Profits v. Wages and the Part-Time Work Path to Your Fortune

Written by William Pauwels on June 4, 2013

22.   Learn to communicate. How to conduct meetings.  Keep doing it – again and again and you’ll become a master.
23.   Train, teach business skills, life skills.
24.   Inspire others: if I can do it – you can do it.
25.   See yourself and others as better than you are.
26.   20% do 80% of the business.
27.   You cannot carry everyone or even three. – One, yes. – Two, maybe. – Three, no way.
28.   Don’t expect a pear tree to produce apples.
29.   You cannot change people. Only they can change themselves.
30.   A little money plus lots of ambition will make you rich.
31.   Buying and then selling is expensive. Selling first and then buying is not.
32.   The most important goal in life is living a good life. Here’s how:
· Be productive.
· Develop good friendships. A true friend is someone who knows all about you and still likes you.
· Be a believer – study, practice and teach.
· Don’t miss anything – the game, the show, the music, the words, etc.
· If you live well you will earn well.
· Take care of your inner circle and they will take care of you.
· Always ask for God’s help.

[Working part-time is one method of working for your fortune. Working extra time and getting paid for it may be another – if you segregate the extra-time compensation and invest it in a business or in financial growth securities.  In my case, I always worked 60 to 80 hours a week and earned a superior bonus, which I invested. It formed the basis for my present investment practice.  The key is to use your part-time and/or extra time compensation to build your fortune.  Also recognize that 15 extra hours a week will still leave you with 64 hours a week for family, fun, etc. – WAP]
