My name is Billy B @ Wealth Well Done. I was a normal college kid until I went to prison for ten years at the age of 21 after a good friend of mine died from a drug overdose. I was released in 2012, and immediately chased every dream I had while incarcerated. I was surprised when those dreams accidentally lead me to creating wealth, and that’s the journey I write about at wealthwelldone.com.
After 1.5 years of making friendships in this community, I am finally getting around to introducing myself here.
My first national feature on MSN Money was published today. I’d be honored if you’d check it out: How One Man Went From Prison To A Path of Wealth.
These are three steps to wealth I promote:
1) Escape Your Prison. Weather this means forgiving yourself for a mistake, or destroying debt, or breaking chemical or mental addictions, the first step to wealth is simply escaping the prisons that incarcerate your true self.
2) Compound Your Cash. Once your mind and spirit are free from the cages we lock ourselves in: save, save, save, and invest, invest, invest, so you’ll have surplus amounts of cash to use as a tool to help you achieve your purpose in life.
3) Pursue Your Purpose. Now that your free from all the life and money problems that stole so much of your positive energy, start listening to what your soul wants to accomplish with your life. Once you can hear the deepest dreams in your soul, dedicate 100% of your money, mind, and energy to fearlessly pursue that dream.
