Have you heard before that 225,000 people have died “Iatrogenic deaths?”
According to the journal of the American Medical Association it is the third largest cause of death in the United States, Iatrogenic.
What does this word mean? Is it rare disease? Is it genetic mutation?
No, it is actually referring to an inadvertent death caused by a doctor or a hospital or incorrect or unnecessary medical procedure.
Why they don’t say so?
Because it does not serve a medical institutions interest to put it in plain language so average person can understand.
Same thing is applied o financial world,
For example, financial industry, charge you different fees, mutual funds one of them, they charge different types of fees,
you don’t know and it will be impossible for you to understand they are taking much more than you would ever imagine.
Why the financial industry or the financial advisor does not serve your best interest, lot of money should be yours, but they take it.
You have to understand that there is conflict of interest, most financial advisors paid more or less depend on how much you invest, they paid commission or bonus based on your investment.
I lost lot of money from investing my money with the wrong people in the wrong deals and I do not want you to be in the same place.
Particularly, I invested with an individual who repeatedly told me: “You Can Trust Me.”
If someone is always rushing to tell you they’re trustworthy, it’s a sign they’re probably anything but.
As Robert Kiyosaki said:
“Safeguard your money, the world out there to take your money. Those people are smart, very well trained on how to persuade and convinced you, they are more powerful than you, so they can easily take your money, they are cute ad cudly. You have to know that thieves are not only those stole precious things and criminal in prisons, in real worlds they take different types.”
I am not here to scare you, but I want you to increase your financial awareness to see what is going on behind the scenes.
It is good to listen to other people investment ideas, but never let them convince you to get involved before doing your own research.
Here are few tips:
1- Never invest without a contract in place and be careful who you trust.
2- Check out their claims by looking online, reading about the company and talking to trusted advisors.
3- Be careful of someone calling you with lot of promises or begging you to invest in a sweet deal. These types of people are trying to stir up your emotions by selling you an improbable dream. Don’t let that happens to you.
4- Be aware of Ponzi scheme, it is an investment fraud where people invest and their return on the investment is paid from the money of new investors. So, people who invested in first were paid their return using the investment money from people who invested in the second year. A lot of people lost their life savings in this scheme.
Get rich quick scheme are a dime a dozen.
Don’t buy the theory: this is how life is, life is unfair, find the way to make it fair!
If you want to increase your financial awareness and be financially educated to secure your financial future, grap a copy of my book “What They Don’t Teach You In Schools about Money HERE
What others said about the book?
The title of the book says it all; the content of the book truly does explain life changing concepts and things they do not teach you in schools. It made me come to a realization that this would be a great class to have in a university, not just for finance majors but for all majors.
The book has cleared the age old myths and psychology revolving around attaining money and success.
It is extremely educative about the various forms of investment and market risks.
The book truly “teaches everything they don’t teach in school about money”.
