Are you a Thousand Dollar Baller?

There’s a lot of hype around millionaires. If you read Budgets Are Sexy (which I recommend you do) you’ll see J. Money has a club, “The Million Dollar Club” that is. It’s a club I’m sure many of us hope to one day join. Ya know what though? I gotta keep it real and come to terms that I wont be a member of that club for a few decades. Sure. one day I’ll be in the Million Dollar Club, but until that day comes, I’m perfectly content serving as Senior Assistant Junior Associate Vice President of the “Thousand Dollar Baller Club”.

That’s right suckas, you ain’t need no proper grammar, flashy cars, or 5+ bedroom crib to join this club. In fact, a Ford Fiesta, one bedroom apartment in the quasi-ghetto, and a hint of frugality is all you need to be a member. Sure the millionaire clubs may be more snobby elite, but the Thousand Dollar Baller Club is nothing to be ashamed of.

According to CareerBuilders.com most recent survey, 61% of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck. That means 61% of Americans would be royally screwed if they lost their jobs. You definitely want to be a member of the thousand-aire club, because that means you can survive (at least for a short period of time) with no income. The ramifications of having no savings is shown in this highly scientific formula I worked up…

So, not only does being a member of the highly exclusive “Thousand Dollar Baller Club” make you one of the coolest people in the world, but it also gives you some stability. Can I get a booya for stability?

Too often we get so caught up in the future, that we forget to find hapiness in our current situation. Well not anymore kiddos, I am proud to be the first member of The Thousand Dollar Baller Club. Are ya like me, and get so focused on making that first million, that you forget to appreciate the fact that you are a thousand-aire? How long have you been a member of this “not-so-elite” club? If you’re stoked to have over $999 in the bank, drop me a line in the comment section below ’cause I want to hear you say “I love being a thousand-aire!”
