Are You Money Poor, Time Poor, Or Worse—Both?

In: Hard Stuff, Money Talk, Success,

There’s money poor, and there’s time poor.

In order to be rich in one, most people give up the other.

These two things are seemingly in constant battle with each other, pulling, tugging, yanking for custody. In order to have more money, you must give up the time to get it. In order to have more time, you must give up the money.

But what if you could have both?

Most people can’t say yes to that question.

But most people should be able to.

There are tools, these days, for getting exactly what you want. The Internet is not new, but it’s worth considering whether or not the way you use it should be.
