Investing in People: How to Look at Relationships as an Investment – Part #2

November 19, 2005 - Get free updates of new posts here

Where do you start and how do you get there?

Research, research, research! If you look at any person as being a valuable investment, you will be RICH!

Not rich with earthly possessions, this is a form of wealth that will last a lifetime. Here’s how to invest in people. Imagine yourself as a billionaire. A billionaire not rich with tangible money, but money only the “life economic” system will honor. You have all this money to invest in the “life economic” system, what will you do with it? It is basically a free investment and you make of it what you put into it. It is finding out your own personal formula of investment and profitability.

Meeting someone in class, on the bus, on the street, and yes, meeting someone in a club or bar (I have met the most interesting and candid people there) is a great start. EVERYONE is a stock that is ready to be invested into, and EVERYONE has a story. That story is like a marketing presentation of a company’s stock profile, and if you want to hear about it to invest into it, you will need to invest a little of you to get more of them in return. A little investment is good, no harm or risk whatsoever.

Remember you are a billionaire, and no one became a billionaire over night or without some risk attached! Investing in people takes time. Hey if the investment doesn’t work, you ALWAYS have the option to “cash out” (more about this in future parts)!

    Oh man, I totally agree. Not that you want to look at everyone as a means to an end, but too often people discount the relationships in their life as something less valuable than their finances. Great relationships bring benefits to everyone around you, and that’s why I devote so much time to helping people with theirs.

    I have a question tho…How do you go up to a random person and start talking?

    I can meet people through friends or gatherings. But to go up to someone in a bus or anywhere is quite difficult. How do you do it? I mean like how do you approach them and what do u open with?
