Wealth Assistants Offers Service that Helps Clients Experience a Financial Breakthrough in Amazon

The pandemic has made it difficult to grow one’s financial assets. However, it is also because of the pandemic that building real wealth became more accessible than ever, so long as people knew the proper steps. With the help of the right financial partners, people would be able to make the best financial decisions that would grow their money. That is what Ryan Carroll, founder of Wealth Assistants, firmly believes. 

Ryan Carroll is a twenty-six-year-old businessman who founded Wealth Assistants in late 2021 because people need more money, and they need it quicker than ever before due to inflation being at an all-time high. The company Wealth Assistants is a modern-day wealth management service helping people build a well-diversified portfolio of cash-flowing assets that are 99% managed by their operational teams. The company operates efficiently through its “DFY” or “done-for-you” services. This marker means investors get to make entirely passive income without worrying about personally getting involved in all the operations of the businesses they’re investing in. 

Wealth Assistants’ primary investment vehicle is for its holders via Amazon stores, where investors get to own an Amazon store that is completely managed for them by the Wealth Assistants team. Ryan has a seven-figure Amazon operations team of over five hundred people. The goal with owning an Amazon store is to get a new stream of entirely passive income greater than ten thousand dollars a month and exit the business for a three to five multiple. 

On top of that, Wealth Assistants has funding partners which allow investors to use “Other People’s Money” at 0% interest rates when obtaining these new cash-flowing Amazon stores.

Ryan Carroll skipped the traditional “go to college” to get a nine-to-five job and instead went down his path leading him to sell products online at a young age. He now has seven years of ecommerce experience to date. Moreover, millions of dollars in sold products have led him to establish Wealth Assistants, which focuses on bringing emerging assets to investors with cash flow greater than traditional assets.

As Wealth Assistants grow their network and gather momentum for a bigger market under Ryan’s leadership, they are looking at helping men ages 40 to 65 who consider themselves as sophisticated inventors aiming to diversify their portfolio and nine-to-five workers that want to start investing or planning for retirement.

What makes Wealth Assistants stand out in the saturated industry is their moneyback guarantee. Specifically with Amazon, if their investors do not at least break even in year one on their investment, the company will pay them back the difference. “This brings peace of mind for our investors as it de-risks the investment and guarantees them success. We have this in place solely due to our confidence in being able to build profitable Amazon stores for our clients,” says Ryan.

Ryan realized that bringing in investors and having them fund the business startups would help them expand their ecommerce portfolio quicker, which also adds overall significant evaluation for the company. “Wealth Assistants is a win-win for our partners with their guaranteed revenue and our company valuation.”

Shift in Grocery Shopping Habits Can Be Attributed to Soaring Food Price

The world is facing an unparalleled crisis as a result of the ever-increasing food prices. As if it wasn’t enough, there will soon be disruptions in international farming communities adding even more headaches

BMO and Ipsos held a quarterly survey and found that 42% of adults changed their grocery shopping habits to avoid big brands, instead opting to go for cheaper, essential items.

People also prefer to eat at home instead of dining out. 46% of those surveyed said they would rather do so to spend less.

The factors that have caused food prices to rise are high energy costs and the Russian invasion. Additionally, every day this past week, gas prices reached record highs with AAA reporting a national average cost for gasoline at $4.85 on Sunday morning. Diesel also experienced increases during these same days reaching $5.64 per gallon.

The farmers’ reliance on gas made it difficult for them to utilize equipment and transport goods.

“By the economics textbook, higher costs work themselves up through the supply side of the market and raise prices,” said American Farm Bureau Federation chief economist Roger Cryan. “The prices are especially high right now because of the sudden lack of access to Black Sea grain, but if these energy prices stay high in the long run, then they will entirely work their way into food prices.”

A significant amount of these increases can be attributed to the invasion by Russia, which led many countries into an exporting crisis as they lost access or became unable to produce certain crops due their volatile situation there.

“Ukraine is one of the largest wheat producers and suppliers, so wheat is definitely under pressure,” said agriculture professor and Research Economist for Center for Global Trade Analysis Maksym Chepeliev. “Corn as well, because apart from the fact that Ukraine is a large corn producer and supplier that needs to be replaced, there have been issues with droughts in South America and also the U.S. that kind of reduced the corn supply, and China is demanding more corn, and that is pushing the global corn market.”

The recent avian flu outbreaks have led to soaring egg prices. Additionally, Florida’s oranges yield fell due to a bacterial infection affecting crops.

The food industry is predicting that prices for groceries and other foods will continue to rise. It’s not clear when they’ll come down again, but it seems inevitable since 40-year high levels of inflation have been sustained so far this year alone.

Summit of the Americas to Open with Biden’s Economic Agendas, Not Trade Agreements

The Summit of the Americas will be a crucial opportunity for President Joe Biden to sell his economic agenda. However, trade agreements are not on this list and may have been conveniently left out.

The President will present a proposal aimed at mobilizing new investments, facilitating inclusive trade and strengthening supply chains. The plan also promotes decarbonization by updating the “social contract” between governments with their people in mind.

“The overall objective is to build our economies from the bottom up and the middle out by building on the foundation established by our free trade agreements with the region to better address the inequality and lack of economic opportunity and equity,” shared a senior administration official.

In an effort to heal wounds after public speculation about who would be invited, the partnership will also address several other initiatives including economic engagement rather than the domestic issues that was earlier speculated.

Mexican PresidentAndrés Manuel López Obrador has revealed he will not be attending the 2022 Summit of the Americas after the exclusion of Cuba, Venezuela, and Nicaragua.

During the summit, Biden’s administration will seek to improve ties with its southern neighbors to discuss immigration, climate change, and the growing economic and political influence of its geopolitical rival, China. However, Biden’s proposal may not satisfy Latin American countries’ desire to gain more trade access to the United States.

“I really worry America has sort of walked away from our engagement in Central and Latin America, and I think it’s going to take a deliberate, concerted effort to re-engage,” said House Ways and Means Committee’s member and free trade vocal supporter Rep. Kevin Brady. “I don’t see that happening at the Americas summit, principally because the whole world knows the president’s not interested in enforceable trade agreements that can help boost investment in two-way trade.”

Throughout the three-day summit, Biden will discuss the economic agenda, health initiatives, climate change, food security, and migration.
