What is Velocity Banking? And How Do I Start?

You may know me from my YouTube Channel Denzel Napoleon Rodriguez, and I'm The Finance Geek. I'm here to introduce you to the method called Velocity Banking!

In the past you may have heard about Velocity Banking in the same sentence as "it's complicated" and even "is it a scam?" This is NOT true, and for many people, Velocity Banking is the first step in a long line of lifestyle changes, but what exactly is Velocity Banking and how does it work?

Velocity Banking is defined as the use of financial and banking products that manage and increase cash flow, to quickly create financial security by eliminating, reducing, or minimizing interest. Velocity banking is a more efficient way to use your current income.

The first thing I tell anyone who is thinking about starting Velocity Banking is to know your 4 Major Numbers: These numbers are Income, Expenses, Debt, and Cash Flow.

Different Types of Lines of Credit

Since so much of Velocity Banking centers around the Line of Credit and Cash Flow, I thought we could talk about the 3 different types of lines of credit there are. As a refresher, a line of credit is an arrangement between a financial institution—usually a bank—and a customer that establishes the maximum loan amount the customer can borrow.

What is Borrowing?

  1. What does it mean?

  2. How does it work?

  3. How can it change my life?

So let's start with the definition answering the question "What does it mean?"

Borrowing is a temporary possession of money with the intent to repay the amount borrowed. In a financial sense, if you borrow money, you assume a debt to the lender, this debt contains the principal amount plus interest.

Time to break that definition down. We have two parties when we talk about borrowing - we have the person who needs money (borrower) and the person who has money (lender). When a borrower asks for money and is approved for an amount they sign a contract that states how much time they have to pay the lender back, but they have to pay the original amount they borrowed plus interest back to the lender.

there are two major ways lenders calculate interest simple interest and amortize interest - you can read more about the differences here.
