Four Simple Steps to Becoming a Thousandaire

by Mr Juggles

Our Four Simple Steps to Becoming a Billionaire guide was met with great enthusiasm. For those who wish to start with smaller goals and then build from there, we now offer our Four Simple Steps to Becoming a Thousandaire.

Thousandaire Housing

  1. Go to college. Or not.
  2. Work a max of 40 hrs per week. Do not break this rule under any circumstances.
  3. Have kids with many women. Paying child support is fun.
  4. Treat yourself to a car you can’t afford. Gas inefficiency is a plus.
  5. Remember that money which you save will probably be stolen by those crooks at the bank. Spend all your money now to avoid future losses.

    I like that the “Four Simple Steps to Becoming a Thousandaire” actually consists of five steps.

    A subtle nob to the remarkable inefficiencies.

    You might want to check out today’s previous post, the link to offers some great advice WRT statistics:

    “…that’s an excellent point [about statistics] – and one I was thinking about as I wrote the post, but… I got distracted. I often wonder about statistics – and although I quote them here, I expect readers to do due diligence and keep an open mind on all things with numbers – they can be so misleading!”

    I often wonder about statistics too. Like, where do they come from? What do they mean? Will this shirt match my eyes? Did I feed the fish this morning? Will I ever be a thousandaire? I wonder how many thousandaires there are… I bet that’s a statistic!

    statistically speaking, four simple steps usually end up being about 5 steps about 50% of the time.

    Now you guys are thinking like future thousandaires. That’s what we wanted to see.

    In statistics you often have to do n-1, or in this case 5-1. 5-1=4. Problem solved.

    I’m in a finance class right now. There’s always a way to prove that NPV dictates spending all of your money *immediately*. I recommend it.
