Why “It Doesn’t Take Money To Make Money”, According To Social Media Star Ken Mack

Published

“It takes money to make money” – fact or fiction? We put the question to investor Ken Mack, and he tells us that this phrase is “total rubbish!”. Ken, who comes from humble beginnings, was born in the UK, in the country of Scotland. He now resides in multiple locations around the world, and is currently based in Dubai. The self made millionaire tells us how he started his journey 16 years ago. As he had no money to start with, he needed to find a creative way to create wealth without using any of his own money, simply because he didn’t have any. His quest for wealth led him to discover a strategy known as a leveraged buyout. 

A leveraged buyout is a strategy in which you can buy an existing successful business using other people’s money. One such example of a leveraged buyout is utilizing “seller finance” or “deferred consideration” to buy a profitable business. This is where you can agree a price to buy a business from the business owner and rather than paying up front, you can pay the seller over a set period of time by using the cash flow which the business generates. This effectively allows you to buy businesses without using any of your own money. This is the exact strategy that Mack used to create his wealth. 

Ken tells us “it doesn’t take money to buy a business, it takes strategy. Similarly it doesn’t take money to buy real estate, it takes strategy. For example, in Spain you can get a 113% mortgage which means that they [the bank] will pay you to borrow money. And again no deposit is required and the bank will even pay your buying fees.” Ken went on to give us several other strategies for wealth creation such as “rent to rent”. 

We asked Ken if having a mentor is essential for creating wealth. He told us that he cannot say it is essential as he did not have a mentor himself, when he started. However, “the kind of person who says that it takes money to make money, typically has a victim type mentality and they are the ones who could benefit from a mentor the most. Having a mentor will expedite your success and send you light years ahead”, according to Mack. 

Ken Mack now dedicates his time to coaching others to create wealth and he is aggressively working towards becoming “the greatest generational wealth coach of all time”. He tells us that he hopes to achieve this by sharing his real life experiences with normal people who can benefit from them and he believes that anyone can create generational wealth, just like him. As far as the phrase “It takes money to make money” goes, Ken leaves us in no doubt that in his opinion, this is most definitely not the case!

How Cecilia And Shane Grizzard Tapped Into The Potential Of The Online Space

Published

on

Sometimes, people forget or are unable to claim packages from e-commerce platforms like Amazon, Target, or Walmart. Fortunately, these items don’t always go to waste, as people claim them as mystery packages that they open in hopes of finding something valuable. 

While the packages aren’t always what they seem to be, the people who acquire them find different opportunities to monetize them. Influencers even film themselves as they open the packages and guess their contents. 

Cecilia and Shane Grizzard were also interested in mystery boxes, but not for the reasons mentioned. They saw an opportunity to profit from them by tapping into the e-commerce industry. 

Growing In Numbers 

“Shane and I started our e-commerce career with liquidation pallets such as Target, Walmart, Amazon mystery boxes, etc. Then, we started buying truckloads of inventory from target overstocks such as baby items and furniture,” Cecilia said.  

Cecilia realized she wanted to enter the e-commerce industry after seeing that only a few people shop in stores, and the online shopping market is gaining popularity. She also wanted to relax a little from her travel job and run a business from home. 

After an interested customer bought an item from the couple, they created a group page on Facebook and started listing on the Facebook marketplace. Cecilia and Shane then shared their group page and got noticed by other consumers. 

The pair later decided to venture out and started on eBay. In just seven months, they made $75,000 in sales. Cecilia later told Shane to begin selling on Amazon, where they made $55,000 in sales in just one month, with $35,000 in profit. After seven months, the couple earned $140,000 in sales, with $75,000 in profit. 

“The more I share it on my Instagram, the more I get noticed. I was having people ask me for help constantly, which made me start my automation service, CS’ E-commerce,” Cecilia said. 

Starting An Automation Service 

Once the couple’s e-commerce business took off, and Cecilia shared more about it on her Instagram account, more people noticed their success and began asking for help in their e-commerce business. 

Seeing this as another opportunity to exercise her entrepreneurial skills, Cecilia started her automation service, CS’ E-commerce. 

“It takes capital to do $55,000 in sales with a $35,000 profit, but not a lot of people do that in e-commerce. That’s, sometimes someone’s yearly salary at a 9-5 job. I know I can change someone’s life with the automation services I offer,” Cecilia said.
