The numbers are undeniable…
U.S. unemployment is at a record low.
But when you’re at the lowest point of any curve — like we are with unemployment — you can only expect it to go back up at some point.
Where do you want to be when it does?
Out of a job in a shrinking market with no prospects… waiting for some sort of handout?
Or standing in a long line filled with tired, hopeless people waiting for a meager meal, exhausted from pounding the pavement… discouraged by constant rejection… while the bills and notices keep stacking up?
That sounds tough.
The flip side sounds much better.
You — still in control of your life — ready for anything the economy throws at you and still growing your wealth.
You’re able to prosper even in the face of strife and enjoy the benefits brought to you by a portfolio of businesses working for you.
Cash flow coming in every month… constant checks filling your coffers… a bank balance that keeps increasing, strong enough to withstand the toughest days…
That’s the option I’d pick.
Like bestselling author and 10X real estate investor Grant Cardone says — cash flow is king.
You see, the world is changing rapidly. And it isn’t just about where the stock market is going…
Sure, this week, as I write, stocks are down over 3% in a single day. The worst drop in over two years.
Over a virus…
And its devastating potential impact to production, with so much of the global economy tied up in Chinese manufacturing.
Do you want the whims of a market — which you certainly don’t control — to dictate your wealth and financial success?
I certainly don’t.
The same thing goes for a job.
For most of your life, you’ve been an employee of someone else, earning steady, predictable income in return for your time, skill and effort.
You might love what you do, you might not.
Either way, if you’re relying solely on your job to protect you from the ups and downs in life, you’re likely in for a tough surprise…
Two weeks ago, I was in St. Louis, Missouri, meeting with the seller of a business — and a partner of mine and Carl’s.
Never one to give up the hustle, Mike told me a bit about his journey to wealth… what led him to subscribe to Dealmaker Wealth Society… and how he became a partner of ours.
He had tried stocks, options, bonds — and more.
Then one day Mike realized he wanted more control. More influence over what would actually generate lasting wealth for him and his wife and, more importantly, his children and five young grandkids.
Luckily for Mike, he found the answer at Dealmaker Wealth Society.
If you’re the owner of a business that produces strong cash flows, that will put you on the right side of the new world order.
Look — it’s easy to have two jobs. You could drive for Uber or Lyft. Or deliver food for Grubhub or DoorDash.
The question is will having a second job move you forward?
Eccentric self-publishing millionaire James Altucher said it best… “Robots are the new middle class. And everyone else will either be an entrepreneur or a temp staffer.”
Pretty bleak. Unless you’re a part of the class of entrepreneurs.
Here at Dealmaker Wealth Society, our goal is to give you the tools — and the confidence — to become a business owner. An entrepreneur. One who controls their own destiny.
A destiny where YOU dictate the terms and the payouts… not the other way around.
I tell people all the time — be the owner, not the renter.
Instead of driving an Uber… buy a transportation company that leases out vehicles to drivers and charges them weekly.
Instead of delivering food to others (and relying on terrible fees and tips to cover your car’s maintenance costs)… buy a mechanic shop that fixes the vehicles — both human- and AI-driven.
Now is the time — your time — to put yourself in a position where you can’t be replaced but can do the replacing. Take back control.
Don’t be satisfied with just a day job. Challenge yourself to live a bigger, fuller life. And create a brighter, more prosperous future now, while the getting is good.
Remember, you’re only one deal away.
