Rabbi, how can we define financial freedom in general terms?

Although not so common, financial freedom is when your independent earnings (salary does not count, as it is a dependent gain) pay your living expenses. In other words, having rent income generated, for example, is an independent gain and the idea is that you have enough to cover your monthly costs.

What pillars are needed to have that freedom?

Achieving financial freedom requires three basic pillars: 1. Getting rid of debt (credit card, overdraft, loans from family and friends, etc.). 2. Manage the emotional as well as the financial, that is, lower living costs in order to save and stop treating money as something more than it is - just a tool. 3. Increase the value you bring to the market, add value to people (starting a company, patent something, create a product, have a difference even in your job. Bring value to where you are, so your earnings will increase).

How to have emotional balance in a world that demands high performance 24 hours a day, 7 days a week?

There is something I always heard at school as a child: "first, count to ten". Then, set your values and priorities and follow them!

What would it be to manage money strategically?

Don't spend more than you earn! Do not install, in fact, nor use the credit card with something that is an expense! Tip I've always heard, but I didn't understand until when I started doing the same: pay you first! It means that when you make a profit, pay yourself first before you pay for the rest (this includes debt, I teach people to pay off their debt in 12 months!).

What are the main failures that people make in this strategy?

People treat money like a trophy to be shown, so they usually spend what they don't have and, even worse, create an emotional dependence on money.

Where does the purpose enter into this scenario?

Well, nobody lives without money! No one can do anything for themselves, or for others, unless they have the money they will use to achieve the purpose. It is important to remember that having a lot of money is not a purpose, but it is a means to achieve it.

At what point did this call to that purpose happen in your life?

Since I was a teenager, I was fascinated with entrepreneurship and personal growth. I read a lot, all the books I read were mostly motivational, which provided a lot of encouragement and momentum, but few really provided answers or an action plan! So, you end up creating an animated donkey, as I call them and I was one too. So, I realized that it is not enough for people to have just the courage, if it were just that, many would be fine, but what I provide for people is a call to action, I call it the ABC Plan (Pluck the Bunda da Chair) .

Does the call for a particular purpose differ from person to person or are their concepts the same?

Each of us has come to fulfill a unique, special mission, and only you can fulfill it. Each of the 7 billion people on Earth has an individual mission to benefit the world and make a mark in history!

Why don't people (in many cases) realize that they are co-creators of their reality?

Good question! We are living in a world where we were raised from childhood to be maneuvered and maneuvered. You don't see entrepreneurship classes in schools, or any incentive from Government so that a generation of productive people can grow, but generations of good employees and employees, who must live life to pay the bills and try to get out of the red… This is not what we came into the world for. That's what I discussed in the book, I speak in my lectures and I teach people all over Brazil.

What is wealth for you?

Fulfill your mission as a human being, father, husband, leader exemplary and inspiration for people to evolve.

I would like you to talk a little about the book “The Secret of Jewish Prosperity”.

O book it came after years of experience and living the teachings that I pass on to readers in practice. I formulated some recipes and concepts to achieve prosperity, which not only refer to money, but a balance of the three pillars of prosperity: physical and emotional; and fulfill its purpose. The book, in the second part, calls the reader to act, to put attitudes and motivation for action, because without it, as I said, the person becomes an excited donkey. The book is a result of my experiences and with thousands, if not millions of people, both Jews and others who apply these concepts.
