The other day I was playing a ball game in the street with my little girl. She likes playing with me with these "scoop" things and a Wiffle ball. She drew these 2 circles, one for me and one for her to stand in. Then she wanted to keep score with chalk on the sidewalk using a "scoring" system that she could understand, heavily weighing in her favor of course.
So, I started adding things to this "scoring" system. Such as, if you step out of the circle, you lose a point, even if it's my fault that I throw the ball in such a way to force you out of the circle. Then I added even more. If it takes more than 3 seconds to get the ball, you lose 2 points. I added something else that would make her lose 10 points if she offended the rule. Before the game really started, she was already in "debt" to the scoring system. It was getting so ridiculous that she slowly started to see that she couldn't ever win in this losing game I was setting up for her. This caused her to disregard my scoring system altogether. (Smart girl.)
I started to think about it. This is exactly how the "money system" is set up for the Average Joes of America. It's set up so that we all lose UNLESS we're rich, powerful, and elite. This game is actually very well articulated for you to lose. It has been set up this way for about 100 years and probably was in the "planning works" by the powerful and elite long before it was successfully implemented.
Even worse, most people to this day still don't know that the odds of them scratching and clawing their way out of this avalanche of new laws, rules, and regulations to keep people poor is getting harder and more impossible by the day.
Take a step back and look at it. Analyze what's going on here. Understanding what the few powerful families of the entire world are setting you up for.
Every one of us was designed and trained to become a slave for the purposes of supporting only a handful of super wealthy families. No, it's not as obvious as it used to be when our grandparents were working assembly line jobs in a dead-end factory (that's been long put out of business thanks to China). Instead, we're blinded by what's really going on with distractions such as the latest iPhone release, video games, endless amounts of "stuff" to watch on television (I just learned what "binge watching" means the other day), and any other distraction you can think of. If only we'd take a few hours to actually sit, ponder, and think about the "bigger picture" on what's really going on.
Of course, there's not much you can do about the momentum of how the ultra-wealthy have gained and sustained control over the mass population over the past century or two but what you CAN do is take control over your own future.
The first thing you can do is...stop watching so much freaking television, especially the news. This is numbing your brain into a dummy-ville state. Stop it. Lay off the iPad and the video games, too. This is putting you into a non-existent fantasy land that will only disservice your ability to think creatively as time goes on.
The second thing you can do is...start reading some reallygood financial magazines. My all-time favorite is Bloomberg Businessweek. I also like Forbes and The Economist. Reading only these three (or just Bloomberg alone) will keep you ahead of the curve on rapidly developing changes. Students often ask me how I just "know" things about real estate and different trends/changes. It's because I read and I don't watch the useless news anymore, that's why.
The third thing you can do is...understand how "financial leverage" works and how you can use it yourself. The worst thing that most Average Joes fall for is the "scam" get-rich-quick business model that, at the end of the day, yields exactly nothing for them. This includes MLM schemes, envelope stuffing, chain letters, or anything else that promotes ultimate laziness while they are supposedly going to get super rich overnight (by doing nothing at all, of course). None of these things work. They aren't designed to work for you. What they are designed for is to give you hope, let you fail, and then make you feel "burned" so you don't step out of line or even think about climbing out of those salt mines that the ultra rich want to keep you enslaved in.
The most powerful form of leverage that I learned about is being able to tap into other people's money (OPM) through credit. Even more powerful, I learned the "credit on steroids" secret by understanding how business credit works.
Do you want to know what's so sinful about people's basic understanding of economics? Here it is: Average Joes are NOT taught the things that can make them successful entrepreneurs and investors. They are taught about everything else except these things.
A while back my daughter was learning about President Lincoln. They are even teaching kids as young as 7 years old about how Lincoln was shot in the head by a guy named Booth. I'm thinking...WTH? I went a step further and gave my daughter's teacher a picture of my daughter standing in front of the ACTUAL CHAIR where Lincoln was shot. (It's in the Henry Ford Museum in Detroit. And yes, there's still blood on the chair!)
But I started to think about it. Who f****** cares about Lincoln getting assassinated? What about the economic cycles tied to the Civil War during that time? Or anything that could be remotely useful about why the guy got shot in the head?
I have a unique understanding of what's going on "behind the scenes" when it comes to economic cycles and the economy at large. (No, I can't predict everything but neither can the highest regarded economic scholars either.)
This, my friend, is ALL that matters if you want to not only survive (financially) but to THRIVE in our current economy.
Part of this has to do with understanding how to leverage OPM. The only two (2) ways that I know how to do this is by (1) building business credit, and (2) raising funds through investor partnerships.
I've learned both very well. And so can you.
Ignorance is the first obstacle to overcome, as this information wasn't for the Average Joe like you and me to ever sink our claws into. This is the obstacle that I am here to help you overcome.
Getting access to hundreds of thousands of dollars in unsecured business credit isn't hard to do but it can be tricky. First of all, you can't make any mistakes when setting everything up for this endeavor. Second, you have to follow suit with a specific strict set of action steps. If you screw up any step or decide to screw it off (and not do it) then your business building activities will suffer drastically. Third, this doesn't happen overnight. (Sorry, impatient Americans who want everything today but...to do this correctly will take a few months!)
Think of it this way, though. To have access to, in the very least, tens of thousands of dollars (by doing a half-assed job) and up to hundreds of thousands of dollars in unsecured business credit in only a few months is amazing. It'll be summer time then. You'll be a few months older. But you'll have MORE leverage than you have now.

So, what do you do with all this credit? You put it into money-making instruments such as passive income real estate (ideally) or to fund a new business or for other types of investments. This is how the rich get richer, folks. It's because they get OPM to allow themselves to get wealthy while the Average Joe wonders how he/she can make more money by trading hours for dollars. And that is NOT to right way get wealthy. Using OPM for passive income assets and investments is how you do it and I'll show you how to do it if you'll just CLICK HERE NOW!

I just got an email from a student of mine who has been working with one of my biggest investment groups and he was VERY GRATEFUL for the experience of being able to work with one of my investors. And he gave me the good news:
He just closed on his first building...a $2.4 million dollar apartment complex in Texas.
I'm so proud of him!
You see, he was one of my students that I kind of lost hope on a couple of years ago. He didn't seem to figure things out very well as he read through my Apartment Riches System. He needed a lot of hand-holding that I simply didn't have time for.
So, I told him to take me up on my rare Apartment Riches Mentorship Group, which he did. It took 9 weeks. And, again, I didn't have high hopes for the guy because he struggled through the group. But, I'm not one to discount anyone because...you just never know!
It didn't phase me when he seemed to disappear into thin air. I didn't hear from him until this past January when he said he was in touch with one of my investors and that they're doing a deal together.
Again...didn't phase me. I was shocked that he got this far with my investor because it didn't seem like this student would have the right skill set to get a deal through the typical investor maze but he really did have a great deal from what I could see.
Then I got an email from him this morning telling me that he JUST CLOSED on this $2.4 million deal, funded by my investor partner. The deal is in Texas. My student is in Texas. This particular investor is also in Texas. It was a match made in heaven.
This could be you too!

For years I've been warning my students of the inevitable. Time was running out on real estate deals. The window of opportunity is closing, and fast!
And I started this soapbox tirade back in 2013, laboring in a more fierce tone by late 2014, and told everyone that this was basically it by the summer of 2015.
Some listened, most didn't. But I did deliver the news, gave the warnings, and trained my students in the best opportunities available with the best cutting-edge strategies in which to acquire these cash flowing properties before the music stopped, before it was too late.
So, where are we now? Is it too late now?
Largely...yes. For many of the opportunities I was leading my students to do, many of those strategies are long gone, namely because the inventory for the type of real estate I teach my students to do is gone.
Now, any one of you can look in the online MLS (by using www.cityfeet.com) and clearly see that there IS inventory left. So...what the hell am I talking about? Why am I telling you that the majority of the inventory is gone and that there are no deals to be had?
Let me be clear: there will ALWAYS be opportunity in EVERY market. Good times, opportunity. Bad times, opportunity. There is always opportunity. But during the bad times, you get MORE opportunity because this is when you get to pick up properties for pennies on the dollar. Those days are gone, folks. LONG GONE! I mentioned several times over and over again dating back to 2009 even that we were in the midst of the best time in our lifetimes to pick up properties left and right for next to nothing. And that we would NEVER AGAIN see an economy like this. In fact, our children and grandchildren won't even see this devastating of a recession in their lifetimes either.
Now, hold up a second. You're probably thinking, "That's all well and good, Monica. But reality is, banks weren't lending like they are now. And unless you had immediate access to lots of cash, it really wasn't doable for the Average Joe to pick up these properties."
You're completely right. This wasn't a doable plan for most people. Only the "players" got to play in the game of getting properties for pennies on the dollar for all cash because, during that time, it was very difficult to get bank loans to purchase these properties.
The good thing about a healthy economy is that loans and money is much easier to get from banks and lenders. Getting private lenders and investor partners are a piece of cake. Everybody wants in on a good cash flowing deal. Getting money becomes extremely easily, as it is right now! And THAT, my friend, is YOUR edge in today's economy, inventory or not.
Reality is, there are only a few methods left for acquiring passive income properties in 2019!
But even more tantalizing is that I have ONE POWERFUL SECRET to not only circumvent that huge problem but to find all the deals you could ever handle but by getting endless money for any and all deals you will ever want to do.
This was a RARE first-time-only real estate training only the students who came to this RARE Underground Secret Event where I had been able to offer a "pot" of $100 million in investor partner funds for your deals and business ventures.
