How You Can Become A Millionaire

Everyone’s path to wealth is different, but they ALL have 4 things in common:


  1. They create Investable Income - Surplus monthly income to invest for growth 

  2. They invest in Assets - Like stocks, real estate & businesses that grow in value and/or can produce more income 

  3. They utilize Leverage - Like financing to help them acquire more asset value with less money of their own

  4. They utilize Time - like compound interest to let their money multiply on it’s own 

These 4 variables make up the Wealth Creation Formula:


Wealth Creation = Investable Income x Asset Acquisition x  Leverage x Time


The secret to growing wealth is discovering your own unique application of these 4 variables.

A Little More About From Worry to Wealth

Money problems are the #1 cause of divorce and the #2 cause of stress. Money touches every corner of our lives, from our relationships, to our health and our career, and while it may not directly buy happiness, it certainly enables us to pursue it. 


By discovering your own personal strategies to solve the four variables of the wealth formula—investable income, acquiring assets, leverage, and time—you will unlock the power to follow the path to wealth with confidence. You need a roadmap to wealth, but not a generic “one size fits all” one. You need a map of you.
