Making Money 101?

Making Money 101? Of course, what we’ve been doing over the last few weeks is quietly reviewing the ‘financial picture’ for each of our 7MITs … I hope that you have taken the opportunity to do the same? Perhaps your financial picture overlaps in part with one or more of the 7 Millionaires … In […]

Going For Launch …

Going For Launch … I would like to open one of the most important discussions that we will have on this site; it starts by summarizing from your Networth IQ profile (you do have one, don’t you?!) the following numbers: i) Income Statement (actually, this isn’t even in the NWiQ!): – Your current AFTER TAX […]

I'm the liability ….

Are you an optimist or a pessimist (I’m already on record on this subject)?

A 'secret' book project …

A ‘secret’ book project … When I launched this site – and, found the 6 Millionaires … In Training! – I made sure that everybody who applied knew that I had a book or two in the off’ing … The work we are doing here will the subject of at least two books: one now, […]
