EP8 I don't want a job - Think like the rich - Get paid for performance and invest
This episode covers some ideas around the statement  I don't want a job I personally do not want a normal job. Do you? It it's perfectly fine if you do. The ideas shared works regardless if you are in a job or not.  Key ideas shared: There are 4 billon hits on Google for the statement I don't want a job - so there must be a demand for that kind of content. This episode is not above complaining but making a change and a difference.  Get paid for your results and performance instead of swapping time for money. The reason for this is almost all jobs in the world has a payment cap on how much you can make, and how much you can make in a given timeframe. Stop trading time for money!  Improve you likelihood and probability to earn money by position yourself right (not in the desert without communication as in the example). You increase your earning ability by increasing knowledge and reach.  This knowledge and reach might help you to be a so called influencer. As Grant Cardone said in a video I am not an influencer I am a Business Man. Call it what you want a person who can influence people.  Sales is het lifeblood of any business! Always Be Closing or ABC. Obviously not to the wrong people...  As so many says, often without explaining pay yourself first. Put money aside "save" or horde money and invest - repeat.  Keep track of your money. Have systems that allow for you to monitor income and expenses plus assets and liabilities. An example what I use Keep learning and evolving this also includes your team when applicable. Risk and rewards - don't lost money... Responsibility take responsibility and avoid the lame blame game.  Habits a great. Discipline and action helps along the way.  Feel free to revisit the book The Compound Effect by Darren Hardy for example on Amazon via the short link: Feel free to subscribe, rate or review.  Welcome back we are just getting started!  All the best Fredrik Sandvall Feel free to follow or connect on @fredrikinlondon

EP3 Red Team in Investing - How to get constrictive feedback on your investment and strategy
Fredrik Sandvall explains - Red Team in investing, a tactic he can highly recommend when the timing is there. In simplicity with its origin in war games in the military the Red Team is the other party playing the role of critiquing, challenging ideas and probing to ensure this is the best idea, plan or investment about to happen. The Red Team experience can be and is hopefully challenging enough to see things in a new light, from a different perspective often from the other side's. It helps to frame the problem and gives further information that can be considered when taking the investment decision. Role play and rehearsing are variations of the same forcing the decision maker to react to for example a changing view of the investment. Captain Fredrik Sandvall has served 16 years in the armed forces in a broad range of countries and senior roles. He has also used this strategy in the City of London with Clients. His thought can guide you and are not financial advice - he recommends always do your own due diligence and search relevant specialist advise.
