How to calculate your return in an investment?

That is the question I always get. But that’s wrong. You should start by what’s the return that you need to get from an investment to make it worthy. That’s the real thing. Is it 5%, 10% or 15%? Would it be the same if the interest rates are 3%, 5% or 8%? You can get the answer in the course below Investing better than 99% of people But for now… let’s go back to the question. It’s such a recurring question that you’ll even find dozens of articles, posts, or videos on YouTube trying to answer...

It's not the same to have money as to be rich. And people get it wrong all the time. So, I repeat. Money and wealth are completely different things. Not knowing the difference between these two concepts can lead you to make terrible financial decisions. Listen. Money is just the result of having a good income. I’ve been there… If you dine in restaurants every weekend, travel frequently, have an expensive car, and a nice house, one thing is clear: you have money. No matter how much debt you...

You are poor enough not to worry about investing your money. This is a reality. When you don't invest your own money, you are losing money, and freedom. If you didn't understand that, read it again. You are poor enough not to worry about investing your money Not just because of inflation but because our money is a useful lever. Very useful. Critical. Essential. Life saver. Creating money thanks to our money is a unique sensation. Exchanging time for money is respectable, I still do it. But it...

I few years ago, I decided to go on a road trip across the USA. There is no country better in the world to do that. Good company, a road, a car, and music. My wife was the company and the responsible of the music. She decided to put all the music we loved and create 6 CD with MP3 files… If you are old enough, you know what I’m talking about… No Spotify. Then something happened. Technical difficulties, i.e., or being too much in a hurry. I don’t know. But there we were in the car… aiming the...

I was coming from leaving my son in daycare. A stroll… some fresh air. Lost in my thoughts. And I passed by and smelled that amazing coffee. And I love coffee. I ordered my coffee. I got my place… I breathed… tasting a latte at perfect temperature… But… I realized that I was surrounded. Surrounded by a horde of chatbots with a salary and severance pay and their plastic laptops from behind. Their HPs, DELL and their ThinkPads. Excel, excel, excel. PowerPoint, Outlook, more Excel. Sharepoints…...

It was Christmas. One of my trips to my parents’ town in Spain. I was called to a meeting by two well known “businessmen” or “hombres de negocios” of the town. They wanted to “propose us a business”. It was a few years ago, and by that time, I still loved “talking about business”. Drinks, a bar, and talking about business. I couldn’t help it. I reacted like my cats. No matter if they are on the third floor of my townhouse, the moment that I open a can of wet food, they arrive to their plates...

More time

Many people dream to have “more time”. More time for what? I believe people don't understand the luxury of being able to think about what you want to think about. I mean, to think about a new business, a new investment, new holidays or learn the next thing. When you have the luxury of being able to think in a way that practically nothing can distract you… you got freedom. Freedom of thought from the moment you wake up. Also on Sunday night, Monday morning or Friday evening. People don’t...

Sunday. Terrible Sundays… Many people spend their lives sitting on their shabby couch, wearing dinosaur slippers, watching TV as if it’s going to give them the key to existence. And Sundays are one of those days where this picture is too common… If that’s your case, keep reading because today’s email will interest you. So put down the remote, grab a pen and paper, and take note because this is important. And if not… never mind, keep reading, there is always something you can learn… if you...

There is a bubble. Now it’s not the time. When prices go down. When the economy goes better. When I get the pay raise. When I get the bonus. When the government changes. When the law changes. The numbers don’t add up now. When I save a bit more. When interest rates go down. After the next announcement of the FED, the European Central Bank and the chorus of the church of my neighbour. When there are more legal guarantees. When inflation goes up. When they start protecting property owners....
