Financial freedom is a goal that some have found to be quite elusive. Some experts will tell you you have to adhere to a very tight budget in order to get it, and others will tell you you have to build a big business. Nick Vertucci found out that financial freedom can be found in real estate if you learn it the way you should. Even if you have no background or formal education in finance or real estate brokering, it can be done, and Vertucci did so by continuing to learn along the way and adapting his investment strategy.
Nick Vertucci has quite a personal story to tell to those who feel financial freedom is a hopeless dream. He came from a family that lived in poverty and at one point found himself homeless. He did climb out of poverty once when he started his own business. For a time, Nick Vertucci thought he had found his key to wealth and even became a homeowner, husband and father. But his business was not able to survive the market recession of 2000, and he lost all his savings and assets that were tied up in that business. Vertucci nearly lost his home, but it was his discovery of real estate at a weekend event that saved it.
Nick Vertucci spent the next 10 years figuring out ways to buy properties, and bringing some of them from slums to upper level housing. He didn’t get rich overnight, but as he started better understanding the markets and becoming more familiar with all the methods of real estate investing, he started seeing his income move up. Vertucci reached seven figures and now lives free of debt and is considered retired, though he is very active at his NV Real Estate Academy. This academy exists to help people who are looking for a better investment strategy, a career change or who may even be where Vertucci once was to learn the tricks of the trade for property development.
GreenSKy Shows Off Impressive Q2 Performance Numbers
Publicly traded companies that can find their fortunes rise or fall with every quarterly report. For one FinTech company, their recent second quarter report has raised eyebrows and gained more fans on Wall Street. That company, GreenSky Credit, is continuing its winning streak with its strong earnings performance.
According to a recent article in Forbes, GreenSky Credit released an impressive second quarter performance earnings report that makes the company’s stock look undervalued. In addition to the strong earnings numbers, the company recently announced a strategic partnership with American Express. This marketing partnership will expose the FinTech company to the credit card giant’s large customer base of small business merchants.
So what does GreenSky Credit do? The company offers point-of-sale loans for merchants such as medical clinics, home contractors and solar panel installers. These quick loans help merchants get more big ticket sales and raise their overall revenue. Here is an example: A solar panel installer shows a $20,000 estimate to a homeowner. The home owner may not have that kind of money on hand. The merchant can then pull out the GreenSky loan app on his device. The home owner can receive a loan decision in minutes. As a result, the merchant now has a much better chance of closing the sale.
Currently, the FinTech company has 19,000 merchants as well as retailers like Home Depot on their point-of-sale loan platform. GreenSky Credit has seen a 50% year-over-year growth over the past three years. The company is projected to have 30,000 merchants on their platform by 2020. Currently, the company is one of the largest point-of-sale FinTech companies on the planet.
Founded in 2007 by their current CEO David Zalik. The Atlanta-based company currently has 900 full time employees. Since 2012, the company has help broker over $5 billion dollars in loans. These loans are facilitated by a number of financial institutions including FifthThird Bank and Regions Bank. As the company continues to grow, GreenSky Credit will seek to innovate the point-of-sale loan space.
Equities First Holdings is in the news again for making a significant milestone. The firm has been granted permission to engage in Repurchase Transactions popularly known as Repos. This permission was issued by the Dubai Financial market early this year. This will make Equities First Holdings on of the pioneer firm to engage in this form of business in the region. However, the firm will provide these services in accordance with the various rules and regulations provided by the Securities and Commodity Authority in the nation. Perhaps this will make it enter into the highly lucrative market of the securities market. The area has not witnessed a lot of growth, especially in the Arab and developing nations due to the complexities involved in both the selling and buying of the securities. However, Equities First Holdings is an innovative firm, and this will just be a walk in the park. The deal is expected to assist it in cementing its place in these regions.

Do you know what Freedom Checks are and what they could mean for your retirement? Chances are, you have heard of them before and maybe you have even seen the video by Matt Badiali that seems to be all over the internet. While his claims may seem like they can’t possibly be real, investors are already seeing returns on their investments in natural resources.You may be asking why Matt Badiali is an authority of Checks and the natural resources you would be investing in and the answer is his extensive background in geology. He has had over 2 decades of experience in the business field and multiple degrees in the field. Instead of just heading to the internet and reading whatever data other people have published about the companies he is considering recommending and even investing in himself, he goes straight to the source himself to see how things are really operating.
Many people are concerned about the future of Social Security and are wondering if it will even be there for them when they retire. They want to know what they can do to help ensure that their retirement will be spent comfortably and Freedom Checks might be the answer. The companies Matt Badiali recommends investing in are participating in a government program that is directed towards natural resource companies. They must make almost all of their revenue from domestic natural resources and then pay a considerable amount of their Checks investment profits to investors as dividends.
In order to start receiving your quarterly and in some cases even monthly Freedom Checks, you can start with an investment as small as $10. While this investment won’t pay out nearly as much as a larger investment, it’s a good way to get started and see if this type of investment is right for you. The tax rates that you will be paying on the revenue will also be lower than some other investments that some decide to make for their retirement because of the program that it is part of. All investments will come with a degree of risk but the oil industry is booming and it might be a good investment opportunity to jump in.
