Are you making the wrong trade? #1 Passive income Coach Douglas Vermeeren

Douglas Vermeeren #1 Passive Income Coach 8

Income generally requires a trade. You trade your time, effort, freedom and inspiration. In other words when you are working at a job all of those things you trade are owned by your employer. One of the saddest cases of owning inspiration I think, comes from the life of Comic book legend Stan Lee. He created Spider-man, Thor, The Hulk, Fantastic Four and many others yet he owned none of them. He did not receive royalties. Some of the greatest creations that would have neared him millions in passive income yet they belong to an employer because he was involved in this trade. Just this tragic story alone makes me want to have more passive income in my life.

PAssive Income allows you retain your most precious gifts. Again these are : time, effort, freedom and inspiration.

Others must show up at work at a specific time and even when their work is done they have to stay until the clock hits 5 o’clock. That’s no way to live. And when you are sick you actually have to call in to ask someone if its okay for you to take a day. (I’ll give you an interesting insight. I am never sick because I never have to ask for a day. I get everyday and I believe its that lack of stress that keeps me from getting sick. I have never had to ask a boss if I can take some time for a family activity. Or even more fun… I can hop on a plane anytime for any reason and that really makes it easy to take advantage of last minute flight deals.

A passive Income lifestyle gives you back everythign you normally have to trade to meet your financial obligations. You don’t want to be caught int eh rat race. As Robert Kiyosaki says, “Even if you win the rat race — you’re still a rat.” Why would you want this?

Now here’s the kicker. Take another look at the picture with this article. There’s something very interesting about this picture and it’s not completely obvious jsut by looking at it. But its definitely worth pointing out. Are you ready for it?

In this picture I am making money. My version looks a look different than what many of you are currently experiencing. Reach out if you want to get started.

Douglas Vermeeren #1 Passive Income Coach quote

I still remember the day I showed at a business meeting in my Ferrari. (This car in the picture is actually not mine – it’s my friend Ryans. And it’s a Lambo for those who know their cars. By the way he makes his money passively too.)

Any ways, I showed up in this meeting in my Ferrari and I was wearing shorts, a t-shirt, flip flops and a baseball cap. It was a big real estate deal and everyone else was in a proper business suit. At first I was uncomfortable because I wasn’t aware that the meeting was going to be so formal. One of the guys beside me sensing I was feeling uncomfortable leaned over simply said, “You can show up in Shorts and a T-shirt or anything else you want when you drive a nice car.” Everyone around the table laughed. I’ll never forget that moment.

And since then I have thought about how having a passive income lets you live the life you want regardless of the setting. The bottom line is when you live with passive income you don’t have the same rules as other people.

This is me taking Helicopter lessons. It’s amazing what you can do when you don’t have to be working at a job somewhere. Passive income allows you to do that. If you don’t currently have a passive stream of income (or ideally many passive income streams) you are destined to trade your time for money until you die. (Warren Buffets words not mine :)) Set a goal right now that you will start to develop more passive income streams in your life and escape the system.

Financial freedom is not an experience. it’s an exact number.

Just received a really cool thank you card from one of my students who expressed that learning the principle of what financial freedom really looks like meant to her. I must admit that when I learned this concept, that everyone misunderstands, from one of my mentors it also changed my life. If you’ve been to one of my events where we’ve talked about this principle you get it too. Financial freedom to most people is an emotional experience. In other words: more time off, more time with family, travel, the ability to do what you want, not worry about bills, etc. These are all incorrect definitions. Instead Financial freedom is one exact number. It is specific and clear and as such is attainable and near. When we know specifics we can achieve it. Your financial freedom is the exact amount of money you need to satisfy your obligations every single money. And to be truly free this amount of money needs to arrive passively. Type Amen if you get it. #douglasvermeeren #1wealthcoach #moneyandabundanceshow

Teaching about money in schools

leave a comment »


Recently a friend of mine posted a new article on Facebook about how in his area the school system has decided to start teaching about money in the local high school. I think this is a great start as most schools don’t educate students about what ends up being one of the most important life skills that they will ever gain.

My challenge is that whenever these money courses are offer they are general taught by financial institutions or people within that system. Those advisors are trained to invite you to save, invest in specific investment instruments and follow their prescribed pattern. Most of the time people who follow this route maintain an average yet secure income.

That is one route to understanding money.

Why I want to know is why don’t they ever invite the entrepreneur mindset to come in to talk about money. This group far surpasses the institutional people in terms of personal worth and and creativity. They also see money in far different ways that the ‘save and sit on it’ crowd.

If you really want to understand the economics of society you need to invite those who are conducting transactions into the conversation. Just sayin’

leave a comment »

You may have seen the hit film The Secret or the follow up films produced by Douglas Vermeeren, The Opus and The Gratitude Experiment. But you’ve never seen anything like this. This is the first film dedicated exclusively to teaching about wealth and abundance. “Money is not the root of all evil. It’s actually the seed that let’s you accomplish your dreams,” Revealed director and producer Vermeeren, “Money is the ingredient that closes or opens doors to how far you can achieve what you really want in life.”

While he goes on to suggest that money should not be worshipped or put in the place of family or other high priority items he and his speakers from the film suggest that money allows everything worthwhile and worthy to be more in your life. “Money gives you the freedom to make better choices.” Is a reoccurring theme from the movie.

The Treasure Map

The Treasure Map

The film features John Demartini (The Secret) Loral Langemeier (The Secret), Raymond Aaron, Marshall Sylver, Randy Gage, Stefan Aarnio, Darren Jacklin and Vermeeren. Each of them share insights and strategies on why you should become wealthy and how to do it. The film is one of the more practical approaches available today and is sure to get you thinking differently about your money situation.

If you are looking to escape the prison of debt and financial challenge in todays economy this film should definitely be on your list of MUST SEE movies this year.

1 simple step that will put you on the road to financial freedom

What does your financial freedom look like to you?

I often ask this question at my seminars and the responses I get are often as follows:

“I’d like spend more time on vacation.”

“I’d like to live in the house of my dreams and drive the vehicle of my choice.”

“I’d like to quit my job and spend more time with family.”

Although these answers are nice – they are not correct.

Financial freedom is not about what experiences you will have and how you think you will spend your day to day life.

Financial freedom is an exact number. How much exactly do you need to meet your obligations each month.

When you passively achieve the exact amount of income you need so that all your obligations and expenses are met you are financially free. Does this make sense? That monthly amount is your obligation or prison. So once you have attained it passively it’s no longer your prison. It’s satisfied without you.

The problem for most people is that they can tell you what they want (The experience) but they can’t tell you what it takes to make it happen.(The exact number) If your goals are specific and clear they are attainable and near. So if you want to be financially free how much money exactly do you need to have coming in passively each month.

Here’s an example:

If your monthly bills are as follows: (I know this is not a reflection of most peoples bills. But its an oversimplified example)

Mortgage $1250

Utilities $239

Groceries $250

Car payment $249

Gas $100

Total monthly Commitment: $2,088

So your financial freedom is actually $2,088. If you can build a passive income stream that replaces whatever you a re doing to get to $2,088 then you have achieved your financial freedom.

Naturally this is oversimplified. And of course, your financial freedom number will change based on your needs and situation. Once you have achieved a passive income that covers your necessary obligations you are financially free. The next step is to move onwards up to financial abundance which is something that is rarely discussed. Financial freedom is important – but financial abundance is where life really begins to change.

More on this later…

By the way, knowing your financial freedom number is just the beginning. Knowing how to get there is where things really get interesting. If you’d like to come out to one of our events near you go to
