If Money is a “river” of wealth, your Value as a person is the “source” from which the channel of river flows. Then, your network of friends is your “leverage”.
You increase your wealth, not by pumping more water into the river, but by increasing the width and depth of your value or worth as a person.
By investing in your personal development and working on your Financial Literacy, you literally open yourself up to money making ideas which when implemented automatically leads to wealth creation.
You build a good leverage by making friends with people on the same mission as you and encouraging yourselves along the way.
