Most entrepreneurs would easily fall for the idea that building wealth can only happen by selling their business. The truth is: only a handful of entrepreneurs get to sell their businesses for millions and most are missing out on the crucial steps of being a successful entrepreneur.

If you’re already an entrepreneur or an aspiring one, giving up on your ideas might cost you to lose the ticket to a life of success. Here are the three cycles that can help you get through to your entrepreneurial journey with ease.

Wealth accumulation does not happen over time. It requires you to be consistent with your financial plan and making sure that you stick to it. There are three factors that can greatly affect your success in achieving wealth:
1. The number of years that you have been both saving and investing.
2. The portion of funds that you allocate to investments that have higher returns such as stocks.
3. How you maximize the power of tax code to your advantage to accumulate more wealth

Those factors are crucial to your successful entrepreneurial journey. Make sure your give priority to your savings than your spending needs. It will greatly help you budget your funds and keep some of it as your savings.

Entrepreneurs have different financial needs than the others—from planning their business taxes to ensuring that their savings are well tied up to the wealth from their business. Although most entrepreneurs are reluctant to hand over their assets to a third party to manage, doing so might actually help them with their financial investments and even obtain financial advice as well.

Wealth Transfer

Wealth transfer is the transfer of assets or finances to beneficiaries through financial and tax planning strategies. When considering transferring wealth, most entrepreneurs would want to have their assets passed on to the people that they choose at the highest rate interest earned and at the lowest possible taxation rate.

You have to know whom to trust your wealth to, so that it doesn't stay stagnant with the wrong person. As an entrepreneur, you have to ensure that your business would continue to grow even to the next generation.

Wealth transfer can be a complicated topic to discuss for most families, especially for the rich and famous. Several issues may arise and can even cost discord to family members.

Investment strategy and insurance, ownership structures and taxes, business continuity and even the objectives and your relationship to your family members are some of the factors that you need to consider when creating your wealth transfer plan. That is why most people, especially the wealthy ones, are hesitant to discuss this matter. But how would you ensure that you are prepared for it?
