Over the course of the last few years I have spoken to over 10,000 people, and while the Facebook Secrets to Wealth page has over 23,000 fans, we get a lot of people who ask similar or even the same questions. In order to address those in one place your will find the Frequently Asked Questions, or FAQ’s below. I will continually update this page so that more and more questions can be answered.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Wht 2 do?

One of the first things to do is to change the way you write. U cnnt wrt lik dis. You are in effect teaching your brain to become lazy! By using the least amount of effort in order to produce the least amount of letters, you are instructing your brain that it is "okay" to do as little as possible. Wealth is about doing the right things in the right way. The way you write as well as speak has a direct impact on your ability to create wealth. In short: Shortcuts don't work, and won't work for creating wealth.

What is wealth?

It is not just money. In short, it is having more than what you need. It is about creating a lot more in life than money. In addition to your money, your wealth also affects your time, your health and the people around you!

Although this site is focused on assisting you with the knowledge to create "more than enough" money, you will be able to learn all the things that affect (or have an impact on) your money.

I don't have a job.

Not having a job is a situation - it is neither a condition nor a good excuse. Entrepreneurs also don't have a job - they create jobs for themselves.

Not having a job is not a reason to not become wealthy. You have to do things to change your situation...

You can either: 

a)  Read "30 Tips to Find your Perfect Job,' or 
b)  Create your own job, or
c)  Do nothing!

You have to:

  1. Make a choice: Do nothing, or do something, and
  2. Take action - do something about it.
I don't have any money.

People often fail to start creating wealth because they believe that "it takes money to make money." When you have read Does it really take money to make money you will find that this simply is not true.

Not having any money is okay. Not making any effort to change this situation is not okay.

You simply have to educate yourself about money in order to get more of it. You can read any of the latest articles or start by learning about creating wealth.

How can I earn more money?

There are a few ways in which you can earn more money.

The secret is that earning more is not necessarily related to asking for a raise.

The first way to earn more money is to become more valuable. You become more valuable by investing in yourself. You have to educate yourself. You have to become better skilled and better equipped - and you cannot expect that someone else has to give it to you. You have to do it for yourself.

The second way to earn more money is to create passive income. You can sell a product, own a stock portfolio, buy a property to rent out, or invest in a business. But don't be fooled:

Secret: Many people lose more money because they jump straight into business, investing or stocks without attaining the proper knowledge from the results-proven industry experts first.

I am in the process of writing a thorough article on this for you. In the meantime I recommend learning the 7 steps to financial freedom.

Help! No matter what I do - I remain poor!

Well done! You have taken the first step, which is to realize that you have not been successful with your efforts - so far! And, you are reading this, which means you are interested in making a change. Good for you!

The reason you remain poor is because you have done the wrong things, in the wrong way for the right reason. Great intentions don't make you wealthy - great approaches do.

You have to do the right things in the right way: You first have to learn the 7 steps to financial freedom, and then how and to pay yourself first. Naturally, there are a few more things to do, and I will write articles for them also, but these two mentioned articles will get your mindset right to begin the process of creating wealth.

I can barely survive on what I have!

What you are actually asking is: "How the heck can I become wealthy if I don't make it financially as it is!" There are a couple of reasons for this:

Secret: If you don't believe that you can make a change - you are right. If you do believe that you can make a change - you are right also!

Your mind operates on being right, so you have to convince it that what you want to do is possible. First, you have to change what you believe to be possible. If you do not believe it is possible, your mind will prioritize your actions under "not possible, and thus not do-able." You can also read why beliefs are important for creating wealth.

Second, you have to have a good reason to want to change your financial situation.

Secret: If it is not important to you, you will not even attempt to change your situation.

The way that you make things important is by identifying your values.

Secret: Your values are your reasons.

You will see from the article "Why having values can make difficult choices easy" that your values will determine what you will do, and make it easier to do also.

Once you are convinced that you can do this, and have a reason why you want to do this, you can start by:

a) Reducing your expenses, and/or
b) Increasing your value, and/or
c) Increasing your income.

I will write more articles for you on these topics in the next few months.

People owe me money - how can I get it back?

If you ask around you will find that almost everyone has at some point lent out their money to someone, and still haven't received it back.

Secret: Money has certain rules that, once broken, are quite a challenge to fix! Your challenge is to learn these rules, and then not to break them again.

If you are reading this it is highly likely that you have already broken a few rules - that you didn't even knew were rules! I will write a lot more rules for your money in the next few months, but right now, you have to learn the 3 Rules for Better Lending and Less chasing of your money.

I would like to read more - which books do you recommend?
