From Frugal Husband …
Since everyone has been singing the praises of Donald Glover’s TV show, Atlanta, I decided to watch a few episodes.
When Earnest (a character in the show) said that poor people don’t have time for investing, I immediately connected with him. People who are broke like I was, really don’t think about investing.
They need to make sure the lights, water, and gas are on today, not a month from now. I didn’t want to invest in anything when I didn’t know if my next paycheck would be enough to cover my bills. Yeah, I knew that investing in 401k and stock would pay off in the long run. But, I also knew that any money I invested, wouldn’t immediately be available to me. Broke people need money now.
