It is your earnings that do not depend on your time invested. Creating an income independent of time requires a long-term plan and focused persistent work. We do not comprehend how time leverages wealth. Find out how to maximize the value of your time in earnings. Track your time daily; it is your number one resource.

His ideas are sure to provoke your own search in finding areas you are good at instead of focusing on the money. “Let go of the need to get rich quickly.” He clarifies terms like wealth, cash, money, yield, risk, assets, and liabilities. Assets are things that boost your wealth. Liabilities cost you wealth. Wealth is the measure of resources at your disposal. He advises your savings cover six months' living expenses.
