Baby Money Soldiers: A Mindset Shift

  • Every dollar you earn is a “Baby Money Soldier,” a crucial unit in your financial army.
  • Don’t “kill” your soldiers early by spending them all on luxuries.
  • The goal is to train and multiply your soldiers through saving and investing.

How to Deploy Your Baby Money Soldiers:

  1. Track Expenses and Prioritize Savings:

    • Understand how your money flows by tracking expenses.
    • Prioritize saving a portion of your income (Barbaro suggests starting small, even 1%).
    • Allocate your income strategically (consider a 50/10/10/10/10 split for necessities, luxuries, charity, education, and savings).
  2. Invest for Growth:

    • Invest your saved money in assets that generate income or appreciate in value (stocks, real estate, etc.).
    • This allows your “soldiers” to procreate and grow your wealth over time.
  3. Utilize Savings Wisely:

    • Maintain a reserve of savings for emergencies or unexpected opportunities.
    • Consider using a portion of savings for future goals like college or retirement.
  4. Embrace Calculated Debt (Optional):

    • Debt can be a tool if used strategically (e.g., mortgages for investment properties).
    • Remember, debt is like “money mercenaries” you have to pay for their service (interest).
  5. Protect Your Soldiers:

    • Utilize insurance (home, life, etc.) to safeguard your financial well-being in case of unforeseen events.
  6. Invest in Yourself:

    • Allocate some resources towards education and skill development. This can enhance your earning potential in the future.
  7. Give Back:

    • Consider using a portion of your “soldiers” for charitable causes that resonate with you.
  8. Plan for Legacy:

    • Utilize some savings for estate planning to ensure your wealth benefits future generations.


  • Financial freedom is a journey, not a destination.
  • Start small, be consistent, and let your “Baby Money Soldiers” work their magic over time.
  • Tune in to the next episode where Gino Barbaro dives deeper into the mindsets of poor, middle-class, and wealthy individuals regarding money management.

Take Action:

  • Track your income and expenses for a month to understand your spending habits.
  • Create a budget that prioritizes saving and allocates funds for different needs.
  • Explore investment options based on your risk tolerance and financial goals.

By adopting the “Baby Money Soldier” mentality and implementing these strategies, you can take control of your finances and empower yourself on the path to financial freedom.
