[10:11] Breaking the Myth About Self-Made Millionaires and the Power of Learning
A study by Fidelity Investments revealed that 88% of millionaires are self-made, challenging the belief that wealth is only inherited or reserved for the privileged few. Continuous learning is key to achieving financial success. Whether through education, career advancement, or entrepreneurship, lifelong learners have actively sought knowledge and expanded their skill sets to accumulate wealth.
[13:05] The Impact of Economic Issues and Inflation on Asset Values
Money in the bank loses value to inflation. Real estate and other cash-flowing assets are valuable during economic issues or inflation, as they hedge against inflation, appreciate, and generate passive income. Investors must consider these factors to avoid losses. Investing in real estate or tangible assets protects investments from economic trends, providing stability and steady rental income. It’s an attractive option for investors seeking financial security.
[23:21] Different Types of Alternative Investments
- Real Estate – Bronson got his start in single-family homes before moving to multifamily apartments and syndication. Real estate can include commercial properties like storage units as well.
- ATMs – Bronson is invested in ATM machines through a fund, which provide very consistent monthly cash flow from transaction fees.
- Car Washes – This is a newer asset class that Bronson discussed, as large operators are consolidating the fragmented industry. Car washes have potential for cash flow and appreciation.
- Oil and Gas – While at higher risk, certain oil and gas deals like non-operated working interests can generate income through royalty payments and appreciation if operated efficiently.
- Precious Metals – Bronson stores physical gold and silver and can borrow against the value for liquidity needs at lower interest rates than typical loans.
- Private Lending – Providing loans to real estate developers and businesses can generate returns, though due diligence on borrowers is crucial.
