To Crack the Rich Code, to me, means to become an entrepreneur; start a business, whether you have a job or not. If you have a job, great! Perhaps you’re unfulfilled in some way. Maybe you’re not making enough money, have too much stress, no time, freedom, autonomy, a hostile work environment…could be anything. One thing’s for sure. You’re reading this book for a reason. I’m not suggesting you put your family at financial risk by quitting your job prematurely; in fact, quite the opposite. Be strategic about your future, how you’re going to create it, and when you will venture out on your own as your main source of income. Bottom line, a little sincere planning, backed up with focus and perseverance, will go a long way in reaching the goals you have for yourself, your family, and your future.
Now before I go further, let me address the definition of the word “rich.” Usually that word is associated with making a lot of money, and that’s cool if that’s your goal. However, to others, living a “rich” life may mean lots of travel, time spent enjoying their kids and family, and creating memories on their own schedule. There’s plenty of people that would LOVE that. Maybe to you it’s both, or something completely different. Whatever it is, get clear on what you want, then you can make it your future reality. You’ll have to be in charge, because “rich” means you call the shots in life, and in order to do that, you’ll have to be the boss, not have a boss.
