Banks are willing to lend us credit cards.

With these credit cards, our purchasing power increases. We are able to purchase the things we want, as long as we pay the bank back. But these credit card companies also incentivize us to purchase more with bonuses and gifts. So the question becomes: how can we use these free perks to pay off our credit cards?

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, Stephen Liao teaches us how to sift through the world of credit card perks to be able to do just this. Stephen dropped out of Stanford to figure out the credit card game just a year ago, and today he has a credit-limit that exceeds $3 million spread across 220 different credit cards. If he’s not flying first-class, he’s on a private jet. And if he’s not staying at the Waldorf Astoria, he’s at the Ritz-Carlton. Tune in today to learn his secrets on building a good credit score!

“Essentially, it’s legal money laundering. You pay off your credit card with cash equivalence, get your sign up bonus, and then pocket the $150.” - Stephen Liao

Points to Keep In Mind
  • Checking your credit for your own personal use does not hurt your credit
  • Use Credit Karma to check credit
  • VantageScore is less accurate than FICO score
  • 850 is a perfect credit score
  • Try to keep your credit card utilization under 9%
  • Treat your credit limit as how much money you have
  • Utilization rate, payment history, and derogatory marks affect your credit score
  • Age of credit history factors in: oldest account and average age
  • You can’t help your age of credit history
  • Try to have an age of credit history over 9 years
  • Try to have at least 21 lines of credit being reported 
  • Correlation does not imply causation when opening new credit cards
  • For those under 18, get authorized on your parents/relatives’ cards to build rapport with banks 
  • Get Chase Freedom for first card
  • $150 cash back for $500 spent
  • 5% money back (MB) for an intermediate credit card
  • You need a credit score of at least 600 to receive credit card perks
  • Try to get status with each card (ex: Delta’s status for travel allows you to upgrade to first-class for free)
  • If you’re in debt, look into Citi Simplicity to balance-transfer your debt (also, Chase Slate and Bank Americard)

Relationships can be the most difficult algorithm.

When we partner up with a mate, the bowl of emotions doubles in quantity and suddenly, there’s two spoons stirring inside. If we’re not careful with who we choose, it can quickly become a mess too great for us to handle.

That’s why breaking down personality types is so important.

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are wrapping up our discussion with Dr. Helen Fisher by discussing the 4 personality types: explorers, builders, negotiators, and directors. Helen Fisher, PhD has conducted extensive research and written six books on the evolution and future of human sex, love, marriage, gender differences in the brain and how your personality style shapes who you are and who you love. She is currently using her knowledge of brain chemistry to discuss the neuroscience of business leadership and innovation.
