Capital Gain Is A Ponzi Scheme Says Kiyosaki

Thursday, November 22, 2012

Robert Kiyosaki calls capital gain a Ponzi Scheme

Why?  Because you are looking for a bigger idiot to buy something off you at a greater price than you had paid for in the first place. 

"Capital Gains is like this goose that has laid a golden egg and you eat the goose.  Why would you eat the goose?"

Unlike property traders, investors are in it for the long haul.  Increase your cashflow by adding value to your property, give your tenant a good home and the rent payments will keep coming in.  Take care of the cashflow because that is money you get in your hands today.  If you end up with more capital after x number of years than that is an absolute bonus!

Because cashflow is so important, we are pleased to announce the launch of the APIA Cashflow Group from March 2013 onwards.  All meetings will be focused on how to use what you already have to increase your cash-flow.

Are you a cap gain investor or a cash-flow investor?  Tell us below.

The Tenancy Practice Service and TPS Credit Control work closely with the Auckland Property Investors' Association. Our vision of bringing helpful resources, documents and high quality services to Auckland Property Investors and Property Managers is shared by APIA, so its a partnership that works well. 

The Auckland Property Investors' Association is a great organisation for those who want access to advice and information from a range of industry experts and partners.

Through the Association I found the channels and methods to fund the purchase of property I never dreamed about. Grant Brown

All round it has been one of those things Neil and I felt was really worthwhile belonging to. We have learned so much it has just built our confidence in what we are doing.

I read two articles in the monthly magazine that saved me over $5,000. That is my membership fee for the next 26 years and I am sure I will learn a whole lot more! John Duncan
Fantastic organisation. The networking opportunities are brilliant and provide us with information and opportunities that cannot be obtained anywhere else. We learn something new at every meeting and we've been in this game for nearly 20 years. Pauline and Gyanen Kumar

I find the information obtained from various APIA meetings very useful in guiding my own property investment and rental management.  I also enjoy the networking opportunities with like-minded investors.  I am inspired by other investors’ success and find the more experiences and knowledge that I share with others, the more confident I become.  

Thanks to all APIA event organizers and administrators for your brilliant work.

I like talking to people and learning from their experience because it gives me the confidence to invest well. I think it is a knowledge thing. I now know I am doing things the right way.

Stephen Weatherall

My APIA membership has become a total success.

Every time I attend a monthly or regional meeting I come away with so many useful and positive tips that have added value to my property investments and management.

Not only that, the website is a great place for practical advice and useful information. It has now evolved into an important resource for my business.

Talk about value for money! The discounts I have been getting at Bunnings when I present my APIA membership card have more than paid for my annual subscription!
