How to get rich - how to build wealth
How to get rich – how to build wealth

If you’re on this blog, there’s no doubt you want to get rich.

Money provides us with options and a lot of money provides us with a lot more options.

If you study wealthy people, none of them got rich quick; it took many years of planning and strategizing.

But one thing wealthy people have in common is that the majority are diversified.

In this article I’m going to break down strategies wealthy people use to get and stay rich.

Welcome to Franknez.com – today, I want to talk about money and getting rich. I know many of you will gain loads of value from this article.

Let’s dive right into it!

Financial literacy is the foundation

It’s true.

If you don’t yet know how to manage $1,000 then you won’t know how to manage $10,000 or $100,000; let alone $1M.

Financial literacy provides us with the proper foundation we need when learning how to manage money.

You don’t need to earn a lot of money to become financially literate.

You just need to understand what money is and how to let it go.

Many of us were taught to save money and hold on to it for our dear lives.

But money is meant to circulate.

The Latin meaning of currency means to flow, or ‘condition of flowing’.

Just don’t get this confused with spending because understanding the differences will be key to building wealth and getting rich.

Differences between spending money and utilizing money

You spend money on fuel, utilities, the rent or mortage.

You might occasionally spend money on a night out or if you’re treating yourself, on a new pair of Nike’s.

The rich keep their expenses low (in the beginning) and watch their spending.

They build very disciplined spending habits to allow them to utilize that money instead.

So, what are some examples of utilizing money?

The rich utilize their money by creating, buying, or leveraging assets that will produce income.

While you don’t need to earn a lot of money to understand how to manage it, building wealth will require you to find creative ways to substantially increase your income.

This means the rich must either provide some sort of value to society through a business or buy large enough assets that will accommodate to their goals.

When building wealth, money must be used to make more money.

I’m going to break down below the various ways the rich are making this happen for themselves and their families.

Different ways to get rich

There are currently more than 21.9 million millionaires in the U.S and1,700 Americans are joining the list every day.

There are a variety of ways the rich have gotten rich.

But these four have stood out the most in terms of building wealth over the long run and have been the most popular ways to getting rich.

Whether one speaks to you amongst the others, it’s important to note that self-made millionaire’s have created multiple streams of income and do not rely solely on just once source.

Many earn money from all four.

Let’s break them down together.

#1. Start a business

Business owners are the backbone of America.

There are currently more than 31.7 million small businesses in the U.S.

Business owners have the potential to earn an unlimited amount of money which is why starting a business is #1 on this list.

Being a business owner is challenging but it has its perks.

Not only do you get to use your creativity to solve problems for others, but you get to build something incredible from the ground up.

Businesses also provide you with a freedom a 9-5 will never provide.

Maybe you decide to start a business but want to get rich from rental properties.

And that’s 100% okay too.

#2. Get into real estate

Real Estate

Real estate is another big one on this list.

90% of the world’s millionaire’s created wealth through real estate according to studies.

There are really two main paths when it comes to real estate.

You either become a realtor or you invest in rental properties that will yield passive income while you build a real estate portfolio.

One is more of a sales career while the other invests in properties.

If you’re interested in a real estate career, you’ll want to eventually think about selling high ticket properties where the commissions are very high.

Otherwise, using the banks money to buy property and rent it will allow you to add rental property to your portfolio while the equity in your property increases.

The property will be paying for itself, making some profit depending on how much you rent the property for, or earning thousands per month in rental income if purchased with cash.

You may always refinance the property to put money down on a second property and keep building your portfolio.

#3. Invest in stocks

A million new millionaires were created in the stock market in 2021 alone according to CNBC.

This is going to be one of the slowest ways to build wealth.

However, a quicker way to speed up your stock investments is to sell high and wait to re-enter the market when stocks are low.

Depending on your investment strategy, you might opt in for dividend stock investing and just let your money accumulate long-term.

Traditional banks don’t yield any interest, and high yield savings account aren’t much better today.

Putting your money in an index fund such as the S&P 500 (SPY stock or VOO) may yield 8%-10% a year.

That’s an $8,000-$10,000 return on a $100,000 investment.

Your investment will compound over time as you continuously reinvest your dividends back into the index fund.

Billionaire and real estate mogul Manny Koshbin built his real estate empire after cashing in $300,000 from a stock market investment.

He took his investment from the stock market and purchased his very first rental property.

And the rest is history.

Have a strategy and keep multiplying your money.

#4. Provide value to the masses

This strategy to building wealth was limited prior to the internet.

Authors and booksellers sold a product to the masses and made millions in doing so.

Today we’re seeing YouTubers and popular websites provide value to the masses through entertainment and educational content.

Musicians and artists are also building wealth by reaching big audiences.

Well-known artists who’ve made a lot of money in the game also start businesses and invest in rental properties to grow their wealth.

The way to get rich and grow your wealth is to make money and multiply it by reinvesting gains and income in other assets that will yield more income.

Money has to be in motion at all times.

Building wealth takes time

Most millionaires became millionaires between the ages of 45 and 60 years old.

Sometimes people get in on a once in a lifetime investment play that takes off and makes people rich quick.

For some people it was Bitcoin that made them rich quick, or Ethereum, DOGE, SHIB, you name it.

This is why it’s important to stay diversified and plant your fishing lines in a variety of pools that will allow you to create wealth.

I would love to hear about which of these income streams most speaks to you.

Have Money Work for You In 2022 (You’re Ready)

Have your money work for you in 2022
That next life is waiting for you – Happy New Year! 2022

2022 is here!

We’ve been taught many lessons stringing back from 2020 and transitioning to 2021.

Money has played an extremely important role in our lives.

How can you make 2022 one of your best years financially?

By having a plan.

Here are 3 massive ways you can command your money to work for you.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog accompanying you on your journey to financial and time freedom. Cheers to a prosperous, healthy, and abundant 2022.

Let’s get started!

In today’s article I’m going to go over 3 ways you can transform your finances by making some incredible money moves.

The awesome thing is that you don’t need to make a lot of money to make this happen.

It’s all about developing proper money management skills over time.

You already spend a lot of time working to earn your money; it’s tiring!

So why not learn how to put that money to work for you?

Here’s how you can make 2022 your best year financially.

#1. Start your first investment now

Start investing in 2022

You’ve probably always wanted to invest but have never really started.

Perhaps you don’t know where to start.

Bookmark this guide on how to start investing in stocks for beginners, it’s going to change your life.

One of the best ways to have your money work for you in 2022 is by putting it in a safe index fund such as the S&P 500 where it will earn you 8%-10% per year.

Investing your money is easy!

Most people have just never been exposed to how simple the process truly is.

Depending on your level of risk, you could invest in individual stocks that you think will go up in value over a period of time (e.g., Apple, Tesla, etc..).

The S&P 500 for example invests in the top 500 companies in the U.S. so it’s very well diversified: hence making it a safer investment.

I recommend you download the app “Mint” by intuit to track all of your accounts and see how they grow in real-time throughout 2022!

Create a plan to how much of your income you will be allocating towards investments every month.

I suggest having an emergency fund set aside first so that you’re always ready to tackle any unprecedented challenges this 2022.

#2. Diversify with cryptocurrency

Ways to invest your money

Cryptocurrency is here to stay and if you think it’s too late to invest in crypto, think again.

Crypto has made a loud statement, but analysts have massive predictions for many of the popular cryptocurrencies, meaning there’s a lot of room for growth.

Is crypto safe?

It is with Coinbase.

Another way you can have your money work for you is by allocating a small percentage into digital assets.

Two cryptos I’m personally long on are Cardano (ADA), and Shiba (SHIB).

Because these two digital assets are very affordable, planting seeds now could bear incredible fruits sometime during this decade.

So even though you might only be able to double or triple your investment this decade with Bitcoin, the opportunity for massive gains with other cryptocurrencies are still out there.

You can view when I buy both stocks and crypto exclusively on the Patreon.

#3. Begin to fund your freedom

One way 2022 can become your best year financially is by creating a vehicle that will allow you to escape the rat race.

Have your money work for you buy investing in a vehicle that will provide you with financial security, and earn you back your time.

If you have a job or a career, use your employer as a means to fund your passions to create a sustainable second stream of income.

Most people believe that you should live off of the income your employer provides you with.

But in order to build wealth this new year, we’ll have to shift our mindsets so that the income caters to a greater income vehicle.

That income vehicle will vary from person to person but is the fastest way to financial and time freedom.

Your job/career can fund your dreams and ambitions so that one day you won’t have to rely on that job/career.

One of the greatest investments you can make is on yourself!

5 ways you can stretch your dollar for holiday gifts

The holiday season is here which means everyone is rushing to buy the perfect holiday gifts.

How do you stretch your dollar even during these challenging times?

Keep reading to find out.

Here are 5 ways you can make the most out of your money so you can give your loved ones that special gift they deserve.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – this holiday season is all about giving. Subscribe to the blog if you want to see more content like this.

Let’s get started!

#1. Buy Bulk

HOLIDAY GIFTS BUY BULK
Holiday gift ideas

You can stretch your dollar this holiday season by buying things in bulk.

Usually when you buy bulk, the price of an item drops significantly.

Certain apparel shops allow you to buy shirts and other wearables for much lower prices in bulk.

If you can get a deal when you bundle, then it will allow you to give more product to one person or give to many people.

Online places such as Amazon and eBay sell items in bulk too.

Items range from sunglasses to headphones and earbuds, and winter apparel.

#2. Buy Wholesale

Wholesale Holiday Gift Ideas

You can look for warehouses that will sell to you the type of product you’re looking for at wholesale cost.

Wholesale prices are usually slashed by half or more!

You can also buy wholesale goods online using Alibaba and other e-commerce websites.

You can get some of the nicest and usually most expensive jackets at a much more affordable cost when buying them wholesale.

If you work in an industry that allows you to have access to multiple vendors, take advantage of these deals for this year’s holiday gifts.

#3. Use Online Coupons

coupon

If you’re buying holiday gifts online this year, you can use internet explorer’s coupon extension.

This coupon extension browses for codes online to provide you with the best price for what you’re ordering online.

The extension should be a standard popup if you already have the internet browser.

Not only will it navigate through a variety of codes, but it will even provide you with a direct link to a competitor if they have better prices.

This tool is super effective because it scans for the lowest prices while you do your online shopping.

#4. Use Unused Gift Cards

leverage gift cards
Holiday budget

Make the most out of your unused gift cards for this year’s holiday gifts.

You can use the gift cards you have sitting inside that drawer to stretch your dollar by discounting your purchases.

I personally wouldn’t re-gift a gift card but would rather use one for a gift.

This strategy comes in handy if you don’t use every gift card you’re gifted.

Using these during checkout is a great way to reduce your expenses.

Or you may even include one in a basket.

#5. DIY Gifts

DIY Gifts
Holiday budget

These types of gifts are so much fun to give because they’re cost efficient and usually very creative.

DIY gifts can be gift baskets, bundles of convenience products (lotions, sprays, hand sanitizers, etc.), and candy creations.

You can always include a mini holiday card that you can buy in bulk for each DIY project.

They can be personalized depending on whom you’re giving them out to and are great for just about anyone on your list.

Gifting this year doesn’t have to be expensive, but it sure can be special.

Here’s How To Ditch That 9-5 Job Mindset [Earn More]

Here's how to ditch that 9-5 mindset

A 9-5 can only get you so far.

The problem is no one taught us that trading time for money should only be temporary.

The truth is we all have that something within us that the world has not seen yet.

And it’s up to us as individuals to discover what that something is so that society can benefit from this value.

Your 9-5 is making someone else’s dreams a reality.

And I’m here to tell you I think it’s time you start realizing yours.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – today’s article is a little different. I want to tell you a story. But I also want to discuss personal finance, a topic I’m extremely passionate about.

Let’s get started!

A lot of you want to become rich.

Or perhaps just earn a lot more money.

Believe me when I say we’re on the same page.

I personally found this out for myself when I had my boy at the young age of 17 years old.

My folks were young parents too and I’ll never forget their struggles growing up.

When my son was born my entire life changed.

I had to become someone for him.

And it hasn’t been easy.

We Were All Told The Same Thing

go to college pay the bills 9-5 job

Go to school, get a career, or find a safe job that pays the bills right?

See, that’s all I knew too!

Life was about just getting by and living for the weekends.

The first job I ever applied to was a Del Taco in my town.

I didn’t get the job but that’s a whole other story.

My 9-5 started when I began working for my father after college.

Prior to that I was working part-time for him.

I started in the back operating machinery like everybody else.

I didn’t know anything else but the 9-5 lifestyle and the weekends.

At some point I fell out of my fathers business and began working for a bottling company in Southern California.

Another hell job.

But something drew me back in to work for my father, I needed the money.

At this point I had gone all in and started my sales journey within his company.

I came to learn one day that I was being taught how to work for the ‘man’ and that I was never going to earn like the ‘man’.

This was going to be life forever.

And I couldn’t accept that, I couldn’t do that to my family.

Why Do You Want To Leave Your 9-5 Job?

Know Your Worth how to leave you 9-5 job

Ask yourself, why do you want to leave your 9-5 job?

Sick of the mundane schedule?

Are you not respected enough? Are you being undervalued?

Do you want to provide more for your family?

These are all legitimate reasons for wanting to ditch that lifestyle.

I say lifestyle because it is a lifestyle, we choose how we want to live.

And nobody really ever told us that.

We kinda just grew up doing what we were told to do.

The thought of leaving a safe job is also scary AF right?!

That’s what really gets to us, the fear of the unknown.

This fear is what holds us back from achieving bigger things for ourselves and our families.

It’s this fear that pins us to the ground and says where do you think you’re going?

You’ve felt it, and I’ve felt it.

The problem is, how do we overcome this fear of entering the unknown?

Here are some tips from my personal journey.

How To Prepare Yourself For The Unknown

Fear of the unknown quotes

One of the most important things you must do before taking that jump, that leap into the unknown, is to prepare yourself first.

How do you do this?

Remember when I said earlier that it’s up to us as individuals to discover that something within us to share with the world?

You must have an idea of what this could be, and you only find it by pursuing a variety of different things outside your 9-5 job.

Or perhaps you already know what it could be.

But here’s the catch.

In order for you to take that leap, you’d have to have immersed yourself so deep into this creativity of yours that you were able to monetize it.

If you love to speak and a gig outside your 9-5 earned you $100, then you have the power to grow your skills and earn $1,000 or more.

If you see that this hustle outside your job has the ability to provide value to others and see it one day providing you with freedom, you found it.

But wait, there’s a second catch.

This is something you’re going to have to work on after that 9-5 job of yours.

That means sacrifices, tons of em’.

It will mean that you will become dedicated to making your dreams a reality the second you clock out of your job.

Now you’re using your employer instead of them using you, so that you can fund your ideas.

If you can earn a penny then you can earn a dollar.

And if you can earn a dollar doing what you love, then you can make ten and then a hundred dollars.

The point will come where you have a choice to make.

That choice could be one of the hardest decisions you’ve ever had to make in your life, but it could also be the best.

You will eventually find yourself acknowledging that if you could only do this full-time, you could get so much farther.

You could accomplish so much more.

Yet the thought of going all in holds you back.

The fear of the unknown paralyzes you again.

How To Overcome The Fear of The Unknown

I wish somebody would have told me this when I jumped.

But the truth is, the fear of the unknown is always there.

It just gets easier to manage.

The unknown is a fog that we must continuously work around to accomplish what we set ourselves to do in life.

To be in the unknown, is to be in a creators’ world.

And you are the creator.

Here, you set your own worth, not your boss.

When you enter the unknown you become a magnet to the things you mainly think about.

Approach your new world confidently, and believe you can do it.

Because if you can imagine in it in your mind, then you can create it in the unknown.

Write down your goals and strategize ways to accomplish them.

What If You Fail?

what to do when you fail

Failure is merely redirection.

If something isn’t working in your favor then pivot and learn what didn’t work and find an alternate solution.

Just don’t waste time trying to identify why it didn’t work.

Time is everything in the unknown.

It’s important to understand that jumping into the unknown without having monetized your ideas first is a recipe for disaster.

I’m a serial entrepreneur by nature.

My first startup failed when I was 18 years old; my second one failed at the age of 21.

I finally monetized my third startup at the age of 24 but it wasn’t scalable.

All these failures were merely lessons that eventually led me to where I am today.

I was able to leave my 9-5 after 16 months of nonstop grind after work.

What do I do now?

I write! Full-time baby.

And I also manage an advertising business that earns income ‘per project‘.

Here’s How I Discovered My Gift

Self Discovery

I discovered writing was my gift.

I love to write.

In fact, I used to love to write poetry and lyrics back in middle school.

While working with my father, I built a 6-figure clientele from scratch using mainly email; I was 23.

Then he would have me write important emails to his VIP clients.

It was during this chapter in my life that I recognized I was good with words.

But I knew I wanted to write for the rest of my life when I published my very first FrankNez article on January 1st of 2020.

Franknez.com originally started out as a personal finance blog and I knew I was going to help millions of people achieve some sort of financial success.

When I discovered the stock market in 2019 I knew I had to show people how easy it was to buy their first share of stock on my blog.

The rest is history.

I love helping people realize their potential and showing them ways to multiply their hard earned money.

This is why I publish content on market news and stock and crypto today.

Make The Unknown, Known

franknez.com

Many of us are hoping a single event will change our entire lives.

And if you put your money in the right places it certainly can!

But don’t put your dreams to the side waiting for one event.

Instead I suggest to start planning and taking action now.

Find that something within you, and make the unknown, known.
