Back in the old days, Yours Unruly invested his cashola in some mining stocks, energy stocks, and a few other things.
Sometiems, I made money. Sometimes I lost money.
Overall, I think I probably lost more than I made.
But that wasn’t the bad part about all this. What really s*cked was… that moola was trapped in those companies.
I couldn’t spend it for emergencies (which did come up) and other things like birthdays or Christmas.
No… I had to save MORE on the side (in a crappy low-earning savings account) to fulfill those things.
You know what that meant?
It means fewer fungolas for fun stuff like rally racing.
And so… saving money became an annoyance.
I see this a lot with new clients.
They have a 401(k) or IRA because that’s what Joe Schmo financial planner recommended. It’s not that these things are inherently bad… it’s that they force you to lock up your moola so you have to save MORE (or go into debt) if you ever need something.
It’s so inefficient. It kills your total rate of return. But more than that…
It makes saving money a chore.
It makes it boring.
It makes it an annoyance.
Enter The Monegenix Method.
I took some very old financial concepts that were popular in the mid to late 1800s, tweaked and polished ’em up. Then, I came up with a new way to look at personal and business finance — a much much much simpler way. And… I integrated the two.
All I can say is this: chocolate on its own is good. Peanut butter on it’s own is good. But when you mix the two… amazing. It’s an entirely new food.
What am I yammering on about?
Well… My young padawans who join me have more control over their finances with much less work. They actually enjoy saving money because it allows them to SPEND more, invest more, and generally have more fun (imagine that).
And here’s the weird part: they always end up with more cashola than if they had directly invested in something (like a business, stocks, etc.) on their own.
It’s not magic, just math.
Now, if you bought my Cash Flow Kickstart book, you already have a taste of what this is all about. But there’s more… so much more.
If you want to make saving money fun again, come to the dorkside (or not, it’s up to you):
