You Will Never Be Poor Again

When I show people Robert Kiyosaki video “You will never be poor again”, an interview with LONDON REAL’s Founder Brian Rose, they feel the conspiracy is real. It is not an accident that schools do not teach our children about money or that we weren’t taught about money any where in the world.

As Robert Kiyosaki explains, the Rich and Bankers play by a different set of rules. The Rich don’t work for money because the number one cost as an employee is taxes. The financial industry is two things, debt and taxes. In 1971, President Nixon took the US dollar off the last tie to the international Gold Standard and the Dollar became debt.

Affiliate Disclosure

In 2015, the Federal Trade Commission released their new rules for Disclosure Compliance. These rules are set in place to ensure that readers or viewers of web media (blogs, YouTube videos, etc.) know if the blogger/presenter is sponsored, endorsed, or partnered with a different company. In blog terms, the readers need to know if the blogger is making money by sharing a link or product.

In compliance with the FTC guidelines, please assume the following about links and posts on this site: Any/all the links are affiliate links of which I receive a small compensation from sales of certain items.

What are affiliate links?

Purchases are made on external affiliate company websites: When a reader clicks on an affiliate link located on to purchase an item, the reader buys the item from the seller directly (not from Amazon and/or other companies pay a small commission or other compensation for promoting their website or products through their affiliate program.

Prices are exactly the same for you if your purchase is through an affiliate link or a non-affiliate link. You will not pay more by clicking through to the link.

I use two main types of affiliate programs:

1. Amazon affiliate type links. is a participant in programs like the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon properties including, but not limited to, Amazon offers a small commission on products sold through their affiliate links.

If a blogger links to an Amazon product (with a special code for affiliates embedded in the link), and a reader places an item in their “shopping cart” through that link within 24 hours of clicking the link, the blogger gets a small percentage of the sale. Amazon links are not “pay per click.” If you click on the product link and stay around Amazon and purchase something else, however, I will get commission on that sale.

Anytime you see a link that looks like… or… it can be assumed that it is an Amazon affiliate link.

2. Product affiliate links.

These affiliate links work the same way: if you click the link and buy the product, then the blogger gets a percentage of the sale or some other type of compensation. Things like e-book bundles, e-courses, and online packages are usually affiliated links, as well. Again, prices are not different if you use these affiliate links. You will not pay more by clicking through to the link. These links are not “pay per click”, unless otherwise denoted.

What about sponsored content?

I do not write sponsored posts. I want to bring you real, unbiased information. However, if a post is sponsored by a company and it is a paid sponsorship, I will disclose this clearly in the beginning of the post.

About Us

Welcome to the Marketing Annuity and Home to the Game of Milestones 

Financial independence shouldn’t be such a mystery. It should be the objective of evey school to teach, but very little if anything is taught about money in school. Time has come to right this wrong. We look to be a part of the growing movement to help people look for answers independent of Wall Street, K Street and Pennsylvania Avenue. 

During this crucial time, a growing retirement crisis not only in the US but across the globe, we look to help as many people as we can. In serving one another, we become free.

All the best,

Getting Started

When I show people Bob Proctor’s video on “The Real Secret to Wealth”, they watch it and immediately know that people working for money is not a path to create wealth because they run out of time. This is not in any way a put down for working a job, in fact I’m about as blue collar as they come. Nor am I putting down the 45 year retirement plan that includes saving a percentage of your paycheck to take care of yourself during old age, that is a prudent and a self-sufficient way to prepare for the unknown future. The viewers immediately jump to putting money to work by investing and most unfortunately realize, they don’t have enough money to create wealth with investment either.

As Bob Procter explains, there are only two different ways to earn money, people at work and money at work. Most don’t have enough time or money to truly create wealth from either alone. But there are three strategies and the third strategy can be a true path to wealth, which involves setting up multiple sources of income. In short, Bob is talking about business and many can be turnkey micro businesses which you can start and have business all over the world and you can have it today if your heart desires! Strategy #3, which Bob calls M3 is a strategy that can multiply your time and money. Watch the video, I watch it almost every day, the simple meaning is crucial if you are to create wealth to support the lifestyle of your dreams.
