Why Ken Griffin bought a $238 Million home

It was recently reported that Ken Griffin, the American billionaire and founder of Citadel, a financial firm in the US paid $238 million for a home in New York in the same week he bought a $123 million home in London.

Griffin broke the record of the most expensive home ever sold in America when he acquired the top three floors of a luxury skyscraper in Manhattan, New York.

Well, I guess it’s some news and that’s okay, but the question is, why is he buying these choice homes?

Known for his financial acumen, Ken Griffin have started putting a lot of money into real estate in recent years.

He has a mansion in Palm Beach, bought the most expensive home ever sold in Chicago last year, and just added a mansion down the street to Buckingham Palace and this one in New York.

Today, he has about $750 million worth of properties. The question again is why is he buying?

He is investing. That’s the answer.

Mr Griffin like all wealthy people knows that real estate is one of the most lucrative investment strategies to create more wealth.

Though we do not all have Griffin’s kind of means, nevertheless, we can start from where we are.

P.S: I’m running a webinar sometime soon to help interested people who want to start investing in real estate.

Stay tuned, and until then, keep winning!

How to Make 2019 Count…

Posted on: 3 Comments

Congratulations…

We all made it to 2019.

I’m so excited about this brand new year. It is another 365 days of opportunities for you and me.

This year, I will be sharing ideas that will make 2019 a great one for you. But today, I want to challenge you to be grateful for everything that you have.

8 Simple Ideas to make 2019 an amazing year.

1. BE EVER GRATEFUL

Be grateful for this New Year 2019, because many did not make it to this year, but you and I did. Learn to be grateful every day of your life for everything, and to your creator until you take the last breath.

Gratitude has its blessings.

You’ve got another 365 days, so use this wisely.

2. DREAM BIG

I need you to dream big this year.

Don’t make small dreams, because you don’t need little dreams.

You can dream Big!

Create an empire in your mind, believe God for the miraculous, and nothing will be impossible.

Also, make sure to be crystal clear of what you want in this year 2019, and aspire for something great that you haven’t experienced before.

3. BUILD GREAT RELATIONSHIPS

Make sure to build great relationships by identifying and belonging to new tribes.

Iron sharpens iron, look for people going where you are going and join them whether it’s a professional group or association, find people who are doing great exploits, people you can reach out to when you need a guide.

4. INVEST IN YOURSELF

Invest in yourself by feeding your mind with great ‘nutrients’ from books, seminars, training, online videos on YouTube, audiobooks from Audibles, coaching programs, mentorship and so on.

This is how to grow.

If you do not invest in yourself, your income cannot increase, so this year 2019, don’t forget to invest in yourself.

5. BE AN ACTION TAKER

Take actions.

Whatever your goals are this year, make sure you’re taking baby steps one after the other. Start doing what you want to do.

Keep moving, don’t stay static. This year is going to be an amazing year, and it’s going to be a challenging year, but it is going to reward action takers.

The ones who make plans and execute them, because doing and not just planning is what will differentiate you from others in 2019.

6. GIVE BACK.

Identify two, three, or four people you can be a blessing to this year, it could be a charity organization or an individual, just make sure to give back. Invest in them because the young shall grow so whatever you know, deposit this in them.

7. DECIDE TO CHANGE

In 2019, nothing will be different from 2018…but the only thing that can change is you. If you don’t change, nothing is going to change.

The year is going to move so rapidly, so put your mind to changing for the best. Appraise 2018 and identify areas where you didn’t do well, but don’t see those things as failures but as experience needed to navigate 2019.

8. TAKE GOOD CARE OF YOURSELF THIS YEAR

Your health is important.

As you have heard, health is wealth. So do not joke with your well-being. Make sure to see the doctor occasionally or regularly depending on your need. And be aware of things like your blood pressure level, cholesterol level, your weight and all.

Also, make sure to always eat and sleep well. As you do all these I believe God that there would be a tremendous change in your life and you will be a success story that I would want to talk about this year.

God bless you!
