10,000 years ago families were fighting over caves as a place to keep their family warm and store their wealth. The world was simpler, you were born, you learned to hunt, to fish, to farm, you gathered food, you stored it and you shared it with those closest to you.
You just lived, and everything you knew, you learned by imitation and instinct.
Fast forward to today and some things remain exactly the same: you need a roof, you need to build wealth for your future. But other things have gotten more complicated. You can’t swap 10 cows for a house – you can’t even buy a house without a lawyer.
The way we learn has also changed. I guarantee you didn’t learn how to use Instagram by imitating your grandad. The world has got so large, knowledge so freely available, that we have 1,000s of choices of who to imitate, who to trust, who to follow.
You could shadow an investor, interview your family members and friends who have built wealth successfully – and you should! But what is better than learning? Getting handed a plan.
It starts at your beginning – wherever you are right now. It ends with you being able to retire from your income worries, whether that is a job or your own business and live comfortably from your property investment portfolio.
Because homeownership and property investment is the cave we still need. If you are able to save money – you have the starting foundations required to build your family a shelter and maybe a rental income too.
