The 2 most important ways to create wealth

    You have the ability to gain wealth through willpower and wisdom, without spending money on education. Don’t misunderstand me – I am a believer in educating yourself through reading, learning from others and taking risks.  But you can usually group everything you will learn into two categories – earn more and spend less.

For instance, I was texting someone and meant to say “I like that place.” Spellcheck typed out “Let Lebanon read.” Or just a few minutes ago, I was doing a search for Cash Crone on a web site, and the search function asked if I was really looking for the word “casserole.” Really?
