Kevin Paffrath, better known by his other name as “Meet Kevin”, has a warning that he likes to share in his most recent YouTube video. In the current state of the world today, stocks and even cryptocurrency are steadily heading to a crash, and housing’s gonna be following suit. Inflation’s just all over the place, causing a lot of prices of goods to become even more expensive than before. The government is of little help either because it’s going to take some time before they can fix it (for a lot of reasons), and even if they can, it may make everything worse. Needless to say, we’re in a bad situation right now.
Kevin then makes this statement in the video. “But how should you prepare yourself? Well folks, first things first, you gotta ask yourself this question every single day. ‘Do I really need to buy this on Amazon? Do I really need to spend this money?’ I really hate to say it but I’ve been pitching this argument for like six months now. It is time to get frugal. And I also hate to say it but the more you get frugal, the more likely we actually go into a recession. But, you need to look out for yourself. Honestly, we need a president, and this is not Democrat or Republican, this is straight up, in the middle, fact.”
“We need a president who comes out right now and says, ‘Folks, we’re probably going to go into a recession. But it’s not that big of a deal as long as you survive it. By saving money, making sure that your job is secure, or having a backup plan if it isn’t. You have a backup plan for another job, you’re preparing another skill, you’re going to your boss and asking how you can provide more value during this recession.’ But yikes, okay. You need to prepare. And we need a president who says the same thing.”
“A recession doesn’t have to be that big of a deal. But it’s all of the other things that go along with a recession that are a big deal. We’ve got asset values plummeting, the potential for job loss, and if you lose your job at the same time as being in debt? And Congress is not providing any stimmys? Like that’s bad for your financial well-being. Terrible, right? That’s very very bad. So again, be prepared. Save cash, slow down spending, do what you can to get outta debt, stay strong.”
Kevin then continues. “Pay pay pay pay, pay that debt down. It’s much better than doing anything else. Even paying debt down before investing. Like, you pay your debt down and you have a stable job? At least you could be set up to go buy real estate. Don’t get so distracted by stocks right now. Focus on no debt; that way your debt-to-income ratio’s strong. And, think about it, what could you do to get certifications? Be a certified financial analyst, coding bootcamps, I don’t care, get a real estate license, right?”
“Become a CPA. The best time to start is in a crash. It’s the hardest time. If you can make it in a crash, and start out in a crash? You can make it in the good times as well. Be a survivor. So so important right now,” Kevin says as he finishes his video. While it has some political elements mixed in his statements, which may not be pleasing to some people (Meet Kevin is active in politics, after all), there’s no denying that his statement makes sense. Even though it may be part of his pitch that promotes his online courses, which can accomplish the things that Kevin suggests you do.
Meet Kevin actually offers a variety of online courses that can teach you the skills you need to make some money online. Whether it’s tock trading, making money on YouTube, and most especially, real estate, he’s got you covered. Though you may notice that there are more courses about real estate than the others, as Kevin has more experience in being a real estate broker. In addition, Kevin also has a program wherein he’ll recommend to you what moneymaking strategy you should take, based on certain criteria. Similar to a consultation program of sorts. The cost of each of the courses can range from $700+ to $1,300+. Meet Kevin is an honest guy, and he really knows what he’s saying. So there may be some value to what he teaches. The only problem with this is that the courses seem outdated at the moment.
