How To Become a Member of The NEW RICH

There’s the tale of the Investment Banker that works 80+ hours a week, never has time to be with his family and enjoy life. He makes a cool $250,000 a year.

Now imagine this, there is another story of a man that only makes $60,000 a year. In this instance though, he only works 10-15 hrs. a week. He basically works when he wants, where he wants. He spends a ton of time enjoying life, traveling and spending quality time with his family and friends.

So let me ask you this: Which would YOU rather be? Would you rather be absolutely miserable, a slave to your j-o-b but you’re making a big income, never able to actually enjoy it? Or would you rather be free, and still make a nice income as well?

The first guy is what we would call TP (no, not toilet paper silly!), it stands for Time Poor. It’s the worst of poors. Most of the world is Time Poor. The second guy is (TR) Time Rich.

Tim Ferriss (pictured with me above), the author of the 4-Hour Workweek would dub him a member of the New Rich. (Please tell me you’ve read this book?)

I’m not sure what it is for you. But imagine what you would do each day if you were time free. Likely whatever it is, it won’t cost you near as much as you’d expect. In fact, I’d recommend you take a few minutes and figure it out. You’ll see that it
likely hasn’t been a money issue as to why you haven’t been living like you want and deserve, it’s been a time issue. It’s a revolutionary concept that can set you free from the shackles of the rat race.

And I’m so excited to share with you my groundbreaking eBook that can transform you into a full-fledged member of the New Rich. You’ve now got the system, you’ve got the coaches, and you’ve got me to help you every step of the way. Just imagine down the road living life on your terms. Doing everything you’ve always wanted to. You’ll look back and remember this day as your turning point.

    sir really it’s correct it’s a great article, one man earned & 250,000 & one man earned $60,000 it’s true, unbelievable, where you collect this information, this is a great post to all of us. thank you

    I loved the article.

    There is a balance that can be reached. The 4-Hour Work-Week describes what can be considered as work. If that $250,000 is earned in a career that this person LOVES, it can never been considered work. The other interesting note from this icicle is the definition of happiness is spending time home with a wife and children.

    Somebody who spends their time traveling a lot, guy or girl, in my opinion, will be happier doing this as a single person because the chance of international romance is very high. Divorce rates are too high not consider the idea that marriage is not a great investment.

    However you spend that money, so long as it makes you happy and your ideas create a legacy for you, then life is heading down a happy path.

    I am of the mind, in a ultra realistic, every day world that if you can create a website that just generates you an extra $100 per week in passive income, you are in a great place. Then, you just need a few ideas, such as buying an ATM for example that does the same thing and you create the extra $100 per week in each idea to fund that $60,000 – $80,000 income. But then on top of that, finding a career that you are proud is a huge bonus.

    The idea of NOT working is not a great way to think. Even Richard Branson works. Rupert Murdoch, the same thing. It gives them drive and purpose.

    I am close to a new rich lifestyle. Getting there. I have a good career I love, I have one-on-one clients that pay $2000 each from selling on stage and my passive streams are building through publishing, online store and an ATM.

    But I WAS married, now divorced. And while never having any confidence issues, it has paid dividends because I am rarely lonely, even when single.

    One step on the ladder for the new rich could be to ensure that the partner you CHOOSE for yourself wants the same things you want AND is already working on their own plan, instead of riding on the back of your coat tail.

    All the best.

    Great article

    Great article John. No doubt, the banker that is making $250K is working so hard so he can spend more time with his family and friends. In reality, he’s spending less and less time with those he cares most about. Good read!

      It seems many people don’t put a value on time. This article makes you think.

    hey John,

    What a timely awesome post!

    This week Iโ€™ve learned something from my friend and partner, and from a great read: The Power of Now (Eckart Tolle) โ€“ thus, I promise to myself to get rid of all worries, fears, demons, and everything which keeps me a slave in the business, and in life.

    Break free from all boundaries and youโ€™re living in the now, happy and more powerful than ever.

    You can make more than $60k per year if you work 15 hours a week online!

    Hey John; this is more or less story of every struggler in this world. If we do smart work we can have ample time to enjoy our moderately huge income. If we work just to fill the time then we may have lot of money but no time to enjoy it.
    But I think there should be a way between the two approaches. We should have ample time and huge money both. For this strategic thinking is must to achieve such a wonderful life-happy objective.
    I am humble learner of your blog and learn a lot from your each post. Whenever someone claims that huge money can’t be earned with blogging I never waste a second in referring you as a blogger who wrote a new histroy in the world of blogging apart from a few your contemporary bloggers. Thanks a lot and stay blessed.

    I have this awesome book but I didn’t read it till now. I think It is its time now ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Great article contrasting the difference between time and money. And I appreciate @Greg Dean’s complimentary insertion. Your endeavor should reward you emotionally (first) as well as financially.

    I parked the wheelchair a year ago. Haven’t moved it since.

    As you know, my 80 hour work weeks ended 7 years ago with my stroke.

    I wouldn’t recommend a life-threatening, terrifying experience like that but I had to reevaluate my priorities and TRANSFORM
    Your readers can transform their lives NOW by taking John’s sage advice if it fits or wait until a stroke, heart attack, or cancer takes them out.

    Chill out, everybody, and maybe you’ll be lucky enough as me to survive.

  12. I love Tim Ferriss!!! I’ve read his book “the 4 hour work week”, one of my best books that I’ve ever read, I totally recommendit it, although I’m not such a big fan of the others books that Tim wrote…I also recommend his blog.

    Hi John,
    Another interesting article, I feel that it’s a no brainer I will definitely go for the second option. Why work your fingers to the bone when you can enjoy life with your loved ones.

  14. Noble says:

    Great post, as usual, John. I used to be the first guy in your post, working like crazy. I have all 3 shifts, and I have worked all 7 days. I missed out on all kinds of family and friends’ fun, social events. Now, I’m the second guy in your post. I get to focus more on my art and creativity now.

    1. Noble says:

      Typo: I meant to type, “I have worked all 3 shifts.” That’s multi-tasking for you. I think it’s time for me to take a little break. โ˜บ

    Hi John,

    Just as usual, I enjoyed the article. I’ve a balance opinion though, the hours demand of work isn’t the utmost factor for fulfilled life.

    I believe in a state of mind as regard the jobs. If the person is satisfied and find joy with the nature of a job, s/he ‘ll soon become part of the job. The responsibility is carried out just seamlessly.

    Though 80 hours/week job is lot time-consuming, if the worker desires the career and loves the job, it’s just taken as a hobby. The money involved is a big plus. I stand to be corrected, money at time is used to buy time. That is what we do when we outsource and send people on errand.

    Such long-hour worker can outsource much of the personal work and spend the little time s/he gets with the family.

    However, I prefer the second option. Why? I value life, and to me time is life. It is however important that most bloggers and internet marketers turn out spending long hour on internet. Just because being online has become part of them. It gives them joy and happiness. They learn, keep learning and be ome more satisfied and fulfilled.

    Thanks for sharing

  16. It is better to work 40 hours a week than +80 hours and earn a lot of money while getting a heart attacks or something and die rich. Interesting book, will try to find time to buy and read them.

  17. I’d choose the latter, but we do need Investment Bankers out there right?

    You are a genius how you tied together the story and the ebook!!!
