First and foremost I want to thank you all and welcome to the Billionaire Factory, your one stop shop for financial literacy. My investing journey began when I was just 18 years old and I read the book RICH DAD POOR DAD by Robert Kiyosaki that book literally has changed my life and from that day forward I was hooked on the topic of investing. At that time I had absolutely no idea where to begin. Therefore I understand exactly how someone can feel lost in the financial world.
The Billionaire Basics course is designed for the person who has finally decided to take control of their finances but has no clue whatsoever on where to begin. The course is broken down and very easy to understand. Not only does the course teach you what financial instruments are, you will be taught how to purchase and how to make money in the market.
I also would like to say thank you for signing up because this has really been my dream to teach minorities about financial literacy. I even wrote about it in my college acceptance essay. So thank you all for making my dream a reality!!! Last but not least shout out to everyone that showed interest in stepping their financial literacy game up! This is a big step and I feel this is what holds us back from achieving financial freedom. So MAJOR shout out to all of you!
Learning to invest can be very dull and boring. But not at the BILLIONAIRE FACTORY! If faul language offends you then this is NOT the class for you! So sit back, take notes, and enjoy the ride through the BILLIONAIRE FACTORY.
First I would like to introduce myself for those that may not know who I am. My name is Jasmine C White and I have been learning about investing for the past 12 years (I know I'm old lol). It all started when I read the book "Rich Dad Poor Dad" when I was 18. (I URGE you to read this book because it really changed my life.)
After reading the book, I immediately saved $6000 through the method of Paying Yourself First, which is the very first topic of the course. It took me approximately 6 months to achieve this goal. At the time I was a bank teller and no matter what, I did not care who requested to borrow money, or if I wanted to purchase anything, or even if I was hungry. I WOULD NOT TOUCH MY SAVINGS #discipline
Shortly after, I purchased my first Certificate of Deposit with Ally Bank. The term was for 11 months and I earned approximately $67 in interest. I was excited to watch my money grow on its own due to compound interest.
I was ready for more investing! During that time I had saved an additional $4,000. Here I am 19 years old with $10,000!! I FELT RICH! But I was hit with reality when I visited a Fidelity Investment Branch in New York City and an employee whom I was speaking with literally held in his laughter when I told him that I had $10,000 to invest. In order to be serviced at a Fidelity one has to have at least $50,000!!! He literally spoke to me in the doorway of the Branch, couldn't even get a seat lol
I had never been so discouraged in my investing life. So I did what any 19 year old with $10,000 would do. I BLEW IT! Designer everything even down to the socks! But I was broke after the money was gone. I am talking about real broke because at this time we lived in a shelter. After realizing how big of a mistake I made. I started all over. Back at square one!
This was the start of my financial career and now I swing trade (there is a class on that). My goal is to spread as much financial knowledge as humanly possible. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. I look forward to passing on my knowledge to you :)
