For Real? I Guess I’m The Only One

Working for the government had its benefits. Two-week long vacations, a crazy amount of sick leaves, and a suitable retirement plan. And of course, I can’t ignore the customary, annual pay raise. Most people tolerate jobs they don’t like just for those benefits. Some even become handicapped by them as they are stuck. The fear of losing their job or being forced into a non-paid leave of absence leaves them crippled; it makes it worth putting all their efforts into a 9 to 5 job for the rest of their lives so they don’t lose it. However, there are no guarantees of that happening.

The Greatest Advice I Have Ever Received:

When I was working for the government in NYC, my job entailed managing surveys as well as a huge team of people. Working as a supervisor, I thought my job was quite cool; I would delegate tasks, and assign my team members in the field to complete surveys. However, after reading ‘Rich Dad Poor Dad’, I started to get the feeling that there were bigger and better things out there for me. Basically, I had a passion for becoming a real estate investor, though I never paid much attention to it.
