Daily reasons to quit your job and go your own way - Because you take a percentage of other people's money

Daily reasons to quit your job and go your own way

Because you take a percentage of other people’s money

Your employers take a percentage of the money that passes through their hands.

No one misses it.

No one realizes quite how much it adds up.

For example, you offer a half-hour’s financial advice to a 25-year-old who inherits $100,000, who doesn’t realize that the 1% fee you’ll charge every year until she’s 65 years old can add up to $450,000 (assuming a healthy 9% growth and adjusting for 2% inflation).

You know that charging $450,000 for half an hour’s work pays you a good salary.

You also know that taking money from people who don’t understand percentages is not far short of theft.

This is not what you were meant to do in the world.
