Keep Your Eyes On Your Own Business!

Posted by Elliot Jolesch on August 16, 2019

Keep your eyes on your own business isn’t just about working your normal 9 to 5, but that you also need to be investing in your future. You have to keep an eye on your business opportunity so that eventually you’ll be able to leave the 9 to 5 and focus on it exclusively.

Buying up real estate is one of the best ways to achieve your financial goals.

Taxes are probably the biggest area where you’re losing money. Taxes have existed in the United States since 1913 and go back even earlier in England. Taxes had an origin of being established to only impact the wealthiest members of society, but over time, taxes have evolved to where they are now where everyone, even the poor in society are expected to pay them.

The more money that you bring in, the higher the amount of taxes you have to pay. The most wealthy know of ways to protect themselves from taxes as much as possible, and that’s by forming a corporation. A corporation not only has positive tax implications, but it also can act as a shield when it comes to lawsuits. If this sounds interesting to you, it’s essential to contact a lawyer or speak to a business coach about how you can go about setting up a corporation.

Remember the golden rule of the business: Pay Yourself First

The problem is that while many people know this rule, they don’t often put it into practice. It’s essential to put it into effect to help evict yourself from the rat race. By following this rule, you’re put into a position where you have to make enough to pay yourself and then have more money to take care of your expenses.

Here are some finance basics you should be aware of:

Law

Knowing about the financial world isn’t complete without being somewhat aware of the laws surrounding your business. You want to stay within all of the laws, including federal, corporate, state, local, and accounting laws. It can be hard to stay on top of them all, but a lawyer can help guide you to the information you need to know.

Strategy Towards Investments

Not all investments are equal, but learning which investments are worth your effort will be a skill you hone over time. It’s helpful to get a leg up by learning from other investors and observing their strategies to inform your own.

Accounting Data

Being able to look at and understand your financial statements is an important skill. You will need to be able to examine the financials behind a business or asset that you’re thinking of buying to determine what their financial standing is actually. 

Don’t feel ashamed if you don’t have this skill down yet. There are many mature people that aren’t sure what they would need to do to a balance sheet. Understanding this document can help you and your business in the long run.

Supply and Demand

One of the biggest things that you need to understand is the behavior of the market when it comes to supply and demand. Being clueless about supply and demand puts you in a bad position. You need to be able to identify what people need and find a way to fill it. Opportunities are out there, you just need to be able to see them. Watch what others are selling and who buys from them. Look at how you can improve on it.

Once these different areas are all in your wheelhouse, you’ll be able to put them in use. Rich people have a knack for being able to invent ways to make money. They often know what’s a great deal and what they should pass on. Going back to real estate, you’ll want to find houses that were impounded by the police, foreclosed on by the bank, or have other troubling situations that make them a good deal. Once you get this property, you can either rent the property to start receiving a residual income or renovate it to put it on the market to sell.

Types of Investors

In this world, there are two different types of investors. There are those that go along with investing their money into an investment that’s put together by someone else in a pre-packaged type of way, and then there are investors that manufacture their own opportunities for investment.

You probably already have a clue as to which of these individuals will be more profitable and successful. To become one of those investors, you need to understand the market in finding the right properties and knowing how you should respond to them.

This means that you need to be able to:

  • Locate deals on properties that are being overlooked by others.
  • Gather enough capital to make the purchase.
  • Create a team to help you put your plan in action.

Knowing that there is risk involved in any transaction you make can stop some from going forward. Don’t let that thought of risk stop you when you’ve found an acquisition that fits the bill. You don’t want to make an effort to avoid risk, but find the best way to respond to any potential risks.
