The Hidden Saboteur
If you want to know what's really holding you back from creating a bullet-proof investment portfolio that generates consistent profits it's this:
Muddled Investment Strategies Syndrome (MISS).
Muddled Investment Strategies Syndrome (MISS) is a common problem for busy professionals and business owners.
It means there's either no comprehensive strategy for building passive income in place, or that investment decisions are based on fear, greed or other emotions.
Here's what typically happens: At some point, you might realize you should do something about your investments.
Often, these thoughts occur on the weekends, since your weekdays are already incredibly busy.
So you dedicate a few hours of "research" on the weekend, and either jump into some investments right away, e.g. buying some crypto or ETFs or dividend stocks, etc.
Often, these investments are a poor choice since the decision was made in a rush.
Another possibility is that you realize you need more time to "do it right" and put the project on your already full to-do list - and with everything else going on in your life, it never gets done... until you find some time on a weekend in a few months and the vicious cycle continues.
This often leads to confusion and frustration, and an "investment strategy" that's all over the place and doesn't get you anywhere.
Worst case, it could leave you worse that you were before..
Think of it this way: Let's say you want to lose a few pounds, and you decide to do some research about the best way to do it on a weekend when you have some time.
You might read about Keto and intermittent fasting, and then also look into some exercises like HIIT exercises, yoga, resistance bands, "muscle confusion" and all the other methods out there.
After a few hours, you feel smarter but you haven't lost any weight yet.
So you decide to "start tomorrow", and "tomorrow” is a busy day - like every day.
Maybe you try to eat a little bit healthier and you might take the stairs instead of the elevator. But as your busy days go on, you don't really have time to "do all this", and you decide to really get serious about it next week, or next month.
But you never find the time to actually do it, and therefore, these few pounds that you wanted to shed, are still there.
Muddled Investment Strategies Syndrome (MISS)
Can Mess You Up Pretty Good
Muddled Investment Strategies Syndrome (MISS) can trigger more dire problems than simply being frustrated with the slow results of traditional methods of investing...
You could end-up dealing with dire consequences like being frustrated while trying to figure out how best to invest their hard-earned money or even losing your hard-earned money on bad investments.
Now I know this sounds really grim...
However there is a way to bypass all that heartache...
Keep reading to find out what it is...
Identifying The Early Signs Of
Muddled Investment Strategies Syndrome (MISS)
So what triggers Muddled Investment Strategies Syndrome (MISS)? Are there red flags you should pay attention to? And how can you spot it before it happens again?
For starters, you need to pay attention to "Impulsive Investing":
Taking action without proper research or understanding the risks involved in a particular investment can lead to investing in underperforming or way too risky assets that could cause a huge loss...
When this happens, Muddled Investment Strategies Syndrome (MISS) is often just around the corner.
The good news is there's a quick and simple solution for this:
Simply stop rushing into investments - whether it's stocks, options, crypto, real estate or even a business.
Instead, first identify how much money you really need in passive income to live comfortably.
Here's a personal example:
My house and my cars are paid off and I don't have any debts.
The car I drive the most is a Tesla, which doesn't require any gas or maintenance like oil changes, transmission fluid or anything like this.
I have set up a college fund for my kids.
Therefore, I can easily live on $10,000 per month - after taxes.
This means that I only need $120,000 per year, which allows me to live a very comfortable life including a lot of traveling in first class - which I REALLY like.
So I "just" need to make $120,000 after taxes in passive income, and for me, that's super easy!
So how much do you REALLY need? It might be much less than you think!.
Let's look at another trigger - avoiding to look at your retirement or savings account statements because it frustrates you that your accounts are not growing.
And don't worry...
I have the solution for this one as well...
...take an inventory of how many liquid assets you have right now.
This includes extra cash that might be sitting in your checking account, any money in savings accounts and - of course - the money that you have in various retirement accounts like a 401k or IRA.
Now do the following: Take the total amount and multiply it by 0.3.
That's what you can expect to make in your first year of actively managing your accounts!
I personally get around 60% per year, and after a while, it might be possible for you to achieve these results as well. Who knows? :-)
Oh, and don't worry about taxes or penalties just yet. We will address this later.
But how does this feel?
Are you getting more excited when you see how hard your money could work for you?.
As helpful as these tips may be, they are not the ultimate solution.
However, in order to convey the impact and power this can bring into your life, I first need to let you in on the backstory.
It's how I managed to discover the sure-fire way of removing Muddled Investment Strategies Syndrome (MISS) from your life once and for all...
...while building a profitable portfolio of investments that generate passive income.
How I Picked Up A Life Changing Tip Along The Way
One of the secrets to my success in wealth building is the leveraging the power of role models. I learned over the years to be very selective.
And even more important: I learned to spot consistent patterns.
It's great when something works for one person, or two. That may help you in the short term.
However, I decided to "pattern spy".
I wanted to see if the ultra-successful had traits in common.
That way I could discount factors like experience, luck, and natural gifts.
One of the people that inspired me was Warren Buffet.
Warren Buffet grew up in Omaha, Nebraska and he followed the "traditional" career path like I did: get good grades in school, go to college, and then make a career.
After college, Warren Buffet worked as an investment salesman but it wasn't long before he realized that “if you are not rich then you are making someone else rich”.
So he decided it was time to take matters into his own hands..
At just 31 years old, he bought shares of Sanborn stock, and within 2 years he made a 50% return on his investment.
Although 25% per year may not seem like much in today's world when everybody talks about making 286% in 5 days, it was only the beginning of his remarkable path to "the world's most famous investor":
By the age of 32, Warren Buffet became a millionaire. And when he turned 60, he became a billionaire.
For many years, Warren Buffet was the richest man in the world.
And today, at 92 years old, Warren Buffet is still ranked among the top 10 richest people alive.
He is a living testimony how focusing on "SRC profits" can make you very wealthy!
Here's How You Can Replicate This Success For Yourself
You hear stories like that of Warren Buffet and you may be tempted to think to yourself, "Yeah, but folks like that usually are a genius or very wealthy."
Is that true? Not at all.
I believe anyone can build a successful portfolio of investments with the right strategies and knowledge. I’m not saying that it’s easy…
… but it can be simple.
Many of our "100k Club" Members who have made $100,000 or more with the strategies you’re about to discover are school teachers, nurses, restaurant owners, ... and there are countless examples of “regular folks” who have achieved success.
What you really need is the right strategies, tools and dedication.
And have you ever said this to yourself?
"Sure, inspiring, but I'd have to take a lot of risks and spending a lot of time researching to pull it off."
You know, I used to think the same thing.
Here's the truth: you actually don't need to take excessive risks or spend too much time researching in order to build wealth. With the right strategies, you can manage risks effectively while still making steady and reliable returns.
And I personally spend less than 30 minutes per day on monitoring my trades, and sometimes, I don't check the markets at all, especially when I'm traveling with my kids.
Another myth is that successful people seem to are all 'lucky' and were just at the right time at the right place to make their fortune, and that these opportunities are now gone. It sounds reasonable, but it's simply a myth...
The truth is that there has never been a better time to start trading and investing.
These days, we have powerful tools at our disposal that help us to make expert decisions with minimal effort.
And commissions have never been cheaper: In fact, I'm paying no commissions at all, and I'll be happy to introduce you to my broker.
Anyhow, as you can see, all these false "success myths" are dead wrong....
...and they are made up to hold you back from a proven solution that actually works:
A Long And Frustrating Journey Filled With Errors
Led Me To Discover What Actually Works
What do the most successful have in common?
I analyzed my own trading and investment success as well as hundreds of successful traders and investors like Warren Buffet, George Soros, Ray Dalio and even our "100k Club" Mastermind Members.
All of them are true winners...and I found they have this in common:
==> They all focus on CONSISTENCY.
They don't jump onto "shiny objects". They don't put all of their money into Bitcoin or meme stocks like Gamestop, AMC Theaters or the latest "hot tip" in an online forum.
Yes, maybe they miss out on the latest Bitcoin move when it's going from $5,000 to $68,000. But they are not worried about missing ONE trade - they are focusing on the "big picture" and strive to make consistent profits REPEATABLY.
They understand that it’s more important to make small but consistent profits instead of having a "lucky windfall trade" every now and then.
And they also understand that the quickest way to lose all of your money is trying to double it, so instead, they focus on taking low risk trades.
"Focusing on consistency" is the common trait among all of the highly successful traders and investors out there.
Back when I first started out...
...I thought I knew what's important when it came to wealth building.
However, I quickly realized these guys were on a completely different level...
...and if I want to be successful I should model what they're doing.
And my entire outlook on wealth building changed once I had found it.
I was left with one powerful truth as a result of this experience:
Your Success Relies on "SRC Profits"
When I finally shared the concept of SRC Profits with a small group of my customers the consensus was, "That's the answer. When we started using this approach, we were finally able to create a bullet-proof investment portfolio that generates consistent profits."
Now, what's it all about?
That's the ability to create systematic, repeatable and consistent profits, no matter what the markets or the economy does.
Let me unpack that a bit further for you.
I'm sure you have heard the story of the tortoise and the hare, have you?
But that's just a story, isn't it?
Well, here's a video of a race between a tortoise and a hare in real life:
Think about the hare as a trader who jumps on the latest shiny object like Bitcoin, Meme Stocks, "the next Tesla", the "Tesla of China" etc.
As you can see, there might be some success with this for a few days or maybe even weeks... but if you want to be successful in the long run without taking unnecessary risks, then "slow and steady" wins the race.
Remember Bitcoin and how it went crazy in 2021?
In January 2021, Bitcoin was trading at $28,000.
In November 2021, it reached an all-time high of 69,000.That's a 246% gain.
Now you might say "I'm not trading Bitcoin. I like stocks like Tesla" - which is one of the most popular stocks to trade.
So let's take a look at Tesla:
In January 2021, Tesla was trading at $240.
By November 2021, Tesla hit $414.That's 172% gain - before crashing down to $102.
But do you see the orange line on these 2 charts?
Yes, Bitcoin was flying high in 2021 and then crashing in 2022:In the beginning of 2023, Bitcoin was 8.68% lower than in the beginning of 2021.
Same for Tesla: Flying high in 2021 and crashing in 2022.
Compared to the beginning of 2021, Tesla was down more than 40% in the beginning of 2023.
But the orange line - the “tortoise” - was up 38% in the same timeframe.
So what IS this orange line? Who is the tortoise that wins the race?
Well, the orange line is the price of Berkshire Hathaway - Warren Buffet's company.
And no: I'm not cherry picking the last 2 years.
Take a look at the chart below where you will see the S&P 500 and the price of Warren Buffet's company.
As you can see, Warren Buffet has outperformed the S&P 500...
... not by a factor 2x... not by 3x... not by 4x... by a whopping 576%!
So how exactly does he do it?
First of all, Warren Buffet is the Grandmaster of "SRC Profits".
And secondly, he's using a very specific trading strategy that I'm using as well.
Some Quick Tips to Help You Get Started With SRC Profits
After discovering SRC Profits...
I developed a few easy-to-apply tips to get traders and investors like you started on the path to wealth building success.
Here's my first tip: Focus on "Value Stocks".
Yes, I know: That sounds super boring. After all, don't we all want to find the "next big stock" - the new disruptive technology - that will give you 10x or maybe even 100x on your return?
It sounds great but it's like finding a 4-leaf clover: It exists, and if you spend enough time, you might find one. Or you might pick one and realize that it's not that special after all.
Trust me, I have tried that, and I have lost a lot of money in the process.
Because chasing unicorns like this is the exact opposite of SRC Profits.
These days, I'm looking for stocks and ETFs that pay a dividend and have a low "P/E Ratio" of less than 50, preferably less than 20.
But that's only the first part of it. Keep reading, and I'll show you how to combine this with an extremely powerful strategy that Warren Buffet likes to use.
So here's the second tip: Sell Put Options.
You might be wondering "What the heck is this and why should I bother? This sounds complicated!"
First of all, it's easier that you think.
And here's why you should do it:On January 30, 2023, MoneyWise published an article
"If you want to be really rich, use these 3 Warren Buffett investing techniques that no one talks about"
In this article, the author states the #1 Strategy is "Selling Put Options"
I don't want to get into the nitty-gritty of this strategy right now...
…but trust me on this one:
Selling put options is the most consistent way to make money with trading that I found.
It's the perfect strategy for making "SRC Profits".
And the best: It only takes a few minutes to execute, so it's perfect for you if you're busy!
If this all sounds intriguing, then keep reading…
