I was engaged at the time and my family wanted to help me understand this, I think they were trying to send me a message at the time. I never got engaged but I did learn to set up money habits that would help me when I did get married.

I am now married and my wife and I still use these principles. You set your retirement and savings on automatic and let it work for you.

I view this way of making money like a program that is running in the background of a computer. You can still use the computer, and there are other programs that you can run. That is the whole point of this.

It’s just one way to become wealthy.
