I started as a financial advisor 20 years ago, but I didn't learn how to handle money, I just learned how to sell financial products. So I spent all the money I made and when the crisis in 2008 came and I couldn't sell as much I was broke very quickly. 🙅♀️
👉So I started working with a real estate company, finding investors for them. This time I spent the money I made to learn from some of the world’s greatest teachers how real wealth building strategies work🎉🙏
I tested what I learned in that real estate company and grew their sales on average by 86% per year for 8 years. Which helped them grow their portfolio from a few hundred thousand to over 40 million Euros and me to make around 10k per month in commissions working only a few hours per week.
I started a side business with a partner in solar energy. 🌞
It was his idea and I wasn't really sure if it was such a great thing for me but I let him convince me that solar energy was a safe business and that I could sell it almost the same way I sold financial products.
😔 THE COMPANY WENT BROKE! 😔
❌Suddenly I was about half a million $ in debt.❌
And the real estate company decided around the same time that they didn't want to pay my comissions anymore, so my good income was gone as well.😭
So I tried...
❌to wait for things to get better by themselves (they don't)
❌unemployment benefits (but who really wants to live of that?)
❌a few get rich quick schemes in Forex or Crypto trading.
(Which, surprise, spurprise, turned out to be scams)
I told myself:
You have learned so much about money and wealth creation you must be able to do something!
So I started to
Finally DO the things I had learned about money as a financial advisor, in all the seminars and coachings, by making a lot of money selling real estate investments, and by going broke
And that was:
✅change my way of thinking about money
✅manage the money I had left more efficiently
✅invest my money myself following some simple but profitable strategies
And that's when my financial situation got better again ...
