SK3B is always working some angle, isn’t she? Prior to the FB post below, the old raunch put up another 50 paragraphs ass kissing BF. 401K? Who needs it? Not when one can pressure Mamma to hand over her retirement savings.
Flight to SFO delayed. Hopped on an alternate to OAK and all that was left was the middle seat. So smooshed in and a wee bit tired, but making it.
Some people would say it’s not worth the time, money and energy to fly to the Bay for the day for a book launch party.
But for this book in particular, I am choosing to do it because it exemplifies what the book is all about.
Over the past years, I’ve invested most of the money I’ve earned exactly as described in Bryan Franklin and Michael Ellsberg’s new book, “The Last Safe Investment”.
Rather than putting money into the market or my 401k, I’ve invested what I’ve earned into developing what Michael and Bryan call Super Skills, creating community (they call it Tribe), and participating in experiences that have allowed me to create a life I consider worth living.
You might worry that according to the traditional financial services industry advice, I don’t have enough in “retirement.”
Fortunately, I’ve created a life and learned how to create income in ways that I will never need to retire from.
I want to do what I do always. And when I want to shift, and slow down, I’ll be able to do that and still earn what I need, doing work I love.
You don’t have to wait until retirement to do that for yourself.
Trust me when I say, it’s way easier the younger you start. And, it’s never too late.
Pushing money into your retirement account simply is not the answer.
Instead, I have invested as the book “The Last Safe Investment” shows you how to do.
And today, because of those investments (which Suze Orman would have definitely disapproved), I am financially liberated.
I know I can earn what I need, when I need it, on demand, being all of myself in the world.
Most importantly, I love my life. Without question.
I couldn’t always say that before.
Today, I am flying to San Francisco (now Oakland) to take a stand for every single person who is still investing their resources with the old economy conditioning in mind.
It’s time to shift.
We are doing it together. I hope you (yes, YOU) will come along.
Link to the book and an interview with the authors in the comments.
Investing in BF & ME’s “Super Skills” has given SK3B “financial freedom”? Does this finally mean real, honest-to-goodness curtains in the master bedroom?
Stocks & bonds & real estate? Who needs ’em? Not when the always humble Bryan and Smellsberg co-wrote a book!
