Do you agree with this statement and quote: “If you work 80 hours a week to make $100,000 per year, then you are POORER than someone who works 40 hours per week and makes $60,000 per year”
Poverty or Wealth (the latter being the inverse of poverty) has nothing to do with INCOME but with how much money you OWN.
In the book "The Millionaire Next Door" the author points out that many people who are millionaires actually have low incomes relative to their overall wealth. They save money instead of spending it on symbols of apparent wealth, and thus end up wealthy (owning money) over time.
Owning yourself is the ultimate wealth. And if you "have to" do something to stay afloat on a daily basis, you are not wealthy at all - not matter how much you make - but rather are a slave with very, very nice bling-encrusted manacles.
Sadly, most people don't get it, and think that "making more money" is how you get wealthy.
