I came across this in a real estate investment form that I am on and thought it may help some of the new guys think about education, in this field and any other. I think it also refers to the mindset of learning to make money work for you by learning more about business and money itself. The path to wealth is not behind a mower, but by learning (education) the art of leverage. -------- enjoy. "The largest sector in America makes between $20,000 to $29,000 per year and our poverty level is at around $19,000 per year and this is what they are willing to spend each year on: Eating out $1,483 Alcoholic Beverages $247 Tobacco $324 Entertainment $1,517 Let's see $3,571 However, the average person is only willing to spend $95 per year on education! WOW what has more value eating out, alcoholic beverages, tobacco and entertainment or education? You tell me what you value more! You see if you take a look at folks who make $70,000 plus per year they spend an average of $1,902 per year on education vs folks who make less than $30,000 per year spend $95 per year on education Don't take my word for it see http://www.bls.gov/cex/csxann03.pdf I wonder who is the smarter group? This is why the rich get richer simply because they understand the value of education and time! " Somewhat eye opening?
