How To Build Income And Cashflows W/ Buck Joffrey, Best-Selling Financial Author

“You are not buying stocks, bonds, mutual funds, you are not buying real estate, you are buying income.”
— Buck Joffrey

Greetings, SuperFriends!

Today we are going to take a slightly different topic, a different side of Becoming SuperHuman, and talk about probably what is the least discussed topic on this show, which is financially Becoming SuperHuman.

To do that, we’re joined by a friend of mine from Genius Network. His name is Buck Joffrey and he runs Wealth Formula, which is about helping overworked but well-paid individuals look for a better life. They define wealth as the freedom to do what you want with your life, which is exactly how I define it, and they help people reimagine what wealth accumulation can mean, and, most importantly, relearn some of those core fundamentals that we’ve all been taught, like “invest in the stock market” and “trust your wealth advisor”.

I decided to have Buck on the show because I took his course and I was wowed by it. There were a lot of things I knew from business school and from interacting with millionaires and business luminaries, but there also were a lot of things I didn’t know, which I really needed to hear. I think this episode is a welcome dose of “Hey, wake up, you have all these opportunities”, and I think you folks are really going to enjoy it.

Favorite Quotes from Buck Joffrey:

“Fundamentally the biggest problem with [the conventional] model is that it relies very much on chance.”
“You don’t really care how much your business is worth if you are not planning to sell it.”
“Real estate is a great place to start because a lot of people understand the concept.”
“It’s not realistic to try and create this passive income stream for yourself without making money in the first place.”
“Forget everything they tell you, and start over from scratch.”
