What can the super wealthy teach us about having a secure financial future?

The Thin Green Line: The Money Secrets of the Super Wealthy by Paul Sullivan. “Wealth Matters” columnist for The New York Times reveals the decisions, behaviors, and worldviews that lead to true wealth. For the better part of the past decade, Paul has written about and lived among some of the wealthiest people in America. He has learned how they save, spend, and invest their money; how they work and rest; how they use their wealth to give their children educational advantages, but not strip them of motivation. He has also seen how they make horrendous mistakes.

thin green line book

Firsthand, Paul knows why some people, even “rich” people, never find true wealth, and why other people, even those who have far less, are far better off financially. His book shows how others can make better financial decisions—and come to terms with what money means to them. It lays out how to avoid the pitfalls around saving, spending, and giving money away and think differently about wealth to lead a more secure and less stressful life. An essential complement to all of the financial advice available, this “timely…smart” (Publishers Weekly) guide is a welcome antidote to the idea that wealth is a number on a bank statement.

Paul and I discuss;

  • The thin green and the distinction between being rich and wealthy
  • Why it was important for readers to understand the difference?
  • The meeting he talks about in the beginning of his book with Tiger 21 members.
  • How the wealthy use debt strategically
  • The misconception on how the wealthy view taxes
  • The wealthy’s spending philosophy
  • How the wealthy teach financial literacy to their kids
  • and much more!

There's some key areas that Jason focuses on building his side hustle around that I asked him to share with you.

Selling on eBay
This is one of his favorite side hustles. He's been selling on eBay on and off for nine years. He started to get more serious about it in 2016. Since then, he's been able to grow a consistent side hustle income with it.

Jason also has a great course that I actually took as well. Check it out here

Selling Custom printed Shirts
I have fun on this as well. This can be fun with time and creativity for design. His focus is on three platforms which are Amazon Merch, Teespring and Sunfrog.

Freelance Writing
Freelance writing is another side hustle although he's not doing as much with his focus being on more profitable spaces i.e. ebay.
