Aim to be Wealthy Not Rich | How to Accumulate Wealth

hey guys toby mathis here with infinity investing and a question i get a lot and something i want to address today specifically is whether it's important to be rich or wealthy what is the difference and why it is so important to be wealthy not rich the easy way to look at this is rich is something that's temporary if if we were farming for example rich is having bushels of corn maybe a full silo wealthy is actually owning the farmland and the crops themselves so one thing's going to generate a ton more riches over time so that's the way i look at wealth is wealth is really hard to get rid of because it keeps producing as opposed to rich might be a temporary situation like if i win the lottery then i could be considered rich but i'm not wealthy wealthy is having something that's going to produce income over a long period of time when we teach infinity investing we're almost always focusing on on the crops not on the whatever whatever it's generating the money that comes out of it so we're oftentimes we're focusing in on creating perpetual income streams in the form of dividend producing stocks with the ability to sell options on those same stocks generating multiple types of income there's the dividend stream there's the growth of the stock and there's also the sale of the option so you're making money three different ways uh when you're investing in the stock market or if you're going into real estate you're looking at cash flow we're not so interested in selling the real estate we want that this is again like farmland where we have the farmland and we're growing crops on it and it's producing uh the fruits and the vegetables of the labor right it's producing something that we can sell or live off of you know we can exchange it for money when i say sell think of it like this i can exchange dollar bills for food i can exchange dollar bills for other assets i can change dollar bills for card or something like that like i put for goods and other services that's what i'm looking at so i want to be able to produce something so sometimes i have to produce uh rents sometimes i'm producing dividends sometimes i'm producing short-term capital gains off the sell of an option sometimes i am like having to work and i'm generating uh income off myself but where wealth comes from is having an abundance of kind of the farmlands and the crops that's producing this that i just can't get away from it it's always going to produce even if i run out of money temporarily it's just going to be replenished the next time the harvest comes around right so uh that's the difference between being rich and wealth and then the next question that comes right out of that is hey if i'm young and i don't have a ton of money let's say that one one one viewer wrote in and said hey uh i'm trying to put it put aside about 50 of what i generate which isn't a whole bunch it's hundreds of dollars a month it's not a tremendous amount of money what would i focus in on and what i would focus in on is learning the system and the way you learn to do something is by doing it it's the old nike adage just do it the way you learn to run a business is you run a business the way you learn to invest is you invest the way i learn real estate is i get involved in real estate either on the wholesaling side agent side until i have enough money to where i can be on the landlord side start buying but i need to be involved in that area so what would i do is i would start identifying uh high dividend paying stocks that have some volatility to them in their like we have a whole list that's on our site at infinityinvesting.com of course you can become a free basic member and take a look at these things um but we're always looking at companies that are producing a decent dividend that do have safety growth potential when i look at the dividends by the way i want to see at least 10-year history of increasing those dividends every year which is the profit that's paying out i want it to continue to go up i don't want you know a company that's paying me a dollar a year and in 10 years it's still paying me a dollar a year inflation has made that less valuable i need that dollar to go up every year to a dollar ten then a dollar twenty then a dollar forty then a dollar sixty then you know so in ten years it's paying me out three bucks i don't i want it to have this continuous growth so that i have protection against things like inflation in order to learn and become uh sensitive to all the aspects of investing you need to actually invest so what i do is i would pick one company that you can follow and that you could use as your learning ground and start buying even if it's one share a week of that company maybe it's one share every two weeks continue to accumulate that once you hit 100 shares now we can start selling options against it and generating another income source just by doing that simple thing of hey i'm just going to start accumulating and it might take me a year to accumulate those hundred shares so be it you're going to be learning and you're going to start hearing this company's name you're going to start being sensitive to the information it puts out when you hear things like dividend yield it sounds neat from a hypothetical standpoint but once you actually see this is the impact it makes on me here's what it's paying me oh that's what that means as soon as it starts putting money in your bank account you're going to start going what was that well that's the dividend that paid out his ex dividend date was x and it paid out on this particular date and here's what its cash free flow was and here's what his profitability was and you're like wow that's great now this stuff actually makes sense to me and you're just going to follow that very simple let's accumulate just one company because remember this is learning so i want to buy the one company and focus in on accumulating 100 shares and that means when you have 100 shares it means you can sell one option now and you're selling out of the money option uh at that point and now that will become relevant to you and you might buy it back and sell it again and buy it back selling like there's absolutely a ton of opportunity to generate some extra dollars if you want to spend the time on it so you can absolutely do that that's a great place to start so if what i would tell my daughter which is hey if you want to she's by the way in her 20s but i always say like hey if you want to learn to do something you just do it because it triggers a type of memory is it's there's a uh there's a terminology for it but all of a sudden you start becoming aware of it and whenever you hear it in the news whenever you start seeing things that are relevant to you your brain picks it up whereas opposed you were just completely blind to it so it makes a huge impact on just doing that so that's what i would say to anybody who's just getting started if you want to focus on wealth you're focusing in on the farmland you want to buy things that are going to produce so if i am going to start i'm going to start by buying something very simple stock in the stock mark that is producing the stock market that is producing dividends income on a continuous basis that i still get to see the growth of that company and i can also produce another type of income by selling options against that same company so that's what i'm going to be focusing on so let's go to another question then that we get and this is a very specific question it says hey my spouse and i took a while to get our careers together not uncommon we have a good income now and want to better plan for the future but we have no idea where to start so this is a good place a lot of the info provided seems geared towards starting right after college so a lot of the information that you see in infinity we're talking about a longer time horizon absolutely true we are near 40 we don't have much savings for retirement so no real investments no college funds and a good amount of debt uh are we pretty much screwed in the thought of early retirement no you're absolutely not so let me just explain uh again the infinity theory is that we focus in on how much you spend on a monthly basis so we have our expenses and we're looking at replacing your income the work that you do through assets buying assets that produce that income for you so that you don't have to work so the infinity net worth is how many days i could make it without working right now like if i quit my job or if i stopped working how long would it take to burn through my assets well if i have enough assets that is producing enough income so let's say i i could live off of two thousand dollars a month and i have assets that are producing two thousand dollars a month i will never have to sell any of my assets on because it produces enough income to cover my expenses so you know again using the the analogy if i have crops that produce enough food that i can feed my family then i'm fine and it has enough to where there's a little extra so i could pay the taxes on my property or you know pay any any cost pay for the car pay for things as long as i have enough crop coming in on an annual basis i never have to sell anything i own i just have that crop i'm selling that crop well in our world the crop is really the cash so where am i producing cash i'm producing it with dividends i'm producing it by selling options sometimes i might end up letting an option expire and i'm gonna take the gain off that company uh all of those things are revenue producing i might buy real estate in that real estate is producing rents it's cash flow real estate and so those rents are coming in enough to cover the expenses plus i have some extra and if there's enough coming in that it covers all my personal expenses that i don't have to work all right so now we're 40 and we're saying oh geez i don't have any of those assets to produce it so then start right away the easy thing to do is to go right to the stock market and you're going to start building it up i always say the first 50 000 you're going to go in and you're going to buy income producing companies and infinity investing always has a list and we're always rating them continuously throughout the month so you can always just pick some that are good income producing companies make sure that the timing is right run your seven criteria which again is explained in the in the portal there and just see whether it's the right time for you to buy a particular company buy that particular company and let it start producing those dividends for you buy a hundred shares and now i can sell one option against it so i can produce some more income and if you just do that you just keep repeating it until you hit about fifty thousand dollars that's where i would start is i would be looking at it going all right i need to have a little emergency fund i need to have my investment fund so i'm just going to focus right now on the investment fund i want to have liquidity of about 50 000 before i go to the next step which is where i'm buying real estate i want to have some liquidity because real estate it can go like i might have to replace a roof the day after i buy a a property or my you know maybe i get hit by a hurricane right away or you know there's lots of stuff that can happen or you know the economy just decides to tank and all of a sudden i'm sitting there vacant for six months i need to be able to handle all that and the way you do that is with liquidity now we're going to do everything we can to minimize those risks but there's no there's no replacing having that actual liquidity that's why i always start in the stock market and i say hey start buying those same companies get 100 shares sell option against it out of the money options which again we want to we want to be a stock market landlord we want to start renting out our stocks so we can start producing this income then it's just up to you as to how active you want to be i have clients that make a very good living simply focusing it on the real on their stocks and buying and selling and buying and selling they sell they they chart they get very good at charting they spend time in the advanced area which is what those guys are doing eric and company are always in there showing you guys how to do these things but they might be selling those options then buying them back as as the stock pulls back there's always ranges that it's flowing and so sell the option buy a back sell it's buy it back you could do that multiple times in a single day and make some decent money all right all that stuff is now replacing the income that you're having to make as an individual now if you're still working and you have both now we're compounding that's exactly what we want to be at now we want our assets producing i'm producing and it starts to snowball as time goes on you'll be very surprised at how little it takes before you could start replacing your income now that does not mean you quit your job it just means that i'm going to have a period of time where i have not only the income that from my assets but i'm also working i'm going to be making twice as much and if i cut my expenses a little bit so if i'm 40 and i'm like hey i'm behind the eight ball all right now it's a function of how much do you need to live on how much do you have generating i can keep making more i could show you guys how to generate more but on the same token maybe i need to be spending a little bit less maybe i need to get my spending under control in those two things conjunction you know again i lower my lower what i'm paying i increase how much i'm generating i'm going to get to my goal much much quicker now there are people in our group who have retired off of as little as three homes because their income was sufficient off of those houses and that in this particular case i'm thinking of somebody who did shared housing who ended up generating a nice chunk of change somewhere in the 17 000 a month range simply by buying a house and deciding that what she was going to do is do shared house now i'm not saying that's immediately where you go i'm going to say she was able to do that because she knew exactly how much she needed to live off of she had some other income coming in she had this income coming in and she was able to say hey you know what i have enough coming in that it's replacing everything i need to live off of and i can retire and that's exactly what she did it's not i have to have millions and millions and millions of dollars you just need to replace what it is that you're spending and then you can decide whether or not you want to work because those assets are going to continue to grow you're able to continue to generate income off them so it doesn't take a ton it's actually way easier than you realize once you identify and target a number and say oh this is how much i need to replace then this is how you do it now again i'm going to say this if you like this type of content please subscribe please share this with other people too if you think it'll help them all right last question under this rich versus wealth and where should i start in these types of questions uh this is the last one that i got and i want to go over this one this is actually something that a lot of people think which is uh let me read you the question and then you'll see what i mean i started putting 10 percent towards paying off my debt and investing in a dividend paying stocks that's fantastic i feel it'll take me decades to get caught up i see people with more debt driving newer cars and buying houses will the 10 percent really get me to financial freedom i feel i'm missing out any advice so let me be very specific to you yes it's going to take a while that 10 is the getting out of debt getting at least 10 percent that you're putting aside you should be putting 10 percent towards philanthropy if you don't have the money to do that like if you don't want to give it to charity if you don't want to tithe then at least put your time towards those things and then you could take the 10 percent and dump it into your investment there's another 10 percent that's going towards debt so as soon as you're out of debt then that lumps in and so we're really going to be putting about 30 percent aside into our investments and you can put more it's as simple as saying hey what am i what do i need to live off of can i cut back some of the stuff like am i spending stuff money just because i have it and it's like burning a hole in my pocket and i'm going to go to the movies twice a week i'm going to go to dinner all the time if i cut back and put myself on a budget can i put more towards my investment absolutely then you say well i see all these people driving around on a new car that's a big fat liability that is costing them thousands of dollars i understand that there's an envy of like geez you will lose that once you realize the true expense then you'll probably start looking at them going oh wow they're probably going to be working till they're 80.

right now there's not a magic pill like boom and i'm all of a sudden super wealthy nope you got to buy assets and it might be a slow process but if you do it for that 10 20 years if you do it and you do it consistently then you'll you will not have to work until you're 80 90 100 years old and you'll have enough income coming in to where you'll be able to maintain your standard of living and then it just becomes up to you whether you want to volunteer a lot of people say geez i want to retire because they're miserable right they're saying hey i want to retire i want to be able to do this i want to do that i'm just why not build your life to where you're actually not miserable the a lot of the people that i work with they get to that point where they realize wait i'm i volunteer i don't really have to work and they enjoy it much much more and they're like i'm never really going to stop doing what i'm enjoying my life that's what we want to build towards and where do we start we always start by building up our liquid liquidity so we're going to buy stocks that are dividend producing stocks we're going to try to amass a hundred shares in one company so we can sell options on it so we can become a stock market landlord we're gonna keep repeating that process until we have at least fifty thousand dollars of liquidity so and then we're gonna look at real estate it doesn't take as much as you think as soon as these things start to snowball a little bit and it starts replacing your income it might just be it's replacing ten dollars a week and then all of a sudden it's twenty dollars a week and then five years later it's three or four hundred dollars a week and you realize wait a second all the pressure is gone and i'm just taking that extra money and i'm letting my assets continue to buy more assets talk to somebody today literally he and his wife make in the hundred the hundred to two hundred thousand dollar range their net worth was well over five million dollars and they were in their mid forties if you do this and it was the same thing i'm telling you is they they have that they are worth quite a bit of money they're absolutely liquid and they're doing a great job and the reason they did is because they consistently put investments aside consistently put investments uh and use those investments to generate more investments they didn't go out and buy an immediately a bigger house they didn't go out and buy a bunch of new cars because they were waiting until they had enough income coming off of those assets to pay for any of their liabilities so now they have uh again i just literally talked to him about an hour ago so i was like ah this is great they have about twelve thousand dollars a month coming in whether they work or not but they both still work they've replaced their income and a hundred percent of that income that's coming in off of their assets is going into more assets and it's compounding and they realize as they're doing their numbers like wait a second this is going to continue to snowball we're going to have a very substantial estate yeah that's exactly how it works as long as you start as long as you start doing this and yes you're going to look around and you're going to say but there's people driving bentleys and rolls royces every time i go down to miami i'm shocked at all the lamborghinis rolls or races and bentleys right that is not wealth that is rich that's somebody taking some money and dumping it on something that is not a good investment it's not an investment that's pure frivolity they're just they're pay they want to have a nice car congratulations i don't begrudge it but you got to have the asset to allow you to do that most people don't most people are buying that with another liability and what they're going to find is they're going to be 45 and they're not going to have a penny to their name they're just going to be in debt up to their eyeballs don't let that be you don't let that that be you so if if that 10 is a starting point to get you to start rolling it's going to continue to snowball the longer period of time if you're saying this is going to take too long give it some time number one and actually let the system work and then you could say hey maybe i cut down some other expenses maybe i get a side gig maybe i want to put more and i want to push it maybe you're willing to do a little harder like hey i want to work more with the the asset that i buy so for example i could buy a single family house and i could just rent it that's that's me that's that's lazy landlord i could buy a house and i could airbnb it maybe a little more work i could buy a house and i could do shared housing maybe a little more work right but i'm able to generate when i do shared housing for example it's about 200 percent net that you in like you actually take in about twice as much money on a net basis on a monthly basis but it is more work i could choose to do that so if i'm sitting here looking and saying boy it's just not going fast enough then that's what you do you start getting more involved in your investments or hey i'm doing dividend stock right and i'm writing covered calls and i'm doing them every month okay do them every week how about do them every day and and watch it and watch them and be a little more actively involved in it you can increase your income just by doing that and that'll get you to your goal a heck of a lot faster so hey if you like this type of information by all means please subscribe to the channel share it with anybody else that you feel it will help and ask them to subscribe as well thanks [Music] you

the properties be protected for future generations, they will certainly concentrate on reduced risked. investments for most of their assets. These financial investments are generally divided between lengthy. term economic investments and also physical properties.

skilled riches supervisor, there is a possibility that the family can shed all their riches.
While some philanthropists come from rich. It is this arrogance that will lead them to waste the family members fortune.
When individuals think about Ponzi systems and also their targets, they often tend to think of the millionaires.
The teams that they fail to remember around are the several count on funds. The rapid growth of the household can lead. Bear in mind the Rothschild family from.
however the future generation. This indicates that no issue the amount of relative there are, some.
