When I was in the army, I spent 3 months army allowances to attend Tony Robbins seminar. The return was a resilient mindset.
After army, I depleted half of my savings to hire Stuart Tan, as my Internet marketing coach. The return was he connected me to multi-millionaires in Singapore, and I interviewed all of them at 21 years old.
When cartoon-based video salesletter first became popular, I invested 5 months of my earnings to have one created. The return was a high 6 figure.
So far, the strategy of spending to get OVER spending to have has served me very well.
