Rob starts the video clip by introducing the book The Wealthy Code by George Antone. Specifically, he covers the three levels of affluence it covers, relative to financial independence. Each level (Rich, Wealthy, Job) centers around businesses. Rich Dad, Poor Dad author Robert Kiyosaki defines a business as an entity that can operate independently if you, the owner, were physically absent for a year. If that statement isn’t true for you, you have a job, and can’t be financially independent. A job requires your time and attention for a minimum of ten hours per week.

If wealth building is your goal, then you must develop passive income. Anyone with a job that pays above their means can start small, investing that extra money into investments that appreciate in value. Eventually, those properties will generate cash flow. Cash flow is wealth. Learning that fact and amassing the knowledge on how to properly redirect those funds was a game changer for Rob Rowsell.

When Rob first started his house flipping business, he was not setting himself up for regular passive income. A mentor advised him to keep every third or fourth property and collect rent from the tenants, rather than selling it. This meant that he could gradually decrease the work hours he invested in his real estate business. Over time, that business became less of a job, and more of a passive income engine.

Best Wealth Building Books – Money: Master the Game

Next, Rob shares a page from Tony Robbins’ book Money – Master the Game. This is one of the best wealth building books, cited by countless successful investors. The page features an illustration of a mountain, outlining a wealth journey. The peak of the mountain, labeled “Critical Mass”, represents the point where we retire. As we climb the mountain, we are accumulating money for our retirement. The de-cumulation phase occurs on our way down from the peak.

The “Nest Egg Theory” says we should have a big enough bag of money saved up to last us the rest of our lives when we retire. However, life happens. The nest egg may not last us the rest of our lives. We may have to work another job in our golden years in order to make ends meet. Ideally, we have a passive income stream instead that ensures that we make it through.
