The Day I Met Alexis Assadi
This morning I set myself on a task. I was going to find my moneymaker. Now, I don’t know how you just interpreted ‘moneymaker’ in your head, but let me assure you, I mean ‘moneymaker’ as in the perfect investment or set of investments, alternative or stock, that will offer me a lifetime of wealth, passive income as far as the eye can see, and my butt on the beach sipping Mai Tai’s. However, first, I scour the internet in search of a light, a voice that will teach me the ways of investing.
Alexis Assadi’s Blog of Lies
As sure as the heavenly light broke through cloudy skies, an angel appeared in the form of a younger, but older looking gentlemen who smoked cigars and wore many pinks. Mr, Alexis Assad and his blog titled: How To Build Passive Income and Become Financially Free. Alexis Assadi had created the first and last stop on my journey through internet investing knowledge. I can feel it.
I decided to read the About Me section quickly before jumping into his blog. I learn a little about his swanky global childhood, his tortured education, first professional moves, his lucky breaks through his 20’s, and the culmination of his career at the age of 26 when he was able to pay his electricity bill without having to go to the office everyday like me. I guess once he reached the pinnacle of his career (paying his bills. Ha.), he decided to retire, start writing a blog, and ‘educate’ people on the ways of investing.
A True Scam Artist
The youth startled me. I haven’t known anyone in their 20’s with enough knowledge to impart that they gave up working day in and out on the skills that they felt so strongly about gifting the world. However, I wanted to give his blog a read to see if this youngster did know all about that which he was talking.
As I searched the pages at random, the first title I came across was Last Year I Made 7 Predictions for 2016. Here’s How I Did. He did not do well. To quote the article “I got 3.5 out of 7 predictions correct, or 50%. That may not be very good, but it’s still better than what I averaged in high school math!” His predictions concerning the state of the world in 2016 were relatively obvious and all wrong. So, I am supposed to take advice about MY MONEY from a man who did not do well in Math in school.
Telling More Lies
I skipped to a different page, and a new title caught my eye. How To Get Rich Fast. I got a little more excited being that this article was perhaps the piece of advice that would change my life forever. I read on (to the video transcription) and quickly realized that everything that he was saying was not new or news to me. I had built businesses that I tried to leverage, I had created companies that successfully employed others, but none of these worked for me, and neither did Alexis Assadi or his advice to get rich quickly. Five years, he says, is what it takes to build and sell a business and use that income to invest into moneymakers. Well, there’s another blogging attempt down the drain for Alexis Assadi.
Then without getting too much further, there was another gem of an article titled: Yes, Getting Rich Involves Getting Lucky,
“This article will give an honest, yet probably uncomfortable, assessment about the role of luck in wealth-accumulation.”
– Alexis Assadi
In other words, LUCK plays a considerable part in investing success, and if you do not own this LUCK naturally, then there is nothing Alexis Assadi can do to help you.
My search for the key to investing gold was not getting any better. Now it’s going to take five years to get rich and, with the luck I’ve wielded lately, I will undoubtedly fall short of where I need to go per Assadi standards.
My trip through Alexis Assadi’s blog to financial freedom (or so he says) just kept getting worse when I stumbled upon My Dumbest Purchase (and Why It Doesn’t Matter Anymore). Here, Alexis tells the story of going to dinner with a buddy, getting wasted, then flaunting that he can afford to buy an $8,000 ring (with the credit or no), A ring, he goes on to tell us, he no longer wears anymore. Well, I entered the Alexis Assadi blog ready to find my pathway to financial freedom and all I want to do is steal the $8,000 ring that the rich bastard bought and doesn’t wear and clock him in the side of the head with it. Passive enough for you, Alexis! Stop flaunting your wealth in front of our faces for your enjoyment!
After seeing the ego on this guy, I knew I would not find an ounce of smart investing advice here. Time to go.
On my way out of Alexis Assadi’s Fun Home of Terrible Investment Advice, my eyes accidentally stopped when they caught an article titled Why I Don’t Recommend Specific Investments. I should have never allowed my vision to linger so long, but the article sub-headers of this blog post were horrifying enough that it halted me in my tracks. Take a look.
Below, are the reasons why Alexis Assadi does not recommend specific investments to the followers of his blog:
