I often refer to Thomaas Stanley's work. Just to keep my mind on track. After skimming my highlights it dawned on me that unless one choose the "right" occupation and is pretty good at it, the chances of becoming very wealthy are small.

How does one go about choosing the correct occupation?

Devil's advocate-

I love to ride the back of garbage trucks and empty folk's garbage in it.

I'm not sure this will make me rich.

Try for 'happy'. It's much nicer than just rich.

Or perhaps you need to define "rich".

It could if you started a private company offering competitive rates on garbage pick up to areas not included in municipal waste collection. Ever here of Mr. Rubbish?

Hey, it's exactly these kinds of necessary, albeit undesirable, services that *do* make money. I work somewhat with waste treatment plants, and those septic pumpers and treaters have quite the money-making machine going. Another "plus" about jobs like this--no fancy clothes that need dry cleaning, no appearances to keep up, no fancy car to drive...I wouldn't at all be surprised if many of these folks were millionaires next door.

Actually, if you truly love it, you may want to improve on it or change it, eventually opening your own business... making a great income for you.

Anything you love can be turned into income... you just have to love it enough and have a vision for the possibilities.
