      • I would like to see more people get interested in residual income so they don’t have to work their whole life way.
        We have way to many Americans living paycheck to paycheck with no savings and I believe some education about residual income could help solve this problem.

        Getting people to read these days is pretty hard because they spend so much time working.

        I’m referring to the working class people of course, factory workers and people who work in retail.

        I want to help the low income workers who don’t have higher levels of education.

        I just hate seeing people struggle to make ends meet when they don’t have too.
