City of Blinding Lights (Part 1)

First let me explain the choice of title:

  1. Yes, it is U2 song. I started listening to it just as I was putting this article to paper. It is so apt, at least the title.
    Reason 2 explains how and why.
  2. Often the city lights blind us from seeing the right way. But sometimes they illuminate the path, this showing us the journey we should be taking.
    This article is one of those times.

Most people spend their entire lives attempting to use ALL their earnings to:

  1. Pay out the capital on a mortgage;
  2. Retain and remove the credit card limit;

  1. More Wealth from Residential Property. ISBN 0958567255
  2. The Millionaire Mind by T.J. Stanley
  3. Rich Dad, Poor Dad – What the Rich Teach Their Kids about Money – That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not! by R.T. Kiyosaki

Wait! Before you go running off to read them, let me explain how amazing the results will be if you employ these techniques to build your wealth portfolio.
