Smart Asset Opportunities, with Ross Stryker
Ross Stryker, CEO of Smart Asset Opportunities, is the poster child for taking control of your life and financial destiny. In fact, just 4 years after he made a shift from typical thinking to investing in cash-flowing assets, he achieved financial freedom. He was liberated by the power of his choices. His key decisions to direct his mindset and investing strategy are what made all the difference for him. His story proves that financial freedom is possible for you too.
Ross Stryker models the way and offers a hand up to anyone who would like to follow. He’s now helping others create financial freedom through alternative investments, real estate, and cash flow.
Where Mindset and Investing Fit into the Cash Flow System
We often talk about mindset. Every action you take has its roots in your thinking. Therefore, your mindset is the initiation, hinge, and critical entry point to building time and money freedom.
But you don’t build something great just with your mind. You must take action towards your goal.
Finding the right investments is one of those action steps. It’s how you create financial freedom with cash flow from assets.
As you can see, both your mindset and your investing strategy are just two steps in the bigger journey to time and money freedom.
Our 3-step Entrepreneur’s Cash Flow System first helps you keep more of the money you make. From cultivating the right mindset to strategic moves in tax planning, debt restructuring, cash flow awareness, and restructuring your savings to where you can access it as an emergency/opportunity fund, this step frees up and increases your cash flow, so you have more to invest.
Then, you’ll protect your money with insurance and legal protection, and Privatized Banking.
Finally, you’ll put your money to work and get it to make more by investing in cash-flowing assets. This empowers you to build time and money freedom and leave a rich legacy.
Who Is Ross Stryker, of Smart Asset Opportunities?
After 12 years serving in the military and over 20 years running a successful private practice, Ross Stryker realized if he didn’t alter his course, he’d be trading hours for dollars forever. It was this belief that led him to launch Smart Asset Opportunities.
He’s been involved in projects totaling over $100 million and owns 40+ single family homes, 14 ATM’s, a coffee farm in Panama, apartment complexes, office parks, storage units, and ownership in a Belizean resort. Ross is living proof that your money is better off of Wall Street, and that you can achieve financial freedom.
Just four years after his “awakening,” Ross’s investments and passive real estate income streams have surpassed his former transactional income (i.e., hours for dollars). With over $2.5 million out in total commercial project loans, Ross has an eye for tangible assets that have a proven tax advantage, high returns, and allow for stable, continuous cash flow.
Ross shares his wealth of real estate knowledge in a weekly blog and in his two books, including The Ultimate Freedom Prescription: Secrets from 14 Doctors … How They Created Generational Wealth in Less Than 5 Years.
To be an SAO investor is to understand your “why,” beyond extra zeros in your bank account. For Ross, it’s sharing everything he knows, so that others may find their own financial success and freedom. When he’s not working in real estate deals, you might find him boating with Robert Kiyosaki, better known as Rich Dad Poor Dad.
The Definition of Accredited Investor
Most of the investments offered to the Smart Asset Opportunity community are for accredited investors only.
If you do not know what accredited means, here’s a quick definition.
An accredited investor has at least $1 Million of net worth, not including the value of their home, or is making at least $200K if single, or $300K if married.
Most of our listeners fall into this category and are actively looking for ways to put their cash to work earning a return most productively.
