“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.

“How to increase your wealth one decimal point at a time:  Develop a financially valuable skill.  A financially valuable skill is a skill that will help you climb the wealth ladder one step at a time.  It is a skill that will put you in the mix whenever the opportunity to acquire wealth appears.

There are not many financially valuable skills.  In fact, there are basically only four: marketing, selling, coming up with profitable ideas, and managing profits.” -Mark Ford

“In normal times, two-thirds of real estate activity is organic, meaning people buy homes to live in them. Today, that ratio is reversed: more than two-thirds of all real estate activity in the country today is by either investors or first-time home buyers.  That’s not a recovery….  I can’t even imagine what the impact on the home market would be if every investor today that owns a home decided that it was no longer profitable or worthwhile, and decided to put it on the market.  There are literally millions of homes out there that are owned by investors, and if they decided to rush for the exits, it would be scary.” -Andy Miller  Real Estate Expert
