Money vs. happiness
Money doesn't make you happy, but neither does poverty. If you're going to be miserable anyway, it's better to suffer with money than without it.
Personal financial growth is an asset and a blessing regardless of age. Many people over 50 are headed for minimum pensions after spending decades exchanging hours for legal tender. The majority of people would have preferred to own their own business, but trying to start a business is often too expensive and too risky, and although being an employee bartering time for wages makes many people feel like slaves or inmates - especially when bosses or supervisors tell them when to work, when to eat, when to have a day off, what projects to do and so on - the majority prefers to live in a comfort zone, shying away from self-dependence, responsibility, commitment, and determination, which are all absolute requirements for pursuit of liberty through financial independence, unless one is born filthy rich or happens to win a huge lottery jackpot, where the stakes are low and the odds microscopic.
Younger people are not just looking for good income, but for quality time to enjoy it with their families. Those who make decent money often don't have the time to enjoy it properly, because the effort and the drudgery required to earn good money in most ordinary professions consumes most of their time. They get caught up in the rat race, busy climbing the corporate ladder, or they end up going through bluecollar jobs or poorly paid part time office jobs until they realize they have no nest egg.
More people than ever are looking for a Plan B. The economy isn't the way many people would like; lots of folks get downsized or laid off, losing their jobs, and many of those who still have their jobs are wondering how long that may last.
Everybody has a Plan A, and there's nothing wrong with that: You go to school, get a good education, graduate, get a good job, and hopefully the company treats you good and you produce for the company, and hopefully 30 or 40 years later you get to retire. More and more people realize that this is a lesser possibility these days, and even though everyone has to have a Plan A, more and more people are figuring: What if that doesn't happen? What happens if Plan A doesn't go as well as you want it to?
Everybody should have a Plan B. In every country polled, over 90 % of the respondents say they want to own their own business - which is very interesting, assuming that those polls are accurate. If over 90 % of people want to own their own business, then why don't they? It's because most people fall into two categories: 1) Those who can't afford a traditional business. Most traditional businesses are some sort of franchise, and these may cost $20.000, $50.000, $100.000, $500.000 or millions of dollars. That alone keeps the majority of the people from starting their own business. 2) The others won't take the risk. Some people do have some money saved up that they could spend on a business. But they don't want to take the risk; they don't want to put their life savings into a business and leave a decent job, hoping that business works out.
Another Way Out
But there's a way out for those who care to look for it and are willing to do the work. It is possible to build residual income and become financially independent during the course of two to five years, sometimes even less. It's a perfect Plan B, because it doesn't cost a lot of money although it has just as much potential if not much much more than any business that will cost fifty or a hundred thousand or even half a million dollars. Secondly, there's no risk involved. No one has to put their life savings in, no one has to leave their job.
This ideal Plan B is outlined and explained through a couple of short videos (31 minutes in the aggregate) that opened the door for Yours Truly to an entirely new subject and a new world. The first of these - which is only 11 minutes long - is about how we normally spend our money almost brainlessly - what the wealthy, the middle class, and the poor buy on payday:
When you have learned these basic principles of smarter money spending - also available in German and Spanish - I recommend that you take this education one significant step further by looking through the next video - which is 20 minutes long - featuring a Harvard PhD of economics and marketing from the University of Illinois at Chicago:
At the end of each video, you will get access to a web form to contact Yours Truly about more information. (If you prefer, you may also watch "Brilliant Compensation" in German or Spanish.)
