It's November 2016 two days before Thanksgiving and Donald Trump is president elect of the United States. For me that doesn't have any baring but according to the many protests, crazy social media posts, people talking about leaving the country...Clearly people are really shaken up. At the end of the day, I know that America's core is capitalism and as long as you're on the right side there is nothing to worry about.
I've heard people say that since Trump is a business man perhaps he's the best person for the job. I'm not sure if that logic holds true, what I will say though, more people are now talking about starting their own business now than they ever have before. See, it's assumed that republicans in general, not just Trump, are more about, build your own economy or else. My attitude my whole life has been, build my one economy or else, perhaps that's why I don't share that collective sense of anxiety with the rest of the country. Nevertheless, if you are...finally ready to take the plunge into the abyss known as entrepreneurship how do you know which option is right for you.
When it comes to business opportunities and options there is no shortage of them in the U.S and the world over for that matter, but just like a good pair of running shoes, it's all about fit. I've always been an entrepreneur, I mean, since I was old enough to push a lawn mower or wield a rake or snow shovel I've been trying to be my own man. Nothing really changed when I entered adulthood. From real estate and other traditional businesses to practically all of the network marking companies you can think of I've been trying like hell to build a strong passive and residual income so I can buy my time back. Some might suggest that I've failed many times over, but in reality every shortcoming in those other endeavors prepared my for the right opportunity, the one that "fit!"
Why a Financial Education Franchise?
When considering a business of any kind there are obviously some fundamental things that must be considered. First and foremost is the product or service in demand, can it be offered at an affordable price and can it be delivered in a convenient manner. For me a financial education franchise answered all of these questions with a resounding YES! As long as the school system in America continue to omit financial literacy from the curriculum, financial education will always be in demand. Below are just a few other reasons that I personally found a financial education franchise to be a good fit for me. If any of these resonate with you leave me a comment, I'd love to hear your thoughts.
Reason #1 - I needed financial education in my life personally. While I've always known I'd eventually be a success in business I had no real clue about how money really works in this country. So to find a company that taught real wealth building principles and strategies that I could using in my personal life and develop a business with was a true blessing.
Reason #2 - My children have watched me work a business in addition to my job all of their lives but the one reason I couldn't go full time in my own business because I couldn't figure out how to make money work for me. Now my children see and are inspired by their dad as a full time business owner and they can see the difference that a business makes vs a job as a result all of my children will be entrepreneurs.
Reason #3 - Low initial start-up and monthly fee. I didn't have a couple hundred thousand dollars laying around for a traditional franchise nor was I in position to walk away from my job and run a business full-time without an income to sustain my family while I was getting the business off the ground. I needed something that I could build along side my job and this franchise allowed me to do just that until October 3, 2016 which is the date that I officially retired from corporate America because of this opportunity.
Reason #4 - It was time! Time for me to maximize my God given potential, time for me to go all out for my dreams, time to STOP procrastinating and wasting time with people and things that were not helping or supporting me in the achievement of my dreams and goals. Time to deliver on my promise to my wife, to give her the world! It's was time for me to make some serious changes in my life and stop running from my destiny.
I don't know if a financial education franchise is right for you or not, if you want to take a look at the company that I'm involved with and how you can partner with me simply click here or on the image below. Otherwise, if a financial education franchise is not for you, keep searching for the opportunity that is.
Capitalism to some people is a dirty word but the truth about capitalism is that it's just a tool similar to money. Capitalism is neither good or evil the person using the tool of capitalism decides to use it for evil or for good. Check out my thoughts in this short video on capitalism in America.

As we wrap up 2016 I'm still baffled at the number of working class Americans that DON'T have a home based business. The internet, google, youtube with all of this information at our fingertips surely you can find something that you do that you can turn into a business. What most Americans need to understand is that the foundation of this country is capitalism and it you're not on the right side of capitalism you're going to struggle financially, there's no easy way to say it.
Having a home based business allows you to take full advantage of the number 1 wealth building tool in the world...the U.S. Tax Code. See that code was written for business people, by business people and if you don't have a business you're going to pay the more of your hard earn income to uncle Sam than you have to.
So if you're considering a home based business why not one that will actually make an impact. Consider a business in the financial education space where you can learn real wealth building principles and strategies to apply in your own life that you can teach your children, but also earn hefty commissions teaching others as well.

Comment and share if this made any sense to you.
Call it a fluke, call it an upset, call it disappointing, call it what you want but whatever you call it…Donald J Trump is President Elect of the United States. I’m not exactly sure why that seems to strike so much fear into the hearts and minds of the American people in particular those Americans that obviously wanted Hilary Clinton or someone else to assume the responsibilities of commander and chief. Is it because he’s arrogant? Maybe it’s because he isn’t as well-spoken as other candidates. Is it because he doesn’t have the political experience of a typical presidential candidate? I don’t really know why people are afraid but here’s my two cents on why you shouldn’t be.
As a future billionaire, yes you read that right, I watch closely the actions of actual billionaires and successful people in general. As far back as I can remember, every interview I’ve ever seen of Donald Trump he’s always being ask if he’d run for president. It seems to me as though someone has wanted this man to be president for a long time. In all the early interviews it was always a strong no, but as I continued to watch over the years that positioned changed and now here we are. In what seemed like the longest presidential campaign ever Donald Trump beat out Hillary Clinton to secure his seat at the White House and as Head of the free world. Why am I not afraid? In a word CAPITALISM.
Let’s remember people that America was founded as a capitalistic democracy. Since capitalism is at the foundation this nation it doesn’t really matter who the president is because capitalism will ALWAYS reign supreme. That’s why I don’t fear a Donald Trump presidency and you shouldn’t either. Unless, of course, you find yourself on the wrong side of capitalism and plan on staying there. The American free enterprise system rigged but at the same time fair. It’s rigged in the sense that all the rules, regulations and benefits favor the business owner. However, it’s because anyone in America can become a business owner and reap all the benefits of any other business owner no matter how big or small the enterprise. That’s CAPITALISM and that’s why I don’t fear Donald Trump as president.
You may be thinking to yourself, “I don’t know how to run a business.” My friend you don’t have to know how to run a business to get on the right side of capitalism you just have to OWN a business. This where most people get lost. We tend to confuse a business owner with the person that runs the business. While many business owners do run their own businesses, most don’t have to if they don’t want to and there are millions of people that own pieces of a business and will never run the company that they own, that’s call the stock market. So I don’t fear Trump as president because I’m an entrepreneur and since capitalism is the foundation of this company whoever the president is, they will always ensure that the business owners and entrepreneurs are in position to win.
In closing, if you have fear of Trump as president you my friend need to get on the right side of capitalism. As an employee you’ll get one paycheck each pay period. As a business owner you can get a pieces of many paychecks each pay period. So the right side of capitalism is as an owner/producer vs. an everyday consumer. We’ve all been blessed by the creator with special gifts and abilities, many of which can be turned into a business enterprise to put us on the right side of capitalism. You’ll position yourself to capitalize off the knowledge, skills and abilities that you possess and thus get yourself on the right side of capitalism.
