How different would your life be if you had realized the power of putting your money to work for you at the age of 11?
Joshua Hayward is a remarkable person for many reasons and starting his investment journey when he was 11 is just one of them.
Joshua had a family friend that was a stockbroker. When he tried to explain to Joshua exactly what he did, Joshua took away that he could “make money by not doing anything.”
Inspired, he started saving the money he earned mowing lawns and shoveling snow. Unlike others his age, he didn’t spend it on video games, time with friends or comic books. He started investing that money in $100 and $200 increments.
That’s an incredible amount of motivation at an age when most kids are more concerned with fun than compound interest.
Chasing His Tail
At age 21, Joshua began attending personal development seminars. This is where he realized his true passion: helping others use their time and money more efficiently so they can live the life they dream about. He knew he had discovered something life-changing, and he wanted to share that message with the world.
Unfortunately, that’s when he made a disastrous mistake. Rather than creating a business designed around his life, he created two full-time jobs doing almost 100 live events a year. (I’m exhausted even thinking about it!)
Joshua finally acknowledged he was chasing his tail and burning out trying to be everything to everyone. He took a much-needed step back. Then he decided to close his business.
Going forward, Joshua took very specific steps to create the life he truly wanted, and you can follow his example to transform your future.
