Master Money and Investing: Jedi and Ninja Wealth

I remember when I used to feel inadequate about money and investing.  I felt like I was floating in the middle of a dangerous ocean, with no wind in my sails, and I lost my direction home.

It was a helpless, scary feeling to know almost nothing about money and investing, because I desperately wanted to master money, but I didn’t know where to start.

There is a massive difference between being rich and being wealthy.  They are as different as living with, and without a heart.  They may look like identical experiences on a spreadsheet, or from the outside looking in, but being rich and being wealthy, are two drastically different experiences.

I can remember the moment when I first noticed the difference between the two lifestyles, and the moment I chose the goal of building wealth in my life.

I was at a Christian networking event I had been invited to.  I am a sales person in my day job, so after engaging in small talk with a few strangers and looking for business, I found a table and waited for the speaker to take the stage.
