There is an Eagle’s song with the line “you can spend all your time making money” and many of us have embraced that concept.

We work really hard so we can get the bigger house, the nicer car, and memberships to “the right” clubs. To be able to enjoy all this money, we need to “free up” our “free time” so we hire:

  • A nanny for the kids
  • A landscaper
  • A trash removal company
  • A house cleaner
  • A handyman
  • A pool cleaner
  • A person to detail our car and boat
  • A dog walker and a company to come to our yard to pick up your dog’s poop.

One day, something starts to stir in us. Questions start to arise.

  • “Is bigger better?”
  • “How much money is enough?”
  • “Are all these people I hire enjoying my house & toys more than I am?”
  • “What is my “money number”?

What questions are you facing in your life? Are you spending all your time making money to employ other people so you can “enjoy” your own life? Something to think about, isn’t it.
