I want to empower working professionals to see what is really happening in the world. I want everyone to realize they don't have to fit their lives around their work; instead, workers can become investors and live a life of abundance, satisfaction, and joy. Paul David Thompson
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (PRWEB) April 17, 2019
After the births of his children and his wedding day, author Paul David Thompson says the best day of his life was the day he got laid off from his corporate job. While that may sound counter-intuitive, getting laid off freed Thompson from living life following someone else’s plan and building someone else’s dream, enabling him to live a life of his own design. Thompson says, “I felt as though I was without purpose. I was searching for what I should be doing. I was rudderless. I knew there had to be something better. But I was just comfortable enough to not make a change. That’s what is so insidious about working a 9-to-5 in corporate America. You’re treading water and just getting enough oxygen to survive, but not enough to thrive. I wasn’t living a life of purpose or significance. I was living a flat life, devoid of personal growth.”
In his new book, Escape: Money Mindset to Freedom with Stocks, Real Estate, and Starting Your Own Business, Thompson teaches his readers how to live a life of their own design. First, Thompson teaches his readers how to figure out what, exactly, the life of their dreams looks like and how to get in the right mindset to pursue that life. There are three basic steps to success: investing in yourself, investing in your network, and investing in assets. Investing in yourself may involve developing more marketable skills, earning a better certification, or getting more practical experience. Investing in your network means that you are both investing in relationships that can help your career and investing in relationships with other investors, who can give you advice and share in your triumphs and struggles on your path to financial freedom. If you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with, those people should be people who support and motivate you.
Thompson outlines several paths to wealth by investing in assets. In Escape, Thompson covers simple stock investing, real estate investing, and building a business. Thompson shares specific techniques for building wealth, using his own journey to financial freedom to teach readers the easiest and least risky path to success. Thompson’s advice is like a friend offering their hand to guide you down a path you’re not familiar with, a navigator who knows the way.
Escape has become a #1 best-seller on Amazon in the Customer Relations and Econometrics categories. Thompson also hosts the podcast Ready Investor One, which teaches people how to use investments to live a life of their design.
