Why Buying Unconventional Businesses Will Help You Gain Financial Freedom With Codie Sanchez [Ep. 68]
On their journey towards financial freedom, many investors hone in on assets like real estate and stocks, often overlooking the power of purchasing online businesses.
Buying unconventional businesses is contrarian investor Codie Sanchez’s bread and butter. Codie has acquired a personal empire of cash-flowing assets across multiple business models. She teaches investors how to do the same as the founder of Contrarian Thinking, an educational resource where investors and entrepreneurs can learn about how to create an ocean of wealth through different income streams.
In this episode, Codie explains why buying businesses is a great way to fast track your way to financial freedom. She walks us through the first steps to diversifying your income through online business acquisitions and the common mistakes many entrepreneurs make when trying to achieve financial independence. According to Codie,
“The number one reason people don’t achieve financial freedom is they do not spend the time thinking about it, they do not spend the time learning about it, and then they do not spend the time taking action on it.”
Codie also discusses the philosophy behind being a contrarian investor, and how to effectively manage a portfolio of businesses.
