Bonds Explained for Beginners | Bond Trading 101

Earn up to 1 Year Free: https://bit.ly/2oul70h Free Resources: https://bit.ly/2wymZbJ A bond is a type of loan issued to some type of entity such as a business or government by an investor. It’s similar to borrowing money from a lender if you’ve ever purchased a home or car before. Sometimes businesses need more money than the banks will offer them, so they issue bonds as a way to raise more capital. Governments can also issue bonds when they need more money for things like roads or parks. Bonds are considered safer on the risk spectrum for investments, but they also typically carry a lower return. Benjamin Graham, author of the intelligent investor and Warren Buffets mentor, recommends holding a portfolio of 75% stocks and 25% bonds during a bull market and 75% bonds and 25% stocks during a bear market. As opposed to other investments which are considered equity, bonds are considered debt which means that if a company goes under, it must repay all bondholders before stockholders. This is due to the fixed interest nature of the bond. When the investor purchases a bond at what’s called the face value, they are paid interest, known as the coupon or yield. The reason it’s referred to as coupon is because back when bonds were actually paper, investors would physically have to clip coupons to redeem their interest. Anyway, the investor is paid a coupon on the bond until the loan is fully paid back by the issuer. This is known as the maturity date. Interest payment frequency and the maturity date is determined prior to the purchase of the bond. For example, if I purchase a $1,000, 3-year bond with a 5% coupon, I know I’ll receive $50 in interest each year for 3 years. Now it’s important to note that Bonds can vary in risk and return A AAA bond is the best bond you can buy while a Ba bond and lower are more speculative and are known as Junk bonds When it comes to bonds, the higher the return, the higher the risk. The lower the return, the lower the risk. Bonds with a longer maturity date are also riskier and carry a higher return. Typically government bonds will be safer than corporate bonds. When it comes to taxation, corporate bonds are taxed regularly while some bonds like municipal and other government bonds are tax-exempt. A bond can also be secured or unsecured With an unsecured bond, you may lose all of your investment if the company fails while with a secured bond, the company pledges specific assets to give shareholders if they fail to repay their bonds. Although bonds are considered a “safer” investment, they still do come with risks. When you purchase a bond, interest rates are out of your control and may fluctuate. Interest rates are controlled by the U.S. treasury, the federal reserve, and the banking industry. This means that if specified in your agreement, the company may be able to issue a call provision which is an early redemption of the bond. While not always the case, companies will take advantage of lower interest rates to pay back loans early. This leaves you with a lower return than what you expected. Bonds are also inversely proportional to interest rates so when interest rates go up, bonds go down and vice versa. Bonds can also be traded between investors prior to its maturity date. A bond that’s traded below the market value is said to be trading at a discount while a bond trading for more than it’s face value is trading at a premium. Bonds can be a great way to diversify your investment portfolio, however, they can also be quite complex. You can use investment platforms like Fidelity, E-Tade, or Charles Shwabb to learn more about specific types of bonds. For today’s video, we will be using Fidelity.

8 Types of Investments You Should Know
 
10:11
Free Beginners Stock Investing Course -- http://bit.ly/2CgSOLH Subscribe For More Videos -- http://bit.ly/2BKP2u4 There are many different types of investments an individual can make, however, not all investments are created equally.  Investment number 1 is a high-interest savings account. This is one of the safest ways to invest your money because there's no volatility. By placing your money in a high-interest savings account, you’re earning annual interest on your money. Now the reason I specifically say “high” interest savings accounts is because typical savings accounts offer little to no interest at all. A typical savings account usually offers around 0.10% while a high-interest account usually offers around 1.3%. Now 1.3% is by no means a high return, but the benefit here is security. You know that when you invest your money in a savings account, you’re guaranteed at least the amount you invested plus the interest earned each year. The second type of investment is a money market account. This is also one of the safest ways to invest your money because there's no volatility. I’m not going to go into too much detail because money market accounts are just another type of high-interest savings account. Although you have access to your funds with a money market account, you typically have less access than with a savings account. With a money market account, the interest rates vary, however, this type of investment usually returns somewhere between 1% and 2%. If you choose a money market account, make sure there are no monthly fees. The third type of investment is a certificate of deposit which is more commonly referred to as a CD. This is also one of the safest ways to invest your money because there's no volatility. A CD is a promissory note from a bank that pays a fixed interest over a specified amount of time. A CD is very similar to a savings account, however, it’s a very illiquid investment, meaning it’s not easily converted to cash. With a CD, investors typically set a maturity date, usually between 1 month and 5 years, which means that the investor will have to pay a penalty fee if they withdraw the money early. The fourth type of investment is a bond. Although bonds are still one of the safest investments you can make, they are just a bit riskier than the previous three. A bond is, in essence, an I Owe You Note issued by the government (local, state, or federal) or corporations. When either a company or the government is looking to fund a new project, they may issue bonds to raise the money. There are a few components to bonds. The bonds face value is the amount of money that was borrowed. The coupon rate is the rate of interest on the face value. The maturity date is when the bonds face value will be paid back to the lender. The fifth type of investment is a mutual fund. A mutual fund is basically a collection of stocks. Mutual funds vary in risk depending on the type of fund, but for the most part, mutual funds are safer than just stocks. Mutual funds are a great option for investors with little cash to invest. Some funds have investment minimums, but others have no minimums. Mutual funds are safer because they are pre-diversified collections of investments. There are many different types of mutual funds such as technology funds, bond funds, real estate funds, energy funds, foreign funds, emerging market funds, and so on. Mutual funds are operated by a fund manager that chooses and maintains the portfolio. The sixth type of investment is an Exchange Traded Fund, also known as an ETF. ETFs are similar to mutual funds, however, they are a bit riskier and are traded on an exchange like stocks. Mutual funds can only be bought or sold at the end of the day at their Net Asset Value (NAV), whereas ETFs can be bought and sold at any point throughout the day. One advantage to ETFs over Mutual funds is that they are more tax advantages. ETFs are a more hands-on investment than mutual funds. The seventh type of investment is a stock which is riskier than ETFs because there is no diversification and it is a very hands-on investment. A stock is a share of ownership of a company. The eighth type of investment is real estate. Now, this type of investment requires a lot of capital, but is a very worthwhile investment. There are two main ways you can invest in real estate: Flipping properties and renting properties. So just to recap, the 8 investments mentioned in this video are some common investments along with their riskiness. If you're a beginning investor, I encourage you to look into each of these investments further to see where you may be comfortable investing your money. In the next video, I’m going to show you the easiest way you can invest your money. I’ll see you then.

Top 5 Mutual Funds to Buy in 2018
 
10:23
Free Resources: https://bit.ly/2wymZbJ My pick for the best mutual fund with a 1-year return is the American Funds New Perspective Fund® Class F-1 which boasts a 1-year return of 28.78%. You can find this fund with the ticker symbol NPFFX. Now although future returns are all speculative, that is a phenomenal return for any short-term investor. Hypothetically that means that if you invest $2,500, which is the minimum to invest, today and sell out at the end of the year, you’ll have made $719.50. Now, this fund is of a moderate risk and has 319 holdings, the top 5 of which are Amazon, Facebook Inc. A, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co Ltd, Naspers Ltd Class N, and Microsoft Corporation. This fund is technically a world fund which is why you see such a diverse set of holdings. As mentioned earlier this fund is a 5-star fund and has no transaction fees. Alright, so my pick for the best 5-year fund is the Fidelity® 500 Index Fund — Institutional Premium Class which boasts a 5-year return of 15.78%. You can find this fund with the ticker symbol FXAIX.  This fund has no minimum so hypothetically if you invest $2,500 today and sell out in 5 years, you’ll have made roughly $2,703.50 which I found using a custom Excel calculator that accounts for compound interest. Moving into my third pick which is for the mutual fund with the best 10-year return. The fund I pick for this category is the Fidelity® Nasdaq® Composite Index Fund which boasts a 10-year return of 11.09%. You can find this fund with the ticker symbol FNCMX. Similar to the first fund, this fund has a minimum of $2,500 so hypothetically if you invest $2,500 today and sell out in 10 years, you’ll have made roughly $7,156.32 which I again found using a custom Excel calculator that accounts for compound interest. This fund is of a moderate risk and consists of 2,196 holdings, the top 5 of which are Apple Inc., Microsoft Corp, Facebook Inc. A, Amazon Inc., and ALPHABET INC CL C. So I think we’re starting to see a trend here between the top holdings of these funds. As our world becomes more tech-driven, leading companies such as apple an Microsoft will continue to grow. Alright, my fourth pick which is for the best foreign mutual fund is the Fidelity® International Enhanced Index Fund which boasts one year return of 27.59%, a five-year return of 9.35%, and a ten-year return of 2.3%. Because of its weak 10 year return, I would consider this a short to mid-year hold which would be around 2 to 5 years. You can find this fund with the ticker symbol FIENX. Like most Fidelity funds, this fund has a minimum of $2,500 so hypothetically if you invest $2,500 today and sell out in 5 years, you’ll have made roughly $1,406.93. This fund is of a moderate risk and consists of 264 holdings, the top 5 of which are, excuse my pronunciation, NOVARTIS AG (REG), NESTLE SA (REG), ROCHE HLDGS AG (GENUSSCHEINE), TOTAL SA (FRAN), and BAYER AG. So it's nice to see some different holdings than the last funds but I’m sure you saw some familiar names there like Bayer and Nestle. Now the benefit to holding a foreign fund is that it’s less correlated with the US stock market. That means that during a recession, your foreign holdings may fair better than your US holdings. Okay, so my fifth and final pick which is for the best balanced mutual fund is the T. Rowe Price Personal Strategy Growth Fund which has one year return of 21.91%, a five-year return of 11.60%, and a ten-year return of 7.06%. Although a 10-year return of 7.06% is still decent, I would also recommend this as a medium-term hold. You can find this fund with the ticker symbol TRSGX. This fund has a minimum of $2,500 so hypothetically if you invest $2,500 today and sell out in 5 years, you’ll have made roughly $1,827.74. This fund is of a lower risk and consists of Cash, convertibles, domestic bonds, preferred stock, foreign bonds, foreign stock, domestic stock, and others, whatever that means. Because this is a balanced fund, it’s already diversified which makes it a lot easier for the investor. The reason I recommend this fund is because it has a lengthy history of excellent performance and it’s already diversified which makes it a nice holding during a recession.   Thanks for watching and make sure to subscribe so that you don’t miss any future content.

Free Resources: https://bit.ly/2wymZbJ One benefit to investing in real estate is that it's independent from the stock market.

Investing in real estate just offers an extra level of diversification. Recently, I started using Fundrise, an online real estate crowdfunding platform. In this Fundrise review, I will walk you through the main dashboard layout along with my thoughts so far on the platform.

Free Resources: https://bit.ly/2wymZbJ I know a lot of people who hate finance. They know it’s important, but they have no interest in learning about what they should and shouldn’t be doing with their money.

Wealthsimple Review 2018 | The Pros & Cons
 
11:18
Get $10,000 Managed Free: https://bit.ly/2NrpEv1 Wealthsimple Platform Review: https://youtu.be/n0A8Q3To0bI In this video, I’ll be reviewing a financial platform called Wealthsimple. For those of you who aren’t familiar, Wealthsimple is a robo investment platform that in essence acts as an online personal advisor for investors. When you create an account with Wealthsimple, you’ll begin by taking a brief assessment. Based on your results, a personal portfolio will be created based on your risk tolerance. Now as opposed to other trading platforms or in-person investment advisors, Wealthsimple costs only 0.5% a year for investors and also requires no account minimum. Although Wealthsimple costs more than its competitor services like Wealthfront and Betterment, 0.5% a year is still very cheap compared to an in-person advisor. Wealthsimple does also offer a premium account called Wealthsimple Black for investors with over $100 thousand dollars. Comes with a few added benefits such as a 0.4% yearly management fee, increased tax efficiency, VIP airline lounge access which is pretty fancy, global based planning whih to be honest, I’m not really sure what that means. Wealthsimple can be accessed on your computer, smartphone or tablet and has an incredible design that’s super easy to use. For more information on the Wealthsimple platform itself, I’ll be releasing a behind the scenes demo of that on Thursday so stay tuned. One thing that I find interesting about Wealthsimple is that they give you the option to invest in a socially responsible portfolio or a Halal portfolio. A socially responsible portfolio is ethical and will not only benefit you but will also benefit the environment. A Halal portfolio is one that complies with Islamic investing principles. This is one aspect that really helps set Wealthsimple apart from its competitors. Wealthsimple offers 5 different account types: Individual Joint (For multiple owners such as a relative, spouse, or business partner) Retirement (Traditional, Roth, SEP IRAs) Trust (Set up an account on behalf of someone else) Smart Savings which would be used for something like an emergency fund So whatever stage you’re at in life, chances are Wealthsimple may be able to help you. So whether you’re considering investing with Wealthsimple or not, here are some of the pros and cons: First, let’s talk about the pros: Wealthsimple has no account minimum so there’s no commitment when you open an account. You have the option to invest in socially responsible or Halal portfolios They offer real human advice are available to help in case you ever need any assistance Wealthsimple can save you time and stress because they automatically rebalance your portfolio for you Recurring deposits, portfolio rebalancing, dividend reinvestment, tax-loss harvesting They have an awesome design and user interface that’s great for tracking your portfolio. You’ll actually be able to see this in my video on Thursday. They are fully regulated, Insured, and secure You can invest if you live in Canada or the UK Invests in fractional shares meaning all of your money gets invested So here’s the deal.

Top 5 Online Course Hosting Platforms 2018 | Part 5
 
11:03
Earn up to 1 Year Free: https://bit.ly/2oul70h Free Resources: https://bit.ly/2wymZbJ Podia: https://bit.ly/2LGjyFl Teachable: https://bit.ly/2jOFJw1 Udemy: https://bit.ly/WbAESx Coursecraft: https://bit.ly/2aOysvq Thinkific: https://bit.ly/1lFVfTv In today's video I’m going to share with you my picks for the top 5 online course hosting platforms and I’ll also help you decide which one will be best for you. Here are my picks for the top 5 course hosting platforms in 2018. Coming in at number 5 is a platform called Podia. Podia is great for more experienced creators who already have an existing audience. Since it is a more premium platform, Podia doesn’t offer a free version and starts at $39 a month. Their mover plan gives you access to features such as online course hosting, digital downloads, email marketing, and zero transaction fees, but if you want to unlock features such as affiliate marketing and memberships, you’re going to have to upgrade to their shaker account which will cost you $79 a month. I feel Podia is an excellent platform for any creator who has an existing audience and who can afford to pay the price. For more info, I’ve added a link to their website in the description. Okay so coming in at number 4 is a platform called Teachable. Teachable is a very popular platform among creators and is pretty similar to Podia, however, their pricing structure is a bit different. Teachable offers 3 different accounts. Basic which will cost you $39 a month, professional which will cost you $99 a month, and business which will cost you $499 a month. In terms of features, a basic Teachable accounts allows you to launch drip campaigns which is when you slowly release content which is a really cool feature. Teachable also allows you to create quizzes but this is only available with their premium account. Now although Teachable has a little more functionality than Podia, it is a little pricier. Even with a Teachable Basic account, you’ll be paying a 5% transaction fee for every sale you make. With Podia’s Mover account there are no transaction fees. Raking at number 3 is Udemy. For those of you who don’t already have an existing following, this will be the best platform for you. Udemy is a platform that hosts courses by many different creators. This of it as a paid YouTube for online courses. The reason I recommend udemy for beginners is because it’s completely free to use and comes with a handful of tools and resources for new creators. When you create a course with Udemy, depending on the quality and success of your course, your course will rank in the search engines making it more visible on the Udemy platform. One downside to Udemy is that although you can set the pricing of your course, Udemy is frequently running deals that may mark down the price of your course. Unfortunately this is the price you have to pay for Udemy putting your course in the eyes of its visitors. Alright coming in at number two is Course Craft. Now CourseCraft is another platform that’s great for beginners because they offer a free account that still offers some pretty great features such as drip campaigns and promo codes. The problem though is that Coursecraft takes a 9% transaction fee for every sale and they cap your students at 100. That shouldn’t really be a problem though because once you hot that limit, you can easily upgrade to their club account which is only $23 a month. This plan will lower your transaction fee to 5% and also comes with a handful of additional features such as custom branding and forms and quizzes. Lastly, Coursecraft offers a society account which will run you $47 a month but comes with a 0% transaction fee and the ability to link a custom domain. And last but not least, the number one course hosting platform is Thinkific. Thinkific offers 4 different accounts, the first of which is free and still gives users 100% of their core features. As your course grows, you can then scale to their Essentials plan which is $49 a month, their business plan which is $99 a month, or their Advanced plan which is $279 a month. These pricier plans just add more advanced features but are not necessary to get started and start making money with your course. All-in-all, the 5 platforms I just showed you are all great for creators of all levels. If you’re a beginner and have never created an online course before and have no following then I would recommend starting with Udemy and then once you feel you’re ready, upgrade to a site like Social Links: Website: http://www.wharmstrong.com Twitter: http://bit.ly/2DBEhdz Facebook: http://bit.ly/2F5uB8a Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/wharmstrong1/ Disclaimer: Nothing published on my channel should be considered personal investment advice.

How to Optimize Your 401K | Blooom Review 2018
 
07:56
Free 401K Analysis: https://bit.ly/2wtxT3l Free Resources: https://bit.ly/2wymZbJ So for those of you who aren’t familiar, Blooom is a robo-401K management and optimization platform that aims to alleviate the high fees and stress that comes with managing your 401K. Blooom was started by 3 guys who left their jobs managing millionaire’s money and instead decided to build a platform that can benefit everyone. They created Blooom with simplicity in mind. Now just to clarify, in addition to 401K’s, Blooom also supports 401a, 403b, 457, or TPS. Now when it comes to fees, Blooom has a unique pricing structure. As opposed to a fixed percentage, Blooom charged a fixed rate of only $10 a month with no hidden fees regardless of how much you have invested. You also have the ability to cancel this plan at any time. Now as I mentioned, once you open your account, you’ll be given a recommended portfolio allocation based upon your target retirement age. This portfolio will most likely consist of a mixture between stock and bond index funds that span across a handful of different asset classes. Although you can change your asset allocation, one downside to Blooom is that they don’t take into account any other factors other than your age and target retirement date when determining your risk. Unlike other robo-advisors on the market, they don’t offer comprehensive pre-screening investments to help truly understand where you are in life and how much risk you can handle. Once your portfolio is set, Blooom will keep tabs on your portfolio and use advanced algorithms to automatically rebalance your portfolio as needed. Again, real quick, I just want to mention that I don’t use Blooom and I haven’t used it in the past. I know there are so many different platforms out there so I try to make these reviews as honest and as unbiased as possible so I can help you find the platform that’s best for you. So whether you’re considering investing with Blooom or not, here are some of the pros and cons: First, let’s talk about the pros: Blooom has no account minimum so there’s no commitment when you open an account. Their sole focus is to help you optimize your 401K so their platform and service is very straightforward They reduce hidden fees, help you diversify and set a proper asset allocation, rebalance your portfolio as time goes on. Professional account management and human advice when needed Their platform is simple to use and it takes less than 5 minutes to create an account. They are fully regulated, Insured, and secure The ability to link multiple accounts Works with any provider that offers an online account In terms of cons, there are a whole lot, but there are a few: $10 a month can be a bit pricey when you don’t have a lot yet invested Blooom is not available for IRAs Blooom is a very niche platform So all in all. Blooom is a great platform for anyone who’s looking to optimize their 401K. Whether you don’t have one yet, or your current 401K is through your work, Blooom has you covered and can help you reduce fees and make the most out of your investments. Once your existing 401K is linked, all you have to do is subscribe and let Blooom take care of the rest. Their specialty is 401K management so Blooom is perfect for anyone who wants to take a hands-off approach and let the pros handle it. In addition, Blooom offers human advice that’s not only related to your 401K. This is great for anyone who’s looking for an investment advisor but doesn’t want to pay the high in-person fees. Personally, I feel Blooom is a great platform for anyone who is either new to investing or who doesn’t want the hassle of maintaining their own 401K or related accounts. As I mentioned, Blooom is a very niche platform so it can be used in conjunction with any other investment platform such as Wealthfront, Betterment, Acorns or any platform like that. Keep in mind that Blooom is an investment so you can lose your money just as easy as you can make money. It’s always important to conduct enough research before you ever invest in anything.

Betterment Review 2018 | The Pros & Cons
 
12:04
Earn up to 1 Year Free: https://bit.ly/2oul70h Free Resources: https://bit.ly/2wymZbJ Betterment is a robo-investment platform that acts as an online personal advisor for investors. When you create an account with Betterment, you’ll begin by taking a brief assessment. Based on your results, a personal portfolio will be created based on your risk tolerance. Now as opposed to other trading platforms or in-person investment advisors, Betterment costs only 0.25% a year for investors and also requires no account minimum. This fee is comparable to one of its competitors Wealthfront and is actually less expensive than Wealthsimple which I also did a review on.0.25% a year is also a very low fee compared to in-person advisors. Now just like your other robo-investors out there, Betterment has some pretty cool features like 1.the ability to set recurring investments which can be helpful for anyone who struggles to save money, 2. automatic portfolio rebalancing which analyzes your portfolio and makes sure it’s always properly allocated, 3. fractional share investment which ensures every penny gets invested, 4. dividend reinvestment which was used by Warren Buffet and is what allowed him to turn millions into billions, 5. tax loss harvesting which can really help save you some money in taxes over the long-run, 6. and lastly the ability to chat with licensed financial professionals for anyone who has questions or needs help planning their future. One feature that I briefly mentioned was tax-loss harvesting and I want to go back to that because Betterment is on a mission to be the most tax efficient platform on the market. They offer what’s called a tax coordinated portfolio which uses automated asset location and tax loss harvesting. Betterment claims that over 30 years, this portfolio can increase your portfolio value by an estimated 15%. So whether you’re considering investing with Betterment or not, here are some of the pros and cons: First, let’s talk about the pros: Betterment has no account minimum so there’s no commitment when you open an account. Your portfolio is tailored toward you You have the option to invest in their socially responsible portfolio or their Goldman Sachs smart beta or Blackrock income portfolio. They offer real human advice are available to help in case you ever need any assistance They can save you time and stress because they automatically rebalance your portfolio for you Recurring deposits, fractional share investing, dividend reinvestment, tax coordinated portfolio They have an awesome design and user interface that’s great for tracking your portfolio. They are fully regulated, Insured, and secure Ability to link external accounts and see an overall view of your net worth In terms of cons, there aren't a whole lot, but there are a few: You must live in the United States Must be a premium member to have unlimited access to financial planning and external account analysis. Since they do invest for you, the platform is less transparent and you also lose control since you are not hand-picking your investments. Personally, I feel Betterment is a great platform for anyone who is either new to investing or who doesn’t want the hassle of maintaining their own investment portfolio. With Betterment, all you have to do is deposit your money and they take care of the rest. Betterment is also great for anyone who is looking to invest in either a Socially responsible portfolio. Betterment Primary Investment List U.S. Total Stock Market (VTI) U.S. Value Stocks - Large Cap (VTV) U.S. Value Stocks - Small Cap (VBR) International Developed Markets (VEA) International Emerging Markets (VWO) U.S. High Quality Bonds (AGG) U.S. Municipal Bonds (MUB) U.S. Inflation Protected Bonds (VTIP) International Developed Market Bonds (BNDX) International Emerging Market Bonds (EMB) U.S. Investment Grade Corporate Bonds (LQD) U.S. Short-Term Treasury Bonds (SHV) Social Links: Website: http://www.wharmstrong.com Twitter: http://bit.ly/2DBEhdz Facebook: http://bit.ly/2F5uB8a Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/wharmstrong1/ Disclaimer: Nothing published on my channel should be considered personal investment advice.

Now price will be a huge determining factor, but is it better to buy a single-family property or save up for a multi-family property? Each property type has its pros and cons. For example, a single-family home will be more affordable, but it will also yield less income. On the other hand, a multi-family property will be much more expensive, but it will also yield more per month. At the end of the day, it's completely up to the investor which they choose.

How to Go From Dead Broke to Millionaire in 2018
 
07:03
Learn How to Make Your Own Course for Free: https://youtu.be/PlVia4kB54w Free Resources -- https://bit.ly/2wymZbJ How to Make a Million Dollars in 1 Year I know what you’re thinking…this is bullshit. There is no possible way you can teach me to make a million dollars in 1 year. Hey, I understand, making $1 Million dollars in a year ain’t easy, but it is possible.  Let me start off by saying this isn’t a get rich quick scheme and this isn’t a scam. Look, I didn’t say how to EASILY make a million dollars in a year. I said how to Make a million dollars in a year.  Let me note that you don’t need special skills, a lot of money, or a huge following for this to work. You just need to be willing to work hard and be patient. The way you can make $1 M in a year is by making an online video course. Now, if that wasn’t what you were looking for, hear me out real quick. It’s 2018 and the world is changing. There was phenomenal growth in online courses last year and there is a massive trend toward online learning. I mean think about it. You’re currently learning online by watching this video.  Now you may be thinking, how can an online course make me a millionaire? Well, let me do some math for you.  You can price your course however you want, but here are some examples of how many courses you’d have to sell at different prices to make $1 M dollars.  To make $1 M dollars you’d have to sell: 100,000 courses at $10  20,000 courses at $50 courses 10,000 courses at $100 4,000 courses at $250 2,000 courses at $500 1,000 courses at $1,000 Now I know what you’re thinking. Who on earth would pay $1,000 bucks for an online course? A lot of people actually. It’s all about delivering value and if consumers feel they will be getting their moneys worth in content, they will definitely pay $1,000 dollars.   So now you may be thinking, don’t I need a large following to even get my course noticed? No. I ran an experiment where I made a 1-hour course on a topic that I knew nothing about. I purposely made the production terrible so that I could just test if my course would get stumbled upon. I priced the course at $10 and made my first sale within the first week. In all, I grossed $64. Now I know that’s not a lot of money, but my goal wasn’t to make money. If my goal was to make money, I would have put more effort into the course. My goal was to test whether a crappy video course will even get noticed and it did.  All you need is something your passionate about that you can share with others. For example, if you love basketball, make a course on how to become a superstar player. If you’re great at making apps, make a course on coding for beginners. If you’re an amazing artist, make a course on how to paint like Picasso. If you’re great at the guitar, make a course on how to play the guitar like a pro.  If you have the passion and knowledge, share it! Trust me, there are people out there who are willing to learn and the internet has made sharing your knowledge with others incredibly easy.  With that said, some of you are probably students or work full time and feel you won’t have the time to create a video course. I understand that life gets busy but trust me, you can accomplish a lot in a year. Let’s say you work 9 hours a day and you sleep 9 hours a day. That's 18 out of 24 hours. That leaves 6 hours left in the day. Think about it, if you spent only 1 hour a day on your course, that’s 7 hours a week, 28 hours a month, and 336 hours a year. That’s plenty of time to produce an outstanding video course.  So here’s the deal. If this video gets a lot of engagement as in likes, comments, and shares, it means that you believe me and you’re interested in becoming a millionaire by creating your own video course.  If that’s the case and this video receives 15,000 views, then I will create a step by step guide to creating your own successful video course. Think of it as a blueprint. I’ve learned quite a bit from the two courses I’ve made and from studying others. I’m confident that I can help you create not only a popular but profitable video course.  I’m excited to be sharing this with you and I’m confident that you make money doing what you love. Go ahead and post in the comments what topic you‘d like to make an online course on.  Alright everyone, thanks for watching and the clock starts now. You have 1 year to make $1 million dollars. Good luck. Social Links: Website: www.wharmstrong.com Twitter: https://twitter.com/wharmstrong1 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/wharmstrong1/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/wharmstrong1/

M1 Finance Review 2018 | The Pros & Cons
 
13:45
Create a Free M1 Account: https://mbsy.co/m1finance/39751879 In this video, I'm going to review a financial platform called M1 Finance. So for those of you who aren’t familiar, M1 Finance is a hybrid investment platform that allows individuals to invest in public stocks or ETFs that are traded on major exchanges like the NYSE, NASDAQ, and BATS. M1 Finance can be accessed on your computer, smartphone or tablet and is beautifully designed and easy to use. For more information on the M1 platform itself, I’ll be releasing a behind the scenes demo of that on Thursday. One feature that’s unique about M1 is your ability to build what they call “Pies”. A pie is essentially your portfolio and the slices are your individual investments. Now if you’re a new investor and don’t know how to build your own portfolio, you can choose from an array of pies that were already created by M1’s expert financial team. M1 offers 4 different account types: 1. Individual 2. Joint (Relative, spouse, or domestic partner) 3. Retirement (Traditional, Roth, SEP IRAs) and if you are looking to open a retirement account, M1 offers complimentary rollover assistance which is nice. 4. Trust (Set up an account on behalf of someone else) So whatever stage you’re at in life, chances are M1 may be able to help you. So whether you’re considering investing with M1 or not, here are some of the pros and cons: First, let’s talk about the pros: 1. M1 is free so you won’t have to pay any fees - which is awesome 2. Unlike other robo-advisors, M1 is transparent and gives you complete control since they let you choose what you invest in. 3. M1 can save you time because they automatically rebalance your portfolio for you 4. You can set recurring investments to help keep you on track 5. They have an awesome design and user interface that’s great for tracking your portfolio. You’ll actually be able to see this in my video on Thursday. 6. They are fully regulated, Insured, and secure 7. For accounts with over $25K they offer M1 Borrow which is a hassle-free way to borrow money. In terms of cons, there aren't a whole lot, but there are a few: 1. M1 doesn’t offer any investing advice so if you’re brand new to investing, you may be better off with Stash or Acorns. 2. Although M1 uses a tax-efficient strategy, I don’t believe it’s as effective as tax loss harvesting. You guys can correct me if I’m wrong. 3. Lastly, this isn’t really a con but keep in mind though that M1 is an investment so you can lose your money just as easy as you can make money. Although M1 has pre-made portfolios, you still need to be somewhat knowledgeable about investing. M1 is strictly focused on building an excellent investing experience for traders so if you’re looking for something that’s a little more personalized and offers more investing advice and planning, then you’d probably be better off with a robo-advisor like Wealthfront, Wealthsimple, or Betterment, which I’ll review pretty soon. So here’s the deal. M1 is a great platform for anyone who’s looking to build their own stock or ETF portfolio. Although classified as a Robo-advisor, M1 doesn’t have any pre-assessments to determine your risk tolerance and they also don’t invest for you. So although you can choose from pre-made pies, M1 requires a more hands-on approach and is great for anyone who wants a more active role when it comes to investing. Once your portfolio is built, all you have to do it set recurring deposits and M1 will take care of the rest until you decide you want to change your portfolio. M1 will also automatically reinvest your dividends which will help your money compound in the long-run. This strategy is called dollar cost averaging which was used by renowned investors like Warren Buffett and Benjamin Graham. Dollar cost averaging takes your emotions out of the market. This makes M1 a great platform for any buy and hold investor. Also if you’re brand new to investing or you’re a day trader, M1 Finance may not be the best platform for you. As I mentioned in the cons, if you’re new to investing, you’re better off using a robo-advisor like Stash, Acorns, or others that offer already built portfolios. Take that time to learn about investing and once you feel comfortable building your own portfolio, then it may be time for you to move to M1. I hope you enjoy this video about the pros and cons of M1 Finance.
