Well, Shapiro talks about this A LOT. He frames it as... do these three things and you won't be permanently poor. Which is different than do these things and be rich. I generally agree with him because the statistics show this to be generally true, but not with you. :)1THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE

Nobody should say that getting a job is the way to get rich.
Getting a job is a necessary stepping stone on the way to making yourself rich, but as long as you're working for other people, they'll always get way more work out of you than they'll ever fairly compensate you for.
Don't work hard to make somebody else rich, use that paycheck to build your own business. Even a tiny one. Even if it fails and you have to get a job again. Work as much as you have to, but keep trying to eventually work exclusively for yourself.1THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
