Get rich quick schemes are everywhere.
From late night informercials touting real estate success to the coffee shop barista that wants to sell you on the magical pyramid scheme he’s caught up in, it just seems so tempting.
You see everyone else has it better than you. They’ve figured out the trick, and they’ll let you in on the secret for only 17 easy payments of $42.71.
Deep down we know better.
We know that getting rich quick schemes won’t work, but we’re still drawn to them because… well… being rich sounds great.
We live in an immediate gratification society and if we could all snap our fingers to be rich the resulting sound of the cumulative snaps would be a sonic boom.
Unfortunately, getting rich quick just doesn’t work.
