    but of course we don’t take much of the content of the Bible literally.

    In the end, there are two deliberate paths to wealth. Spending less, or earning more. While there's a balance of those two in any successful strategy, Sethi is definitely in the camp of earning more, with an apparent belief that abundance will befall you if you work hard and spend hard.

    I've been spending less, saving more and generally under the radar for almost three decades now. (Sometimes very far under the radar. ) I'd have to say it's working, even if it's not the most exciting lifestyle.

    Me too. I have missed you guys. I tried to sign on two years ago and couldn't, and figured I'd been banished, and then life got in the way again.

    I am, sigh, no longer a Bisbee dweller. Karen, Indianapolis, Bummer. Lol.

    No way! We're an old school styled diversity, equity and inclusion site, but in the literal sense not in the new fangled figurative way.

    Glad to see you back, you know you're always welcome here.

    How great to see you!!!! I agree about the spending less than you earn and flying under the radar.

    I would gently suggest that he might not have been the best financial advisor either.
