The true face of wealth - it's not what you might think

Get-rich schemes are everywhere.  And it's not a twenty-first century thing, it's something that's been around for a long time.  I fell for just such a scheme (an MLM named Equinox International) in the mid-1990's.  I went broke.

The majority of the time, the only ones who get rich are the ones selling it, the ones at the top.

Pop culture portrays success in the youth, glamorizes it to the point where everyone seems to believe that once you've hit the ripe old age of 25, you might as well quit.

Mark Zuckerberg is just one such fellow.

It's not Mark's fault.  He just saw a need in the social media, and filled the need.  He just happened to make a lot of money doing it.

The reality is that most people who obtain any high level of success are in their late 40's and early 50's.  Why is that?  Typically, these people spent their earlier years trying out different things until they discovered what worked.

But can success happen after you've officially retired?  Perish the thought.  Colonel Sanders started his Kentucky Fried Chicken franchise when he was 65, using a portion of his first retirement check to do so.

What are you waiting for?

Do what you were meant to do.
