I think Rich Dad Poor Dad explained it best. The best way to create wealth is by creating businesses. It is hard to create wealth as an employee. Everyone wants to be an investor but it takes several 100K to be a real investor. (My paraphrase). Stacking is a hobby just like collecting anything else. If you are truly investing you need several 100K to make an impact. Example; WC says he gets 2% a month investing. If he has 10K “invested” he will have just under 33K in 5 years if he is “reinvesting” or he takes home $200 a month. Nothing here to change his life. Same holds true if he has 100K. However, if he has 300K now he is at almost a million in 5 years reinvesting or he takes home 6K a month. The problem is most people try to be an investor without the proper capital. That was my mistake about 5 years ago. I instead shifted gears 3 years ago into creating businesses. I have covered more wealth ground in 3 years than I had the previous 10 years working.
