I have a couple of family members who gamble regularly. This includes casino trips and lottery tickets. Yet ‘I’ am considered to be the one who is bad with money in the family because I put some money into an investment portfolio. Why do people choose to play the lottery when pretty much anything else is a better use of money? That is what I will discuss in this article.
Eventually, I would like to be financially free. I am not talking about waiting until I am old either. The current system of getting a job and then becoming financially free only when you are too old to enjoy the freedom seems like a system that shouldn’t have nearly as much appeal as it seems to have to people. In this article I will discuss why people are still attached to the old system of traditional jobs and retirement strategies.
