That pretty girl you look up to on Instagram, the one always posting ‘modeling’ photos? She’s broke, her mom paid for her breast implants and she can’t pay her own rent without assistance from her family. Her lip injections are financed, most likely with Care Credit. 6 months same as cash, right? Nah, she’ll count on Mom to pick up that tab too. She is a liability to everyone around her and counts on you for her self esteem. By far one of the best books I have read in my lifetime is The Millionaire Next Door: The Surprising Secrets...
