Going back to our theme from last week: showing up; here’s a quick story.

Over 15 years ago, a student invited 5 people to his dorm room to discuss a business idea.

Only 2 of the 5 invited showed up.

Today those two are both Billionaires!

Dustin Moskovitz has a net worth $9.9 Billion.

Eduardo Saverin has a net worth of $5.8 Billion.

And the guy with the great idea?

Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, with a current net worth of over $35 Billion.

As of Jan 2019 Facebook’s market valuation increased to $390 Billion!

Now, we’re not saying that showing up will make you billionaires.

But we are saying that showing up WILL definitely make you more successful than if you didn’t show up.

What does it mean by showing up?

It means to stop creating excuses on why it won’t work, and to take a leap of faith to learn more about whatever the opportunity you’re being presented is.

We hold our giveaway once a quarter. The point of the giveaway is to encourage you to start getting your finances in order so you won’t have to worry about it in the future.

Over 100 people said they were going to do something about it. Less than 20 people actually did.

Of course, one of the 20 ended up winning the giveaway (congrats again Eugence!), but the other 19 are definitely better off now than they were before taking action.

Our giveaway is happening again.

We hope to see you become someone who will show up.

The reason we’re doing that is because we want you to take actions to improve your financial situation. And we’re willing to give you an incentive to do it (after all, you get incentives to buy things all the time, even though it might not be the best thing for you financially).

This is how the giveaway works:

  1. Decide what part of your finances you want to improve
  2. Find which actions will give you the bonus of entering the RM500 giveaway by improving that part of your finances
  3. Take action (ie sign up) on whatever it is that will help you get there (has to be through the links below so we can track)
  4. Once you finish taking action, you can officially qualify to win in the giveaway.
