How to overcome fear of criticism in your international organization?  One method I’ve found to work best for me and my time was to create a Mastermind Alliance.

The Mastermind principle consist of an alliance of two or more minds working in perfect harmony for the attainment of a common definite objective.

No two minds ever come together without a third invisible force, which may be likened to a “third mind”. When a group of individual minds are coordinated and function in harmony, the increased energy created through that alliance become available to every individual in the group. No man can become a permanent success without taking others along with him.

“Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve.” Napoleon Hill

If you wish to gain more understanding of this principle I’d highly recommend you read the book Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. I’m living proof that Napoleon Hills teaching are very effective.

Now go out there apply these strategies, create value, understand your customers need and keep repeating till you grow your business.

One of the biggest obstacles in becoming an entrepreneur is fear. Think you are not afraid? Do you keep searching for the right opportunity but just can’t find the perfect deal? That’s fear. Your aversion to risk keeps you in constant analysis and research. This is commonly referred to as analysis paralysis. When this happens, you may end up doing nothing. Don’t let fear or perfection paralyze you.

Matt Clark, our featured entrepreneur guest these last few blogs, has this to say about perfection:

When trying to develop the “entrepreneur mindset” you must stop trying to be perfect. Frequently, if you haven’t achieved a goal it’s because you’re trying to do the perfect action or take the perfect path to achieving that goal.

The problem with this is that you don’t know what the perfect path is or else you would have already taken it. Being perfect leads to the perfect way to fail… doing nothing. The only way to make sure that you get anything done is by not trying to be perfect. Instead focus on taking action. Take that leap of faith, or take a lot of little hops of faith.

Don’t reflect too much on whether what you’re doing is perfect. If you experience a setback, the fastest way to get back on your feet emotionally is to take more action.

When you start taking action, and you stop reflecting on whether that action is perfect, you stop reflecting on your current situation. In order to take that new action, you actually have to focus on it, which means that your focus is not on the negatives of the current situation or how much stuff you have that you don’t like or don’t want. Your focus is on actually doing those new, positive action items.

Matt is right. Perfection is the enemy of motion. Perfection stops entrepreneurship. That is not to say there is no need for setting high standards and going out and achieving them. What we are saying is that too much focus on being perfect leads to inaction and focusing on the wrong things. Too much focus on perfection is usually a subconscious focus born out of fear.

You have your left brain—the logical, analytical, practical side of your world – which is usually where the need to be perfect lives. And you have your right brain—the creative, innovative, intuitive part of your world. And then you have the physical, the spiritual, and everything in between. Rising to meet your financial dreams takes all of it. It takes all of you. Just be careful not to let the desire for perfection ruin your dream of being an entrepreneur.

In Robert Kiyosaki  book, Increase Your Financial IQ,  He wrote about the four economic ages of humanity.

THEY ARE:

The Hunter-Gatherer Age:

In the Hunter-Gatherer Age, humans relied on nature to provide wealth. They were nomadic and went where the hunting was good and the vegetation plentiful. You had to know how to hunt and to gather—or you died. For the hunter-gatherer, the tribe was social security. Socio-economically, everyone was even. They were all poor.

The Agrarian Age:

The Agrarian Age saw the rise of classes between people. Due to the development of technology to plant and cultivate the land, those who owned the land became royalty, and those who worked it became peasants. The royals rode horses while the peasants walked. Socio-economically there were two groups, the rich and the poor.

The Industrial Age:

While many people would place the beginning of the Industrial Age in the 1800s with the rise of factories, I actually think of it as beginning in 1492 with Columbus. When Columbus struck out to find the New World, it was to find new sources of valuable resources such as oil, copper, tin, and rubber. During this time the value of real estate shifted from growing crops to providing resources. This led to the land becoming even more valuable. And three classes emerged: the rich, the middle-class, and the poor.

The Information Age:

Today, we are in the Information Age, where information leveraged by technology and inexpensive resources like silicon produce wealth. This means that the price of getting wealthy has gone down. For the first time in history, wealth is available to just about everyone. There are now four groups of people: the poor, the middle-class, the rich, and the super rich.

Today, there are many ways to get rich in the Information Age, and many people are. But the real question is how do you get super rich?

This morning I read about Jack Dorsey, the co-founder of the payment processing company, Square, in Fast Company. (http://m.fastcompany.com/3033412/back-to-square-one)

The article is a fascinating read and shows the collision between old, industrial age ways of thinking and new, Information Age ways of thinking.

It’s also a playbook for getting super rich in the Information Age.

Moving from transactions to transformation

Just a few years ago, Square was considered the darling of the Silicon Valley start-up scene. Dorsey himself, with a sharp design eye and grand ambitions has been compared to Steve Jobs.

The company’s core business was and is collecting a small percentage of the transactions they help process, primarily for small businesses – a hard business to be in. It takes a lot of transactions to make a profit. As Austin Carr writes:

“Making money from payments processing is a bit like building a business by selling soda simply for the bottle deposit: It takes a lot of effort just to convert a $1 bottle of Coke into a nickel return, and only in extreme bulk can those nickels start to add up. More troubling, with Square’s business, the majority of those nickels go to the financial intermediaries it works with. At every swipe, Square takes its small cut of the transaction price, but 70% (or more) of that fee often goes to Visa, MasterCard, and other institutions that handle risk and fraud detection, as well as card-member rewards and services.”

This has led some people to criticize the company and its founder, Dorsey, saying it was desperately looking for an exit and would have to make some hard choices.

The criticism, however, is directed at the company’s current business model, a model that Dorsey says is simply Step 1 in a much grander vision to harness the vast amounts of data Square collects to build add-on products that move beyond payment processing – and provide higher margins.

As Carr writes, “Dorsey understood payments processing couldn’t be the endgame. ‘We always knew it was not our core business,’ he says. ‘We knew the real business was around the data.'”

Whether Carr’s company will be successful in its grand ambitions is still unknown, but one thing is clear: It will be the difference between a moderately successful transaction company and a game-changing product company – between being rich and being super rich.

Fight or Flight

The real difference between Dorsey and others who would be content with a safe, moderately successful company is courage.

“With any challenge,” Dorsey is quoted in the article, “there’s a fight-or-flight psychological reaction: You either continue to fight, or you go away.”

As Carr points out, Dorsey has chosen to fight. If he succeeds, that will be the reason why he’ll be super rich while others are simply rich.

What are you fighting for?

The reality is that we all probably won’t have the opportunity to be super rich in this life (though you may!) But we all have the opportunity to improve our situations today – to continue to grow and never settle, to fight.

The question is, what are you going to fight for to make your tomorrow better than it is today?

This is an article written by Robert Kiyosaki about financial education. Sit back and enjoy the reading.

I grew up in Hilo on the Big Island in Hawaii. Hilo is a sugar town, or at least it was, and there was a divide among the rich plantation owners and the plantation workers. The divide was more than just income. Even the schools were divided. The poor kids of the plantation workers went to Hilo Union Elementary School and the rich kids of the plantation owners went to Riverside School—these schools were literally across the road from each other.

When I was nine years old, we moved across the street into a small rambler by Riverside School. My dad was the Head of Education for the State of Hawaii, and when we moved, I was able to attend Riverside School instead of Hilo Union Elementary School. For the first time in my life, I felt poor.

Though my dad was highly educated and was a great government employee, he had a low financial intelligence and wasn’t very good with money. As a result, we were always struggling. As a kid at Hilo Union Elementary School, I didn’t know the difference—everyone was poor. But once I started going to Riverside School, it quickly became apparent that my family was poor and that the kids I went to school with were rich.

At a young age, I knew I wanted to be rich. I saw my parents struggle and the stress it brought, and I knew that wasn’t for me. I wanted to buy nice things, be generous, and enjoy life worry free.

When I told my rich dad, my best friend’s dad who was a successful businessman, that I wanted to be rich, he asked, “How do you think you become rich?”

“You make a lot of money,” I said confidently.

“That’s partially correct,” my rich dad said. “But you can make a lot of money and still not be rich.” He went on to explain how some employees and self-employed people made a lot of money but weren’t rich because they had low financial intelligence. They lost most of their wealth to high taxes and by purchasing liabilities.

That was too much for my young brain to comprehend. I just knew I wanted to make a lot of money. But now that I’m older and hopefully wiser, I understand what my rich dad meant. Money doesn’t make you rich. Your financial intelligence does.

That’s why our mantra at Rich Dad is Knowledge is the New Money.

A recent article I read in Fortune Magazine entitled “Why the ‘rich’ aren’t feeling so rich”, highlights further what I mean by this. The article’s author, Shawn Tully, invented a term that is catching on—HENRY. It’s an acronym for “High Earners, Not Rich Yet”. What Tully is getting at is that those we’d consider rich because they make a lot of money, such as doctors and lawyers making $250,000 to $500,000, aren’t really rich at all.

Why?

Because they lose so much money to taxes, their income is based on the services they provide rather than passive income from investments, and they spend their money on liabilities like homes instead of on assets that produce cash flow.

As Tully writes, “When my story appeared, just before the presidential election, Barack Obama was targeting the HENRYs for big tax increases, declaring that families making over $250,000 a year were ‘the rich’ and needed to ‘pay their fair share.’ Even then, I argued, the HENRYs were so squeezed between their big expenses for the things they considered staples — private schools and day care for the kids, for example — and an immense tax burden that typically took $100,000 from a $350,000 income, that they not only weren’t rich, but stood little chance of ever saving the big nest egg to qualify as truly wealthy.”

This is something I talk about in my book Conspiracy of the Rich: The 8 New Rules of Money. There are four things that steal your wealth: Taxes, Debt, Inflation, and Retirement. People who make a lot of money aren’t necessarily rich because they lose so much of it to those four forces.

Here’s an example. Let’s say we have two people who both earn $100,000. One pays 20 percent in taxes, has a crippling mortgage, and saves money in a 401(k) that barely keeps up with inflation. The other pays nothing in taxes, owns rental properties that provide passive income that adjusts with inflation, and has a plan to use that passive income to purchase more passive income investments. Who’s richer? It’s possible to make a lot of money and use the forces of taxes, debt, inflation, and retirement for your benefit—but it takes high financial intelligence.

Here’s the fundamental problem for ‘the rich’, high-income employees: They have the highest tax burden, the lowest control over their retirement, and can sell only their time.

My CASHFLOW Quadrant explains this simply. There are four types of people: Employees (E’s), Self-Employed (S’s), Big Business Owners (B’s), and Investors (I’s). The E’s and S’s are on the left side of the CASHFLOW Quadrant and the B’s and I’s are on the right side of the quadrant. Those on the left side pay the most in taxes, have the least control, and will never be truly rich. These are people like blue-collar employees but also people like doctors and lawyers who are self-employed but really don’t own a company—they own a job. They are victims to the four wealth-stealing forces.

Those on the right side, however, have all the tax advantages; have control over their money, business, and investments; and have the possibility of infinite returns because they know how to create money out of thin air through passive income. And they know how to use Taxes, Debt, Inflation, and Retirement to make them even richer—not poorer. If you want to learn more about the CASHFLOW Quadrant, I encourage you to read my book CASHFLOW Quadrant: Rich Dad’s Guide to Financial Freedom.

To be on the right side of the CASHFLOW Quadrant, you need a high financial intelligence. That means you need to continually increase your financial education. Read books, attend seminars, network with like-minded individuals, and change your mindset.

You can be truly rich, not just part of the HENRYs. Don’t settle for making a lot of money. Increase your financial IQ and become truly rich.

This is an article written by Kim Kiyosaki who personally owns more than 10 thousand properties and rental unities. In This article she will cover how to create a plan to overcome your financial problems.

When Robert and I were younger, we didn’t have a lot of money. At the time, we were living paycheck to paycheck. Even though we were making very little money at the time, we decided in order to have any kind of financial future we had to take tangible steps toward that future.

So, the first thing we did was hire our bookkeeper, Betty. We did this because we knew how easy it would be to lie to ourselves about our financial situation, hoping that our money problems would work themselves out. We wanted real accountability! (No pun intended).

Betty helped us see our finances for what they really were. The first thing we realized was that we were not putting aside anything for our future. Every penny we made was going towards our bills.

So, we decided to pay ourselves first and then pay our creditors. That is when we came up with the 10/10/10 plan.

Every month we took 30 percent from our paychecks and divvied it up like so:

10% Investment

Each month we set aside 10 percent of our income for great opportunities. My first $5,000 investment in a little rental house in Portland was paid just this way.

10% Savings

Each month we set aside 10 percent of our income for emergencies and special opportunities.

10% Charity or Tithing

And each month we set aside 10 percent of our income for giving to charity or tithing because we believe in giving back and that you must give in order to receive.

After we paid those accounts, only then did we pay our creditors.

Betty, of course, said, “You can’t do that! You have to pay your bills. How will you survive?”

Our solution was to pay something every month to some, not all creditors. Sometimes even less than they asked for. It’s not that we didn’t pay our bills; we just did so creatively. Believe me, we were on the phone a lot! And always, we made sure to pay ourselves first.

It’s important to understand that the concept of pay yourself first isn’t about treating yourself to new shoes or a luxurious trip to the spa. No! It’s about taking care of your financial future. And it takes a lot of discipline and planning.

But then again, if it were a piece of cake, everyone would do it.

I recently spoke at a large event in Las Vegas. After the event I met a young man named Matt Clark. Matt has built two multi-million dollar companies from scratch and he is not even thirty yet. I was so impressed with his success at such a young age I wanted to sit down and talk with him. I was not financially free until my 40’s and that was with the teachings of rich dad. Had business changed at all from my day as a start-up?

Matt attended one of the top entrepreneur colleges. When I was young there was no such thing. The university taught Matt about customer service, brand-building, operations, finance, accounting, marketing, etc. But Matt said that’s not really where he learned the most. The best education he received was by actually going out there and just doing it. Matt’s best teacher was experience. That hasn’t changed since my day. Nothing teaches better than going out there and just doing it.

I asked Matt what advise he would give to an entrepreneur just starting out. He said that after building and starting two multi-million dollar companies and talking with lots of very successful entrepreneurs along the way, there are three fundamentals that, if any entrepreneur implements into his or her business, will increase the likelihood of creating a fun, profitable business immeasurably:

  1. High Margins
  2. Recurring Revenue
  3. Measurement

High Margins

For a successful business, not one in which you’re scraping by, you should shoot for a 500% or more markup on the products or services you sell. Matt struggled for many, many months operating a business with only 30-40% profit margin. It wasn’t until he started selling his own brand of private-labeled products with a 600% margin, that he really began to experience the level of profitability a small business needs to survive.

Recurring Revenue

Matt’s second fundamental is recurring revenue. This is one of those business mindsets that become more and more powerful with time. Recurring revenue can be a subscription model business or a business that that sells an add-on product. Matt uses the example of the Keurig coffee brewer and the little K-cups you HAVE to buy each and every time you want to use the machine.

If you implement a recurring revenue component right now into your business, you’re only going to get those same people re-billing next month – nice, but that’s not the big payoff. But, if you keep it up, continually adding more and more recurring customers each and every month, 6 months, 1 year, 2 years down the road, you’ll have more than your company is making now on AUTO-PAY.

Matt is right. The recurring model does not make you an overnight success but if you keep at it, it can be very profitable. I’ve found the key to recurring revenue is quality. You are only as good as your last customer experience. Rich Dad just started our Insiders subscription model. I know that if I do not deliver quality lessons and insights ever week the Insiders members will stop paying. My team’s job and my job is to keep delivering quality.

Measurement

Lastly, measurement is a MUST for any business of any size. For any business, online or offline, if you’re spending money on advertising, your business will never experience the gigantic leaps in growth a profitable advertising campaign can produce if you are not measuring.

What Matt calls measuring I call feedback. Feedback comes through results, through listening to customers and through the numbers you get when you measure. Being in business is not a hobby where you do what makes you feel good. You need to get the numbers, know how to read the numbers and adjust based on what the numbers are telling you.

I asked Matt about the importance of your businesses’ mission. He looked at me with a smirk and said, “that’s a given.” I knew I liked this kid.
