What did you learn at school?
Mostly we learn at school how to a good employee or worker, to follow the system and not to make mistakes (to be safe by getting a job and the so-called job security and pension).
The system wants us to go to school, college or university to get skills for a job so that we give our hours to receive a monthly paycheck.
We are taught to buy into the 40-40-40 Plan: . It simply means," work on a JOB, 40 hours a week for 40 years and retire on 40% of your BASIC salary". Sounds familiar?
What should we be taught?
The problem is that our jobs definitely are not secure and there is an unemployment rate of more than 50% in South Africa. Furthermore, our state pensions are earmarked to be used to finance our dysfunctional and bankrupt SOE's (State Owned Enterprises) and probably the new National Health Insurance (NHI) planned for South Africa.
We need to be taught about becoming business owners or investors - the right side of Robert Kiyosaki's Cashflow Quadrant:
Here is a very interesting The Rich Dad radio show talk of Robert Kiyosaki with Bryan Caplan (Professor of Economics at George Mason University and author of the book "The Case Against Education"):
We should open our mindset to becoming an Investor and set aside some funds (save at least 10% of your earnings and another 10% should be used to further your financial education). The 10% that you use to further your financial education can be invested in passive programs such as MTI (Mirror Trading International) to accumulate additional funds to invest in your education.
If like me, you only got exposed to this at a late stage in life, I would invest the 10% in higher-risk opportunities such as MTI and the NEEW Global Investment Fund (launching an STO or Secure Token Offering on the Etherium Blockchain that is backed by a Global Investment Portfolio of more than $100 Million in 21 industries).
To learn more on the NEEW Global Investment Fund starting at $100 (you can pay this off at $20 over 5 months and will get 800 CRU units - expected to be worth more than $2 each at registering on the CryptoCurrency Exchanges later this year), see: http://passiveprofits.co.za/neew
To register with MTI and invest a minimum of $100 (about R2 000):

The medium to long-term price prediction of Bitcoin looks very good and although it fluctuates, the price has an upward movement over the short to medium term, as can be seen in the graph above. $10 000 per Bitcoin is the average prediction within the next few years and some even predict as high as $100 000 and they give rational arguments to back this. See the co-founder and partner at Morgan Creek Digital, Mr Anthony Pompliano’s prediction for December 2021 and the Forbes interview with Nexo co-founder Antoni Trenchev where he states that Bitcoin is the new Digital Gold and he is more conservative at predicting a price of $50 000 per Bitcoin by end 2020. See the following 2 articles that would give you further peace of mind: – The case for a small allocation to Bitcoin by Wences Casares, the CEO of Xapo, posted on 11 April 2019 – Bitcoin The Next Bitcoin Bull Rally Will Be Totally Different From 2017 One by Sylvain Saurel in the AltCoin Magazine
The time is NOW to Gather and Grow your Bitcoin There are a lot of investors who are speculating with Bitcoin and other Cryptocurrencies because they are in nature volatile depending on market supply and demand. They see investing in Bitcoin as a short-term investment and they make a good income from buying when the Bitcoin Price is Low and selling when it is high. It is reasonably easy to do, as all you need to get started is some starting capital and a free Luno account. Luno has a live link to a Bitcoin (BTC) and even Etherium (ETH) exchange where you can place your buy order at a low price when the currency is at a low price point and then selling when it is at a higher price point. This can be done several times daily or weekly. However, I am talking about holding Bitcoin (HODL) for a long-term such as 3 to 5 years and then cashing out on the growth when it is at an unprecedented high. I purchased 1 Bitcoin in April 2014 for $419 of about R6 300. I can recall that there
Everything to pay to others makes you their slave! The best book that I would strongly recommend is "The Richest Man in Babylon" by George S. Clason: Click on the image to access an audio reading of the book Here is a 7-minute summary: In essence, the following are the key points: Pay Yourself First Take Action Wealth is not a Matter of Income Act when the time is right The POWER of Passive Income Pay Yourself First First, take 10% from any income you obtain and place it in a separate bank account. I recommend Capitec Bank Limited, as your bank costs are low and you can open 4 additional accounts that are linked to your main account. Name it something like "Invest". Then also take a further 10% and place it in another account that you call something like "Educate". I also have two other sub-accounts, one called "Holiday" and the other "Emergency" or "Unplanned". I save about R2000
