A kid in an overpriced boarding school, excessive mortgage debt with an equal amount of ball-wrenching Westchester property taxes, a moderately expensive car I barely drive because I take a 1.5 hour commuter train into the city at 5am and don’t return home until 730pm, a spouse who is anxious about what kind of silverware we use when our friends come over, an under-funded retirement portfolio full of overpriced annuities I’m too dumb to know anything about and MBA debt I’m still paying off when my youngest finally gets into community college. This my friends, is success. Ask your VP

Develiping multiple cash flows and having those cash flows cover your expenses and then able to generate wealth for you long term.

Being happy and STRESS FREE at work. Having enough money to not worry about next paycheck to pay any bills or any unexpected expenses. Not living with your parents, because you cant afford rent or a house/condo. Working normal hours 9 to 5 and a 15 minute commute.
