Creating generational wealth has been on my mind a lot recently. It is one of my biggest goals I wish to achieve at some point of my life. I absolutely know that I want to leave something behind for my future family. My grandparents did so and I’m determined to do the same.
My grandparents, on my fathers side were entrepreneurs. My grandmother was a beautician, while my grandfather was a carpenter. I never met my grandfather but from the the stories I am told, he was an incredible man and we share the same sign (Aquarius). Aside from having their own businesses, they acquired other assets that made them money. They had saved every hard earned penny from their crafts and assets.
Like many AA in their day, they were cheated out of/ or had some of their had assets stolen. That never stopped them, though. They were determined every single day for a better future. I’m here today, determined to do the exact same.
There are so many ways to acquire assets. Assets is basically money being made while you are sleeping and usually does not require a business. On my recent trip to my local book store, I purchased a book called Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki. Rich Dad, Poor Dad has taught me how my money should flow in order to keep more money in my pocket thus building wealth. One of the best things about this book are the charts for us visual learners.
He speaks about his own story of building wealth that is inspiring much like the many individuals I know personally who are generating their own wealth or taking the next step.
I’ve been thinking of so many ways I can acquire assets. It takes risks, mistakes and willingness to learn. I wish my grandparents were here today because I have so many questions I’d like to ask! It’s never too late to begin new a journey, especially if it’s means for a better future!
