At 9:15am this morning I was sitting at the train station. I was heading into central London for a couple of meetings.
I was happily enjoying the calm morning sun (yes, there’s still a bit of sun here in the UK in March) when my phone buzzed in my pocket.
Now I’m a major geek when it comes to tech. If you’ve ever read any of my work before you’ll know this already. But these days I’m actually able to tell from the vibration of my phone what it’s in relation to.
Sounds daft, right?
But I could tell you from the vibration on my leg whether I was getting an,
- Alert from my RING doorbell
- Notification of movement in the hallway (usually the dog) from my Nest Camera
- A normal text message
- A WhatsApp message
- An email from Gmail
- Or even an email through Outlook’s Web Application
Yes I understand how peculiar that is. And perhaps I have a problem. Anyway, that’s not the point here…
The point is that this morning it was a WhatsApp message. I’ve got a fairly good idea who would message me at this time of the morning. It’s typically my brother.
It’s evening for him in Melbourne, so he’s probably put the kids to bed and is checking out something on Netflix I’ve been pestering him to watch.
We usually throw a bit of banter about. Often it’s complete drivel. But sometimes it’s ideas that generate really interesting discussion.
Today’s message was a doozy.
‘If you had to make $100,000 by tomorrow afternoon how would you do it? Without selling anything you already have?’
My initial response to those sorts of questions is usually, why? But not today. I thought about it for a few seconds and fired back.
‘I’d steal it.’
Now I might add that I’ve never stolen anything in my life. In fact, I’m almost too adherent to rules and laws. Some would even call me a ‘square’.
So I was a little shocked at my response and the speed at which I sent it.
Then I thought about it a little more and added a caveat,
‘If someone’s life depended on it – yours for instance – then I’d steal it.’
I added a few more alternatives,
‘I’d hit up a few mates I knew who could spare the cash and borrow it from them.’
‘I’d go all in on a high risk crypto play.’
‘I could possibly tap into my social networks to crowd source it.’
But it was possibly my last response, which was my finest,
‘I was going to say I’d prostitute myself for it…but then I realised you said ONLY $100K and I didn’t want to oversubscribe.’
Ask yourself the same question. If you had to raise $100K by tomorrow afternoon how would you do it? And what lengths would you go to in order to get it done?
Of course this is a hypothetical. So any answer is a moot point.
However if you took that question and made it more realistic, then how you answer will say a lot about your investment mindset, your openness to risk and how you look at opportunity.
The new question
Now I’ve changed the question slightly. The new question is,
‘If you had to raise $100,000 by the end of the year, how would you do it? Without selling anything you already have?’
Now that’s not a crazy question. It might sound crazy on the face of it, and to many people raising $100,000 in a year would be unheard of.
Most people don’t make that kind of money to save it. And most people don’t have enough money to invest into stocks to generate it.
But what if you could invest in opportunities to give yourself a real chance at turning just a few hundred bucks into potentially $100,000 or more?
The best way I know of to give you every shot at generating $100,000, I come back to crypto investing.
Understand, educate and invest
Now you must understand that crypto investing is extremely high risk. If you’ve never set foot into this wild world then you need to make sure you learn the basics. You need the right tour guide to show you the ropes and get you started.
If you take the steps to understand and learn about crypto markets then you put yourself in a position to cash in on its potential. You will learn about why they exist, what the dangers are, and the potential. You’ll learn what separates the good cryptos from the bad cryptos. You’ll learn how to sniff out a scam and to navigate this crazy world.
Taking these steps will help open your eyes to a high-risk, high-return world. A world that could potentially deliver gains of up to $100,000 in a year.
We’ve seen it happen to investors before in crypto. Where a small stake can turn into $100,000 or more in a matter of months. It happened to early investors in ethereum, ripple, bitcoin, stellar, NEM and dash.
Today these opportunities still exist. It’s why we’ve put together our crypto advisory service Sam Volkering’s Secret Crypto Network. It’s why we try and help educate everyday Aussie investors about the life-changing opportunities in play.
We think this is a market you simply can’t ignore. It’s a market that’s going to be around, in our view, forever. And if you educate yourself now, we think $100,000 could be just a speck in the kinds of returns a long-term crypto strategy could deliver.
So if you asked us again how we would raise $100,000 in a year, our answer would be a small stake — one you can afford to lose — in crypto to ride this high-risk, potentially mega-reward market.
