Our Method

First of all, you’ve got to understand what method we use in order to achieve financial freedom. This is not a method that is set in stone and of course, there are many ways to achieve it. We just focus on a specific way to achieve it a bit quicker than usual.

This method came to me after years of searching for that perfect job. The kind of job where you can be financially free and not have to listen to someone else telling you what to do every day. The type of job where you can be the boss. Where you decide when you want to work and where you want to work.

Sounds too good to be true hey? Well, it isn’t. All it takes is some hard work and dedication.

The method I am talking about is my blog and invest method. If you want to learn more bout this, you can read my post, Financial Freedom: Blog And Invest, or continue to get started.

Start here

When I started thinking of becoming my own boss, I did things the wrong way around. I started investing in real estate and only after a while did I start to blog. This is not wrong, but it is sometimes a bit difficult to start investing if you don’t have any startup capital available.

This is why I will always suggest to start your blog, get it up and running, and as soon as you start seeing profits, start thinking of investing that money into property.

The thing about blogging is, you can achieve a point where you are making a good amount of money, a lot sooner than with property investing. Property investing can be seen as long-term investing.

Blogging

The first thing you can do to start your online business is signning up for a WordPress account. You can do this by following this link. Here you will find the following page.

Simply click on get started and it will take you to the next window. In the next window, simply click on start with a blog. You will make use of the website option, only when you have an existing business which you want to promote. This can be something like a construction business, hardware shop, etc.

After you have clicked on the start with a blog button, you can choose your theme. Please note that this is not necessary right now and I would suggest clicking on skip, for now. You will get a chance to choose your theme in just a short while.

 

Now starts the exciting part. You will be given the chance to choose a domain name for your site. If you’re not sure what a domain name is, click here to find out more about domain names and what to know before choosing one.

When you type in your preferred domain name, you will get certain options to choose from. I would suggest not using the free wordpress.com domain seeing that this could complicate your life in the future. Trust me, I speak from experience.

I always suggest that people make use of a .com domain because it is the industry standard. When people see a .com domain, they automatically trust the site more than when they’re seeing a different domain.

If you already own a domain name that is hosted by an external company like Blue host, then you have the option to map your domain.

You will now be given the option to choose the right plan for your blog. If you are new to blogging and the online world and still a bit overwhelmed, I would advise you to make use of the personal plan.

This way, you will be able to make use of a custom domain name, together with a few added extras.

If on the other hand, you want the full package with all the extra’s, the Business package is the one for you. It might seem like quite a lot to pay to have a blog, but once you are in a position of making money from your site, you will realize that it is definitively worth it.

Once you’re all set up and ready to go, I want you to log into your WordPress admin area. You can do this by typing in your domain name followed by /admin.

Here is where you will do all your blogging from. You can save this as a favorite in your web browser because you will be coming to this page a lot.

Below, is a video from Brad at Learn Web Code, to help you with the navigation in the admin area.

Unfortunately, I cannot teach you everything about blogging in one day. Blogging is a continual learning experience. Even the pro’s keep on learning new tactics and skills to improve their blogs.

The best advice I can give you is to keep reading up on ways to improve your blogging skills as well as your writing skills. You can also check out the rest of my website for tips.

Like I said in the beginning, we are here to help you succeed. Don’t feel shy or hesitate to ask any questions. I will help you in any way that I can.

Real estate investing

Okay, so you’ve got your blog up and running and you’re ready to start with real estate investing? Or, you are like me and want to do both at the same time. Either way, there is no wrong or right.

The point remains, blogging will be seen as a way to make extra money which we can then use to invest in our real estate investments. The sooner you pay off your property, the sooner you can live off the rent income.

Unfortunately, I cannot tell you exactly which property to buy in your area in order to assure you get a good deal. Each country and area have its own behaviors and statistics and that is why it is up to you to do the necessary research about the specific areas around you.

The good part is, I can and will teach you everything you need to know in order to be sure you follow the right procedures when it comes to property investing. I will also give you insight into books that I’ve read like Robert Kiyosaki’s Rich Dad Poor Dad, which have changed the way I think about money and investing.

I will guide you in certain areas where I have already made mistakes. This way you can learn from my mistakes and not go through the same process that I did.
