Have you thought about who benefits when you achieve financial independence and build wealth? Right now, you're probably mentally listing yourself, your family, close friends, your church, and charities you support. But when you build a successful business, you also have a strong and positive impact on your local community and the overall economy. And that's why it's in the government's best interest for you to become wealthy.
When you think about it, it makes sense. Successful real estate investors increase the value of their holdings and get distressed properties back on the tax rolls to generate income for municipalities. Successful business owners create jobs, and the people who fill those jobs pay taxes and contribute to the overall economy. Clearly, the government has a vested interest in the success of your real estate business, and that's why there are literally thousands of local, state, and national government programs that will help you make money.
Government help in your endeavors to make money is not a new concept. From the earliest days of commerce, governments have helped their citizens embark on a variety of business ventures. As the United States grew from a tiny cluster of colonies on the East Coast and expanded westward, land grants to Americans willing to homestead or farm were plentiful. Local, state, and federal programs that encourage community development and business formation and expansion are abundant. And all you need to do to take advantage of these programs is to ask.
If you're like most people, chances are your interactions with various government agencies have involved paying them money—paying income, property, and other taxes; buying vehicle tags; and applying for driver's and even marriage licenses. You're conditioned to think that if the government is involved, you may as well get out your checkbook and start writing. This chapter helps you reverse that mindset: When the government is involved, you'll get out deposit slips because your bank balance is going to grow.
How much money is available? Literally billions of dollars. Don't let the headlines fool you into thinking there's no government money available for entrepreneurs. Economic and election cycles prompt politicians and pundits to scream and whine about budget cuts and the need to reduce the size of the government. Regardless of where you stand politically, the government is growing and money is available. And you can put that money to good use—improving your community, providing needed housing for deserving people, and securing your own financial future in the process.
