Why The Kardashians Can Print More Money Than The US Treasury by Sara Grillo, CFA, President at Grillo Investment Management

Aside from being very attractive people (artificially or not, let’s face it, they are great to look at which matters if you want people to pay attention to you), they are probably in the top 1% of salespeople. They’re world class marketers. Just look at Kim. She has succeeded in breaking the Internet on more than one occasion (regardless of the classless way she did it, she did it), and she gets more than half the world on a daily basis to pay attention to her bottom.

Take this to heart, everyone, because it’s showing you the way to massive wealth. You may not want to compromise your integrity like they have, but there is a lesson here. There is nothing more lucrative and more income-producing than being able to take your strengths, put a positive spin on whatever happens, and make the world want to watch. Make them intrigued, make them curious about some aspect of you that sets you apart. Make it so they can’t ignore you. And it’s nothing more than that.

Hopefully this advice can help all of you pursuing more prosperity, whether you are starting a business or looking for a job. Please stay tuned for future blogs coming up next week in preparation for April which is “double your income” month.
