Isn’t that amazing?
Jay Leno has never touched a dime of income he made off The Tonight Show. Instead, he did 150 comedy tours to pay his basic expenses.
Even when he was making $30 million per year hosting the show… he still saved it all. That’s why he so stupid rich.
Tis why I lols at the folks that say saving money can’t make you rich.
Clearly, it can.
But, it worked at every income level… not just after he made it big.
Befrore he was a full-time comedian, he was a car salesman, and he would save all his car salesman money and spend his comedy gig money. When he got famous from his comedy acts, he flipped it — he kept working as a car salesman and saved all his comedy gig money.
His idea was to always have 2 sources of income and live on the lower income source and save 100% of the higher income source.
I have to admit, that’s an epic strategy and one that nearly everyone could implement if they really wanted to.
But alas, not everyone has that kind of dedication.
And that’s OK. Some people are meant to be wealthy. Others, poor.
I’d love to say everyone can have everything they want but… that’s simply not true.
Some people can’t and some people don’t want.
Also, not everyone wants to save a bunch of moolah when they’re young to make this work. It can be a drag watching your friends go out while you stay home. And… yes eventually you’ll save up enough to have anything you want but… you have to be pretty austere for 10 years (at least).
So, you basically live broke theough your 20s and 30s and then you’re handsomely rewarded in your 40s, 50s, 60s, etc.
It takes guts to save when you could be out buying the newest iPhone, designer clothes, a big house, and a new BMW.
Eventually, you could be just like Jay Leno (give or take a million), but you have to save. And saving isn’t secksy and that’s OK.
Different strokes for different folks. I mean that. I totally get it. Everyone has different goals, dreams, wishes, values, and so on.
Also, there’s more than one way to get there so I fully admit that scrimping and saving while you’re young isn’t the only way.
It’s a very good way, but it’s not the only way.
Saving does take discipline but it doesn’t necessarily mean you have to give up things or make sacrifices.
What it means is you must make priorities and you must have a clear vision of what you want your life to be like now and into the future.
Anywho, enough preaching.
On to bid’naz.
