When it comes to investing in the financial markets,
it starts with taking a stance to gain control of your
investment decisions. The financial markets can be
volatile at times. To eliminate some of that volatility,
we look for all-star businesses listed on the stock
exchanges that can show us the money in the
form of continuously producing a dividend.
Everyone remembers Tom Cruise’s character in
the movie Jerry Maguire. Jerry calls one of his
clients, Arizona Cardinals wide receiver
Rod Tidwell (Cuba Gooding, Jr.), who is

Welcome to another issue of Money on Your Terms.
The past couple weeks I have been focusing
on how to invest in dividend paying stocks to
give you the edge in creating wealth. This week
I will continue the journey by looking at another
key indicator to use to find those stellar businesses
that produce solid dividends. In the last sentence
I said stellar businesses not stocks. Remember,
we are looking for solid companies instead
of a stock price on the financial exchanges.
One of the most important parts of … Read More

Wouldn’t you like to have a continuous stream

One of the wealthiest men of all time said,
“Do you know the only thing that gives me pleasure?
It’s to see my dividends coming in.”
One of my passions in life besides being a
financial coach is studying how rich people
acquired their wealth and how they invest their fortunes.

I once heard Donald Trump say that he much
rather learn from other’s mistakes. He states it
is a lot cheaper and a lot better than having to
experience the mistake himself. Trump calls
this “education.” Although I do not wish bad
things to happen to people, I do agree that we
can learn from other’s mistakes. Thus, this helps
avoid the misfortune and shortens the learning curve.
This week I would like to discuss the financial woes
of Internet millionaire Hasley Minor as an educational

I watched the ESPN TV program 30 for 30 entitled, “Broke”.
The show discusses what happens to a high percentage
of professional athletes who make millions of dollars during
their professional careers and then end up broke and bankrupt.
Let’s say you just signed a $25 million dollar contract. What would
you do with the money? Would you spend it as fast as you got
the money in your hands or would you be responsible with it
and have a plan to invest the money to secure your future.

to win golf tournaments. Jack would only take a shot
when he had a crisp, clear imagine of himself making
the golf shot, … Read More

When it comes time to hiring a contractor or handyman to do work on our
homes, we all envision that it will get done right. No one wants to experience
those horror stories you see on TV or hear from others about how
the job never got done properly or they got ripped off. I certainly have
my share of stories to tell about the mistakes I made when hiring a
contractor or handyman.
It is important to find the right person who will do an outstanding job
