Automatic Funding Strategy

Hi, it’s Peter Aquart of American Wealth Builders.

I want to share with you one of the most powerful and life-changing strategies that I’ve ever encountered.

I call it the “automatic funding strategy” or the “1-to-1 strategy” and it can change how you view your life and view your investing.

It was inspired by Robert Kiyosaki.

Kiyosaki tells the story of wanting a car. Rather than going to buy a car with the money in his pocket, he used the money to buy an investment that paid for his car.

Here’s why I think this is so powerful:

Most of us are used to investing for the goal of funding our retirement through the depletion method. That is: we invest because we want a big amount of money at retirement that we draw down to zero.

That means we have to work for decades to get that large number.

And it’s actually kind of difficult for us to think about: it’s such a big number and retirement can seem so far away… it’s almost too conceptual (which I believe is one of the key reasons why many Americans fail to save enough for retirement).

But Kiyosaki’s approach is different – and inspiring…

Instead of working and saving for a big retirement number, we should work and invest that money for today’s expenses. Instead of investing for a big dollar amount to use at the age of 65, get financial freedom earlier by investing for today’s expenses.

That’s where the 1-to-1 funding strategy comes in: Invest in turnkey properties for specific costs and expenses in your life.

Got a mortgage on your home? Invest in a turnkey property whose monthly cash flow covers your mortgage payments.

Then invest in another turnkey property to cover the taxes and insurance.

Invest in another turnkey property or two to cover your monthly utility bills.

And maybe another one to cover ongoing costs like repairs, lawn care, etc.

Own a car? Invest in a turnkey property to cover the car payments.

Then invest in another turnkey property to cover insurance, fuel, and repairs.

Got kids in school? Invest in a turnkey property to cover their clothes, books, school.

Then invest in more turnkey properties in a Coverdell for their college.

Plan to buy groceries this month? (Of course you do.) Invest in a turnkey property whose cash flow covers your grocery bill each month.

Want to make sure your large family is clothed in the latest fashions? Invest in a turnkey property whose cash flow can be used for clothes, shoes, haircuts, etc.

Love vacations? Invest in a turnkey property that puts money aside throughout the year for an amazing vacation each year.

Want health coverage? Invest in a turnkey property that either covers your health insurance premiums or covers costly prescriptions.

You might be reading this list and thinking, “whoa, that’s a lot of properties to invest in”…

But consider this: You could spend the money once on those expenses and it would be gone. Or, you could invest the money into a turnkey property to pay those expenses and you’ll have that expense paid forever.

And long after the expenses is gone (such as: if you no longer have kids in school), you’ll still have the property paying you month after month for some other purpose.

In other words: you could spend $30,000 on a car. Or, you could spend $30,000 on a turnkey property and that will buy your cars from now until you no longer drive.

And let’s not forget about the intrinsic value of the investment itself. If you ever need to sell, you have that value preserved and even growing.

That’s 1-to-1 funding strategy: You invest in turnkey properties that match your current costs and expenses in life, whatever they happen to be for you.

I believe this scenario is far more realistic and achievable than saving up for a conceptual and long-time-from-now retirement. It’s an active, measurable way to see how you can achieve financial freedom quickly.

Not only that, it builds on itself: even if you can’t invest in ALL the turnkey properties that will cover ALL of your life’s expenses today, you can start with a couple… say, the ones to cover your mortgage and car payments. That will free up your income (income that would have been put toward the mortgage and car payment) to pay for another turnkey property. And then another. And then another.

Every time you invest in a turnkey property, you keep more of your earned income in your pocket because you’re “transferring” the expense to be covered by a turnkey investment.

If retirement seems far away…

If you’re worried that you might not be able to save enough for retirement…

If you want to achieve financial freedom sooner (starting the process THIS WEEK!)…

Then start looking at each of your life’s expenses as opportunities to be covered by turnkey investments.

It’s powerful and game-changing.
