📒 2. One Huge Advantage Rich Kids Learn Early In Life – Twitter Post by @CatchKristen

From the post:

When I was little my dad taught me how to fix a toilet.

‘You never want to pay $500 for something you can easily do yourself.’

And while the ability to do labor is hugely valuable, the resource I was ALWAYS taught to conserve was money.

It was part of our DNA on a single income.”

Sounds like a great lesson, but it eventually backfires.

Because one day you wake up, you have enough money, but you still:

  • Wait in line down the block to save 50 cents on gas.
  • Wake up at 3am to stand in line for a sale.
  • Spend hundreds of hours in spreadsheets optimizing credit card points.

Those old lessons on scarcity die hard.

But wealthy kids don’t have this problem.

They learn the lesson early: Spend money to buy time.

They see forms of leverage all around them.

The house cleaner, the delivery groceries, the Uber ride.

When you’re told from an early age to always conserve money, you’ll never seek out leverage.

And that’s a problem.

It creates tremendous burdens on your time and energy.

You don’t delegate.

You don’t spend money to buy time.

You don’t invest.

Everyone needs this lesson, but usually only rich kids hear it:

Money isn’t always the most scarce resource, often it is time.
