In this video, I'm going to teach you something magical. How do you use credit cards to build your wealth? So most people think of credit cards and they think of debt. I'm going to think and re-condition your thinking that credit cards can be investment cards done properly. See, what we're taught is debt is bad and I'm going to teach you debt is fabulous, done right. So in this video, I'm going to teach you how everyone and I'm saying everyone uses their credit cards wrong. So first of all, your credit cards have a proper use to them and i'm going to teach you how to use the credit cards properly. I'm going to teach you a language that is not about credit cards being in bad debt. I'm going to teach you to rephrase that as investment cards for good debt and then I'm going to tell you some amazing stories how people literally become millionaires using credit cards.
Alright, so let's get to it credit cards, how are they used so improperly? Well, first of all, credit cards are critical your personal credit is critical and most people and it's amazing how many times like I'm teaching whether it's college students or just new folks that the difference between a debit card and credit card let's start there. By let's just about cards, a debit card is linked to your bank. It's money that's coming out of your bank account right away. So, immediate purchases media taken out of your bank. Credit cards are different, it's building your credit it's associated to your credit spending. So you're going to use a credit card and you need to pay them off every month, that is the goal.
Now, I'm a huge fan of credit cards because of all the point systems are you kidding. I've been in American Express. I have Mastercard. I have Visa however you name them, I have them all and a lot of them have a variety of points and you can build up your points. You can travel on them. You can buy things with them. Some of have, "Hey, you spend a dollar you get four points", now don't take that lightly. I can promise you as a corporate owner of many companies they are valuable and they are exchangeable for cash. So, credit cards are call it an asset to your portfolio of wealth.
Now, unfortunately Suzy Orman, Dave Ramsey, Dave Bach and a lot of financial institutes have been I'm gonna say lying to you. Telling you that you can't do anything. In fact, I watched a video of one of theirs recently that said, "You cannot buy a house unless you're out of debt", well, bs you can too and in fact, you're gonna go into hundreds of thousands of dollars of debt by buying a house. So you're gonna have to have good credit. You're gonna have to get leverage. So the misunderstanding about it, I get it it's confusing. But let me clarify. So you have debit cards and you have credit cards and you need them. When I teach your children because I'm going to teach your kids like 13 years old you get your kids minimum by then minimum this is like latest in life. They should have an atm or a debit card get you know connected so they know how to use an atm and that's associated to the money they make and you start doing that and then by 14-15 you either start letting them use your credit card. My daughter's 14 she's been using my credit card now for years in very very strategic rules. So the credit card builds your corporate credit.
So, small amounts of money in small purchases and you pay them off. Now, here is the big news. So, get a piece of paper and write it down. Let's just say you have four credit cards and no one teaches this it drives me crazy. So since they have four credit cards you should never pay them off once a month at the same day. You should take credit card number one and pay it off in the first week then you're going to start using it again. See, what the financial systems want.
They want to see your use of making and spending money. If you're not active in your flat we call it a very thin credit profile you're not going to get money from anyone. Like, no one's going to borrow you money. Because it doesn't even show you have any responsibility to spend it. So I'm a huge fan of using it and paying it off properly. So, credit card number one you're gonna pay it off during the first-week. Credit card number two you paid off in the second week. Credit card number three. So, each time you're going to continue to be spending so only that one card in that one week will be paid off and then fourth week you pay off that one and then you keep a cycle. So, that's going to increase your credit profile number one and it's okay to have debt. Here's what debt is. Debt is the cost of money.
Alright, so let's think about that. Well, if you can get zero percent credit cards last I checked that's free. Now, even if you get one or two percent that's still really cheap money. Right now, mortgages are insanely cheap you can get them for two or three percent. That's like really cheap money. So if you can get money and it's like a home mortgage for example or even a car loan. Car loans are like 1.6 sometimes like free for four years that's like again free money. So, why would you pay off to get out of debt? Say you have a house that's four hundred thousand dollars. Why? When it's only say two percent money. Would you take four hundred thousand and pay off your house. Now, maybe put a hundred hundred fifty two hundred max into the house take the other two hundred invest it at 10, 12, 15, 20, 40, percent.
So if you have $200,000 invested at 12% that's $24,000 a year that's 2,000 a month. Wouldn't you rather have the $2,000 a month in new cash flow to pay towards other home expenses or home improvements or invest it even better into new things. So, again the cycle of debt is critical and that credit cards are a necessity do not cut them up as you've been told by some ridiculous people. You need them use them responsibly and respectively. Now, that's the basics between credit and debit and how to use and pay off your card. So now, let's go to the next level. Let's go to how do you leverage it? So, there's companies that I'm associated with and like you could even call your company and work on getting a zero percent credit card.
Now, why is that so important? Well, I'll give you a story about a client of mine who used and I helped him get over $150,000 of zero percent credit cards. Now, we did it in a very specific time frame in a very specific order and he has that money to use for years it's zero percent. Now, prior to this because he's a flipper right meaning fix and flip right on rehabs of houses he would borrow money from hard money lenders which that would be me. Well, I'm expensive. I'm between 12 and 15 percent that you're gonna pay and some points. So, I'm really expensive money. So why would you use me as a hard money lender when I can show you how to use 150,000 whatever you qualify for free.
Now, it's the responsibility factor that a lot of people get freaked out about. So, don't freak out about it like think about it he went out and bought a house for a rehab and then he used these cards home depot, meeks, slows, whoever he needed to he could even pay plumbers and painters and different vendors with those credit cards. So, he went and bought a house he put 78,000 of rehab in zero percent credit cards, sold the house, paid off all the cards, instantly increased his credit and then went again and then went again.
So he was getting down to be able to flip like three houses in a year with free money. If you had to pay me or a hard money lender 10, 12, 15, 17, points that's a lot of profit that's being taken out. Now, other stories and other ways to use credit cards and use them so responsibly. Let's just talk about your business. You need to get incorporated that's going to cost a little money. You're probably going to need a trust. You might need a database if you don't have one. You're going to need websites. You're going to need videography, photography, you're going to have to hire some people.
So another way to use credit cards to get started and again it's not costing you anything to do it it's just going through a process to help you get money using it and spending it right is the key and I can tell you it was so many people. Like, that the guy in real estate I was just telling about the flipper he's become a multi-millionaire doing this and that is all starting with no money but the use of credit cards to create wealth. So again, the language and the way you think about debt has got to shift. Let's talk about one more thing which is critical your friends and family. So, the people you surround yourself with are either going to support you in this journey or absolutely make fun of you and so on the comments below right now are like do people even know that you're into this or wanting to know about it. I remember like because I grew up on a farm in Nebraska when I started like on my way to become a millionaire it's like, "What are you doing? What are you doing? You can't buy real estate.
You don't even know what you're going to do. You're going to lose it. You're going to get hurt." If these are the comments that you have with your friends and family stop talking to them. You just don't have to convince anybody to do this you decide that you want this. Because you deserve it for you and your family. Comment below on how you are going to like use cards.
