I would imagine if you’re an nba rookie you could still live a good life off that 25% between per diem, sh*t you get for free, not having a family or wife, etc

Props for this.


Someone post all the businesses this dude owns. Despite being entertaining as hell with Chuck, this dude is a solid business man and investor.
He gets props for the business success but this n*gga is not entertaining at all. He ruined the whole dynamic of NBA on TNT . You can't hardly understand anything he says and his attitude sucks. Someone told him he was funny a long time ago and he must've really believed it

maybe, maybe not...

the best thing at that pay scale is to pay off debts and develop an emergency fund/savings if you don't have it

no debt, some liquidity is the basis to wealth...

money is not the only or most important thing

but you gotta stack up

money only a concern to those who don't got it

they gotta spend every second worrying bout it...

those with it have freedom/options

Id be more impressed if shaq actually had businesses beyond car washes , gyms and restaurants. If he doing so well why take money to do corny commercials?
The commercials are part of the deal when he signs on to partner up with companies

You can never become "rich" / "wealthy" by saving money you earn from a decent/normal/average 9-5. In order to become rich/wealthy in the US you need big money to start with and invest in some form of a revenue driven venture. Unless you run into a big lawsuit or inherit a large sum of money and apply said funds to a profitable investment vehicle, it's damn near impossible to become rich/wealthy.

Yes you can buy property and eventually cash in, but it's your kids who inherit that property can become rich/wealthy after they flip your now debt free investment into a larger property.

it's mindset of money

just cuz you have money don't mean you're smart wit money

that's why athletes and lottery winners go broke

someone with a poor person's mentality with end up poor even if you give them 100M's

there's people making like 300k but spend like 300k a year

thus have literally no wealth...

you just have to start where you are

at whatever income level you're at now

start with paying off debts and saving more than a few months of emergency funds

read the automatic millionaire...

It's not about the mindset set though. If you making 18 million a year in salary it's easy for you to become a franchise king. Yes not everyone is good with money.

But when you have more than enough you need to live it is very easy for a person to go and invest it. Not all investments can be a winner but if you got more than enough you have a better chance of hitting a home run with your investments.

I doubt Shaq would have taken a 100k a year salary and turned into a 400 million dollar empire.

Exactly bro these dudes in here talking like it's simple. Trying to get rich by saving up some paychecks gone leave you dying still trying to get there. Unless you doing something out here that is bringing you in a lot of money it is not going to be easy for a person to become rich.

Most people I see become rich are making a great deal of money. I know a dude who a doctor. Yes, he has 6 figure income but he has a sh*t load of student loans.

If I want to open up franchise I need to have million-dollars cash on hand. If I was a pro athlete making 15 million a year that would be an easy investment decision. A lot of the things Shaq invested in would be easy.

Seems like his advice is better for his peers rather than the average person.

That’s literally the first thing he said, and the question he was asked. “For these young kids coming into a lot of money.”

Instead of focusing on his surface level words, use critical thinking and look for the UNDERLYING PRINCIPLE. Which is ‘Spend less than what you earn, and invest your money in profitable ventures.’

The average person could buy a 20 case of water for $5, then go sell the bottles for $1 each.
The average person could make $50 a week and save $1-$5 after bills and stuff.

The average person can do that but you act like people have a store or some means of selling products. If I go buy 5 cases of water now i have to try and hustle them on the streets. Which takes time and gas. It's not easy bro.

I am not saying you can't get there but it's not easy and the average person is either working to survive or just above water.

Its difficult to save. And I would try to do the right stuff, I have an older vehicle which I bought in cash, nice price on insurance, rent a room within a house...but then you go on the road, and my car has a problem or I get stopped by cops and get a ticket which also adds points to my record. My job says I have to have a clean record - no exceptions. I'm fired unless I pay my paralegal to f*ght my case. Stuff like this happens to actual people and it makes it difficult to save.

Facts bro.....

Only big money can make big money. Not saying you can't step in sh*t and get lucky, but a few
hundred or two saved every month can't bring you hundreds of thousands or millions.

The public needs to realize that Shaq and the other 1% needs them in order to continue to get rich. They will always talk that sh*t in order to keep the public believing that it's attainable and all they have to do is slave just a little it harder and longer for them. Talking about "hey, if I did it, you can also do it. All you have to do is just work a little harder and try a little bit harder".

Random....But connected

The "American dream" is the greatest ponzi scheme in American history. The "American Dream" causes 99% of the population to become debt ridden and a slave to the economic system all their working days and even after they are dead.. Snatching half of their savings via the estate tax and via debt collections. Your debt becomes your family responsibility after you die.
