    93. Transforming a Successful Career Into a Quest to do Something that REALLY Matters

    93. Transforming a Successful Career Into a Quest to do Something that REALLY Matters

    Bill Nussey shows how he made the transition from a successful software entrepreneur to a clean energy pioneer on this episode of The Prosperity Perspective.
    An original venture capitalist, Bill was well versed in growing big fast, with exit opportunities measured in growth rather than cash flow. While the race against his competitors was ongoing, Bill found the opportunity to sell his stock to eager investors. Despite others’ conviction to hold on to the company because it would continue to grow, Bill took the check and it “was one of the most powerful, freeing moments” of his life. 
    Be inspired today to look less at the cash flow and more on your purpose of continuing to run a business. Decide to invest in what matters most to you–like Bill’s kids’ college education–and gain financial freedom by deciding not to spend the money but save it with the means of making an impact. 
    Finally, get the insight into Bill’s life conviction to look bigger than yourself and find true purpose in your career. After his exit, Bill’s wife told him to get a job to keep the “fire under his ass” and it was the best prompting she could have given. By giving personally to charitable organizations, Bill wakes up every day with the passion and desire to “keep making money so [he] can keep giving it away!”

    3 Key Takeaways
    How taking some money off the table and investing it in his family's future gave him the freedom to take more risks.How Bill and his wife decided to give away most of the money they made from his business exit, and how that has been rewarding for them both.It’s okay to have a plan B! It gives you the freedom to ensure what matters is taken care of.

    91. This Financial Guru Escaped a Cult and Made Millions

    After escaping a cult and becoming a liquid millionaire by 26, Jerremy Newsome lost it all three times. Today, he's gained success and is here on The Prosperity Perspective to teach future world leaders how to create wealth using the stock market.
    Hear about “the three straws that broke the camel’s back” for Jerremy including the painful realization that he lost all of his money (and borrowed money) in his 20s and the passing of his business partner during a crucial financial time period. Despite these devastating times, Jerremy used his failures to learn more about investment. He shares his hard earned wisdom with you today on why you shouldn’t jump into an entirely new strategy without ample years of research and a clear understanding of margin before you use it. 
    Also gain insight into your potential to create change in nations by listening to Jerremey’s vision to help other countries gain greater financial literacy. He explains his 90-day program that will give people access to a hundred thousand dollars to trade with in the end. He plans to offer his program to Honduras, Haiti, parts of the US, and parts of other countries. His vision: “If you have the internet, you have income, and you’re educated, the world starts changing.”


    3 Key Takeaways
    Pay yourself first. This will help you get started on the right foot financially and ensure you’re prioritizing your long-term financial health.Invest in yourself; don’t let past failures dictate your worth as an entrepreneur or human in general. For Jerremy, giving himself the credit he deserved was game-changing.Focus on being self-full, not selfish. Jerremy will explain how the two are not the same–and one is far more helpful than the other.

    89. Create An Automatic 6-Figure Real Estate Investing Business

    89. Create An Automatic 6-Figure Real Estate Investing Business

    Guest Dustin Heiner brings a new spin to the old analogy: “Teach your students how to fish, because you can duplicate it over and over in as many cities as you want.” 
    After getting laid off and facing the terrifyingly unclear future of caring for his family, Dustin decided to become an investor. In 6 years, he expanded from one to over 30 properties, each of which are making him $250-400 a month.
    His mission today is to help as many people as he can to learn how to invest properly so they can obtain financial freedom. One of the most important components to understand: It’s not YOUR job to become an expert in the location you’re investing in. If you want to work 30 minutes a month, it’s about finding the REAL experts of the area and hiring them on–teaching your fish–to manage your business. 
    Each property owns inventory. You don’t open an empty convenience store and set out a box of candy bars–the same goes for real estate. Build each business BEFORE you buy the inventory so that you know exactly who will be managing, financing, and repairing your property ahead of time. 
    Gain the full explanation and more of Dustin’s first-hand insights on this episode of The Prosperity Perspective podcast.  


    3 Key Takeaways
    Your value doesn't come from your job! Stop associating yourself that way and instead do what lies in your passion.If you’re investing in real estate, it’s not your job to become an expert about the new area. Instead, ask the true experts and hire one of them to run the business for you. You want to buy the business BEFORE you buy the inventory. Likewise, if you’re buying a property, you’re going to want to know who will manage, finance, and care for it before you start.

    88. Redeploy Your Best Asset Wisely

    88. Redeploy Your Best Asset Wisely

    Today’s guest visits The Prosperity Perspective from the other side of the pond; Phil Blows brings his insights as crypto expert and founder of AQRU in London, a company that manages 8 different crypto-related businesses within it. 
    Learn where we are on the crypto adoption curve right now from someone who knows about it, such as how it will become not a replacement but be complementary to our currency system. Educate yourself on this currency that “will increasingly become a part of the average portfolio,” including why 99 percent of the 70,000 available bitcoins will not be worth investing in when you look under the hood. 
    Phil also shares his experience moving from being an employee to running his own company and the fears that came with it. He explains why he’s glad to have taken his time to the age of 26 to launch his company because he needed the knowledge and confidence that comes with years of experience. Get his strategic thinking about where to redeploy the assets they made and his number one advice to entrepreneurs looking to begin their crypto venture.  


    3 Key Takeaways
    Don’t focus on the money you can gain from a startup. Instead, focus on doing what makes you truly passionate and the money will follow. If you start a business and end up as an employee again, you HAVEN’T wasted your time. Companies are more likely to hire someone who founded a business from scratch because of the experience gained. Your time is your most valuable asset. Don’t waste it doing things that other team members could do better. In other words, do what you do best.
