[00:01 – 11:22] Erik’s BIG Three

  • #1: Surround yourself with MENTORS, but not just ANY mentors…GREAT mentors.
    • What makes a great mentor relationship?
      • 3 Key Questions you MUST ask:
        • Do they know who I am? Am I willing to open up the deepest parts of my heart with these individuals? 
        • Do they have my best interests in mind?
        • Do they not benefit from me? Do they not need anything from me?
      • Other MUSTs:
        • You MUST have the humility to admit you don’t know everything
        • MUST ask yourself, “Have I given them enough authority in my life?”
  • #2:  Own the fact that you’re in control of your own decisions and spending patterns.
    • Your controllables are…
      • INCOME – invest in yourself
      • TAXES – plan your taxes because they’re the only thing about money that’s guaranteed
      • WIN the cash flow game
    • Wealth = well-being and contentment
    • Biggest mistake people make when it comes to their wealth: they don’t have an architect building a blueprint. You’re the owner. Who’s the architect?
  • #3: Common mistake even the wealthy make: lack of clarity of WHY MONEY matters
    • Get clarity on the next 90 days
    • Most important step: Identify why money matters and don’t forget it
