Robert Kiyosaki – Passive Income – Portfolio Investments

I am going to discuss the methods that you can earn a passive income here. I do not make any recommendations you should seek your own advice before investing from a professional. Passive Income – Bank Deposits Having your money in a bank and earning interest on it is one way of earning passive income. You are lending your money to the bank. Over the years interest rates have gone up and down depending on the current economy. I remember in the eighties in Australia you could earn double digits on your deposits. Those days are gone! I know there are countries in our current economy where the banks are paying zero interest. In Australia it is possible at the time of writing this to earn 5% on a bank deposit. People often felt safer having their money in the bank than choosing other methods of investment. That feeling of certainty was shattered with the Global Financial Crisis (GFC) and the collapse of some major institutions. Clearly even in Australia you need a lot of cash to earn a reasonable passive income at 5%. Passive Income – Stocks and Shares In Australia we tend to call stocks shares but for now I will refer to them as “stocks”. In more stable economic times it has been thought that if you held “blue chip” stocks you could not go wrong. This would be the most passive way you could earn an income from stocks. By holding the investment and receiving your dividends. There are more active ways people invest in stocks and there are many courses available to teach people various methods. If you are not a stock investor I recommend you only enter the market once you have done your research and taken professional advice. Stock markets go up and down and this means so does any money you put into the market. Passive Income – Mutual or Managed Funds In Australia we call Mutual Funds “Managed Funds”. I am not sure of the terminology in other countries but basically these are “collective investments”. There are mutual funds that invest into a specialized area and there are funds that have a spread of investments into various investment types. These investments are usually accessed through a financial planner. They can provide passive income and of course come with the same risks as the markets they invest into as we witnessed in the GFC. Passive Income – Portfolio Investments Conclusion For you to be able to live on a passive income choosing any of these methods mentioned here you must have capital. For the majority of people around the world this...

Robert Kiyosaki – 7 Of The Most Awkward Money Moments

Personal finance is a touchy topic. Some people are comfortable discussing all things financial while others would rather avoid the topic altogether. So I wasn’t surprised to see that there was a survey about consumers’ most awkward money moments. CouponCabin.com commissioned the online survey of more than 2,000 U.S. adults, asking consumers what their most awkward money moment was. 1. Having a credit card declined – 41 percent More than two out of five respondents said that having a credit card declined was the most awkward money moment, and I have to agree. I’ve been in line at the grocery store with a full cart of bagged groceries and I’ve had the cashier tell me, “It’s been declined.” I immediately flushed and got flustered. How could my debit card be declined? I have cash in the account! It turned out that in this specific case, there was a problem with this merchant and the bank and running it as a debit instead of a credit fixed the issue. For those few minutes though, I was dealing with a bit of internalized panic. 2. Feeling pressured to donate to a charity – 34 percent Years ago I always felt awkward when presented with a charity donation request, but today this is less of an issue for me. It seems that everywhere I go there is a charity donation opportunity; at the drug store, the pet store, etc. I am now desensitized to the sting of saying, ‘No, I don’t want to donate.’ This doesn’t mean I don’t donate to charity; that’s definitely not the case. Instead of donating $ 1 here or $ 5 there, my family chooses several charitable organizations to support and we make a donation directly to the organization. 3. Saying no to giving money to a panhandler – 29 percent I haven’t ran into a panhandler, face-to-face, in years but I do see them at stoplights and along freeway exits here in the metro-Phoenix area. It is easier to avoid the situation while in my car, but I still feel weird that I don’t offer up a $ 1 or $ 2. I admit that I’m a bit jaded, though. When I was in my early 20s, I gave a guy $ 5 and he went into the convenience store and bought a few beers — while I was still there pumping my gas. 4. Feeling pressured to chip in on a group gift at work – 25 percent I haven’t worked in an office in more than a decade, but I can see the awkwardness of this situation, especially for those on a tight budget....

Robert Kiyosaki – 6 Ways To Finance Your Startup

If you just started a business, your chances of getting a loan from a bank are very slim. This is because you still represent a high risk for most financial institutions since your business has not yet generated any major revenue. Few institutions have a startup department and financing criteria are typically very strict. However depending on the industry, there are several other options available to you: Borrow money from friends or relatives: This is a very common way of funding startups. People you know may lend you money or invest in your company to encourage you and because they trust you. Plus, you can be flexible on the interest you will be paying back or the amount of equity you will grant in return. Make sure however that you formalize your agreements to limit future legal issues. Apply for a personal line of credit: Getting a personal loan or a line of credit from a bank will generally require you to provide collateral such as a property or cash. However it is a decent option if you are able to generate revenue shortly after you launch your company. Join accelerator programs or incubator events: Those programs gather several entrepreneurs with a common profile and are a good way to improve your product, meet future business partners and private investors. Crowdfunding: Crowdfunding is a collective effort from several individuals who donate funds to support a project, generally through the internet. This option allows you to evaluate the popularity of your business idea based on peoples’ interest to finance it. In several jurisdictions donors cannot actually get equity in exchange, but in the particular case of the United States, the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act will soon allow businesses to be able to raise capital online with small investors. Microfinance: Some non-profit institutions specialize in services to empower small business owners in their community. If your business qualifies for these types of financing, you could receive a loan that could help you jump start your operations. Peer-to-peer lending: Websites like Prosper or Lendingclub are interesting ways to raise money. The concept is to bring lenders and borrowers together, in order for everyone to benefit from better interest rates. When you get approved for a personal loan, the underlying amount is being repackaged with other loans into fixed-income instruments called notes which are then classified by risk category. Borrowers then buy the notes, and you pay them a fixed amount of money until maturity. Wisdom of Rich Dad Share and...

Robert Kiyosaki – How To Lease A Property

My first few years of renting out part of my home went pretty good. There were a few snags along the way – but all in all, the venture was worth it. I got some of my mortgage paid for – and I had some good people to keep company with. I was still living in the home when I got married just a year and a half ago. Due to economic and family reasons, we decided to purchase another house closer to the city and rent out my home. Needless to say, it was quite a change from just renting out parts of the home to friends and acquaintances! I’d say I’m still relatively new to being a landlord, but what I’ve learned in the last year or so has been invaluable. If you are already renting out a property or just researching it, I hope a few of these ideas might guide you along your journey. And, please let me know if you have any other ideas that have helped you! I’d love to hear them. Screen your renters. This is a no-brainer – and it is well worth the time and money invested. If you can, do a credit check and contact their previous landlord and current employer. This will tell you a lot. Even if you do your due diligence in this area, things can happen – they might lose a job, illness, etc or just start being a deadbeat renter. Use a state approved lease. I recommend using your state bar associations lease. You can Google it and usually find something they have posted on their website for you to fill out and use. Make sure you have all this in writing and it is signed. You’ll need to have rules on paper in case a dispute occurs. Check-in/check-out list. On the first day your renter moves in, have a check-in sheet. Go through the house and note the condition of the rooms, carpet, walls and appliances. And, have them double-check or note things too. When the lease is up, bring this sheet out and go over the items with them. If there is a discrepancy, you will have reason for keeping part or all of the deposit and/or settling any disagreements. Deposits. There are varying schools of thought on this one. But I have leaned towards being a bit gracious here. I require one month’s rent (or just under that) + the first month’s rent on move-in. Many landlords require more than this. I’ve heard two months rent + first month’s rent. Finding renters. I have actually been blessed by finding decent renters...
