If there’s one thing that almost all of us would love – aside from endless personal happiness and fulfillment – it’s to be filthy stinking rich. It may sound a little crass and, granted, money isn’t a driver for some people, but most of us would love to be comfortably wealthy. Whether it’s so you can cruise around St. Tropez in a supercar or just so you needn’t ever worry about finances again.
But how do you do it? Well, there is a way but in order to explain it, we first need to tell you how not to become rich. It might sound counter-productive, but bear with us. You’ll have to quit your job.
Why? Well, IRS stats show that this is where the richest 400 people in America’s money comes from:
- Wages and salaries: 8.6%
- Interest: 6.6%
- Dividends: 13%
- Partnerships and corporations: 19.9%
- Capital gains: 45.8%
The conclusion? No one gets rich working for other people. You’ve got to work for yourself. When we said about quitting your job, we meant ‘eventually’. You’ll need an income while you set up your own firm. Setting up a company is actually a lot easier than you might think, though. The boring bits can be done in a day. You just need an idea. And the drive.
Working for someone else, you’ll make money – but you won’t get ‘f*ck you rich’. You’ll work your fingers to bone making someone else rich. So why not be the boss instead?
You won’t only become cash rich, you’ll end up personally wealthy too. Feeling like you’re achieving, pushing on and leading a life of your own. Instead of enduring the drudgery of slavery.
Of course, there’s nothing wrong with being an employee. But if you want to get rich. Really rich – you’ve got to go in alone. It’s as simple as that.
Start small, dream big. Aim high. Live your dreams. Just give it a go…
