Source for Success: It Starts with YOU

This week, Attorney Michael Brette, Founder of Small-Cap Equity Advisors and author of Raising Capital for Your Business, discusses how to be your own source for success and make money without savings. We learn that saving money does not always work because most people simply don’t make enough money to set aside what’s needed for retirement. 

We learn how to build wealth by finding an idea that turns into a company then issues stock.  Or we learn how you can take control of your financial future by offering services in exchange for equity in just such a company. We also learn where to find small-cap companies and start-ups and why you should operate as a corporation or limited liability company. 

“The phrase ‘you need to have money work for you rather than you work for money’ really is the case.” - Attorney Michael Brette 

This week on Business Pulse Talk Radio: 

  • Shocking figures highlighting why saving for retirement often doesn't work.
  • How to amass wealth by finding an idea that turns into a company that issues stock.
  • How to create, manage, and grow your financial future on your terms.
  • Offering a service in exchange for equity in a company.
  • Where to find opportunities to invest and be your source for success.
  • How to find small-cap companies and start-ups.
  • Why you should operate as a corporation or limited liability company.
