Malcolm Forbes – Making Money the Ol’ Fashioned Way

Malcolm Forbes - Making Money the Ol' Fashioned Way

” I made my money the old-fashioned way. I was very nice to a wealthy relative right before he died.”

-Malcolm Forbes

Money can seem like a difficult thing to achieve, but it doesn’t always have to be. Many people go out looking for their American Dream, and others still might find it landing in their lap. I’m sure we’ve all had that moment where we wish we had the wealthy relative to be nice to!

It does seem like the simpler option, doesn’t it? I’m certainly not saying become friends with someone simply because they have money. I feel that the general concept should be to be kind to everybody, no matter their socioeconomic status.

Don’t wait for your American Dream to fall into your lap, don’t wait for that one wealthy person you know to die, because that’s not really how it works. You may find yourself finding money in places you wouldn’t expect.

Seize the day too cheesy?
