Hi, I’m Adam. I’m an ex Certified Financial Planner and I started this site out of a sheer passion for providing aspiring entrepreneurs with the best advice and tips to make money and live in abundance. I’m continually building my online business as a means to gain everlasting financial independence by building lifelong passive income streams for a care free retirement. And if you let me, I can show you how to do the same.
So you’ve been waking up every day thinking, “oh shhh…erbet, not another day like yesterday”.
And it’s been like that for a while.
Funny … but my instinct tells me that you landed here because you’ve got some great ideas. And you’ve got this dormant entrepreneurial flair that you need to develop.
It’s been building up too long already. If you don’t let it out, you’re literally going to explode.
Now maybe you’re in a dead-end job?
You’ve got no free time or money and your earnings potential is limited. And you’re scared beyond belief about your retirement. You’re not saving enough and the more time you lose, the worse matters get.
It doesn’t matter where you’re at right now.
But you know one thing for sure … something has to change!
The only problem is you’re feeling like a hamster on a wheel. It’s spinning so fast you don’t know how you’ll jump off.
You’re so eager to change your life, yet so scared to take action.
Hey, I know the feeling. I’ve been there myself!
So let me tell you something.
Sometimes you have to cast your bread upon the waters.
Now I’m not telling you to take any chances.
But if you don’t buy the ticket, you’ll never ride!
So here’s the thing …
I’m here to help you realize your dreams, your goals and your entrepreneurial aspirations.
- I’ll show you how to build a profitable online business that WILL change your life forever.
- I’ll show you how to build passive income streams so that you’ll have the freedom to enjoy a truly rich lifestyle (not just financially), the freedom to control when, where and how you work, and the freedom to spend more time with your loved ones and less time working.
- I’ll show you how to automate your business so that you don’t have to be physically present in order to generate money.
- And I’ll show you how to combine your passive income with investment strategies that will not only provide you with a lifelong escalating income but will also counteract the erosive effects of inflation.
- In short – I’ll show you how to Live and Retire Rich.
Funny how things work in life … but when the student is ready, the teacher appears.
Wanna know what the greatest stimulus is for taking action?
It’s what made me get off my butt and change my life.
I started Millionaires In Motion (1989), my own financial planning business, when I was 21 years of age. It took me two years of paid employment in a retail business when I realized that I had far more earning potential and motivation in me than standing behind a counter for the rest of my life making someone else rich. It irked me to watch the owner arrive at work every day in his Porsche 911 Targa.
I had no formal education or training but I was fortunate enough to have a father who had been in the industry for many years. When he asked me how I propose to learn the business, I replied, “from you – the same way you learned from my grandfather 20 years ago”.
Just 5 years later (1994) I had placed such substantial amounts of investment business with Investec, a South African investment institution which is also listed on the London stock exchange, that I was taken on a fully paid, 7 day cruise in the Caribbean on a Royal Caribbean cruise liner named Majesty Of The Seas. By the way, the trip was so phenomenal that I literally cried when I had to get off that ship!
Then in 1996, disaster struck when I decided to buy an investment business. I’m not going to go into detail, but I lost my boots. I mean everything. Absolutely everything!
I hit rock bottom. Realizing that it couldn’t get any worse, I picked myself up and started again. The reason I’m telling you this is to make you realize how valuable your own skills actually are. I had to rely on my skills and knowledge to get going again. And I did.
Not that I needed to, but in 2001 I decided to do my Postgraduate Diploma in Financial Planning, which I completed in 5 months, after which I was awarded Certified Financial Planner® status.
That same year, I was again taken on a fully paid, 7 day skiing trip to Austria, by one of the largest South African insurance companies (Sanlam). I had placed R32 million (South African rands) into a basket of mutual funds on behalf of a single client – a billionaire by the way.
Just to let you know – I built my first website for my business in 1992 when the internet had just become public. Whilst the words “blog” and “blogging” were unheard of at the time, I developed a passion for it and have been blogging ever since.
After emigrating, I took up a position in paid employment.
Wow … big mistake! No, let me rephrase that … huge mistake!
I wanted to kick myself.
I mean, you’d expect that anyone who’s been self employed his whole life isn’t going to fit well into someone else’s business. Right?
Well I won’t beat myself up about that any longer.
Needless to say that I told the boss exactly where to shove his job (and how to shove it) and I took to my long time passion of blogging.
Yes, it took a while to get my online business off the ground.
But between my passion, my tenacity and my strong desire to succeed, it took off. I mean seriously took off!
And I’ve never looked back.
Oh, and before I forget …
I didn’t get here without some help.
If I hadn’t eventually followed the advice and help from other online “gurus” who seriously knew what worked, I wouldn’t be where I am right now.
My APPROACH TO MAKING MONEY
On Scarcity …
There’s no doubt in my mind that SCARCITY LEADS TO MISERY. But let’s not mistake scarcity from frugality. We all have to make some sacrifices in order to provide for the long haul. But what’s life all about if you can’t enjoy today? You may not be here tomorrow! Let’s face it, saving a couple of dollars a day on the things you enjoy isn’t going to make you wealthy. I’m here to help you to make money so you can live the lifestyle you choose to!
On Abundance …
Forget about the old wives tales. Whilst money may not buy you happiness, it will buy you the things that lead to happiness. MONEY BUYS YOU FREEDOM. The freedom to live a rich lifestyle. The freedom to control your own life. The freedom to pursue the things you want to, when you want to. The freedom to spend more quality time with your loved ones. If you want to live in abundance, you need to make money (or more of it). Period!
On Investment …
It’s NOT TIMING THE MARKET that counts. It’s TIME IN THE MARKET that counts. If you start early and invest a fixed amount of $100 monthly for just 10 years and then leave your capital to grow over the next 20 years, you’ll have $90,734 at the end of 30 years (assuming 8% growth p.a). But if you stall for 10 years and then play catch-up by investing the same $100 monthly for the next 20 years, you’ll have $59,294 (8% p.a.). Hmm. Food for thought!
