Baller status is not easy to come by. But we’ll give you the inside track on how to become baller.
So your gear is fresh and your bank account is good. Now you are ready to move to real baller status. Now baller is a term commonly used, but often in the wrong context. You may hear your friends, colleagues, pro athletes, and entertainers tell you how much they are balling, but I’m not talking about them. I’m talking about the real ballers. These ballers generally aren’t flashy, and most people don’t know their names. These men and women are the ones always on a Forbes list and most importantly, they are all investors.
Now they didn’t necessarily make their money investing but they are all certainly investors now. See, broke people save, and I think they should, and hopefully you have saved too. You need to save, have that rainy day fund and get a comma or two in your bank account. But once you’ve reached your specific number, don’t save another penny, not one penny more. Let’s go back to how I started this. Your gear is fresh and your bank account is good. You don’t need to save anymore; you need to invest. Instead of putting more money in your bank account, start putting that money you would have saved into investments like your company retirement plan or a diversified stock portfolio.
If you are anything like me you want to be a baller. So instead of telling people you are a baller, start acting like a real baller. Broke people save, Ballers invest, period.
