I recently stumbled across a video that offers some interesting work-related advice from Mike Rowe, the host of Dirty Jobs. His advice: Don’t follow your passion.
I’ve been finding unique ways to hustle for cash since I was a young kid. The first side hustle that I can remember was collecting balls from the city softball fields near my home. That complex had four fields and there seemed to be games each night during the summer.
On game nights, each filed was used for several hours so there were a lot of home runs and foul balls hit. I could collect $0.10 for every ball that I chased down and returned to the scorekeeper’s table. I’d leave the fields each night with $10 to $20 bucks – more than enough to make me feel rich!
Hustle. Make money. Lesson learned!
Generally speaking, wealthy people get and stay rich because they make smart decisions with their money. They create a money making machine by purchasing assets, not liabilities. An asset makes you money, a liability costs you money. Successful people buy assets like real estate, fine art, and businesses. But what if you are not good at business?
