From the Desk of Kenneth Moore
People are not born with an internal ability to build wealth financial intellegence is not neccesssarily a God given gift that most of us were not blessed with. The reality is that you can learn how to create wealth the same way you can learn any other discipline. First you educate yourself and then you apply what you have learned gaining more and more experience as you go. "If a person reads 100 books and dedicates 1000 hours towards learning something, that person will be an expert at whatever it is." That was a quote by Bill Gates, a man who also told an auditorium full of college students not to be afraid to walk away from college and try to invent something or start a business. He told the students that college is a place that will let you leave without penalizing you. They have an open door policy allowing students to pick up where ever they left off. College is a safety net that will always be there so try to do something great and if it doesn't work out then go back to school. Most of us get caught up in the pattern of; get up, got to work pay bill, get up go to work PAY BILL. Form childhood we have been conditioned to think in this manner. Get a decent job, work until you are 65 and then retire and live off of your retirement plan. That is the life our traditional education prepares us for. But what if you want more than that? What if you want to be able to enjoy all of the wonderful things money can buy? The good news is that we live in an age where anybody can be or do anything. If you want to be rich then dedicate yourself to learning a specific kind of knowledge. Focus on learning how to build wealth and nothing else. Do what one of the richest men in this said to do.
