Okay, for some reason I have been on a “fast-track” learning curve about finances lately. I have inundated myself with some very challenging stuff. I am reading an excellent book, “Cashflow Quadrant” by Robert Kiyosaki. It is actually a sequel to a book that I really should have read first, “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” by the same author. I highly recommend these reads for anyone looking to move out of the typical American financial “Ratrace”. At one time in my life, I felt that money was wicked and evil. What I found out, however, is that mismanagement and ignorance of money is evil and wicked. As Christians, we must be the most financially savvy and sound people on the face of the earth. That is called good stewardship.
I am facing an enormous financial crossroad in my life. I have an opportunity to move from self-employed, contractual work to capital investments that generate long term income. With this move comes risk, but I am seeking God’s wisdom along with sound advice from experienced investors in order to manage the risk. I pray for wisdom and ask that you too pray for me and my family during this transition.
