What would happen to you if you were out of work for five weeks like me?Written by Chris Robinson
Three years ago someone loaned me a book from a series called Rich Dad Poor Dad. I have to admit my eyes were opened. I was in graduate school and I thought that an academic education was key to financial success. I was wrong. Today, I have three college degrees and I still struggle to make ends meet. In 2002, I was hopelessly stuck in what Rich Dad calls "the rat race" and I didn't even know it. I now realize that good grades and hard work DO NOT guarantee finanical success. In fact, in 2002 I began to understand that I was financially illiterate! I am still in rat race today and have over twenty thousand dollars in student loan debt. But thanks to Rich Dad, I have started a different education that includes paper investing, real estate, and business building.
I knew that it wouldn't be easy - learning about starting a real business, real estate, stock market, and increasing my financial IQ. I began my financial journey in 2002 - learning a ton along way but having little to show for it financially. I was still a student and worked part-time so I didn't have alot of "financial study time." I also didn't have much money. Most books I've read in-store because I didn't have enough money to buy them! Then it happened...
One Monday night in 2004, my skin began to tingle from my chest to my toes. Like a typical man, I thought it would go away. It just got worse...when I went to doctor a few days later they admitted me same day. It was a spinal tumor! It looked bad, at one point I was told that there was a 99% chance of cancer. Emergency surgery was only option. Thankfully, tumor was benign and surgery was a success! However, I was out of work for five weeks!
I didn't go to work so I didn't get paid! What would happen to you if you were out of work for five weeks?
