Welcome to Kung Fu Finance! My name is Susan Fujii (aka Kung Fu Girl), and I am an SEC Accredited Investor. According to the most recent census data, this distinction supposedly places me in the top 2% of all Americans for wealth (although please note there is a HUGE gap between the likes of me and the illustrious “1%” such as George Soros, Warren Buffett, Oprah, Trump, Jamie Dimon, etc… I am still part of the 99%!).
Over the past ten years I have made it my mission to become financially educated and free, and in the past several years alone I have enjoyed a 100%+ average return on my investments (not a typo, although I obviously can’t promise that to you nor necessarily keep it up myself every single year!), have been invited to participate in Private Placements reserved for sophisticated investors, have safely and legally diversified our holdings into precious metals, foreign real estate, currencies, energy, options, and other so-called “advanced” investments, and much more.
Let’s take a look at my “Before” picture:
I used to be a financial dunce. I got my start on the path to financial “success” way back in 1996 when I graduated from college and began working at my first job, where I promptly:
So, off to a great start, hey? I mean, really, if it weren’t so pathetic and sad it would be comical! (OK, you can stop laughing now…this was my LIFE!)
Now you may be asking yourself, “how did all THAT get you started on the path to financial SUCCESS? That sounds like a financial disaster!”.
And you would be right!
HOW, exactly, did I go from being thousands of dollars in debt to becoming a successful Accredited Investor?
First, let me tell you what I didn’t do:
No. I didn’t do any of that!
Here’s what I did do:
I Got Educated,
I Took Action.
It really is that simple. All I did was decide to get educated, and I mean REALLY educated. And although that’s not particularly sexy, and is certainly not a “SUPER SNEAKY SECRET GURU TRICK” that I can share with you to make you instantly wealthy, I hope you find it inspirational….because if I can do it, then YOU CAN TOO.
(Heck if I can do it, ANYONE CAN!).
These are the true secrets that most financial professionals don’t want you to know:
So what DID I do to get out of debt, take control of my finances, and learn to be a pretty darn good investor?
Well, like I said, this is not sexy, but I:
I won’t lie to you– it wasn’t easy. There is so much conflicting (and downright terrible and misleading) financial advice out there, and there is no one (whom I have found, anyway) who teaches you how to become financially savvy from beginning to end.
I had to do it all the hard way, through trial and error (LOTS of errors, I assure you!). My financial library now rivals the one at any top Business School, and I spend most days glued to CNBC and financial websites– both paid-for and free publications. (But YOU don’t have to…that’s why I’ve created Kung Fu Finance!).
I purchased the domain name for Kung Fu Finance over three years ago, after being completely fed up with the complete lack of information and in many cases, downright MIS-information out there. I remember thinking to myself, “if only there were a site that taught people the real truths about money and investing, instead of the same old crap peddled by the large financial institutions! A place where people could come and just ‘Go all Kung Fu!’ on their financial problems and work together to get ahead.” I searched and searched, but found nothing like it. The closest I could find was The Motley Fool, but I couldn’t find much advanced information there– they primarily focus on the most basic of basics, and now spend a lot of time peddling their paid-for stock newsletters (the Motley Fool “Hidden Gems”, or “Rule Breakers”, or….you get the idea).
And so Kung Fu Finance was born. It’s the site I wish I had when I started my own journey to financial independence! It’s taken me three years to launch it, but I am very excited about what we are creating: a site that puts YOU in charge of your personal finances; a true financial *education* site where you can learn the ins and outs of money, economics and finance in a fun and engaging way and where you are NOT pushed to invest in the latest “hot stock” that is “sure” to gain 1000% next year!
What you WILL find here is USEFUL, ACTIONABLE information and a supportive community of like-minded individual investors as our site grows.
I will share with you EXACTLY how I went from thousands of dollars in debt to becoming a bona fide accredited investor, while hopefully saving you from making the same mistakes I made and from having to do ALL THAT RESEARCH yourself, like I had to do. I want you to achieve financial success in far less time than it took me!
I will also share with you my tried and true proven masters who have helped lead me to such financial success (because no one does it alone), the systems that I have created along the way to make everything easier, and real “from the trenches” interviews with other successful investors who have also “walked the walk” so that you can learn from the best.
I wish I could tell you exactly how long it will take you to become a financial master of your own destiny, but I am not going to lie to you– the truth is that it depends on where you are starting from. But what I CAN promise you is that I will tell you exactly what to do each step of the way and exactly what worked for me!
So if you haven’t yet, please sign up for the free daily updates– they are chock full of candid financial tips and tricks that will help you in your journey!
Thank you for reading, and best of luck going all kung fu on your OWN finances!
I’ll be right here with you.
To your financial success,
— Kung Fu Girl (Susan Fujii)
