There’s just one thing that will cost you more than anything else over the course of your lifetime. It will cost you more than your housing and rent, food, kids, debts, healthcare, food, cars, college or any other big expense you commonly think about.
You will pay more in taxes than any other single expense throughout your life. Such is the world we live in.
This means you need to get good at taxes.
When I was a young man in my early 20’s, since I didn’t go to college (because it’s become a useless rip-off in 95% of cases), I had to educate myself. From age 17 to about age 25, I read over 600 books on success, business, customer service, investing, people skills, and numerous other things, including taxes.
