A fat investment portfolio requires work
This may be a tough pill to swallow, but I’m just going to come out and say it. You will not become wealthy working only 40 hours a week. There’s good chance you’ve read or at least heard of Tim Ferriss’s ‘4 hour work week’. I remember reading that book a few years ago. It lit my mind on fire. But it also twisted reality for me a touch. I became obsessed with working less. Working smarter rather than harder, but still working less. While you certainly can become a millionaire and at some point put everything on autopilot, it still requires a GREAT deal of bumping, grinding & overtiming.
