Earn Money Without Working So Hard For It – With Real Estate November 13, 2008

There seem to be two types of people in the world: office slaves who very nearly treat work as a religion and who are in danger of neglecting the very families for whom they work so hard to provide; and people who have adopted more of a slacker mentality, convincing themselves that money isn’t important because they don’t want to be slaves to the workaday world.

Robert Kiyosaki, author of the Rich Dad book series, has money and he doesn’t agree. “Anyone who says money isn’t important obviously has not been without it long,” he says in his book “Cash Flow Quadrant.”

Kiyosaki should know– he’s been on both sides of the financial fence. In the ’80s, he was so down-and-out that he spent a few weeks living in a car, before moving on to the basement of a friend, in which he lived for almost a year. He and his wife didn’t have steady work, only odd jobs here and there, as they were looking for riches, not security.

Today, Robert Kiyosaki and his wife are millionaires.

While money is important, it isn’t important in and of itself, and that is why Kiyosaki and his wife didn’t rush out to look for the “good” jobs they both could have gotten. It’s important because it provides for your basic needs and, if you have enough of it, it can give you time to be with your loved ones and do the things in life that truly make you happy.

One thing a job will never give you is extra time with loved ones. In fact, it will take away as much of that precious time as you allow it to.

At times it seems like a no-win situation; it takes so long to make the money you need in order to get what you want out of life that you’ll never actually have the time to do the things you’ve always dreamed of. As an employee, this really can be an unanswerable problem; as an investor with money working for you, it’s much easier to keep your priorities in order.

Kiyosaki has been there. In his words, “Money is important, but I did not want to spend my life working for it.” When standing at this fork in the road, the wisdom that Kiyosaki gained from his time with his “Rich Dad” served him well.

He knew the secret to taking care of a family without having to devote one’s entire life to one’s work, and that secret is MN real estate investing.

It’s a simple principle; as an employee, you’re working for money, but an investor, money works for you. All you have to do to start out is take some of the money you’ve made as an employer and move it into real estate. This is all it takes to start paving the way to a bright financial future, in which your wealth is constantly growing without you having to lift a finger, leaving you free to live life and spend time with loved ones.

With real estate investing, you truly can have it both ways, making the money you would be making at a high-paying job (and more!) while your time remains free for… whatever you choose! Take care of your family, begin a new hobby, simply live life without stress and worry.
