Entrepreneurism is the basis for the United States economy. Let’s not lose it. Stay tuned.
From Philadelphia, the home of the Liberty Bell, Financial Freedom Radio starts now. Here’s your host, Raymond Jewell.
Welcome everybody to FinancialFreedomRadio.com. I want to thank you all for coming and downloading or however you get to watch us. We build our show based on referrals. So the best way we found for people to learn about what we’re doing is having you send them to us. So please, send them to FinancialFreedomRadio.com. They can click on the link, sign up, and they can get on the distribution list for our shows. We may shoot them early every week at 2:00 on Friday. Everybody gets notified of the show. If you ring the bell on Financial Freedom Radio, go to YouTube.com/FinancialFreedomRadio, you will get notified maybe a little early. I don’t know. Let’s ask how producer, Steve. Hey Steve, how are you?
I’m doing good, Ray. Thanks. Yeah they may get a bit of an early notification every now and again when I make a mistake. We try to keep it honest.
Maybe if we give them a little preview sometimes. Is that possible? By ringing the bell. We’ll talk about that.
We could certainly inspire people to ring the bell. Let me come up with some ideas without making my job too difficult.
Okay. So you’re gonna like this show. We’re gonna talk about entrepreneurism. We were talking earlier. Don’t go away, Steve. Stay right there. We were talking earlier and Steve said to me you have to give people information for them not what’s in your head, but what’s in your head. Well I don’t know what’s in there. Am I getting that right?
What I’ve been trying to say is the show is Financial Freedom Radio. People tuned in because they’re looking for Financial Freedom. So the information you share with them needs to help them move forward in that pursuit that they’re in.
Okay I understand. So what I’m giving you is information that I have that you take and use it the best way you know how. I’m sharing what I know because I’ve made this journey. I’ve gone through 40 years of building a retirement successfully. I’m doing these shows in retirement. So I’m sharing with you what I know. Hopefully it’ll help you. You may not need all of it. You may just need some of it, but you will filter through in your mind what you need. So I want to read this to you because this is a very interesting little blurb that I found in a book. I’ll tell you where it comes from after I read it. Don’t go away, Steve.
I’m staying here.
So the road to travel is what it says. For the most part, our society has done more good for other people than any other society in history. Many of us do not realize how fortunate we are. We sometimes take for granted that which we have the right to do with our lives as we see fit. We sometimes take that for granted. The right to do with our lives as we see fit. If we can get an education and then work hard, our capitalistic system will reward us. Given all the opportunity, it is up to each individual to protect his or her freedom, health, and financial well-being. We have many tools and information at our fingertips to perform this, to perform well and achieve financial independence. However, we need to be careful of all the misinformation and inferior financial products in the marketplace. How difficult is it to grow and protect our wealth in the 21st century? That’s the question. For those who do not yet have wealth, the road to wealth is clear although not always easy to navigate. For those who have wealth, there is a constant need to manage, care for it, and protect it. So when we go back, we have many tools and information at our fingertips to perform well and achieve financial independence. However, we need to be careful of all the misinformation and fear of financial products in the marketplace.
This came out of the book that was written by Bob Castalougne many years ago, I think early 2000. He’s the creator of the leap system. He wrote this to many years ago and that’s why I do these shows. To give you financial education, to give you information that you may need going forward to go through and to grow and protect your wealth in the 21st century. So when we talk about all this, what I’m doing is giving you information and then you can actually utilize it. You can put it together. If you don’t know how to put it together, you can let us know. We have a little crawler I think at the bottom or a little thing, but go to RaymondJewell.com/meet and schedule a half-hour meeting with me and I’ll go over it with you. We’ll just talk about how you can put this together for yourself as long as time permits. So, that’s the reason I give this information. Steve, it’s important that the information flow be there, not all of it’s helpful and not all of it’s going to light your pants on fire and go whoa now I get it. The lightbulb goes off in my head. Now I get it. Not all of it’s going to do that. Some of it will. It will all come together with all these shows and you’ll be able to put it together and realize that this is something you want to take a look at.
So what we’re going to talk about today is entrepreneurism. The United States was built on entrepreneurism. This goes back to the creation of the country. When you look at the history of the United States, entrepreneurism was alive and well. You had programs called apprenticeship. There were different levels of apprenticeship. You had an early apprentice, journeyman, and different names. The end result was you could continue to work with the person, but the person that you were doing the apprenticeship under was not the one you were going to work with for the rest of your life. You were going to go out and create your own business. He was teaching you how to do it, to go a couple towns over or the next town over and do it for yourself. Blacksmith, running a shop, whatever it was. These were entrepreneurs that were starting out that were learning how to build a business. They learned to trade. Once they figured that trade out, they went out on their own. Many built wealth creating new innovations back then. The Vanderbilts built a huge shipping industry then they moved into the railroads. Back before the Civil War, you had the cotton gin. That was a huge innovation on how to separate the seeds from the cotton. Now instead of hand separating it and lots of innovations like that.
Then you had the Civil War come and the Civil War actually had more entrepreneurs crop up after the Civil War than any period of time in our country. You can just see where steel and all sorts of oil and all sorts of different entrepreneurial endeavors grew this country to where it is today. These people would go out and discover, like Rockefeller and Royal, Carnegie and steel, Morgan with finance. He would finance a lot of this stuff. This became a snowball that started to roll. It got bigger and bigger and bigger. If you see our country, we took off like a rocket right after the Civil war because people were ready, the economy was ready to grow. It was ready to take it off and it happened. One of the things though that really frustrates me when you look and entrepreneurism is many people try to suppress it. We see lately people are trying to suppress our spirit, our entrepreneurial spirit, our individualistic spirt. It bothered me when I’ve seen these rioters currently and these liberal people that want to take us into a society or into a type of government that we’d never had before, that we never thrived in before. The entrepreneur economy is what we’re used to, but they want to take us into a socialistic type economy. We’re pretty close to being in one, but not there yet because we have better methods and better chances of thriving as an entrepreneur in our current economy and in our current society than anywhere else in the world without a lot of regulations which our current president took off.
They want to keep heaping regulations on us. They want to try to suppress the entrepreneurial spirit. For some reason, they don’t realize that the entrepreneurial spirit is what drives this economy, not these big businesses. Even though they are a major contributor, it’s the little small business, it’s mom-and-pop that’s putting people to work that allows people to earn an income and spend that money and create velocities on the dollar. This is very elementary, but when I see what’s going on, I see a liberal mindset, even the Democratic mindset, is trying to stifle our entrepreneurial spirit by regulating us, by telling us what we can do and what we can’t do, by controlling us. Even financial institutions we see try to do that. We go to a financial planner., you’ve heard me talk about this over and over again, and the reason I do is because I’ve got an axe to grind with this. It bothers me. They’re not taught how to help us grow a business. They’re taught how to get our money and they teach us what they’re taught. They’ve got all sorts of fancy ways to do it that are non-logical. You will know if you listen to these shows, where to look out for it and where to see it and where not. What’s the term, Steve that’s being bantered around now? Woke? Is that it?
Yeah, people are woke.
What that really means is you’re now seeing things that you never saw before. Well, when you look at something and you see people burning down a statue or burning up a business or looting a business, you’re seeing people suppress the entrepreneurial spirit. You’re seeing people tell you what you should say and do, what you have the right to see whether you like a statue or not. People are telling you. So actually, they’re waking up people as to what they don’t want to have happen. We don’t want to be told. They’re trying to defund police. We don’t want to be losing something that we pay taxes for. We pay taxes to be protected. So if you take it away, that’s what we’re paying for. Our business pays taxes for benefits that this country gives us. When somebody decides that they want to take it away from us, what they’re doing is telling us what we can have and what we can’t for our tax dollar. That’s not the basis of this country. So what you’re seeing now are people that are dictating to you what you can have and what you can’t. When you go to the financial institutions, they tell you what interest rate you can have and what you can’t have. They tell you if you put your money at risk, you’re going to have more. The financial people convince you that what they’re doing is right, even though it’s wrong. They spend a lot of money advertising. If what they were doing is right, why would they need to advertise it? They would have people circling the block to get to work with these people. If all of this was logical and was right.
So when we look at what’s being taught to us, going back to our entrepreneurial spirit, we’re being taught to lose that. It’s being educated slowly out of us. Fortunately, it hasn’t happened because people still believe that the way to financial freedom is through creating a small business or working for an employer and working your guts out for that person to get ahead and trusting that person that they will help you along the way. Part of that has been in a kick to the wayside. But there are still companies out there that believe that care about the employees. So the entrepreneurial spirit is still there. We haven’t lost it yet. Don’t let it happen. Your business when you deal with your finances, you want to deal with it as a business. Our models actually do that. A business tries to be as efficient as possible, tries to run and utilize every dollar in that business to make that business grow and to return more dollars. That’s what we are teaching in our model. We want to make that dollar grow that we work so hard for and return it to us with more dollars and not lost it. We want to make sure we keep that dollar circulating in our sphere of influence. Having trouble, Steve getting the words out.
Well, you get that way when you get passionate.
In our sphere of influence, we want to make sure that we keep that same dollar growing and growing and growing. The only way you can do that is when you’ve got a game board when you’ve got a rulebook, and you’ve got a macro-manager as in our leap system.
We just came off of a holiday. It was a great holiday for me because I saw a lot of patriotism. I saw a lot of people just wondering what’s going on in the future and getting confused with all of this defund the police and all of this burning up businesses and looting statues and all that. That’s not us. Don’t let this happen to you. Don’t let this happen. There’s a way to keep it from happening and it’s key to keep people away from control of the government. They don’t have your best interest at heart. They only have theirs. How many times have we seen a politician go to Washington say they’re going to help you and they don’t? Unfortunately, one party is very guilty of that. They’ve been plugging up the system for at least two years, maybe four. We’re not able to get things done as a society, to get things done for America. So I appeal to you, don’t let the entrepreneurial spirit go away. Make sure that we still continue to thrive, to be able to take that same dollar and to grow it into more dollars for ourselves. Even though you may not run your own business, there’s a way to do it and our system actually shows that to you.
We can’t actually walk through the system on these shows because you need a case to put it in. I could make up a case study and we can actually go through it online. We can figure out how to do it and we will put that on our agenda for down the road so you can see it in motion. In the meantime, I’ve got to give you this information. You do with it what you wish, but you don’t have to lose to the financial institutions and the financial planners who only tell you what they’re taught. If their system works so well, why are so many people out living their wealth? Why are so many people having to work in retirement? Why are so many people losing? You don’t have to do that. There is hope and let me tell you the hope is through this process unless you could figure out a better one, we’ve got an answer for you and just keep listening to these shows because it’s the education curve we need to get through so that you will actually see it.
When you see somebody present something to you, you’ll know. I have clients that say I saw this ad the other day and I thought how ridiculous this ad is, financial ed. My clients see it. So we will get you to that point. That’s actually a good term because it’s backfired on the liberal democrats or the liberals and the democrats. It’s backfired on them because what it’s done is woke up people that enjoy living in this country and enjoy making their own decisions and enjoy keeping government out of their life and enjoy lower taxes and enjoy the ability of protection and not have to worry about some gang coming in and stabbing people and breaking into their houses and all that craziness that’s going on.
Just stay tuned, folks. It’ll get better. If you’ve gotten information out of this, then that’s good. As you get that information and we start building on that information, you will get more information and it’ll start having that. You’ll reach what is called the Aha moment.
