The Benefit of Being Lazy ( and Truly Rich too)

For many many years, I’ve been telling my family and friends that I work very hard because I am lazy. Since my work week sometimes consists of 100 work hours (when I was much younger), of course they’d think I’m pulling their leg.  Or maybe they’d think I was joking.  Even crazy.

Its true!  I work and think hard so that the next time I need to do the same thing, it will be easier, and simpler.  I work hard so that I can put a process in place.  I work hard so that I can delegate the work.  I work hard so others learn to do it for me.  So that in the long run, I don’t have to do as much work.  Lazy, right?

The part I like best is that after I work hard, then I can be lazy at work, then have some extra time to do the things I love to do. Like think some more.  And go on vacation ( I am writing this while on vacation in Genting Highlands in Malaysia )

And then I can work hard having fun doing these things I love to do.

In his latest book How to Turn Your Passion Into Profit (8 Keys to Build a Truly Rich Business), co-authored with Dean Pax Lapid, our “Captain AbundanceBo Sanchez articulates this idea better ( well, I am a novice writer, and he is a best selling author ), and I quote

The Benefits of Being Lazy
by Bo Sanchez

People ask me, “Bo, you don’t seem to run out of big ideas. You’re always producing new products, new organizations. ministries. Where do they all come from?”

They all come from thinking ( that work again )

Because I focus on my magic 20 percent, I have extra time to read, to imagine, to day dream, to think….

And there lies the birthplace for new ideas — new ways to serve people, new ways to improve my businesses, and new ways to earn money.

If you don’t have time to think, to read, to study, to day dream, where will your next big idea come from?

May your dreams come true,

Bo Sanchez

Bo Sanchez : Preacher, Writer, Showbiz Personality, Entrepreneur and Mentor

I joined TrulyRichClub in mid 2012, because I was curious about the Stock Market advise.  But after I downloaded and listened to my first PowerTalk by Bo Sanchez, I knew my life would change.  Who is Bo Sanchez?

Bo Sanchez ( Captain Abundance ) started preaching at the age of 13 and wrote his first book at the age of 20. He is the publisher and main writer of Kerygma, the number one inspirational magazine in the country. Today, he continues to preach to millions worldwide. And for years now, his inspirational books have not left the top 10 list of bestselling books of the country.

Privately, Bo is also a micro-entrepreneur. He engages in small businesses not only for his family’s needs and for his various projects, but also from his firm belief that one of the most important solutions to his country’s economic problems is to raise more micro-entrepreneurs among his countrymen. He frequently teaches and writes about financial literacy, believing that our poverty is hugely a product of people’s very low financial I.Q. on subjects such as debt management, saving, investing and business.

Bo thus created TrulyRichClub, a private group of individuals that he supports in their financial and support growth. TrulyRichClub is for people who are serious in changing their beliefs and thinking — to gain the abundance mentality they need to change their lives forever. The club provides mmbers with the right tools, principles, and strategies to grow in their financial and spiritual life.

Aside from Kerygma magazine, he publishes several more magazines, devotionals and Bible reflection guides: Didache, Gabay, Companion, Sabbath, Fish and Mustard. All of them are top selling periodicals.

He founded many organizations, such as Anawim, a special home for the abandoned elderly , and Shepherd’s Voice, a media ministry that publishes the most widely read Catholic literature in the country. He also founded Light of Jesus Family and the Light of Jesus Counseling Center. A firm believer in working with others, he has partnered with Gawad Kalinga and other groups that work for the poorest of the poor. He has also formed the KerygmaFamily, a borderless, international, nonphysical community. All over the world, people are signing up as members of this virtual community — where they receive a mountain of great stuff for their spiritual and personal growth.

In another endeavor he’s very passionate about, Bo started the Catholic Filipino Academy to help parents who wish to teach their children at home. (Log on to

But above all these, Bo believes that his first call from God is to be a loving husband to his wife, Marowe, and a devoted father to his sons Benedict and Francis. They live in Manila, Philippines. Each month, Bo writes The Bo Sanchez Soulfood Letter and emails it to tens of thousands of people, inspiring them to live fantastic lives and connecting them to Bo’s ministry. It is absolutely FREE. To subscribe, log on to or call up (+632) 725-9999 or 411-7874.

Bo Sanchez was one of the Ten Outstanding Young Men (TOYM) of the Philippines in 2006.

I joined the TrulyRichClub!!!

One day I was browsing at National Bookstore and noticed a bright red book with the title

My Maid Invests in the Stock Market… And Why You Should Too!
Because Everyone Ought to Be Rich
by Bo Sanchez

I bought the book and finished it after two hours.  And it asked my to join the Truly Rich Club.  So I visited the site, and lo and behold!  You can download this same FREE eBook,  My Maid Invests in the Stock Market… And Why You Should Too! .

My 16 year old son read this book too (took him three hours).  Fast forward, nine months:
– I’ve been a happy member of the club for nine months
– My son invested in the stock market last October, and after five months has seen his investments up 20%.

I originally signed up to get the stock market advise, but today, I eagerly await for the twice-a-month PowerTalks MP3 download more than the regular stock market advise.  Listening to the recordings daily on my Blackberry, while driving has changed my way of thinking, made me a much happier person, and has inspired me to take action to be Truly Rich!

Friends, if you want to be Rich, or if you want to be happy, or you want to be both rich and happy, simply join the TrulyRichClub.

Or download the Free eBook “My Maid….”



Book Review: “My Maid Invests in the Stock Market… And Why You Should Too!”

The full title of the book is:

My Maid Invests in the Stock Market… And Why You Should Too!
Because Everyone Ought to Be Rich
by Bo Sanchez

Because Everyone Oight to be Rich

First of all, let me tell you a secret. You can get this book for FREE, by visiting

So what’s in the book?

It is all about how to retire a Millionaire using the stock market

Once upon a time, Bo Sanchez was a poor missionary who received an allowance of P30 a day. There were days when he couldn’t afford to pay for a bus ticket to preach in a prayer meeting.

But in 1998, he transformed his life. Today, he owns many small businesses, all running on autopilot, because he spends 90 percent of his time still doing missionary work.

He also learned how to invest in the stock market. And he has never forgotten the true purpose of wealth — to love others.

In this inspiring yet highly practical book, you’ll read the fascinating story of how he helped three of his house helpers invest in the stock market and build their retirement fund. He’ll tell you how he taught them the 5-envelope system. He’ll explain how he painted a clear vision of their future in their minds. In this book, you’ll learn his “4 Rules to Making Millions Thru the Stock Market”.

Bo believes that you can retire a multimillionaire by investing in the stock market. Because if his helpers can do it, you can, too.

Be Truly Rich Sooner! ( not 20 years from now!)

Finally, A Special Program To Make You Become Truly Rich SOONER (Not 20 Years From Now), Even If You’re Totally Ignorant About Business And Have Failed Repeatedly. . .

According to “Captain Abundance” Bo Sanchez:

My friend said there are three ways to become rich:

  • Be a movie star like Julia Roberts
  • Be an athlete like Manny Pacquiao; Or
  • marry a rich person like Julia Roberts or Manny Pacquaio.

Kidding aside, there are three ways that people use to become wealthy, and I’ll explain it to you with a parable. . .

Imagine three friends who heard of a gigantic pot of gold sitting on top of a mountain. The only way to reach it was by foot. The first guy chose to WALK up the mountain.

The second guy, a little bit more fit than the first guy, chose to RUN up the mountain.

And the third guy chose to RACE up the mountain like he was in a 100-meter dash. He really believed it was a race- that the first guy to reach the top wins. (Let me insert a very important lesson here: People who believe in abundance believe there’s wealth for everyone. We’re not competing. There is NO race because the prize is infinite.)

What happened to the guy? He collapsed after running like a maniac for 30 minutes. He suffered a heart attack and he had to be carried down the mountain in a stretcher.

In the same way, people use these three ways of becoming rich…

  • They WALK to their Millions (Around 20 Years)
  • They RUN to their Millions (Around 6 Years)
  • They RACE to their Millions (Around 1 Year)

I repeat: I will NOT recommend the third option because, well frankly, it can kill you. Go ahead. Look around the internet and you’ll find THOUSANDS of “Quick-Rich Schemes”, inviting you to give them money so that they can teach you to become a multimillionaire in a few weeks or months. Whenever I read these ads, I cringe at the number of people who are being fooled by them. (Because we like instant wealth, scams multiply like germs.)

A lot of people are so in a hurry at getting rich, they become blind to other more important things: Their family, their health, their values, and their relationship with God.

Friend, life is a marathon, not a 100-meter dash. Yes, I know marathons are still considered a race, but in one sense, it’s not. A marathon finisher is still a big WINNER, not just the first guy who crossed the finish line.

Today, let me explain the first two ways of becoming wealthy: Walking To Your Millions (Around 20 Years) and Running To Your Millions (Around 6 Years)

Walking To Your Millions (Around 20 Years)

The first way -  Walking to your Millions -  is something that I’ve already taught you. Most likely, you’re already doing: Investing in the Stock Market each month using SAM (Strategic Averaging Method). But today, I’d like to talk about running to your wealth.

Running To Your Millions (Around 6 Years)

When I explain the two ways of becoming rich (Walking and Running), people ask me, “Bo, what should I use?” I tell them, “Use both.”

Here’s the simple formula: WALKING to your Millions is about being and Investor. RUNNING to your Millions is about being an Entrepreneur.

I can hear you now. “But Bo, I failed in business!”

Hey, welcome to the club!

In the past 16 years, I’ve failed in 12 businesses. I fell flat on my face and ate dirt. I crawled on mud. I cried buckets. I lost millions. I lost face. And I thought I lost my desire to be an Entrepreneur.

Why did I fail?


Because no one taught me! No one was there to MENTOR me in business. I just did everything on my own. No one taught me how to select the right product, or the right strategy, or the right numbers. No one taught me how to select the right Entrepreneurial Pathway. No one taught me how to stick to my Core Zone.

I DON’T want you to experience my pain. It was horrible.

But one blessed day, I met my BUSINESS MENTORS. And it was like flicking a switch. And the room turned bright. And like night turning to day, my “luck” in business changed. My Business Mentors taught me very simple things that transformed my businesses. Through their guidance, I dumped wrong businesses. I started new ones. I applied “magnetic” marketing strategies that attracted the right customers. (Because of these strategies, I never lack customers; I don’t chase after customers; customers chase after me!)

Today, my businesses are incredibly successful. I sometimes pinch myself. Is this really happening to me? Wasn’t it just a few years back when I wanted to give up and just stick to preaching?

Today, I want to teach you how to achieve the same success.
