot of time. Less than $10 a day that it could be done over the phone. Because now everything could be done over the phone online and from the comfort of your own home. You don't have to go walk into a bank or brokerage firm to do anything. I'm gonna teach you today. Literally. You could do everything from your phone. Your IPad is just It's just incredible. A lot of what I'm gonna teach today. You could do it. Used to take an hour. Now you do in 10 minutes. I can't even get over how fast things could be done. Now, what if I told you that this system is called the automatic millionaire and if you spent just in our two with me, you could become one What if I told you it was so easy? So easy, in fact, that if you set it up, you'd never have to spend more than 10 minutes a month monitoring it. First, I would I have your attention? Yes, I could spend four weeks with you. But the beauty of what I'm going to teach you today is a comprehensive system to fix your financial life. Four life in a couple hours. I got to see nine years is a financial visor, having grown up also in this business, what really works. And at the time I had a we had over 100. Would hundreds of clients that were self made millionaires. And the common theme was they had all become millionaires on ordinary incomes. And they had done one key thing. And you should just write this word down and I'm gonna come back to it over and over and over again. The common thing they did is they made their financial life automatic. Why does it need to be automatic? Because here's the truth. You're busy. You have busy lives. We're all busy, busy, busy, were busier than we've ever been. And if you have to have time and discipline to have a financial plan. You will fail. And I've seen it time and time again, Hickel. People like this is the year. This is the year I'm going to spend less. This is the year I'm going to save more and people do it for three weeks. Okay? Automatic plans work. So with that, let me go through the mission of the class and go through exactly what will teach. I want to inspire you to live and finish rich, not just finish rich, but live rich. Because what I fundamentally believe is this you don't actually have to be rich. Toe live rich. So I'm gonna talk about techniques today to build your financial life. What? I'm gonna talk about the heart today and your values, because what I know for a fact is it's not just money that determines how good you feel in life. So we're gonna look at your values and what's most important to you. We're also going to go through very specific strategies on how you livin finish rich and at the end of today's program, going to go into your values, I will cover how to build a retirement account. How to build a security account, how to build a dream account and how to build wealth on his little $5 a day. I'm gonna go through the number one million year habit that changes everything. That's habit, by the way. I'll just give you a sneak peek. It's called Automatic. Okay, I'm going to talk about why budgets don't work the secret to having that retirement dream account security account. Gonna make that part real simple. How to become rich Faster if you're a freelancer. Lots of you who are watching today are freelancers. You are. We live in a freelance economy right now. You are self employed. We are free agents. I'm self employed. I've been running my own business for well over a decade since 2001. That's a different world and the most unfortunate thing with freelancers. I see a lot of freelancers making actually pretty good money, but they're not keeping any of it. I also see the challenges of having your incomes go up and down. It's not consistent because you'll make money and then you don't make money. It's not being an employee's. We'll talk about that, Um, how to organize your financial life fast. So I'm going to do everything today from give you old school techniques like paper. And I'm actually gonna We gave you guys up, you'll see his layer. But we give you guys a hand out. I'm gonna walk you through old style like, Hey, this is how you can do it with paper. I'm gonna walk you through new style. Here's all the tech. Here's all the apse. Here's what I use Ah, but you're able to get your financial. I've organized very easily today, not today. But after the seminar is over, you'll go on do it. How to put your financial life on autopilot so that you don't have to worry how to protect your family with wills and life insurance. So I want to make sure that if you are married, if you have kids, you are protected with wills and life insurance. Dry subject. I'm gonna actually make it fun and interesting, but I will definitely kick you in the butts today to go and get that done. Because I know you need to get it done, and I know most of you have it. We're going to use over five hours with 11 specific steps. And what we're gonna do is use a couple tools we're gonna use, You know, I gave you what's called the finish. Rich quick start system. Um, everybody in here. You've all been given printouts, but those air you at home. Where's my camera? To the home people. This is your hand out right here. You should be able to download it if you haven't downloaded printed. I'm gonna refer to this throughout our workshop. Okay, so let's start right now. Oh, this is one more really cool thing, and then we'll start a second. I'm gonna go through the automatic millionaire blueprint, This is It took me 20 years to simplify to this map. This map is a tool that I'm gonna walk you through in less than 15 minutes. Very early on today. Money can be overwhelming. Actually. Let me say this again. Money is overwhelming. It's not that it can be overwhelming. It is overwhelming until you actually know the system. I hope by the end of day it's an overwhelming for you. But here's the thing. Like I'm gonna go through 11 steps. You we need one step to change your life. You only need one action to change your life financially. Throughout today, I'm gonna be going Go do this. My goal with this class, His specific action. I don't know which action you'll take. Some of you. I hope you'll take more than one action. But I want you to be asking yourself all day long. What's the one idea I got today? Federal Reserve came out and said 47% of Americans based on their research cannot get their hands on $400 in case of emergency. 47% of Americans. I went to the bank last night to get money to show this because I don't use a carry money like this. This is $400 You guys. So one in two Americans in case emergency right now can't get their hands on this. We have to fix this. We have to fix this. And if this is you were gonna fix this today because this is this is doesn't work in this country. Now. There's an opposite of this. The opposite is a whole lot of people have gotten really wealthy like since the great recession. We're richer as a country than we've ever been. Automatic nuclear book First edition. 50 trillion in wealth in this country right now. 90 Trillium, First edition. I think we had six million millionaires that dipped after the recession. We have over 10 million documented millionaires in this country, excluding their homes. You out in home equity values. The numbers are anywhere from 15 to 25 million. Americans are millionaires. There's a whole segment of people in this country that are richer than they've ever been. Stock markets at an all time high real estate market is at an all time high. So not everybody in this country is suffering. And a whole lot of people, a whole lot have have more than not did it on ordinary income. So I'm gonna teach you how to build wealth over your lifetime with a timeless, true, harnessed approach. What you're not gonna get here today of 25 minutes in. If you came here for the get rich quick scheme, you guys, you can click off because I don't have it. I don't have a fast lean a fast track. You can do this in place, a title ad on Facebook and you too can get rich overnight. Just like me. I'll have that. I don't actually know a single person personally who's done that. Everybody I know has built wealth over the lifetime. They worked really, really hard and they did a couple fundamental, simple things, and over their lifetime they became wealthy. That's how I know most people. Another exceptions, but that's the program I got for you.
