Grant Cardone's Money Advice

These 100% true statements that will guarantee you never have money:
• a penny saved is a penny earned
• a home is a great investment
• money doesn't grow on trees
• get a good job
• get a good education
• work hard and save your money
• invest in a 401k and on and on--they go with the promise that you will live happily ever after. Are you nodding in agreement?

Well, these are all the things you were taught that at one time might have been true for your grandparents but today will only ensure you are a mere slave to your finances--or lack thereof. These false ideas about money, saving, investing, business, and education have trapped hundreds of millions of people. The illusion of the middle class is sold so well that many who read this will think I am being sacrilegious.

I remember my father telling me, "money doesn't grow on trees." The point here is that money was a scarce commodity that needed to be protected, conserved, saved and budgeted.

The problem with that mentality is it suggests that money is in a shortage, but it is not. Money comes from a cotton bush and is printed by groups approved by government agencies. There is no shortage of money on this planet and there never has been. The only shortage is people going out to meet people that have abundances of money.

If you were raised like me I know you've heard, "a penny saved is a penny earned." Ugh wrong, a penny saved is a penny. This thinking is why so many people never have anything. The biblical saying, "ask and you shall receive" is true and today that means get into sales, marketing and the business of asking for money and then learn how to ask often and ask for more.

You focus on pennies you get pennies.

I have been buying apartment properties for almost 25 years. With over 40 transactions in seven states I have bought and sold over $500 million in real estate. By selecting the right properties in the right locations and then being very smart in how you manage the properties, they can produce a number of benefits unmatched by other investments.

Here are nine simple reasons why investing income producing real estate is an excellent choice for protecting and growing your wealth:

#1 Dependable Income Stream

One of the biggest benefits to income producing Real Estate Investments is that the assets are generally secured by nine to fourteen month leases which provide a regular and dependable income stream that should produce positive cash flow higher than typical stock dividend yields.

#2 Multiply Asset Value through Leverage

Another important characteristic of commercial real estate investing is the ability to place debt on the asset which is several times the original equity. This allows you to buy more assets with less money and significantly multiply asset value. $100,000 can buy $300-$400k in property.

#3 Multiply Cash-Flow with Low-Cost Debt

Placing “positive leverage” on an asset, allows for investors to effectively increase positive cash flow from operations by borrowing money at a lower cost than the property pays out. Ie. If a property generates a 6% cash on cash return were to have debt placed on it at 4%, the investors would be paid 6% on the equity portion and approximately 2% on the money borrowed, thereby leveraging debt.

#4 Debt Reduced by Property Income

The debt on the property will be reduced by the income of the property’s net operating income, NOI. NOI is figured by the gross income less all expenses before debt. The NOI will sufficiently fund the debt payments thereby reducing the debt balance and creating equity.

#5 Inflation Hedge

Real estate investments have historically shown the highest correlation to inflation when compared to other asset classes such as the S&P 500, 10-year treasuries, and corporate bonds. As countries around the world continue to print money to spur economic growth, it is important to recognize the benefits of owning income producing real estate as a hedge against inflation. Generally speaking, when inflation occurs, the price of real estate, particularly multi-tenant assets will also rise.

#6 Physical Asset

Income-producing real estate is one of the few investment classes that as a hard asset has meaningful value. The property’s land has value, as does the structure itself and the income it produces has value to future investors.Income producing real estate investments do not have red and green days as does the stock market.

#7 Tax Benefits

The US Tax code benefits real estate owners in a number of ways including no limit mortgage interest deductions and depreciation accelerations that can shield a portion of the positive cash flow generated and paid out to investors. At the time of sale, IRS allows investors a 1031 provision, allowing investors to exchange into a like kind instrument and defer all taxable gains into the future. (See your tax advisor for full explanation.)

#8 Pride of Ownership

The right property in the right location with right tenants and right ownership mindset can produce a tremendous pride of ownership factor that is highest among all asset classes.

#9 Appreciation of Asset Value

Income producing Real Estate Investments have historically provided excellent appreciation in value that meet and exceed other investment types. Properties historically increase in value as the net operating income of the property improves through rent increases and more effective management of the asset.

While no one can ensure the future of rents or income properties’ values this asset class seems positioned to continue to benefit from a number of other social economic issues that I will save for another time.

If you have any questions post them in the comments and I will do my best to answer.

This is ridiculously sexy...

Porsche super sports car with hybrid drive reaches its limited edition volume of 918 units

The 918 Spyder has completed a remarkable journey in June 2015. After 21 months of production, the final Porsche 918 Spyder came off the assembly line in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen right on schedule. But the legacy of this technology pioneer will reach far beyond its production time. Future generations of sports cars will benefit directly from innovations found in the 918 Spyder.

The 918 Spyder was systematically developed to be a performance hybrid with plug-in technology. The hybrid super sports concept car made its debut at the 2010 Geneva International Motor Show where it was met with overwhelming approval. In the summer of 2010, the Supervisory Board of Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG gave the green light for its production development.

When the car was launched to the market in late 2013, the 918 Spyder represented a continuation of a series of super sports cars in Porsche history.

The 904 Carrera GTS, the 959, the 911 GT1 and the Carrera GT were technology pioneers and stood among the ultimate sports cars of their respective decades. In 1963, for example, Porsche created a steel and polymer body for the 904 Carrera GTS that served as a prime example of how to unite stability and lightweight design.

In 1986, the 959 successfully introduced an electronically-controlled all-wheel drive system to the sports car world. Ten years later, the 911 GT1 paved the way for implementing carbon-fiber technology in production vehicles. In 2003, the Carrera GT made its debut as the first production vehicle whose monocoque and subframe were made entirely of carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP).

More so than any of its predecessors, the 918 Spyder is now providing a strong push for the advanced development of technologies for the sports cars of the future. The key technology is a drive concept which combines a high-performance combustion engine with two electric motors; its ingenious operating strategy is one of the unique aspects of the 918 Spyder.

It considers the various requirements ranging from an efficiency-oriented driving profile to maximum performance. In doing so, it provides important know-how for future production developments. To maximize the efficiency and performance of the drivetrain depending on the individual driving situation, Porsche developers defined a total of five different operating modes. As in a race car, they are activated by a "map switch" on the steering wheel.

Porsche applied its leading hybrid know-how in preparing the characteristic maps and the algorithm stored in them for controlling the three drive units and other systems. This know-how will also be applied to future hybrid drives.

The car also creates an important foundation for the hybrid drive of tomorrow in its thermal management concept that features five separate cooling circuits and the innovative hybrid cooling of the rear electric motor using air and water. Another example with future implications: the Porsche 918 Spyder can convert far more kinetic energy into electrical energy than other hybrid vehicles because of its intelligent control of generator functionality and conventional brakes. Its enormous regenerative power boosts efficiency and driving range. A similar form of this recovery system is implemented in the LMP1 prototypes of the 919 Hybrid which Porsche raced to an impressive 1-2 victory at the 24 hours of Le Mans.

The 918 technology platform also blazed new trails with spectacular solutions like the all-carbon body, fully variable aerodynamics and a rear axle steering system. Adaptive aerodynamics and rear axle steering have already made their way into production sports cars, such as in the 911 Turbo models and in the 911 GT3 and 911 GT3 RS.

The 918 Spyder embodies classic Porsche virtues and sets cornerstones for the future. On the one hand, the car embodies performance. In September 2013, the super sports car – with 887 total system hp – set the lap record for street-legal vehicles with production tires on the North Loop of the Nürburgring with a time of 6 minutes 57 seconds – a record that has never been equaled by any other production car since. On the other hand, the car embodies efficiency.

Yielding an EPA rating of 67 MPGe, the 918 Spyder convincingly illustrates the potential of plug-in hybrid technology – not only for economical driving, but more importantly for the typical sports car driving pleasure it can offer.

Furthermore, Porsche also implemented innovative ideas in the manufacturing process of the hybrid super sports car. Porsche has applied for patents related to many of its innovations in assembly and quality assurance which fulfill the most stringent ergonomic requirements.

They demonstrate that Porsche is setting the standard for innovative capabilities far beyond the automobile itself. For instance, the entire assembly process takes place with wireless tools. The best example: battery-powered screwdrivers controlled via Bluetooth. They perform their work nearly silently, increase flexibility for workers at the workplace and ensure – via a database link – that specified torques are reliably performed and documented.

The highly-adjustable assembly elevating truck – a specially developed solution – was designed as an ergonomic tool for finishing the two-seat monocoque. Another new type of scissors lift platforms also simplified installation of the approximately 300 pound high-voltage battery.

Leather finishing and assembly tables in 918 manufacturing are considered the benchmark for ergonomics and flexibility. They can be used to manufacture different parts, for instance, by the use of changeable inserts, so that station cycle times can be fully exploited. This is how Porsche also achieved maximum efficiency in the production process for the 918 Spyder.
