Ladders of Wealth Creation💸
Wealth is an interesting concept. It means different things to different people.
For some it can be a large amount of money in the bank, for some it’s a high pay package, and for some, it’s being able to buy the fastest cars and largest houses.
To me, wealth is having the time and freedom to do what I want, with who I want at a time and place of my choosing.
This is wealth for me -
It’s taken me years to internalize this idea and start taking action on it.
But now I’m actively pursuing it. Pursuing this idea of wealth.
One of the biggest influences on me has been Nathan Barry, the founder of the email marketing company ConvertKit.
His essay titled - “The Ladders of Wealth Creation” is a transformational read.
I’ve read it multiple times over the last year. Just to remind me which ladder I’m climbing and how can I jump to the next one.
I have a print copy of this essay in my desk drawer😅
Here’s what the ladders look like -
In case you’re wondering I’m on the second rung in the second ladder.
Of course, I do sell digital products, but that’s not really a reliable income source as of now.
It will take time.
And I have patience. Tons of it.
Will get there.
Now, this is a long essay, that’s why it’s the only recommendation of the week. Take some time and read it in full. Take notes if needed.
Print it out if needed.
This is a fantastic essay, I hope you find value in it.
And if you feel a bit overwhelmed, don’t worry, just know that everything starts with side projects.
That’s why this essay wasn’t the first recommendation in this series, it’s the last.
