Haha yeah, I withdrew details on purpose though. It was a job for a music organization owned by my municipality, the money people gave us went to pay for our lunch and the rest went to the organization. We had fixed hourly rates at a solid 62 sek per hour which by extension basically comes from the government, they motivate the jobs existence through a) spreading happiness in the municipality (that was literally the work description) and b) giving us young people a job/some experience.

Now I'm raging. Not a real, productive job. Audience is forced, not voluntarily exposing themselves to the noise pollution. Spread happiness, eh? Who's to say all of the residents, business owners and their employees want to hear the music, let alone the same music and songs over and over again for days, weeks, or months?

The schmucks that give street musicians money usually don't stand around and listen to the music. They just keep walking.

That's Sweden for you. High tax but we don't know how to spend it the right way.

We went around to different places in the city every two three hours, most old people appreciated it very much as well as mothers and their children. Many people stood around for a minute, some for multiple songs before giving us money. I agree though that it's a stupid job, had to keep myself from laughing when my "boss" started motivating why the job is important for society to us (his motivation was that music is very important because it connects with our souls, it was desperate the way he presented it), but it's nice when I'm the one who has it. Not many people got a job, and most who did get one had to collect garbage all day, we were just seven who got to play music

I've always saved a lot even since high school. I was in college a long time and always had a part time job, never took any loans. I always saved whatever money I could and lived within my means, until I got into grad school and had to cut my hours way back and went through some of my savings.

After grad school I've lived in the same apartment to keep my costs low. I've spent quite a bit of money but no gigantic purchases.

Really no magic formula and I don't think I've lived that frugally. I just don't go out to eat a lot and try to pre-drink before going out to bars.

I was making jack shit out of grad school ($32k first job) so I still didn't spend much.

I had about $20k invested before the economy went to shit, so I'd have a lot more money if that never happened.

I don't put in more than 20 hours a week of real solid work. The rest is just 5 minutes of checking sales, responding to emails, etc. I started when I was in high school and built it up so it can definitely fall into the category of "side hustle"

Find a couple products, try them out, try to expand, I got lucky though.

I am asking you how as I am also inquiring to get rich.

300k saved up by 31 is nowhere near rich. In fact, I'm pretty worried that I'm falling behind.

The owner had a stroke, so I took over for him in exchange for partial ownership. It was in a dying market with almost no opportunities for growth and the facility itself required a major investment. I stabilized it, cut costs, and brought it back to being somewhat profitable so that it could be sold.

You should seriously consider reinvesting that, you're missing out on a lot of opportunities leaving that sitting in an account with measly interest.

I have $300/mo in bills and just upped my

This is all after tax.

The trick is making an extra $10k along the
way.

I never really experienced lifestyle creep as my income grew and still behave like I did when I earned a lot less, but for almost 5 years I was saving at least $5,000 per month (got to over $250,000 before I bought house) and now I'm only managing to save maybe $1,000-2,000. Due to fluctuations I've actually been breaking even for the past month - not even getting ahead.

I am disappoint. Now I know what it feels like to live 'paycheck to paycheck' and it's horrible.

People think making 6 figures is difficult, but in this day and age even cops and teachers make like 50-60k starting.

Money doesn't go as far as it used to either. 100k is like 60k in the 90s.

How the fuck are you going to turn 40k of savings into 140-240k by next year with an income of 80k. You'd have to save more than 100% of your paycheck.

Well you're kind of right. I don't know *everything* about direct response marketing.

But, I do know enough to be a god compared to 98% or so of businesses. I've been studying this stuff for about 5 years now, which is plenty to start consulting.

This is "direct response" marketing, as opposed to "image" or "general" marketing. The difference is that direct response is designed to create, well, a direct response from your prospect: to get leads and sales and money. Direct response is designed to predictably turn $1.00 spent in advertising into $2.00 in sales.

Image marketing is supposed to "get your name out there" which does very little for most businesses. (Seriously unless you have millions of dollars that you can't figure out what to do with, stay away from image advertising.)

It's basically the difference between a virtue signaling superbowl commercial and Billy Mays (PBUH) selling tens of millions of dollars worth of goop.

I've already launched a ~$35K/year business from scratch, to where the owner had to stop advertising because they literally have too many customers to handle. It's a really weird, obscure niche that's unique enough to identify me.

So I'm basically good to go, it's just a matter of actually doing it. And I don't have the energy or motivation to do... anything. It's like I'm depressed or have some weird metabolic shit... IDK. Hopefully doing keto helps with my energy levels.

I don't know why I typed all this shit lol. I guess I'm lonely.

Damn, I feel you. I lended money to my gf because she needed help and promised she would pay back with inheritance money but nothing.
Broke up with her because I hated her after that. I worked for like 5 months with nothing to show for it.

Hope you make your money back, I've almost recovered

I actually created a budget and paid off over $60,000 of CC debt last year. Don't autopay the minimum balance and forget about it for years, kids. If I wasn't stupid with my money up until last year, I'd have over a million dollars in the bank right now.
