Welcome to Get Rich Quick’ish!
Before you read any further, let’s get something out of the way: this site is NOT in any way, shape, or form a get rich quick scheme, trick, method, shenanigan, doohickey, thingamabob, or whathaveyou. Got it? Good!
This fancy little blog is my attempt to talk about the “secrets” of building wealth and getting rich quick. Err, quick’ish. Quick‘ish is a better word because right now you and I probably have different definitions of the words ‘rich’ and ‘quick’.
To me, one is rich when your investment income is greater than your expenses. When that magical moment happens, you can quit your day job and live exclusively off your investment income.
Rich = Free, and damn I want my freedom!
The word ‘quick’ is more subjective. If you’re choking on a piece of food then you need the Heimlich maneuver quickly. Very quickly! Like right $@!%* now!
When I say you can get rich quick’ish, I am NOT talking Heimlich maneuver-type of quick. My definition of quick is more like you could have a million bucks within the next 10 years type of quick.
Hell yeah, that wouldn’t suck! And that’s pretty quick’ish, right? Well that’s what I’m thinking of when I say “Get Rich Quick’ish“.
The truth is that accumulating your fortune won’t happen overnight and attempting do so is a fool’s errand. The only ways I know of to get rich “quickly” (like Heimlich maneuver quickly) include breaking the laws of the land and/or the laws of probability. Don’t attempt either.

Getting rich quick takes time, but it doesn’t need to take a lifetime. You can amass a personal fortune in a relatively short period of time, like 10 years or less. Good news, right?

Get Rich Quick’ish in three easy steps:
- SPEND LESS THAN YOU EARN

That’s it. No secrets. Just follow that simple formula and you’ll be on the path to Get Rich Quick’ish.
