Douglas Vermeeren – Proactive versus average

leave a comment »

Most people in life are not proactive. Maybe they think its difficult or it takes too much effort. Instead they would rather go with the flow or receive what the world around them thinks they deserve. They don’t understand that by default they give up on many of their dreams and desires simply because they choose to settle. One truth that is self existent is that those who are reactive or complacent will always serve the needs of the proactive and decisive. When you choose to abstain from being active you will always serve those who are proactive.

Douglas Vermeeren PP M 30

There are no passive bystanders in the game of life. You are either engaged creating the life you want or you are watching others live the life of their dreams. Often you are one of their workers helping make their dreams happen. Each night thousands of people watch others living their dreams on TV while if they were determined they could be creating realities for themselves.

So how can you get started? The beginning is simply to make a decision that you will get involved in your life. You will make decisions and strategically take control of what you want and what you don’t want. By doing so you will experience an immediate magic. The universe is a friendly place ready to help you accomplish whatever dreams and goals you decide to pursue. The Universe will send you people, opportunities and support to get whatever it is you pursue with passion and purpose. Passive dreamers need not apply.

My challenge to you is to take a careful look at your day. Are your activities in harmony with your higher purposes? Are you using your minutes to create a lifetime of fulfillment? How does it make you feel to pursue your goals and dreams? We all operate according to our feelings and if you want to feel better get started with what really inspires and excites you.  Be sure to report back, I love to hear about your adventures….

Money – Why you need to prepare now more than ever before!

leave a comment »

Why you need to prepare now more than ever before!

By Douglas Vermeeren CEO of The Millionaire Training Systems & Maximum Results

Are you financially prepared?

Are you financially prepared?

Every morning I start my day by checking the news to see what’s going on in the world.  As a general rule the news is pretty negative and often times even exaggerates that negativity just to get our attention. This morning I found a story that was very interesting to me, not just because of the shock value of the content, but because the content was terribly true.

I have actually seen the subject matter manifest itself many times before me when working with those who come to my training programs. I’m glad they come because they can get help but many of them are arriving too late.  The name of the article was ‘Why Millennials may never retire.” Are you going to be ready to retire? Nicole Goodkind of the Daily Ticker/Yahoo Finance doesn’t think so and for the most part I agree.

According to her research those born between 1980 and 2000 may never be able to experience retirement. She states that, “The generation that came of age in the tech boom of 1990s but graduated from college into one of the worst recessions our nation has ever seen is left behind financially.” It is true that they are behind. Youth that are emerging into the working markets now are finding it very difficult to find jobs that pay high enough to meet their financial requirements. The median debt for students upon graduation is $23,000 and it is estimated that more than 7 million college grads are on a path to default on those loans.

Goodkind also cited a recent study by Nerd Wallet that estimates these same college graduates will not be able to retire until age 73. That’s 12 years later than the current national average age of 61.

These shifts in our economy do not only effect the millennials. I have seen first hand through those I have met that many over 40 are also struggling to prepare for retirement. They have no savings, no investments no retirement strategy. They too may be on track to work well into their mid-70’s, if they can retire at all.

Will you be included in this group? What can you do to avoid falling into the trap of being unprepared?  Here are a few suggestions that will help you begin to get prepared so that you can leave the herd that will very soon find themselves unprepared.

1)Start thinking about it

Too many people think that things will just sort themselves out. They don’t feel that they need to think about money, retirement or even get prepared. It’s like the fairytale story of the grasshopper and the ant. For those who are not familiar with the story the skinny goes like this: The grasshopper plays all summer while the ant is working hard to stockpile food and supplies to prepare for the winter. The winter comes and the ant is prepared and the grasshopper is not. Too often people live their life like the grasshopper. They know that they have to prepare for the future but they keep putting it off thinking they will have time to catch up later. Summer draws to a close and the winter creeps up and they are not prepared.  You can’t escape the future by pretending it doesn’t exist. It is coming and while I am not a doom and gloom type of person I warn very strongly that it’s easier to prepare now than try and catch up later. A future situation will not go away by pretending it’s not coming or by not thinking about it. Start thinking about it now and preparation will be easier.

When should you start thinking about it?  Naturally the earlier the better. It’s also true that the earlier the easier.  It’s also true that the earlier you start preparing for your financial freedom the sooner it will arrive. Although this article has spoken a lot about the term retirement that’s not the goal as I see it. the goal is financial freedom and that can arrive at nearly any age and is not tied to the concept of retirement in my mind. The old saying is true, “If you play now, you pay later with interest. If you pay now you get to play later with interest.” Now is the time to start acting smart with your money.

2)Look at where you are

Most people don’t know what their current situation looks like. This is the first step to know what your future can look like. While I not strict about keeping an exact budget it is important to know what your income and expenses look like. Naturally there may be unforeseen expenses but the closer you can get to identifying your current situation is the more likely it is that you will begin to recognize what’s really going on with your money. (More about why this is important below under the heading money strategist.)

3)Look at where you want to be

If you don’t know where you are now chances are you really don’t have a good idea on where you want to be financially in the next few years. Often when I ask people questions about their financial future they share ambiguous statements like, “I want to be rich.” or “I want to be financially free.” But most people have no idea what that really means or looks like. If you can’t describe it you can’t attain it. A goal that is specific and clear becomes attainable and near. What do you want your lifestyle to be now and when you retire? Or what does financial freedom look like to you? Get specific if you can so that you have a target. I recognize that this may change but if you begin with a target you have something to recognize whether you are on the way.

What does your financial future look like?

What does your financial future look like?

4)Become a money strategist versus a money manager

This is the point that is the most important. A money manager is what most people have been trained to be. A money manager is reactive. They get their paycheck and then go about the task of making that paycheck fit the bills they have. When they get to the end of paying their bills they feel successful. At the end their may be $100 or $200 and because they feel like the goal has been met that $100 or $200 becomes what they call ‘disposable income.’ Disposable means to throw away and that’s exactly what most people do with their money. A money strategist is different and has different goals. A strategist is not react – they are proactive. They plan for the future and their goal is not to match a paycheck to expenses. Their objective is to pay the bills but also to build a better financial future. When they have that extra $100 or $200 left after paying the bills they use it further their future income in some way. Often it goes into an investment or a mechanism to generate more money for the future. remember the saying pay now to play later with interest. This is that principle in action.

There are many things you can do to prepare for financial future right now. But the biggest and most important principle is to do something. even something small done regularly has the power to change your situation dramatically. Don’t wait. Get prepared. Your financial future is awaiting you and financial freedom can be yours quicker than you may have imagined.

How is the most money made?

By Douglas Vermeeren

Make more money today

Make more money today

Money is something that is important to all of us. It is even more important it seems when you don;t have any. When you don’t have enough it certainly seems to be a high priority and an issue of major concern. No matter where we go in life it seems there is a price tag attached.

Not only have I found that money is the dominant issue among all of the students I have taught there is one issue closely related to money that has got people just as concerned. And that issue is time.

People also want to make money as quickly and easily as possible.

While I do believe that money can often be made quickly and easily I want to give a correct expectation that it isn’t often as easy as most of the ‘get rich gurus’ and network marketing companies out there are promoting. (Sorry to pick on those tow groups but they are generally among the most common promising a sure fire way to wealth. And while it may happen with their methods it is somewhat uncommon.)

A recent study identified 4 key areas where the majority of wealth and wealthy lifestyles are created today. I want to share them with you without going into too much detail. These are not in any particular order as great fortunes have been made in each one. nor do I recommend you pick one and limit yourself to it. My fortune has been made by diversifying into each of these areas and I still look for opportunities in each. But if one of these opportunities is more easily available to you right now, by all means get started.

  1. Ideas – One of the best ways to become wealthy is have a great idea and develop it. You’ll notice I did say develop it. There are many great ideas out there that never become profitable because there was no action attached to it. I recently read that the average person has approximately six ideas that could become a million-dollar enterprise each year. The challenge again is that most people don’t do anything with these ideas.  To make money in the idea developing category you will need to learn how to do the following or get support in the following areas: Development, distribution, Licensing and sales. You may even need to look into manufacturing yourself to get started. Developing an idea can mean a lot of money for you if it’s done right.Business – Owning or operating a business can be one of the most rewarding activities existing. But if you speak to the average entrepreneur you will also find that it can be one of the most frustrating. Along with the opportunity to create your own paycheck you also assume all the risk and challenge of running the business.  Yet if you stick with and learn systems that help you create success you can do very well. In addition to creating a business there are opportunities to purchase an existing business, get involved in franchising, or even partner with others.
  2. Business – Owning or operating a business can be one of the most rewarding activities existing. But if you speak to the average entrepreneur you will also find that it can be one of the most frustrating. Along with the opportunity to create your own paycheck you also assume all the risk and challenge of running the business.  Yet if you stick with and learn systems that help you create success you can do very well. In addition to creating a business there are opportunities to purchase an existing business, get involved in franchising, or even partner with others.
  3. Investing – Investing when done correctly can make a lot for money for you. All investment however will come with some degree of risk. I always encourage our students to invest in things they understand or have experience with. There are many investment products available and many qualified professionals who can help you find investments that will work best for you. Often safe investing is a relatively slow and steady way to become wealthy. However there are many high risk opportunities as well that can generate higher returns in a shorter amount of time. In the category of investments we can include registered investments like stocks, shares,bonds, RRSp, 401K, GIC, Mutual funds and more. In this category we can also include private investment, which can include investment into businesses directly or real estate.
  4. Lastly, I have chosen to list real estate as a separate category apart from investment. The reason I have chosen to do so is that often real estate involves purchasing a tangible asset. (Which is quick different than developing an idea or buying a mutual fund.) It is generally thought that real estate is a very safe bet for investors, but this isn’t always the case as we discovered in 2008. Even with the challenges of the recession real estate is still a very safe bet considering that the market values always seem to restore themselves over time.  There are several ways to invest and make money in real estate. This can include everything from ‘flipping’ properties to owning rental properties. Most people initially think of residential properties first when it comes to real estate investing, but a great deal of money can be made in commercial real estate as well. And it is often easier to get involved than most people think.

While we haven’t been able to go into deep detail in each of this categories on this short blog post it is my hope that you would look deeper into each of these areas as I have made quite a bit of money personally in each area and I know they work.
