Hey everyone.  Happy September!

I just did an amazing interview with remarkable man and entrepreneur named Brandon Steiner.

Brandon, has a new book coming out called You Gotta Have Balls: How a Kid from Brooklyn Started From Scratch, Bought Yankee Stadium, and Created a Sports Empire

Brandon Steiner – David Bach Interview by David Bach- FinishRich

The book is fantastic.  I read it cover to cover in about three hours and loved it.  While the title sounds funny, it’s not what you may be thinking.  It’s actually about how to pursue your dreams, recover from adversity—and raise children with strong values that will benefit them for life!  It really moved me as a parent.

Brandon, owns a company called Steiner Sports Marketing & Memorabilia, Inc., one of the largest sports memorabilia companies in the world.

Last year, he made my dream come true—when he took my son Jack on a tour of Yankee Stadium, and had “second base” hand delivered to his seat at the seventh inning of the game!  This was Jack’s first time at Yankee Stadium, needless to say—not your normal first experience at a baseball game.  He’s one lucky kid, and I am one lucky daddy!

This interview is one of the best I think I have done in a year—and it’s my gift to you for being a member of the FinishRich Community!  Enjoy and please share your comments on how you liked it.

Oh…and if you haven’t “liked” me yet on Facebook—come join me (we just went over 25,000 “likes”—would love to see you there)!

If I’m going to bet on a business, let me be the one who owns it

Let’s get straight to the point—creating a second stream of income can change your life.  If all you did was spend less and save more, you could probably start late and finish rich. But if you spend less, save more, and MAKE more, nothing will stop you from achieving your goal of financial freedom. And if you ALSO develop a second income stream, you can finish even richer than you might have if you’d started early.

The Four Rules For Getting Started

Most home-based businesses never get off the ground because most people get mired in minutia. They don’t realize there are really only three rules to follow to start a home-based business

  1. Ready
  2. Aim
  3. Fire

Okay, I’m kidding.  There are actually four rules you need to follow.

Rule No. 1 Make The Decision

Rule No. 1 is to make the decision you are ready to start a business at home. Find a spot in your house. Pick a day on your calendar and get started. Read books on how to start a business and do research, checking resources available on the Internet. But get started. A cause set in motion begets results.

Rule No. 2 Pick A Field

Don’t spend years trying to find just the “right business” for yourself; don’t worry if it you don’t get it right the first time. You’re not signing up for life and you’re not giving up your day job (yet).  Just pick something that gets you excited and get going.

Rule No. 3 Get Help

Considering how many resources there are out there to help you, it’s silly to try and go it alone. You’re not even close to being the first person to start a new business at home—more than 20 million Americans have gone before you—so take advantage of their experience.

Rule No. 4 Make It Legal

Although you don’t need a lot of “stuff” to start a business, you do need to make it legal. To keep the IRS off your back, you will need to set up a legal structure for your business by choosing from three structures: sole proprietorship, partnership, and corporation. For more information on the subject, go to the IRS web site at www.irs.gov and request publication #334, “Tax Guide for Small Businesses.” If you are selling retail products, you will more than likely need a State Tax Resale Number.

If you could start your own business what would it be? Write it down, make it real!

Live Rich,

How to Build a Career Without Going Broke

Do you have a dream of owning your own business? Do you have an idea that you know could work if only you had the time? If so, you need to read the interview I just did with Forbes on “How to Build a Career Without Going Broke.” I was asked 5 questions on how I successfully took FinishRich Media from a dream to a multi-million dollar company, that now helps millions of people around the world. More importantly, I shared how YOU can make your business dream a reality too! You will also learn:
