Grand Theft Auto 5 sales top $1 billion in three days

Only two days ago we reported that sales for Grand Theft Auto V hit the $800 million USD mark across launch territories after just 24 hours. Has its momentum slowed? Not a bit, as GTAV sales have smashed all expectations and soared straight to $1 billion USD in its first three days on the market. Take-Two themselves back in July predicted GTAV to outsell its predecessor three times over, and analysts certainly weren’t about to downplay success on the title’s part. Firms like Robert W. Baird & Co. earlier this week expected GTAV to reach the $1 billion USD mark within its first month, with unit sales hitting “roughly 12 million” by the end of September. Take-Two certainly doesn’t have to worry about making the $1 billion part at this point, plus the publisher gets to bask in setting yet another record for the games industry. Activision’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 similarly succeeding in hitting $1B in sales during its first month, but it took the multiplatform title 15 days to do so.

Robert Kiyosaki – How the Financial Crisis Was Built Into the System

How did we get into the current financial mess? Great question. Here’s what Robert Kiyosaki had to say: Turmoil in the Making In 1910, seven men held a secret meeting on Jekyll Island off the coast of Georgia. It’s estimated that those seven men represented one-sixth of the world’s wealth. Six were Americans representing J.P. Morgan, John D. Rockefeller, and the U.S. government. One was a European representing the Rothschilds and Warburgs. In 1913, the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank was created as a direct result of that secret meeting. Interestingly, the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank isn’t federal, there are no reserves, and it’s not a bank. Those seven men, some American and some European, created this new entity, commonly referred to as the Fed, to take control of the banking system and the money supply of the United States. In 1944, a meeting in Bretton Woods, N.H., led to the creation of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. While the stated purposes for the two new organizations initially sounded admirable, the IMF and the World Bank were created to do to the world what the Federal Reserve Bank does to the United States. In 1971, President Richard Nixon signed an executive order declaring that the United States no longer had to redeem its paper dollars for gold. With that, the first phase of the takeover of the world banking system and money supply was complete. In 2008, the world is in economic turmoil. The rich are getting richer, but most people are becoming poorer. Much of this turmoil is directly related to those meetings that took place decades ago. In other words, much of this turmoil is by design. Power and Domination Some people say these events are part of a grand conspiracy, and that might well be. Some people say they represent the struggle between capitalists, communists and socialists, and that might be, too. I personally don’t participate in the debate over a possible global conspiracy; it’s a waste of time. To me, the wider struggle is for power and domination. And while this struggle has done a lot of good — and a lot of bad — I just want to know how to avoid becoming its victim. I see no reason to be a mouse trying to stop a herd of elephants from fighting. Currently, many people are suffering due to high oil price, the slowdown in the economy, loss of jobs, declines in home values, increased bankruptcies and businesses closings, savings being wiped out, the plummeting stock market, and rising inflation. These realities are all direct results of this financial power struggle, and...

Robert Kiyosaki on Network Marketing-It’s an Asset, Not a Job

I am sometimes asked, “Why do so few people make it to the top of their network marketing system?” The truth is, the top of the network marketing system is open to everyone-unlike traditional corporate systems, which allow only one person to reach the top of the company. The reason most people do not reach the top is simply because they quit too soon. So why would someone quit short of the top? Most people join only to make money. If they don’t make money in the first few months or years, they become discouraged and quit (and then often bad-mouth the industry!). Others quit and go looking for a company with a better compensation plan. But joining to make a few quick dollars is not the reason to get into the business. The Two Essential Reasons to Join a Network Marketing Business Reason number one is to help yourself. Reason number two is to help others. If you join for only one of these two reasons, then the system will not work for you. Reason number one, means that you come to the business primarily to change quadrants-to change from the E (Employee) or the S (Self-employed) quadrant to the B (Business owner) or I (Investor) quadrant. This change is normally very difficult for most people-because of money. The true E or S quadrant person will not work unless it is for money. This is also what causes people to not reach the top of the network marketing system: they want money more than they want to change quadrants. A B quadrant or I quadrant person will also work for money, but in a different way. The B quadrant person works to build or create an asset-in this case, a business system. The I quadrant person invests in the asset or the system. The beauty of most network marketing systems is that you do not really make much money unless you help others leave the E and S quadrants and succeed in the B and I quadrants. If you focus on helping others make this shift, then you will be successful in the business. As a B or an I, sometimes you don’t get paid for years; this, a true E quadrant or S quadrant person will not do. It’s not part of their core values. Risk and delayed gratification disturb them emotionally. Delayed Gratification and Emotional Intelligence One of the beauties of network marketing is that it focuses on developing your emotional intelligence as well as your business skills. Emotional intelligence is an entirely different matter from academic intelligence. In general, someone with high emotional intelligence will...

Robert Kiyosaki – 8 Surefire Ways to Earn Passive Income

Everyone wants to make more money, but very few want to work more hours. The best way to work less and make more money is to learn how to generate passive income. Passive income can be described as income that is received at regular intervals that does not require a lot of work to sustain it — money that you automatically make whether you work any more or not. If you want to earn more money, the following are 10 ways to make money passively in no particular order for income potential: 1. Dividend Investing Becoming a stockholder in a company is a great way of earning income with very little time involved. Buying shares in the business, you can then decide whether you wish to receive quarterly dividend checks (money earned from your investment) or to reinvest the money back into more shares. Dividend investing is easily one of the most popular sources of passive income. 2. Rental Property When you buy rental property, you can start receiving monthly income almost immediately. The work involved requires buying the property one time only. After your mortgage on the property is paid, anything left over is considered passive income. 3. Peer-to-Peer Lending, e.g., Lending Club Online you will find a wide variety of peer lending groups. When you become an investor, you are simply lending a certain amount to other members of the group who need to borrow money. With Lending Club, you can expect to earn a 9% interest on average. 4. Building Websites If you have a knack for building websites that can generate a high amount of traffic, you have a great opportunity to earn passive income. Many people find that by simply creating an information site about a topic they are passionate about, they can get high traffic and earn income by either selling the advertising space on the site or by joining an ad revenue sharing program. Website building is hands-down the most reliable way to make money online. 5. Bonds Many individuals are earning a lot of passive income by investing in bonds. These treasury bonds, also known as T-bills or T-bonds, are long-term investments. When the bonds mature or come due, you earn money on them. For example, you could purchase a $ 100 U.S. Savings Bond for $ 50, but when it comes due, you get the $ 100. 6. Writing a Book If you write a book, you can earn royalties for as long as people keep purchasing it. Many great authors receive monthly royalty checks on books they wrote twenty years prior. All you have to do is look at authors like Stephen King and Danielle...

Robert Kiyosaki – Family Investment Offices: When Do They Make Sense?

Bill Gates has one, and so does Michael Dell. But should every super-wealthy family form its own investment office? Family offices often fulfill multiple functions that wealthy families need, such as managing philanthropic pursuits and estate planning, Bill Woodson, Managing Director for Credit Suisse’s Family Wealth Management group, said. But when it comes to investment advice, some families outsource investing strategy entirely to banks or other investment consultants. Others closely control investments in a certain asset class, but outsource the rest. Some families, however, prefer having their entire investment portfolio under one roof – their own. That requires hiring a top-notch chief investment officer, who then works with third-party firms that can offer specific expertise or provide access to capital markets, Woodson said. Bill Gates, for example, created Cascade Investment to manage his Microsoft riches, while the Dell family has MSD Capital. Bringing the CIO Home The size of the family’s total assets dictates whether a family investment office makes sense. A family with a net worth of $ 1 billion or more can certainly justify – and afford – hiring a top-flight investment manager, Woodson said. With assets between $ 500 million and $ 1 billion, the decision requires a more careful cost-benefit analysis. Below $ 500 million, “it’s very hard to make it work properly” because spending seven figures to hire a savvy Chief Investment Officer and buying the trading and back-office technology he or she needs can be onerous, Woodson said. “Keep in mind that when a family is hiring a CIO, they’re competing against firms like Credit Suisse and others for similar talent,” Woodson said. “They are expensive staff. They are the most experienced professionals with the exception of the president (of a firm) and often times even more expensive than the president.” A confidential survey of single-family offices released last year by the Wharton Global Family Alliance said 37 percent of single-family offices had less than $ 500 million in assets under management, while 42 percent had more than $ 1 billion. On average, single-family offices managed nearly 45 percent of the wealth of billionaires and nearly 66 percent for millionaires. But the survey also showed that billionaire family offices performed better than those of mere millionaires, suggesting that having more money to invest leads to better results. A Family-Specific Investment Strategy Most families create their own investment offices because they want to keep a tight rein on investment strategy. Some also think they can perform the function cheaper in-house, rather than outsourcing to a third-party.  Some offices target long-term, time-consuming asset classes such as private equity that require substantial in-house staff, Woodson said....
