Have you ever wondered how people end up in Forbes? Many people have profitable businesses but why only few make it to billions? Some of them inherit money but do they receive those billions in cash? Are there people in the list who just get huge salaries or bonuses? 

When you actually read profiles of billionaires you might find something in common. 

Jeff Bezos “...16% stake at Amazon”
Elon Musk “...owns 21% of Tesla”
Larry Ellison “..cofounder of software giant Oracle, of which he owns about 35%”

No matter the business, age, country, all of them have a stake at the publicly traded company. And that’s the source of their immense wealth. That’s the step from just making millions to becoming a billionaire.

Let me clarify it. What limits the earnings of an employee? The number of hours he or she can work. And the ceiling is fixed — it’s just 24 h. Can you make a fortune by working for someone? Millions? Possible. Billions? I doubt that.

What limits the business? The demand. What is the ceiling for demand? The population of the whole planet. And since the beginning of the market there hasn’t been a company which would expand to the extent of the whole planet. Not even Coca-Cola. Basically, this limit is infinite and there is always room for growth. So the only way to become really rich is by having a company. 

Here’s the trick. Having a company doesn’t necessarily mean starting one. You can become the owner of the company by buying its shares. Then you will own a fraction of the company equal to the number of stocks you have. If the company is growing, your capital is growing too. 

So, in a way, you can skip one stage in Kiyosaki’s quadrant. A simple sequence of roles one needs to undergo to gain financial freedom: Employee -> Self-employed -> Businessman -> Investor.

Thanks to the development of IT technologies, practically anyone with a smartphone can become an investor, make money work for them and grow capital together with the richest people in the world. 

Let’s begin this journey together. 

Step by step I will explain to you how this mysterious world works. But before we start building your strategy, let’s check your intuition. Think about any 3 companies and check how much their stock costs at Gainy.app. 

Remember or write it down because in 2 days we will compare their performance with the broad market and see who wins. 

Bye, 
and welcome to the Investors Club!

because I want to check what my friend has just sent me
The company developed and maintains technological products and services, namely Snapchat, Spectacles, and Bitmoji. Snapchat is the third most popular app among millennials and gets high profits from ads on the platform. Since TikTok is not available to invest in yet, Facebook is boring, we see Snap as a good choice to diversify your portfolio. We don’t know what keeps those kids so glued to screens in Snapchat but if companies profit from it, we can get a share thanks to investing in their stocks.
because xBox brings us together with friends
Microsoft is the second biggest company on the market in terms of capitalization. Xbox, Skype, Windows Office 365 are all part of Microsoft business as well as it develops, licenses, and supports a wide range of software products and services, as well as designs and sells hardware. The company’s future is as bright as it’s past with all the money the company invests in disruptive tools like AI. Next time you plan to buy another game for the Xbox console, you might also consider buying a Microsoft stock which is not very expensive.
because we want schools to be cooler
So we packed peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for the kids, now it’s time to go to school. The K12 Inc. is an educational technology company. The company offers a private education program, software and education services built to teach online for preschool students up to grade 12 or K-12. The company’s earnings soared up after the pandemic because we came to realise that online learning is not far in the future and may continue the trend.
because we like to treat our pets and ourselves, too
The American manufacturer of supermarket food JM Smucker Co also operates a pet food business including brands such as Milk-Bone and Meow Mix. It’s also the producer of the peanut butter JIF, kid’s all-time favorite filling. The company offers a 2.96% dividend yield and in the third quarter reported a 7% increase in net sales.
because we love playing games
If there is one game to teach you financial literacy - it’s Monopoly, which belongs to Hasbro, as well as unparalleled portfolio of approximately 1,500 brands including MAGIC: THE GATHERING, NERF, MY LITTLE PONY, TRANSFORMERS, PLAY-DOH, BABY ALIVE, DUNGEONS & DRAGONS, POWER RANGERS, PEPPA PIG and PJ MASKS, as well as premier partner brands. The company generates strong cash flows and pays regular dividends. The company’s business moves along the online trend and develops digital content in the form of TV shows, films, computer games.
because everyone has a favorite childhood hero
Disney is a widely diversified company which owns everything from toys to apparel, and books to video games: Disney Parks, ESPN channel, Pixar, Hulu and so much more. And now it bets on streaming services with Disney+ and threatens Netflix’s market share. The company revenue suffered a major drop last year due to closure of Disneylands, but has opened them in October and foresees a strong comeback.
