Investment Properties Make Your Money Work For You

Sep 16, 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.

One person who most certainly does have money is Robert Kiyosaki, and in one of his books, "Cash Flow Quadrant," Anyone who says money isn't important obviously has not been without it long,"

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.

Though money is undeniably an important thing, I must caution you again viewing it as an end in itself. This is the type of thinking that traps people in "good" jobs, that, in reality, pull them away from their loved ones and their favorite pastimes. At the end of the day, money's worth nothing if it doesn't allow you to do what you love; this is why Robert Kiysaki and his wife took the path they did, instead of pursuing salaried jobs.

Remember that no career in the world will give you the things that truly make life worth living, such as a fulfilling home life and time with your family. All money can do is grant you the resources to pursue what makes you happy.

Life as an employee is, in most cases, a dead end-- if you're spending all your time and energy working for a paycheck, you'll never have time to pursue what you truly desire. You've purchased financial security with your time, but all this security really assures you is that you will have more work to do, day in and day out. If you want to break out of this cycle, take the true road to riches: investing.

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 that there was a way to be a responsible provider for his family without spending most of his waking life working. He knew the secret was become an investor.

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.
