You know “Reach dad, Poor dad” by Robert Kiyosaki, don’t you? His idea is simple. Poor dad says that you should find a good work, or become self-employee. Rich dad says that you should build big business and invest money.
My dad has always said, that you should Invest (I) in knowledge. What does it give?
Investments in knowledge can help you to consult Big businesses (B), Self-employees (S) and those, who create Career (C). Such a policy helps to create horizontal career, which is not dependent on the rises and falls of businesses.
You know Ilf and Petrov rule, dont you? I tryed to check, if it is always true or not.
Suppose I’m working for 30 hours per week and I get 10$ per work hour. In this case I’ll earn 1200$ per month. If I worked for 40 or 50 hours per week for the same fee I’ll manage to earn 1600$ or even 2000$.
Besides if I’m working for 30 hours per week I can sell some time for freelance and get some extra money. So it seems that Ilf and Petrov were right with one slight exception.
EXCEPION: If I’m told to work extra time without having any extra fee, Ilf and Petrov rule is not working.
