Building Wealth through Multiple Streams of Income

Building Wealth through Multiple Streams of Income

Today, overidentifying with your job can be a risky thing. In this new economy, employees are finding employment tenuous. Company restructuring means pink slips, demotions and low wages for employees, making it difficult to do what my father was able to do—dedicate himself to one profession for thirty years.

As a car assemblyman for General Motors, he provided for a family of five. Mom remained a homemaker. Through his income alone, our family was able to purchase four properties and accumulate other investments. This was an awesome task for a former farmer from Mississippi.

That was then. But now, looking at a nine to five alone for financial security is unwise. Yet, accruing financial power necessitates investing, building a nest-egg for retirement, a college fund for your children and an emergency fund.

How can you diversify your ability to make money? How can you exert control over your talents and position them to supplement your income?

Consider being a part-time realtor.

The process of licensure takes less time than other careers. Pursuing it while working a full-time job is doable.

Secondly, as a realtor, you are also your own boss. Through hard work and focus, you have access to unlimited earning potential. By making sure you put your customers first and by providing the best for them, it is a sure-fire way to slowly build your reputation and grow your earnings. Unlimited income can result.

Lastly, the flexibility of the job makes it perfect for parents. Scheduling meetings with clients between your child’s doctor appointments, conferences with teachers and ballet practices, making this a desirable pursuit.

Streams of income are the best strategy to build wealth. You can better control your level of income and it guarantees earnings even in the case of job loss.  Becoming a realtor is an excellent way to subsidize your financial goals. The process of licensure is doable as you work a full-time job. The flexibility of the profession is an asset, and your earning potential is high. Who knows? You might enjoy it so much, it’ll become your next career!

California Buyers Still Can’t Afford Homes

The issue for California residential real estate remains the same. Poor affordability means that despite latent demand, buyers can’t afford the prices of homes in the Golden State. For that reason, many have left to find much cheaper homes in other states. Unemployment will likely be on the rise along with lower business profitability (tech sector continues to lay off workers) which means fewer buyers are likely for 3 to 6 months.

The stronger consumer optimism is running against sticky inflation and a likelihood the FED can’t lower interest rates. But will that discourage buyers in California? Demand is always intense in CA. No other place offers what California has, and buyers today do seem to put lifestyle at the top of their list.
