Financial Independence

The New Awakening!

The New Awakening! – by Etieno Etuk, MBA(Finance)

Rude Awakening

According to recent surveys, North Americans are facing serious financial challenges. That is why this year’s electoral process is of grave concern to millions of US citizens at home and abroad. This concern is valid because if the right people are not voted into office, there could be a catastrophic shift in the gap between the rich and the poor. In Canada, about 35% of Canadians do not have any savings or investments. Roughly 27 percent of private sector workers have any employer-funded pension plan. The average savings in Registered (continue reading…)

Ten Things I Learned From Harry N. Stout This Weekend

Ten Things I Learned From Harry N. Stout This Weekend

I’m so excited to share with you some success principles that will skyrocket your business profits. The whole of yesterday, I spent with some amazing people.  It was a couple of hours of training by some of the most brilliant minds in the world of Financial Services/Life Insurance. I was thrilled by the value that was put forth that the presenters at this event. I took copious notes and wish to share them with you my viewers. And why would I choose to do this? Because I care about your success and I’m quite excited about what this information can do for you and your business if you study it and apply it to your business or life.

The event I attended was put together by mentors, Alex Ruiz & Kameron Kimmel-Ruiz. Just a little bit about this wonderful couple. Kameron Kimmel is a native Texan who grew up always searching for more and asking a lot of questions. When she was in college, she was extremely bored and looking to know how to own a business where she could help many people across the world. She happened to fall into the Financial Industry when she was still in college, a little over 9 years ago and never left. She has had incredible mentors along the way which led her to build her (continue reading…)


My Bible Was Signed By Malcolm X!









I came across a video and also read an article in Forbes Magazine entitled “Moses Signed My Bible” by Tom Post. These two inspired me to write this quick post on my blog. In the article, Tom Post said that autographed first editions are a cool way to collect rare books and that forgers think so too.

This means that original autographed first editions are more valuable many years after they were first autographed. Sometimes they sell for thousands of dollars many years after they were autographed.

I quote him here: “Several years ago, in a fit of Bibliophilia that still afflicts me, I started buying earlier versions of some favorite titles. While trawling on Ebay, I caught sight of what purported…to be a signed first edition of Robert Penn…”

The video I share below is an original video and evidently is worth much more now than it was when it was first recorded. It is quite controversial. I noticed that the video had a lot of comments on Youtube so I decided to post it on here.

Don’t let anyone kill your dreams, no matter who that person is. Keep dreaming and one day it will become reality!

Let me know what you think about the video and this post in the comments section below.

4 Keys To Becoming Financially Free

4 Keys To Becoming Financially Free








If you pay attention to the information I’m getting ready to share with you right now, you’ll end up being a wealthier person down the road.

My goal is to see you totally financially independent. Does that make sense? I hope it does.

One of the concepts you’ve got to develop is the concept of ‘Pay Yourself First’. Here’s what I’m talking about. There’s a book called ‘The Richest Man in Babylon‘. Now, I don’t have time to tell you the whole story behind the book.

One of the basic concepts discussed in this book is that of paying yourself first. If you don’t do anything else, go get the book. It’s probably $5 or so at the book store. Read chapter number two as soon as you get the book. This is a must do.

The book is written in the form of a parable. It’s an easy read and a fun read but the message behind it is powerful.

Another key to winning the money game and also the life game is living below your means. If you’re making $2000 a month, figure out how to live on $1800 a month.

You say ‘Etieno, I have too many bills’. Trim them back. Cut out the cable if you have to…cut something out. You’ve got to have a plan…not a budget. Don’t blow all your money because once you’ve spent a dollar on something, it’s gone forever.

Let money be your slave but don’t be a slave to money.

Defense wins championship.

From a business perspective, the money you save is your defense. There will be bumps in the road. It doesn’t matter where they come from. Your savings will be your defense from these (continue reading…)
