Knowing where to invest your money is a critical component of winning at wealth. There’s no one “right” way to invest and no perfect investment vehicle, but with a long-term perspective and patience, you can build wealth with very little effort.

In this episode, John breaks down his personal investments and shares a reminder that investments require hard work to get the return you want.   

In this episode, you’ll also hear:

  • Two hats small business owners must wear 
  • Why investing in real estate yields better returns 
  • Set it and forget it approach to investing in stocks

Must-listen moments: 

[00:04:00] You have to have success in some way in earning income to be able to generate the capital necessary to invest in other places.

[00:5:40] In real estate, I expect to get a better return because of the fact that it is not a passive investment. I expect a better return because I’m putting some of my time into it to make that investment pay off, and I want a return for my time. 

[00:16:40] It is not get rich quick. It is get rich slow, and it’s get rich with putting some work and labor into it. There’s no magic bullet in winning at wealth.
