cheers to the bus driver, bus driver man

woweeeee, big day at the office yesterday.

i have a newer client that came in with his wife. he's a school bus driver and makes a whopping 8 grand a year. his wife, who i had never met prior, was a peach and absolutely the brains of the pair. not that the bus driver isn't grand, he's a seriously nice guy, but just not anyone you'd threaten with a tag like genius.

anyhoo, they came in. he is investing 50 bucks a month with me. my antenna was up. are they high maintenance? i didn't know, i waited with baited breath to see if they were going to ask me to reallocate the 50 dollar systematic investment.

happens every day, so i shouldn't be surprised...but by the time he'd left, they had invested 50 grand, deposited a check for 75, and together they transferred in $750,000 from here, there and everywhere. dayum, even with 13 years in the business, i'm continually amazed at what people are able to accomplish once they set their mind to it. ANOTHER millionaire right under my nose, and i missed it. bad judgement will make you miss a lot of opportunities.

a little at a time, peeps. send your broker a little extra this month. and next. you'll be so glad you did. that's the secret to the bus driver's wealth and most that i come in contact with, they save every month, rain or shine. hay in the barn, peeps, put some hay in the barn.

Yep! That's how I became a SRF©. A little at a time. Paid myself first every month. Should I do a post on how to become a SRF©?

I needed that token of inspiration. Especially today. Thank you...
