“I could be rich here...

...but there’s nothing to buy.“ —Amos Burton, The Expanse

Money isn’t worth ANYTHING on its own. It’s STORED valued. You MUST convert it to something to unlock the value.

Hoarding money is like hoarding AA batteries. Both are essentially useless without something to plug them into.

Here’s the thing...

Money is a SIDE EFFECT of creating value for other people. Focusing on making money is missing the point (and usually, not particularly effective).

Don’t focus on making money. Focus on creating value for other people. If you succeed in creating value, the money will magically appear.

Yours,
