I want to build wealth. I don't want to be stuck working in some lame job until I die. I want to "retire" as soon as possible so I can do what I want without needing to worry about generating income all the time.
I'm taking both a short term and a long term approach to my wealth building. In the long-term, I am saving and investing money every month. I'm not very agressive with my investing, but I am doing a good job of building a diverse portfolio that hopefully will result in a large nest egg many decades from now.
In the short term, I al always looking for opportunities to generate large amounts of income. I'm not satisfied making a yearly salary no matter how large it is. My goal is to start a business that will lead to immediate success. This is hard to do, but it is even harder to have thius type of success if you never give it a shot.
Most successful business people I have read about had a few failures before they hit it big. I try to remember this as some of my businesses have not done so well. Even in failure, I am learning a lot about how to run a business.
I don't know if I will be successful in building wealth, but I am doing my best to give myself an opportunity to succeed.
