My father passed away when I was 22 years old. Still living at home, he was supporting my mother, my daughter and me on a $30K per year salary. This man had an amazing work ethic, worked for the same company for 28 years (worked the day he died), hardly ever missed a day of work, woke up without an alarm clock and would walk to work if necessary, all to support his family.
After he died, I began to emulate him. I got a job and for the next 10 years worked at least 60 hours per week. During that time, I was able to witness millionaires and how they worked. However, my salary for those 10 years combined didn’t add up to a million.
