No side hustles. No inheritance. No tricks. Here are 16 choices that made me rich. 1: I chose a high-paying career field (information technology), not liberal arts. 2: I cut out the losers. All you wanna do is drink? Bye.

That's not what makes us rich. 7: Rather than hating millionaires, I learned from them. I took notes. Rich people are great teachers. 8: I switched companies regularly. 15 to 20% raise every time. Easy money. ([View Tweet](https://twitter.com/SteveOnSpeed/status/1517122237173751810)) - 9: Exploited my 9 to 5. Got in early. Invested. Never complained. I got promotion after promotion. 10: Automated everything. Investing. Savings. Bill paying. Everything was on auto-pilot. 11: I didn't care if my neighbor bought a BMW. I refused to keep up with their debt. ([View Tweet](https://twitter.com/SteveOnSpeed/status/1517122239140966400)) - 12: I stopped the bar runs. Booze ain't cheap. Booze at bars is worse. 13: I prioritized well. Health > Family > Wealth. Without the first two, the third is meaningless. 14: I said "yes" to every opportunity, even if I didn't know how to do it. I figured it out along the way. ([View Tweet](https://twitter.com/SteveOnSpeed/status/1517122241116389377)) - 15: My wife and I had "money talks" every day. We'd walk the dogs after dinner and talk money. 16: Index funds. No day trading. No picking and choosing stocks. Index funds = Easy button to getting rich.
