THERE ARE NO SECRETS IN MONEY MANAGEMENT! THERE ARE NO SECRETS IN MONEY MANAGEMENT! THERE ARE NO SECRETS IN MONEY MANAGEMENT!
There is no secret club. There are no secret formulas. There are a lot of clever lawyers, accountants, and actuaries that the wealthy employ, but for average people, the high fixed costs won’t make it work.
If you want to be wealthy, you have to run your own firm, run it well, providing value to many. Don’t listen to those who say they have an easy way to wealth. They are lying, and are looking to make money off of you. Those who give you free advice are using you in some way. (Wait, what does that make me to be? Sigh.)
