l've got good news und bud news. llrst the good news: lf you're
llke the uveruge North Amerlcun, eurnlng ut leust sz,ccc u yeur, then ln
your llfetlme more thun s mllllon wlll flow through your flngers. 1hut's u
lot of money. ln other words, you're ulreudy on truck to becomlng u
llfetlme mllllonulre.

Now for the bud news: lf you're llke most eole, you'll send lt ull
und, ufter u llfetlme of eurnlng, wlll end u wlth ulmost nothlng. Eow ls
thut osslble?

lrunkly, becuuse nobody teuches us ubout money. ve recelve no
formul educutlon ln the most crltlcul of ull llfe skllls: how to become
flnunclully successful. Lld you ever, ln ull your yeurs of ubllc educutlon,
uttend u cluss culled "Money c?' vhy lsn't such u cluss mundutory ln
every elementury school?

Eow dld you leurn whut you know ubout money? Most llkely, you
lcked lt u, u lece here, u tl there. You ubsorbed uttltudes from your
urents und from the medlu. You ubsorbed the exumles of frlends. You
roceeded through trlul und errorthe school of hurd knocks. vhut you
leurned wus huhuzurd, mostly wrong, und certulnly out of context. lf
you reud books on the subject, robubly they overwhelmed you wlth
detulls or bored you wlth useless fucts. 1he result ls thut, lf you're llke
most, you're confused und frustruted und wonderlng whut to do, where
to turn next. vell, l huve more good news: 1he unswers ure ln thls book.

Money ls one of the most lmortunt subjects to study ln your
entlre llfe. Some of llfe's greutest enjoyments und most of llfe's greutest
dlsuolntments stem from the declslons you muke ubout money.
vhether you exerlence greut euce of mlnd or constunt unxlety wlll
deend on whether you get your flnunces under control. Your
relutlonshls, wlll be greutly uffected, too. ln fuct, most dlvorces ln our
soclety result from dlsugreements ubout money. 1hus, understundlng
money - how to muke lt und kee lt -ls ubsolutely essentlul to your llfe,
to your relutlonshls, to your hulness, to your future.

cc tlmes smurter? Cf course not. 1hey just know how to luy the gume.
You see, money ls u gume, ulbelt u very lmortunt one. lf you know the

1he concet of Multlle Streums of lncome ls the result of huvlng

1he goul ls for you to udd ut leust one new streum of lncome to your llfe

1he flrst questlon eole usuully usk ut thls olnt ls, "vhy multlle

of lncome dld lt tuke ln the c's for most fumllles to survlve - even
roser? Cne. Comure thut to toduy, when very few fumllles cun survlve
on fewer thun two streums of lncome. And even those won't be enough
ln the future. lt's u volutlle future, und you'd be wlse to huve multlle
streums of lncome flowlng lnto your llfe.

Proserous eole huve ulwuys known thls. lf one streum drles u,
they huve muny more to tu lnto for suort. Soculled ordlnury eole
ure much more vulneruble. lf they lose one of thelr streums, lt wles
them out. And lt tukes them yeurs to recover. ln the future you wlll need
u ortfollo of lncome streums - not one or two, but muny streums from
comletely dlfferent und dlverslfled sources - so thut lf one streum
emtles, you'll burely notlce. You'll be stuble. You wlll huve tlme to

Eowever, unyone cun know enough to tuke uctlon, becuuse uny

few fuctors ln reul estute lnvestlng? 1here ure three:


lf you wunt to be successful ln reul estute lnvestlng, you need to know
how to flnd burguln roertles, how to fund those roertles, und then
how to furm them -or to hurvest the roflts from euch deul. ln you own

frunkly, thut's the world of reul estute lnvestlng ln u nutshell. llnd lt. lund
