Podcast – Episode 150 – My Plan To Become a Billionaire

Podcast Transcript

Hey there passive trader, have you ever thought about what it would be like to be a Billionaire? Or even if you could become a billionaire? I know, I know, it’s pretty far fetched. But today, I want to talk about my plan to become a Billionaire. And you’ll see that it’s pretty easy. And something that’s pretty replicatable by just about anybody. Alright, so a few days ago, I was thinking about it, I was like, yeah, man, it’d be really cool. If you know, it wouldn’t be possible if I could become a billionaire.

And there’s mostly, most of the billionaires out there that we know of, you know, the Forbes 500, or whatever Fortune 100, whatever the different lists that they’re on, but the world’s richest people are billionaires, because they have taken a company public. So if you take a look at Elon Musk, or Warren Buffett, or Mark Zuckerberg, they are not, they don’t have money, they don’t have the billion dollars sitting around. It’s the stock that they own of the company that they started that they took public, that’s worth billions of dollars. And so they’re worth billions of dollars, because that stock is worth billions of dollars. Now, if their company goes out of business, they’re not a billionaire anymore. So I don’t know, you could argue if they’re actually worth billions or not, right. And in fact, these type of people, they don’t like to sell their stock. So it’s very difficult for them to actually get the money out of the company out of the stock, because for example, you know, let’s say Warren Buffett starts selling his shares, let’s say he wants a billion dollars to, I don’t know, buy the moon or something. Right, but he needs the money, and he starts selling his shares.

Well, people are going to know people are going to notice he has to tell. He has to disclose it. Because he’s a public company, and he’s the CEO. So people are going to know and they’re gonna be like, Why is Warren selling shares, oh, my god, something’s going on. And everybody’s gonna start selling their shares, and the stock is going to tank, right? Same thing happened with Elon Musk, this is a real life example, when he wanted to buy Twitter, he had to sell his Tesla shares, some of them, because he didn’t have the money sitting around to pay for the Twitter shares. So he had to sell enough Tesla shares, to not only pay the taxes on everything that he’s selling, and the gains that he’s making, but then also pay for the other shares for Twitter. And so the stock price of Tesla, when he started selling was, was at around about 285, close to $300. And when it was done, he was at about $100, one on one. So if stock price dropped from 300, to 100.

And that’s why it’s not a good idea for these guys to be selling their shares. Now, that’s not the type of billionaire that I’m talking about. I don’t want to be a stock market, going public-type billionaire, I want to be the guy that actually has the billion dollars in assets, something that I could sell pretty easily and have that money converted into billion dollars. Right? So how do we do that? Well, there are three things that you need to become a billionaire.

Number one, you need to have an investment vehicle something to put the money in, that’s going to give you a good return. Number two, you need to have time, because it’s going to compound and grow. And then number three, you have to have some money to start with, the more the better, right? The more time, the better, the more money you have to start with the better. And the better the return that you get on your investment, the better. So the reason I was thinking about this is because, if you’ve seen my other episodes and stuff, you might know that I’m starting a hedge fund, and it’s getting ready to launch pretty soon. And I am putting in about $700,000 of my own capital into this fund, at least in the beginning. And I plan on leaving it all in there. I leave it you know, I don’t want it to be I don’t want to take it out. I’m just gonna leave it in there and let it grow and grow and grow. And so I was like, Huh, I wonder how much it could grow to? Right?

So that’s my starting capital. That’s the money I have. I have, of course, other funds, but we’re only talking about this. And so I was thinking I’m like, Okay, how much money can I make? And really the goal for the fund is to make about 20% per year. Now, the strategies that we talked about, we can make a lot more right than 20% a year, but I want to be conservative and even 20% a year is most people will say that’s not conservative, that’s very aggressive. But because of the strategies we’re using and the money we’ve made in the percentage that we’ve made in the past, I’m pretty confident that we can make 20% a year minimum so I don’t want to shoot for the moon. I wanna say Oh, Okay, if that’s what I can make reliably, predictably year after year, that’s the number I’m going to go with.

Let’s a little be, you know, a little conservative on this. So let’s say that I’m going to make 20%. So those are the top two things I already have, right? I have my starting capital, and I have my return on investment. Now, what do we need? We need time? So how much time am I going to put into this? Well, the reason I was thinking about this is because I had been to an event that was.. it was about regenerative medicine. And really, the basic of it is that with all the new technologies, and the new treatments that are coming online, people are going to be able to live longer and longer than they ever had before. Right now, in the US the age range or the agespan lifespan for the average man is somewhere in the 80s. In the next few years, it’s probably going to grow and continue to grow. So I was thinking, you know, I’m probably going to live or I goal, my plan is to live to 120 and still be healthy. I want to be a healthy 120. I don’t want to be an old and decrepit at 120. But If I can stay healthy, then yes, I would love to live to 120. So that is my goal. And currently I am 46 years old.

So if you do the math, 120 minus 46 is 74 years. So I have 74 years left of life. I haven’t even hit my midlife crisis yet. But I actually, I haven’t hit midlife yet, I did have the crisis already. So hopefully I’ll get another one. But I have 74 years left. So now all we got to do is the math. So I’m over here at this website, which is investor.gov.

Okay, now investor.gov is a government website from run by the US Securities and Exchange Commission. And I’m going to put my numbers into the website and see what we come up with. All right, so initial investment is 700,000. Monthly contribution, I’m going to do zero and if you want to use this, this calculator yourself, it’s at investor.gov. Let’s just put that out there investor.gov. And this is the compound interest calculator. All right, length in time in years. So let’s do 74. Right, at estimated interest rate, I’m going to put 20, because that’s where we’re going to make every year interest rate variance, I’m going to put zero because we’ll just make it and then compound frequencies annually. So we’re gonna do 20% a year. So if I put in $700,000, into my fund, and I leave it there for 74 years, and I make 20% a year. Now, obviously, when I’m 100 years old, 120 years old, I’m probably not going to be running a hedge fund. I don’t know if the hedge fund is going to be around for that long. If it is, it’ll be you know, maybe my kids grandkids, great grandkids running it, or we’ll find this as a succession plan. And somebody else will take over hopefully and, and learn from us, and they’ll continue it or have to find some other type of investments. But this is just, you know, just just for fun to figure this out. So those are our numbers. And I’m going to hit Calculate, and you’re gonna see if I can actually get close to being a billionaire. So go ahead, click Calculate. And the results are in– it says here in 74 years, I will have oh, that’s a lot of numbers. Okay, those are the hundreds, those are the 1000s or the millions. And these are the billions over here. So this is telling me that in 74 years, I will have $506 billion. That’s half a trillion dollars. And this is real spendable money that I can take out and spend it. Not, you know, because I took a company public and the money is stuck in there. $506 billion in 74 years. That’s crazy. Because if the math if the health people are right, the doctors are right, and I can actually live to 120, and I can actually make 20%, which I think we can. That’s insane. I don’t know if I’m going to be the richest man in the world at that point. But $506 billion, who knows what’s gonna happen to 74 years, but that’s a ton of money. Oh my god. Okay. What if we make it a little bit, you know, a little bit less. So how long would it take me to get to a billion.

So if you look at this, it’s saying here that the numbers are showing that in 40 years. 40 years from now, I will be worth over a billion dollars. So I’m 46. So that’s 86. 86 years old. If I make 20% a year, and I don’t have any more money. I start with the 700 and I just leave it there make 20% a year. I can be worth a billion dollars in 40 years. In Age 86, which, even in today’s timeframe is doable, I can probably live to 86. Right? My father’s still alive. He’s 80. So 86, even in today’s health standards, it’s doable. So becoming a billionaire is not that difficult.

I mean, the numbers are just there, the numbers are mind blowing astronomical, will we make 20% every year? Probably not. Some of yours will be more, some of yours will be less some of yours or lose money. But if you can average the 20, then you can do it. Now, obviously, everybody doesn’t have $700,000, some of you actually have more. Some of you have less, some of you have no more, but not everybody’s goal is to be worth a billion dollars. So you don’t need to start off with a massive nest egg. The real thing is you need to start with something, and you compound it and let it grow.

And the billion dollars was just, you know, a crazy thought. I don’t think I’m ever going to be spending a billion dollars in my lifetime. And whatever I can make on that, if I take it out or put it in, like the interest on that. That’s crazy. Crazy, crazy, crazy. Nobody can spend that much money. At least I know. I can’t, you know, so even if you were let’s say you only had 5 million. Right? That’s all you had $5 million, and you made 20% a year, that’s a million dollars. I don’t think I can spend a million dollars. Now, obviously, you got taxes and all that stuff, too. But you know, even if taxes are 50%, you got $500,000 a year to live off. Most people would be okay. $500,000 a year. So you only need $5 million to live like a billionaire. So maybe your goal is not to have the billion dollars, but you just want to live like a billionaire. I mean, yes, you could have multiple houses, you could have a yacht, you could have horses, you could have a Lambo and a Ferrari, and you could buy whatever clothes you want, and fly private, you know, all of these things nowadays can be rented, you don’t have to buy them, you don’t have to pay full price for them, you can rent them or take a loan on them, and you make the payments and 500,000 a year would let you live like a billionaire. And you only need what $5 million in investments earning 20% a year.

And with passive trading, yes, you can make 20% a year, we have people doing much, much better than that. So it’s definitely doable. It’s definitely in the realm of possibility. Even though it doesn’t seem like a billion dollars does not seem like the realm of possibility. But it could be in my cards as possible. So anything is possible. It depends on the vehicle that you’re using to get you to your financial goals. And that’s it. So you find the vehicle that works for you, it can take you there, you just put in the time, let it run a lot of people they take the money out, you know, if it makes a little bit or they get scared or the market drops, they take the money out of there. Oh, no, I can’t. But you gotta leave it in there, keep it, let it keep growing, you know, pretend like you don’t even have it. And you just do your thing, live your life. There’ll be ups and downs. And that’s life. Economics, ups and downs helped up and down, family up and down. All kinds of stuff job up and down. But you just let the money sit there, do its thing, let it grow and grow and grow. And then eventually, you’ll have so much you won’t know what to do with it. So that’s the goal for me for you. That’s what I want for you. That’s my goal for myself. And so that’s it. It’s my plan to be a billion dollars or billionaire. And remember that it’s very simple, right?

The plan to be a billion dollar. If you want to be a billionaire. What do you need, you need three things, you need a starting capital, you need time, and you need an investment vehicle that’s going to give you a good reliable, steady rate of return. The higher the better, the better starting capital, the better. The more time the better. And if you have all three of those, you can get $2 million, you can get to 10 million, 100 million, billion dollars or more. Half a trillion if you live long enough. Okay. There you go. Folks.
