Accumulation vs. Acceleration: Making Your Money Work For You w/Chris Mile

Conventional financial advice dictates that we should save everything, spend nothing, let compound interest work for us and hope that will give us a good life.

The sad truth is, this is a big lie financial advisors get people to buy into. Instead of parking our money, making it work hard for us is the true path to financial independence and freedom.

There’s a huge difference between accumulation and acceleration. When we put money in motion, we create a powerful tailwind that gives us control, and makes it possible for us to live our dream life. It makes it possible for us to get out of the rat race and work because we want to, not because we have to.

How does the concept of compound interest do us a huge disservice as investors? Why should we be flexible when it comes to the strategies of financial freedom?

In this episode, I’m joined by cash flow expert, author, and founder of Money Ripples, and the Anti-Financial Advisor, Chris Miles. He talks about his journey, retiring twice and how to use our money to create the life we want.

Three Things You’ll Learn In This Episode 

Why accumulating money actually puts us at a disadvantage
We’re often told to focus on accumulating money, and to enjoy the fruits of compound interest, but that isn’t the best way to gain financial freedom. If we park our money, it’s hard to get it to work for us. The wealthiest and most successful people in the world, and even banks keep their money in motion.

The importance of being flexible as an investor
Strategies and tactics are not absolutes, we have to be flexible about them. When it comes to what it takes to gain financial freedom, the strategies change with circumstances or time. What remains the same are the principles and fundamentals. As long as we stick to the fundamentals, there is room to shift strategies.

Why we have to choose our advisors wisely
Be careful of who you take financial advice from. We have to follow the advice of people who are living the life we want, the people who are living our perfect day. Many financial advisors don’t take the advice they give their clients, or follow the strategies they tell people to follow.
