The Richest Man in Babylon’s Secret

There is an old fable: It is called the “Richest Man in Babylon”

The story is simple and has served those well who have followed it. I’ve shared the book with hundreds of people over the years and would love to give you a copy. The moral of the story goes like this:

There will always be a line up of people outside your door with their hands held palm up. After each payday most people pay each one until they have spent all their money. They even send some people away before they are paid. This leaves little for themselves.

The Richest Man’s Secret… Pay yourself first and then divide the rest. You deserve to keep at least 10% of everything you make.
Start with this premise… There will likely never be enough to go around. If you pay everybody before yourself then you must your payment schedule without delay our you will never be in the group that achieves “Financial Independence”.
Over the next 20 years economists and futurists are predicting change greater than that brought on by the industrial revolution. It will likely turn society upside down – so we must be ready or the consequences may cause severe hardship.

E. & O.E.
