5 Reasons Why Investing in Bitcoin is Better Than Buying Stocks

Ever since I created Masculine Development, I’ve been a huge advocate of investing in the stock market…and it isn’t hard to see why.

When a kid like me could triple his money in just a few months, meanwhile professional Wall Street brokers were taking home measly gains of 5-8% per year, it’s hard to not be a proponent of investing in the stock market.

Over the past several years, however, there’s been a new and revolutionary type of market that’s emerged, known as “cryptocurrencies.” This encompasses things such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin—all digital currencies.

…and I’m not bragging when I say that my profits from trading cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin have absolutely dwarfed the profits I made from buying stocks. Now, rather than tripling my money in a few months, I can do it in a few weeks. Here’s why.

Top 5 Books for Financial Prosperity (Ignore At Your Own Risk)

I’ve put off writing this article for a while, because the best books for creating wealth will depend on where you’re at in your journey.

For example, if you’re already extremely knowledgeable about making money, I would probably recommend more area-specific books with very technical advice on generating wealth or creating a business.

But if you’re new to wealth generation, I’d probably recommend some more basic books that talk about the fundamentals of creating wealth. I’ve struggled to put together a list that will help both the novice and the expert at making money, and I think that everyone can gain something from this list.

So with this in mind, here’s my top five books on how to generate wealth and live a life of abundance:

How to Sell eBooks Online For Passive Income

Gentlemen, today we’re going to be talking about how to make passive income by selling eBooks online. I’ve done it, and I had to learn most of this stuff for myself, so I figure that if you have a decent brain between your ears, you’ll be able to do it too.

Writing an eBook will take a lot of time, and a lot of persistence.

You’ll have to perfect the craft of writing. You’ll have to find a graphic designer to create an eBook cover. You’ll have to figure out a way to market your book to a niche audience. But, with effort, these things can be done. And besides, you don’t want it to be easy—otherwise everyone would be making $100/day in passive income from eBooks.

How to Get Filthy Rich (The Principles of Wealth)

One of the most commonly asked questions I get is: “Jon—how do I get rich?” Well, to be honest, there’s no simple answer to that. There’s as many ways to get rich as there are to skin a cat, but in general, there’s a few rules every rich person follows.

I’ve been re-reading Rich Dad Poor Dad, which is one of the most widely popular books on personal finance ever written, for the very first time, and in this book, Robert Kiyosaki discusses 6 rules that you MUST follow if you want to get rich. Robert Kiyosaki, for those of you who don’t know, is a multi-millionaire real estate mogul…so I think he’s someone we should listen to.

According to him, getting rich really boils down to just 6 simple principles—if you integrate these rules into your life, and genuinely live by them, you will be wealthy beyond your wildest dreams.

How to Invest in Gold Stocks (268% Increase in 5 Months)

Hello, gentlemen. Today the topic of discussion will be money. Particularly, how to invest in the stock market.

On January 6th, 2016, I recommended that you buy ABX (a gold mining company’s stock). I believed that due to the declining American economy, and a number of other factors that I will discuss today, the stock was poised to shoot through the roof. Here is a screenshot of my tweet from January 6th, 2016:

how to find your purpose and passion

How to Find Your Masculine Purpose (Monetize Your Passion)

We live in a world where most men are completely devoid of any purpose. Most men stumble through life without ever really waking up—they’re in a haze, drifting from day to day, and they never realize their full potential.

Rather than learning to monetize your passion, you simply relinquish your masculine purpose and spend your life furthering your boss’s goals. I want to change this. We need more men to wake up from the matrix.

We need men to realize that they can change reality. We don’t have to accept the bullshit system that is thrust upon us, we have the power to create our own destinies, and I’m going to teach you how. Before I begin, however, I want to define just what a”masculine purpose,” really is.

A “masculine purpose,” is having a clear, distinct goal in life, that is reflective of what you’re passionate about, and taking action to turn this purpose into a reality.

How to Invest in Yourself The Right Way

“What’s the best investment out there?” asks the young kid with fire in his heart, trying to make it big in the world. Well, there’s a lot of talk about how investing in stocks at a young age is a good thing to do—and it is. But what’s actually more important, is to start investing in yourself from a young age.

Investing in yourself is without a doubt the best investment in existence. It will improve literally every aspect of your life, from your finances, to your sex life, to your happiness, to your body.

We can all start investing in ourselves, today, even if we have very little money. I often see people buying the latest pair of Nikes for $230, but when asked to shell out just $15 for a book that could completely change the way they view things, they say “Nah, man—I can’t afford it.”

Yes, you can afford it—it’s just a matter of spending your money wisely.

10 Creative Ways to Save Money

Generally speaking there are three ways to get rich: to generate new wealth, protect existing wealth, and minimize expenditures.

Generating new wealth comes down to developing assets, such as investing in the stock market, buying a franchise, working a job, or creating a method of passive income.

Protecting existing wealth comes down to setting up safety nets, such as automatic triggers to sell if a stock gets too low, investing in stable stocks such as Coca Cola, or having a stash or physical gold in the case of an economic collapse.

This article will focus on the third method, however. Here are some unconventional ways to save money (aka minimize expenditures):
