Lightbulb Interesting "rant" nonetheless...

In fact, he was a bit angry, that Richard Branson had the audacity to keep working. "Doesn't he have enough money?" was his angry exclamation!

He thought, people only work for the money...

Just a quick, rant, off on a tangent...

This is why the right mentor is important.

If the only mentors one has are people who see working for money as the goal of life, it's easy to resent people who clearly aren't playing by that script.

Now the biz-opp/pension copywriters certainly don't help with their persistent painting of the picture of the beach, idling away on the yacht, blissfully doing nothing.

But then again, the frequency of these ads suggests they must be attracting a certain demographic with that illusion

Maybe some people prefer comforting lies...
