STEP 1 – Learn How Money Works And Build Passive Income Streams Playing The Cashflow Game

Dear reader,
Congratulations for taking the very first step for yourself to become FINANCIALLY FREE by getting out of RAT RACE.
FINANCIALLY FREE – means you have enough assets that generate passive income streams that pays all the expenses on monthly basis. Also, those passive income streams doesn’t require you to work 9-5 job.
RAT RACE – means you have to work 9-5 job which means you exchange time for money in order to have an income stream to pay your expenses.
The figure below it’s an example of being on the “rat race trap” vs becoming “financially free”. A rat race means the rats in a maze competing against each other to be the first to get the cheese, which envisions harried and unhappy people working long hour for a little pay.
Now let’s see:

The Four Basic Financial Statements You Must Know

The four financial definitions are:
  • Income – which means the money you put on bring in. Income can be active and passive. Active income – it’s the money you make by exchanging time for money working 9-5 job or doing a freelance work. Passive Income – it’s the money you make without needing to work once you have done the right investments. You don’t need to exchange time for money.
  • Expenses – are the money you spent. Simply think of expenses like something that takes money out of your pocket.
  • Assets – which means something puts money in your pocket without working 9-5 job, which means you don’t exchange time for money. Rent an apartment, rent a car, write an ebook and publish it on amazon, advertise recurring products and you get monthly dividends on those products, create an online course and publish on udemy, real estate, stocks, bonds, etc.
  • Liabilities – it’s something that takes money out of your pocket on long term, like mortgage, consumer loans, credit cards, etc.
Those are the 4 basic definitions you need to know. It’s very important that you know what’s the difference between an asset and a liability. Remember this way – an asset is something that puts money in your pocket and a liability is something that takes money out of your pocket.

What Is The Secret That Rich Get Richer And Poor Get Poorer

The answer is very simple. The rich buy assets, poor and middle class acquire liabilities.
The poor class take their hard earned money and buy stuff, clothing, games. They pay taxes, rent etc. Below in the Fig. 1 you will see how their cash flow looks like.
The middle class spent their money on liabilities that they think they are assets. Mortgage, car loans, credit card dept, school loans. They don’t have any asset at all as an income to pay for their expenses. See the Fig. 2 how their cash-flow works.
The wealthy class spent their money on buying assets. And assets pay for all of their expenses and left-over money, they invest again buying more assets which bring more money. See the Fig. 3 how their cash-flow works.

Fig.1 Cash flow of poor person. They have the salary as the primary income and they spend it right away through expenses.

Fig. 2 Cash flow of middle person. They have the salary as their primary income and they buy liabilities that take money out of their pocket

Fig. 3 Cash flow of wealthy people. They have their assets as their primary income. And those assets pay for their expenses.

The key to FINANCIAL FREEDOM is the ability to convert active income (salary) into passive income (rental income, dividends, interest, royalties, online recurring products…)
Now, you may ask why do poor and middle class struggle? It’s because they don’t buy assets. All they have is the job, pay rent, taxes and other expenses. But the main problem is that they haven’t been told. No school teaches you how to save and multiply the money and become financially free. All they have been taught is go to school, get a job, buy home, buy car and that’s it. This way they fell on  the trap of rat race being in big dept.
The same happen to me, finished the college on computer science, got a job, and finally all  the money I was making from the salary I was spending to the rent, food, clothing, and buying other things, until i came to read the book of Robert Kiyosaki named “Rich Dad Poor Dad”.
You can find the book just by searching on google “rich dad poor dad free pdf download
The book has been a game changer for me. Taught me how the money works, how to spend the money, how to create passive income wisely. And best of it was it helped learn How Money Works Playing Cashflow Game
In this book you’ll learn how Income Statement and Balance Sheet interact to each other. It gives you lots of options to play and the key here is to grow and create your asset column to the point that exceeds your monthly expenses. Once you accomplish this you’re out of RAT RACE.
Now you may ask, why learning how money works through the game? Because the game teaches you what books can’t. For example, you can never learn how to drive a car only by reading a book. You got to practically get into the car with the instructor when you’re driving for the first and start practicing. That’s why the game is for. When you get good at the game they you’re ready to real passive income. Now let’s get into

How To Play The Cash-Flow Game

To play cashflow game go to www.richdad.com and create an account. Once you have created go to App & Games menu, then select Cashflow Classic sub menu as shown in the figure below:
And follow the steps to start playing the game.
Identify yourself with the name and password and click the number 1, so you will be playing only by yourself because it’s the beginning and you want to learn the basics. When you get good, then you can join other players around the World and play with them.
On the left side of the board game you have button named “Financial Statement”. Please click on that button.
Let’s asses the current game situation by reading the 4 statements as shown in the figure below:
INCOME – shows the money you get paid monthly as an policy officer of $3,000
EXPENSES – shows the money you spend during the month where you have to pay taxes ($580), home mortgage ($400), car loan payment ($100), credit card payment ($60), retail payment ($50), other expenses ($690). The total sum of expenses is $580+$400+$100+$60+$50+$690 = $1,880
ASSETS – you have no assets at all
LIABILITIES – where you home mortgage liability ($46,000), car loans liability ($5,000), credit cards liability ($2,000), retail dept liability ($1,000).
Finally the cash you have currently is $520 and the payday is $1,120 when you subtract the expenses from income. The goal is to create passive income streams that pays for expenses and have enough left-over money to buy more assets that pays more money.
I played the game myself which you will see in the video below and as a final result I created a total passive income of $3860, and my payday or monthly money I get is $5,430 as shown in this figure.
And below is the video how I played the game. I didn’t speak as I was making the video but as you go through  the game by yourself, you will understand the process.
In the beginning you might find struggling yourself how to play the game. But read the task carefully and start playing the game. Don’t be disappointed if you lose, because that means you are learning how to win the money game.
In our real scenario we’re not going to invest money on stocks and bonds, but we are going to use online opportunities where you can make money online through recurring digital products which are going to be your primary income that pays for your expenses and with left over money, you can invest again for new online assets that pays even more money. Below is a figure of one of my accounts that have where I get paid once a threshold is $100. I get paid almost every month around $115.
Now imagine yourself, having 15 accounts that pays you $100 minimum and that is $1500. I believe that would be very helpful for your finances. At the step 3 I’ll list all the digital products that pay recurring revenue that you can promote. Also at step 3 you will learn also how to promote products even if you have no marketing and computer skills at all.
If you read this far, congratulations, you have learned a lot and you’re ahead of many people who have no clue how money works and how to get out of rat race.
