If You Want to Stay Rich, You Need to Think Cheaper

Do you know anyone that got a pretty decent promotion and almost immediately increased their standard of living? They most likely went out and bought themselves a fancy new car (to fit the role of their fancy new job) and maybe even moved into a larger executive home as well. Instead of shopping at a discount grocery store, they begin to buy their food at the more upscale store down the street. Everything just seems to become bigger and better, so what do you think happens to their overall cash flow? Most of the time their cash flow (the money that they have left after the bills are paid) goes unchanged or even goes down a little! If you want to stay rich, you need to think cheaper.

Do you currently own a house of your own? If you do, then I would suspect that you own a lawn mower as well! Were you aware that you could be earning $1,000 a month with that piece of equipment? It’s the absolute truth! Let’s explore your options and start earning some dough!

How Much Could You Earn Per Cut?

As people are taking on more and more responsibilities at work and outside of the home, there are fewer moments to take care of the reoccurring tasks around the house, such as mowing the lawn, weeding, and taking care of the general landscape.

Last summer, my wife and I purchased our very first home. Since it was a foreclosure, there was some work to be done, and that meant that our lawn was severely neglected. Even when I
