“As an employee, there’s really only one way to get rich. You must first make your boss richer… and the only way to do that is to make the company much more profitable.

…begin as an ordinary employee and become an extraordinary employee. And after you’ve accomplished that, you become an invaluable employee.”

-Mark Ford

The additional side benefit of becoming an invaluable employee:  you would most likely be the last employee to be fired or let go if things get tough.  If you are invaluable, your company needs you.

“There are basically three types of salesmen: the bully, the charismatic, and the invisible man….  The best seller is the invisible salesman.  He focuses your attention on the product/service and the benefits it provides you.  Attending to your interests and reactions, he tailors his presentation to meet your wants, beliefs, and feelings.

When you’re in the presence of an invisible salesman, you may forget about him completely because you’re so excited about what you are about to buy.” -Mark Ford

One key feature of the private reserve strategy is that one builds a pool of funds from which to finance many purchases in life.  The benefit is the interest paid returns to one’s own pool instead an alternate finance company.
