As I rolled past Detroit Metropolitan Airport this morning, I looked over to see the giant Delta building, and it hits me: The best businesses are those that provide a service. Transportation, parts and maintenance, for the vehicle that provides said transportation; food. Basically anything humans will always need, or have grown accustomed to.
Barbers, and hair stylist will never NOT be needed. Same goes for anyone who makes clothes (expensive or not), all the way down to coffee.
Business isn’t a bad thing, in fact I encourage many to become entrepreneurs all the time. Don’t be a consumer, be a producer. It’s better than sitting around complaining about rich people, and talking about who’s getting over on you, instead play the game.
All I want, is for you to think. I realize I won’t get to everyone, but I’m talking to a select few who are waking up to the fact that something isn’t right about not keeping your money in your pocket. Most people are taught from childhood to spend, spend, spend. Usually by those who were taught the same thing, thus consumerism is passed down to you, like a family trait.
I’m writing this because I see so many unhappy people, who spend all their money on frivolous things, and complain about being broke.
I’ll break it down the best way I know how:
Poor decision making = shitty results.
I’m sure many will want to give me a history lesson on why people are at the stage of life they are in, but at the end of the day, the simplistic answer is, if you know the game, and can see the playbook, adjust your strategy. And if you don’t, remember this: There are people out there adjusting their strategy as we speak, to part you from the true power you have to fight back — your money.✌🏿
