Personal finance mastery is something that you must master. I'm not just talking about having a good pension or stock portfolio, I'm talking about much more basic money mastery. Find out more in this article.
The Day Job
Think about your job. You work every day for someone else and take home an average amount of money every month. You wish you could earn more money but you can only do that by moving job.
Even if you move job, you still wish you could earn more money even then! But you are pretty much powerless to do anything about it.
You Are Being Exploited
Think about it. Your company is owned by shareholders or directors or even a single owner. Whatever the structure, somebody is at the stop.
They don't employ you out of the goodness of their heart. They do it because they can make more money out of you than they pay you to do the work.
Otherwise they simply wouldn't employ you!
You are basically being exploited and paid less than your true worth!
Redress The Balance
Your aim in life should be to get on the other side. To become the producer and employ others to do your work. You don't need to be rich to do this. You want to aim to become your own boss, control your own work and take all the profits home yourself instead of distributing them to others.
This way, other people can't rip you off and leave you with the crumbs at the end.
Internet Marketing - A Salvation
15 years ago if you wanted to start your own business then you had to invest a lot of money. Pretty much the cheapest thing going was direct marketing where you post leaflets to people.
In today's world of the internet, you can easily set up a website and start making money from day 1. These are not scams or illegitimate earnings - this is about you having a website and essentially helping people out. You don't even need to spend a dime!
I know this because I started doing this and making money and now I work full-time!
