Bo Sanchez’ Truly Rich Club Review

I’ve been wanting to do a review on Bo Sanchez’ Truly Rich Club for quite some time but I’ve been putting it off due to busy schedule at work.  When I read about Bo’s recent article “How To Be a Billionaire”, I thought people need to find out more about this.

Before I say anything else, please bear in mind that I am (well, technically I am not, but my wife is) a member of the Truly Rich Club, and if you sign-up to the Truly Rich Club, I (or my wife) earn a little income as an affiliate commission.

That being said, this review is not to persuade you to do something you don’t want to do.  My hope is that by sharing my personal experiences with the club, it will help you decide if joining the club will be of help in achieving your financial goals.


How did you find about the Truly Rich Club?

A couple of years ago, I was an OFW working as a Mainframe Test Lead for a credit card company in Malaysia.  When I came home to the Philippines for a 2-week vacation, I came across Bo’s 8 Secrets of the Truly Rich book.  At that time, I was really trying to find out ways on how I can grow my hard earned money.  After reading the book, I realized he was actually holding Truly Rich Seminars in the Philippines.   Since I only had a few days left in the country before going back to Malaysia, I was not able to attend the seminar.

A few months after, I learned that Bo created the Truly Rich Club.  Because I wasn’t able to attend the seminar – I was very eager to try out the online club!

Since my wife was the one who has a credit card, I talked my wife into joining the club.  I am very blessed to have a very supportive wife.  She agreed to join in. The next month, we received the 2 months worth DVD videos and Audio CDs we ordered from the club.


Why did you join the Truly Rich Club?

I was in a foreign country.  My options were limited.  I couldn’t attend any seminar in the Philippines because I was out of the country.

I didn’t know anything about investing in mutual funds, stocks or internet businesses, especially in the Philippines at that time.  Yes, I learned a thing or two from various blogs and personal finance sites.  In most cases the specific advise on these sites were only applicable to other countries such as the U.S.  I didn’t know if the same thing can be done in the Philippines.

So when I came across the Truly Rich Club, it was like a dream come true.  Joining the club allowed me to learn how to grow my money in the Philippines! Moreover, through the monthly DVDs, I got to watch Bo Sanchez’ interviews and talks.  It was like attending the Truly Rich seminars virtually.


What did you like about the the Truly Rich Club?

The content is simply amazing.  When I started, I was looking forward to the next month’s issues.  My wife and I would always checkout the mail box just to see if the DVDs for the month have already arrived.

What I really liked are the very specific information shared through the various interviews on very successful businessmen.  You can see how they view money, their mindset in terms of relationships and on building businesses and character.

The club products are full-packed with information.  I can’t keep up.  There’s a lot of information to learn.  I’m still catching up with the rest of the power talks.

Bo also sends out a weekly Newsletter where he provides stocks update, business advise, and more.  The content is really overflowing, I only wish you could also learn from those DVDs and Audio CDs and get the financial information first hand.

One thing I really appreciate was the smooth transition of delivering the DVDs after my wife and I finally decided to come home to the Philippines last year. We wanted to have the audio CDs and DVDs delivered to our home in the Philippines instead.  We only had to email them our new address and voila! We received the products to the new address.


What I didn’t like about the the Truly Rich Club?

When we first started with the club, there were times when the DVDs arrived late.  Since we were always very eager, waiting for the next issue was a torture.

It would also be a great idea to have a forum exclusive to club members where lessons can be discussed or shared with each other.  The feeling of being in a community would certainly help boost members’ confidence when they start to struggle in taking action on those valuable financial tips.


Why I recommend joining the Truly Rich Club?

I honestly believe that in today’s world, information is king.  If you are not informed, you will be left out.  You will always be wondering how come others are getting financially ahead while you’re still stuck working at a dead-end job you really hate.

There were a lot of times when I wanted to share the incredible products I’ve watched or heard from the club, but it’s hard because there are copyright issues.  I don’t want to go into the business of piracy.  More importantly, I don’t want to profit from stealing other people’s products.

Thankfully, there’s one “legal” way to help share these products to you.  That is, if you decide to be a member of the club as well.  The Super Gold Package (DVD video +  Audio CD) costs PhP 997 ($37 for International Membership) monthly at the time of this writing.  The Gold Package (Audio CD only) costs PhP 497 ($39 for International Membership) monthly.  The Audio CD is basically a recording of the same DVD video so if you are interested only in listening to the presentations, you can take the Gold Package.  What I do is I copy the audio over to my iPod and I listen to it while working.  The great thing about it is that I can listen to it over and over again.

Bo Sanchez is a preacher so a lot of his talks contain references to passages in the bible.  While I don’t mind since I am a Catholic, others may not be as forgiving.  So if you don’t like hearing the word “amen”, please bear this in mind when you join.

How has the club helped you so far?

After my wife and I finally came home to the Philippines to settle for good, we immediately attended Bo’s Truly Rich seminar.  Even though he was discussing the same basic concepts from his book and the club, it’s still refreshing to see Bo presenting the ideas with my own eyes.  It’s a bit surreal. You can learn more about my experience on the seminar here.

My wife and I also attended the financial coaching program a few weeks after.  After the seminar, I was really excited to finally get started.  Here are 3 things I’ve been exploring since I started taking action on the many lessons from the club and the seminars:

  • RTBs – my wife and I finally started investing in RTBs.  You can learn more about how we opened an account. Here’s an update after we received our first interest income.  And, only a few days ago, we already received the 2nd quarterly interest income.  Yey!
  • Stocks – I’ve started investing in stocks.  I’ve invested through EIP for a couple of months now.  These are small (PhP 5,000) monthly investments on the most stable companies listed in the Philippine Stocks Exchange.  My basic strategy is to take advantage of the dollar cost averaging.  I’ve also learned another strategy from Bo’s Stocks Update that I may try out soon – that is, Super EIP (I think this was coined by Bo himself).  If you want to find out, you can sign-up to the Truly Rich Club or wait for my updates by subscribing to this blog via RSS or Email. Subscription to Rich Money Habits blog is FREE!.
  • Internet Marketing – I am a techie. Having spent the last 8 years of my life working in IT, I am very fluent in more than a dozen languages. Unfortunately, only 3 of them can be understood by human.  No, I am not an alien.  Most of the languages I know, only computers are able to understand.  I can communicate (i.e. program) in Visual Basic, C, Mainframe Languages, Assembly Language, and more.  Which brings me to my point.  I want to be able to communicate to fellow human beings as well as computers.  I want to find out how to present an information product on the internet in a way that the other person will be able to know exactly what he is getting into.  If it is something that will solve his problem, well and good!  If not, at least he doesn’t have to waste his time digging deeper, seeking clarification on that specific product.

What will you get when you join the club?

While reading Bo’s newest book “Choose To Be Wealthy: 8 Habits of the Happy Millionaire” which was launched last Saturday at SMX Convention Center, I got the most updated list of the 11 Big Blessings you will receive if you decide to join the Truly Rich Club.  The list is so much more now than when we signed-up more than a year ago.  It’s really great that Bo is giving away so much.

Here’s a sneak peak of what you will receive:

  • 2 Powertalks every month (instant access via MP3)
  • Bo’s Success Mentors Collection every 3 months
  • 4 Wealth Strategies newsletter every month
  • Daily God’s Whispers email
  • How To Be Truly Rich Seminar
  • How To Conquer Your Goliaths Ebook
  • How To Turn Thoughts Into Things Ebook
  • My Maid Invests in the Stock Market Ebook
  • Monthly update of what Bo invests in
  • Earn passive income by becoming Bo’s affiliate in the Truly Rich Club
  • Earn passive income with Bo’s other internet work

There’s even an amazing “wow experience” guarantee. Here’s how it works.  Should you decide to cancel your membership during your first month of membership, after receiving the stuffs above, the money will be returned to you no questions asked.  You even get to keep all the stuffs that have already been sent to you – an amazing $251.50 value.

That’s all I can share for now.  If you do decide to join the Truly Rich Club, congratulations to you!  My hope is that you become Truly Rich in every sense of the word and share your blessings to other people!  Good luck!

Rich Money Habits Carnival – The Psychology of Money

Welcome to the third edition of Rich Money Habits Carnival – The Psychology of Money.  The top picks of this edition all share the same common theme – discovering the psychology of money.

How is Warren Buffet, one of the richest people in the world, different from the rest of us?  Why is it that some people make excuses and others continue to blast their way to success?  How can you get what you want by also giving someone else what he wants?  Find the answers out by reading through our top picks for the month of March.

Rich Money Habits’ Top 5 Picks

  • Your Best Library presents 10 Signs You’re a Financial Disaster posted at Your Best Library, saying, “If you show these 10 signs, the chances are high that you’re a financial disaster.” [RMH] Hilarious! I couldn’t stop myself from nodding my head at the 10 signs of being a financial disaster.  Witty, funny and definitely spot on.
  • Silicon Valley Blogger presents Basic Business Advice from an Accidental Entrepreneur posted at The Digerati Life, saying, “My own story on how I became an online entrepreneur.” [RMH] This article is an honest take on the life of an accidental entrepreneur.  The author said it best in “it’s (NOT) enough to say that your business is filling a need…you should actually be good at filling that need.”
  • Joe Plemon presents Are You An Opportunity Seizer or an Excuse Maker? posted at Personal Finance By The Book, saying, “Some find opportunity when it seemingly doesn’t exist. Others make excuses when opportunity knocks. A great rich money habit is to learn how to seize those opportunities.” [RMH] Great article on why we need to stop making excuses and take advantage of opportunities that come our way.  While reading the post, I remember the movie “Yes, Man” starring Jim Carrey.  It’s a feel good movie about saying yes to opportunities that life has to offer you.“
  • Writers Coin presents Warren Buffett’s Investment Advice: Why It’s So Hard to Follow | Wise Bread posted at Wise Bread, saying, “I almost made a ton of money and then almost lost a ton of money in the stock market. Just goes to show you how hard it is to follow Warren Buffett’s advice on being greedy when others are fearful and fearful when others are greedy.” [RMH] Great article on why it’s so hard to invest like Warren Buffet.  I totally agree that investing is more than money – sometimes it is also about handling your own emotions.  As Warren Buffet said ’be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful.’  Unfortunately, working with these 2 emotions is precisely the reason it is not easy to invest and go against the crowd.
  • Learn Save Invest presents Know your position posted at Learn Save Invest, saying, “A personal story of how I saved money on truck repairs just by realizing my position, and asking for a break.” [RMH] Inspiring story on how it pays to know what the other person wants when you try to ask for a discount.  In the end, the goal should be to have everybody win.

Announcing the winner of the FREE Rich Dad Poor Dad book!

First of all, THANK YOU very much to all those who participated in the first-ever Rich Money Habits Readers’ Survey

Your inspiring life’s stories, financial goals and dreams and suggestions on how Rich Money Habits can be of help to you are very much appreciated.  Rest assured, we’ll definitely keep them in mind as we aim to constantly improve the Rich Money Habits blog to be more relevant to your financial needs.

Without further ado, I am very delighted to finally announce the winner of the FREE Rich Dad Poor Dad book as part of our first ever Rich Money Habits Readers’ Survey promo. 

And the winner is… Lunining Arabiran! 


I was so amazed at the personal finance tips and stories Lunining shared that I want the readers of this blog to learn from and be inspired by it as well. 

Here’s her answer to the question What are your money habits and how they have affected your life?”

I’m earning a little over minimum wage and I was "awakened" that after 3 years of working I had so much less than what I was hoping for. I cleaned up my act….

  1. I love Manga (Japanese animation) so much so that a large chunk of my money goes here. I curtailed the Manga-buying impulse. (I still do buy but occasionally).
  2. I don’t use my credit card except when buying groceries twice a month.
  3. I bring lunch to the office.
  4. I had my mom invest my money that has a 12% APY.
  5. I read about how to invest in the stock market.
  6. I built up and completed my 1 year emergency fund.
  7. I am building up my retirement plan. I’m also looking into consulting someone who works for the SSS. So I can compute the actual amount of pension I’ll be receiving when I’m 60.
  8. I am taking up my Master’s degree so I can go ahead and get side jobs. (This wasn’t really necessary to get the jobs but understanding more concepts and theoretical background would help) and I’m almost done, just the thesis left.
  9. Next time I get to be in another country, will be saving my per diem like crazy. Last time I was in the US, I spent my money on a lot of souvenirs.
  10. I created a budget.

All of those things are the stuff that I’m doing, have done and will be doing. There are a couple things more but I think this is getting too long.  Basically, knowing and being conscious of how money is spent has taught me that when you spend money now, you’re not only giving up that money in that instant but you are also forfeiting the right that, that money can earn in the future.


How about you?  What are your money habits and how have they affected your financial life?

Where to Invest in 2010 Part 3- Investment with Tax Incentives: PERA vs CTRP

This is part 3 of the “Where to Invest in 2010” series which tries to compare the two investment vehicles with tax incentives: PERA and CTRP.  Part 1 dealt with the Filipino investor profile while part 2 discussed the 5 stages of Life Cycle Investing.

In your journey to financial freedom, one inevitable expense that you would have to deal with is taxes.  It is not enough that you make a lot of money.  It also matters how much you keep. 

Who is richer? A person who makes $100,000 a year and pay $50,000 in taxes?  Or someone who earns only $70,000 and only pays $5,000 in taxes?  The answer is simple.  The one who keeps the more money (after taxes).

Investment w/ Tax Incentives: PERA vs CTRP

According to Efren Cruz, the author of the book “Pwede Na! The Complete Pinoy Guide to Personal Finance”, there are two investment vehicles that offer tax incentives.  There is PERA (Philippine Equity Retirement Account) and CTRP (Comprehensive Tax Reform Package). 

Here are the main differences between PERA and CTRP:




  > Non-OFW
  > OFW
<= PhP 100,000
<= PhP 200,000
no limit
no limit
Max # of accounts 5 none
Tax Benefits on Financial Instruments    
  > Capital Gains
  > Interest Income
exempt if tenor > 5 years
exempt if tenor > 5 years
Tax Benefits on Stocks    
  > Capital Gains
  > Interest Income
Tax Credit 5% of contribution none
Administration with none


As you can see there is a LOT of tax advantages for both types of accounts.  Having a tax exempt investment is like saving at least 20% of your income.  It’s money that you keep. 

Rich Money Habits Thoughts:

To be honest, I haven’t given much thought about retirement until I learned about the tax incentives from the seminar.  I understand that there’s a mandatory SSS or GSIS in the Philippines.  I also read about 401K and Roth IRA accounts in the US but I am not sure if there’s anything similar to it in the Philippines. 

There’s still a lot more to learn about retirement accounts in the Philippines, but the tax incentives definitely caught my attention. The tax benefits from PERA and CTRP are incredible. 

Unfortunately, for reasons I still don’t understand, PERA is still not available in the Philippines.  I guess I’ll have to wait until it becomes available.  As for CTRP, it was my first time to hear about it during the seminar, so I really don’t have any clue. 

My only hope is that I’d be able to learn and take advantage of both financial vehicles and share it to readers of this blog some day.


How about you?  How are you planning for your retirement?  Have you taken advantage of any tax incentives for your investment accounts?

Where to Invest in 2010 Series: Part 2 – Life Cycle Investing

This is part 2 of a series of articles discussing the lessons and tips from Moneysense Live’s Where to Invest in 2010 Seminar.

Part 1 of the series introduced the Filipino investor profile and shared the overall financial outlook for 2010 along with some tips on how to invest in the coming year according to one of Citibank’s financial analysts.

This time we will be sharing the 5 Stages of Life Cycle investing which was discussed by a BPI representative during the seminar. 

5 Stages of Life Cycle Investing 

  1. Orientation
    • Eager Beginner (mid 20’s and younger)
    • Learn the different types of savings
    • Cultivate the habit of savings and investing
  2. Exploration
    • Investment Apprentice (mid 20’s to 30’s)
    • Gain knowledge and experience on the different investment options
    • Develop skills to choose the right type of investments and avoid scams
  3. Accumulation
    • Wealth Builder (30’s to 40’s)
    • Optimize returns
    • Accumulate wealth by owning a home, new car, higher education, etc
  4. Preservation
    • Asset Protector (50’s to 60’s)
    • Seek less risky investments to protect money accumulated
    • Live on interest
  5. Disposition
    • Legacy Bestower (60 and above)
    • Self-sufficient
    • Leave heirs with as much assets as possible

Rich Money Habits Thoughts

The above 5 stages of life-cycle investing allows you to assess your financial situation and where you’re supposed to be at specific points in your life.  It is a handy guide to achieving your dream of financial freedom. It is a financial roadmap.

If you’re still young in your 20’s, it would be to your advantage to start learning how to personally manage your money as soon as possible.  This is very hard to do especially when you’re young.  You would rather enjoy life and spend as much as you can than worry about saving and investing your own money. 

If you’re in your 40’s and still struggling to save, that’s an obvious sign that you urgently need to start catching up fast.  Decide now to learn about the various ways to save and invest your money while you still have some time. 

If you’re looking for ways to build your retirement fund, you’re in luck as part 3 of the series will discuss the available retirement accounts in the Philippines (PERA vs CTRP) as well as the tax incentives from choosing one over the other.  The article will also touch a little bit on REITs.  So watch out for that in the coming weeks.

If you’re already approaching retirement, I wish you well.  I hope your retirement income from your investments can support you to live out your dream of financial freedom!  Have fun and enjoy life!


P.S.  Watch out for the announcing of the winner of Rich Dad Poor Dad book by Robert Kiyosaki from our first ever Rich Money Habits Readers’ Survey!

P.P.S. We will also be launching the Rich Money Habits Newsletter this month which includes a special section showcasing the results from the first ever Rich Money Habits Reader’s Survey.

Rich Money Habits Gets Featured!

I’m very excited today.  Rich Money Habits just got featured at!  Here’s an excerpt of the interview.

  • What encouraged you to start Rich Money habits?

It has been said that we are creatures of habit. Some money habits make us poor, while others make us rich. The key to being rich is knowing which is which.

My money habits growing up can be described as “working hard for money”. The only way I knew how to make money then was to work hard and and get paid at the end of each month.

Being young and foolish about money, I made sure that my “hard work” was compensated by having lots of fun. I have earned and spent my money as if there’s no tomorrow, dining out with friends, buying the latest gadget, or buying home appliances all at once, EVEN if I didn’t have the money to pay for it. I only had to use my new credit card.

When my debts piled up, I realized that my money habits are eating me alive. I even had to do cash advance on my credit card just to pay for rent. That was a wake up call for me. I realized I had better take care of my own money by controlling my own money habits or I’d end up begging for money to pay for what I eat.

That proved to be a turning point in my financial life. My journey of trying to learn how the world of money works started by discovering my own “poor” money habits and forming new “rich” money habits to help me get started in taking control of my own finances.

Rich Money Habits was born out of my desire to help people take control of their own money habits. It starts with recognizing that years and years of “poor” money habits programming cannot be undone overnight. It takes constant exposure to the financial habits of the rich, making your own financial mistakes, and having the courage to take action in spite of financial failures. More importantly, Rich Money Habits was built in the hope of cultivating a community where people can learn and encourage each other to discover and strengthen the “rich man” within each one of us.

  • How does Rich Money habits differ from other financial sites?

The main focus of Rich Money Habits is in helping you develop the mindset of the rich in the hope of drawing out the “rich man” in you to help solve your own financial problems.

Some financial sites focus on being frugal. Others focus on ways of saving. While a few concentrate on the different investment vehicles, whether it be online savings accounts, mutual funds, real-estate or stocks.

Even though Rich Money Habits will occasionally feature these topics, it is mainly to highlight the money mindset behind the financial decision and examine how and why people take advantage of these financial vehicles in the first place.

  • Does personal experiences play a key part in the content of your blogs?

My personal experiences (both successes and failures) are occasionally included in some of the articles in Rich Money Habits in the hope that it might help encourage other people to explore and discover their money habits on their own.

  • Where do you get the ideas for your blogs?

Ideas are a dime a dozen. I’ve read hundreds of personal finance books, magazines, blogs, attended financial seminars and coaching, designed software solutions to major financial services companies but nothing beats jumping in and experiencing how to solve your own money problems. Listening to other people’s money problems also allows me to tune in and understand why people do what they do with their own money. My goal is to extract the valuable financial lessons from all these sources and effectively communicate those gem of money ideas to readers of Rich Money Habits.

  • What are some key concepts to keep in mind when creating a budget?

One thing I learned about a traditional budget is that it doesn’t work – at least for me anyway. I don’t keep a detailed list of all transactions that I make. What works for me is keeping an overall picture of where my money is coming from, where is it going out, and more importantly, if I’m keeping any of it at the end of each month. If I need to know where my financial life is, I can check my accounts and instantly get an idea if my money is growing or not. I’ve learned to stay flexible and treat a budget like a plan that has to be continually refined as I go.

  • What is some financial advice you could give our readers?

Keep learning. Keep dreaming. Keep building your own rich money habits.

Passive Income Opportunity Myths & Realities: How to Spot a Scam

The idea of a passive income attracts a lot of people mainly because it promises to earn you money while doing little or no work at all.  Some even think of having a passive income stream as an opportunity of a lifetime.  Who wouldn’t want to earn money while you sleep?  Who wouldn’t want to make money the easy way?  Who wouldn’t want to sit comfortably on the beach, drinking a glass of your favorite drink while your “passive stream of income” works hard to make money for you.

That is the dream, right?


What is passive income?

Passive income is the residual income you receive from rental properties, royalties from your books, licensing income from your businesses, etc.  This income is passive because it supposed to be earned with little or no work required from you at all.

While passive income promises a lot of things, it is NOT without a price.  Identifying the myths & realities of a passive income opportunity allows you to spot if it’s an opportunity of a lifetime or a total scam.


Myth: Little or no work at all

Reality: A lot of upfront work


The most common myth about a passive income opportunity is the allure of not having to work at all while money keeps coming to you.  While this may be true at some point, it is NOT the complete picture.  In most cases, the reality is that setting up these passive streams of income requires a LOT of hard work especially in the beginning.

Real Estate

One of the most common examples of a passive income is rental income from tenants through real-estate properties.  To some degree, it is a passive income. But still not purely 100%. If you are the one managing the property, you have to worry about maintaining the property and possibly fixing toilets in the middle of the night. 🙂  If you do hire a real-estate managing company, then you would need to make sure they do  their job and worth more than you’re paying them.  Otherwise, you stand to lose more compared to running the business on your own.


Ask any employee what they plan to do after retirement.  Most of them will answer that they want to go into business because “finally” they have enough capital to do so.  Unfortunately, it could be the riskiest move they will ever make.  The odds are against them.  Statistics say that 9 out of 10 businesses fail in the first 5 years.  Few do make it.  Others are forced to go back into employment.  The rest are content to live a “cheaper” lifestyle and forego their dreams.

Running a business needs your time and attention.  It demands your focus.  For that reason, it is not a passive income until you’re able to setup your business systems.  Setting up these systems will demand your hard work, your patience, not to mention your time and money.

If you’re able to set these systems up properly and hire a great CEO to run your business, only then can you let the system work for you and allow it to give you a steady stream of passive stream income.

However, if you setup the wrong system, especially if the system requires you to be the one managing the property, you will end up having a job instead of a sustainable business system.


Myth: You need a lot of money

Reality: Having money is not a guarantee


Some people think that building systems to create passive income requires a lot of money.  The reality is that successful entrepreneurs are not hindered by the lack of money in setting up their business systems.  They even use it as an inspiration to be more creative in selling their ideas to potential investors and partners.

While having money is an asset to a savvy entrepreneur, it is actually a liability for someone who doesn’t know what he is doing.  A lot of money in the beginning for an inexperienced businessman can be a hindrance to his success.  With money readily available, a frustrated and inexperienced entrepreneur can just throw away money at any problem that comes his way.

This is hardly the way to set up a business system.  It will only make the problem worse because the real problem is not identified and fixed, hence, the system does not improve.  All it does is throwing money down the drain.

In the end, money is an asset or a liability depending on how a person makes use of it.


Myth: Setting up a passive income stream is very hard

Reality: Setting up a passive income stream can be learned


While setting up a passive income requires a lot of work especially in the beginning, it certainly is not limited only to hardworking individuals.  Sometimes, not wanting to work hard can also be your asset as it forces you to think of ways to setup the business without you having to work for it.

You can choose to hire hardworking employees to do the work for you.  You can spend your time learning and figuring out how to set up efficient systems.  You can concentrate on the 20% of things you do that brings in 80% of your output and delegate all the rest.

Doing any of these things allows you to leverage your business system to complement your employees’ strengths and provide more high-value offerings without necessarily doing the work yourself.


In this day and age of living in the information superhighway, it is now easier for someone to be in business. With access to the internet, someone working at home can setup a blog or sell stuffs through ebay, amazon, or other online stores.  While this requires you to learn how internet businesses and marketing works, you can certainly hire someone to do it for you if you really don’t want to be involved in the technical details.

Making money online is such a popular dream for many of us.  The reality is, it is also NOT for everyone. It requires a lot of learning, patience and self-discipline to make the system work.  As with any brick-and-mortar business, it also needs your skills, time and attention.  It demands your focus and unrelenting desire to give more.  And with more and more clutter competing for your customers’ attention, there’s no other way to serve but to stand out and give your customer ALL you’ve got.


Demystifying the myths of building a passive income stream is only the first step of a lifelong journey.  The only way for you to learn how to build these systems, is to do it yourself, always remembering that something worth doing, is worth doing well.

In the same way that an overnight success is actually a culmination of a decade long history of working hard, building passive income streams is a journey laden with challenges and opportunities.

In the end even though creating passive income may be an opportunity of a lifetime, it is still up to YOU to make it happen.
