Basically most people wake up wanting to be better in many ways. The main thing, invariably, is to be richer. What separates boys from men is the execution of desire on the realist plane. The guys on this blog know how to do it.
One of the vital rules of this blog is to only allow posts from authors part of the 1%. $ 750,000 Net Worth does not look like a lot of money. In a Nordic country, NY, London and Tokyo you would fit into a ‘average’. The story is different in developing countries. With the exception of Brazilians, our audience is composed mostly of Americans, Swedes, Germans and Italians, so let’s assume a globalized scenario
To be honest, historically the pyramid is always the same. Economic systems change (feudalism, capitalism, communism, etc.) but the pyramid with broad base, tapered body and tiny top. Is like an intertemporal law. Leaving aside the moral and philosophical aspects – which are beyond the scope of this blog – let’s talk about the social pyramid from a financial point of view.
This is where the absolute majority of global society is. Obviously the distribution is not egalitarian. You do not find wealthy subjects under $ 10,000 in Singapore as you would find in Sudan. In any case, the bottom of the pyramid is overwhelming.
Here are the workers that the market finds easily replaceable. Mechanical functions, without the need for reasoning or creativity. Remember Titanic? This is the boiler house. Dirty, hot, uncomfortable and without any perspective. One died, another is ready to replace.
The difficulty will be great, because here the differentiation is non-existent. Most people do not have contacts or anything attractive to the market. You are playing in HARD mode. Some attitudes can be taken for you to get rid of this muddy area. Beginning with education and avoiding basic pitfalls like financed cars.

We go up one floor and things start to smell middle class. We found a car in the garage, a house financed, desperation to pay the bills and the constant fear of unemployment. Here we find workers with a reasonable degree of education. Those followers of the whole social book already known: flaunt what used the credit card to buy.
Thanks to this bracket that governments sustain themselves through taxes, after all the former class is extremely poor to sustain themselves and support the bureaucrats.

We begin to smell imported perfumes and experience the pleasures of new luxury cars. Paradisiacal trips mixed with the concern to send the children to the universities.
The standard of living requires a constant effort to income. And a turning point in the market or an amazing crisis can make a family turn upside down. Here are the professionals with recognized talent in the market and even small business owners.
In this range we have several pitfalls. As the standard of living is something that all humans seek to improve, when it is at risk of falling, irrational choices are made. Strangely enough, the biggest dangers here are houses that are out of reach, cars that are extremely expensive, and unexpected job losses due to a crisis (for example, a management position in a high-end company).

Financial independence is a reality. Maybe not complete independence, after all constant withdrawals and no income entry, turns a million dollars into ashes. But the need to work by obligation no longer bother, and a valuation of TIME is prioritized.
You have free time to do whatever you want. You can use it to study topics of interest, start new ventures or spend time drunk with prostitutes. It’s up to you. Usually the people who arrive here tend to continue on the journey, so time is generally well used for new sources of income.
We remember that the purpose of this blog is not to discuss the morality or philosophy behind the pursuit of absolute happiness. We only deal with money. If you need some metaphysical explanation for the pursuit of happiness, you can go to other blogs.

The Brazzilionaires want to know your audience better. We conclude with three basic questions to our reader:
A) Which floor are you on?
B) What risks do you see in your walking that keep you from moving forward?
C) What risks do you perceive as threatening and which can lead you downstairs?
