Book Review: The parable of the pipeline by Burke Hedges

Opportunities, unlike jobs.
Usually don’t advertise themselves in newspaper.
– Burke Hedges

Being financially free is something everybody dreams of right? But we all go the traditional way to achieve it, which is to do 9-5 jobs. But later end up realizing that a 9-5 job gives us scope to survive and save but never makes us financially free. This book helps you understand that even by doing your daily job, how one can become financially free.

This book puts the spotlight on the real facts of life. Showcasing that the money being earned in any of the job professions is based on the number of hours that you have spent. This means if efforts are not being given on a particular day, then you don’t get paid. And the money we earn is going to be over one day unless we make our money work for us and make more money out of it.
So in short, working a 9-5 job and making money, doesn’t matter how big your paycheck is, it is not going to help you to survive for long. This book helps you understand, how to manage your money and how you can invest it along with your time to become financially free.

To make a sustainable living it is important to make a source of income that can give you profits even when you are not working for it. Now, this can be done in two ways.
The first is to invest your money and let the money work for you and give you more money. This plan takes time and this is for securing your life after retirement.
The second is to invest your time and build a plan which takes a lot of effort from you in the beginning. You will need to sacrifice all your luxury of spending leisure time for the fun to working on building a plan which can eventually in a couple of years give you profit for sustaining without even doing anything.

Our daily 9-5 jobs can make our present good and luxurious but a pipeline building plan will secure your present and future.
But coming from a different perspective, both methods are important and both can be implemented simultaneously. It is important to follow the first method which is slow and takes a very long time but at the same time, you can start working on a side plan which will make your next few years exhausting but after that, life will be stress-free. Keep your eyes on the prize and work extra hours on building your own business. It is going to take all your efforts in the initial stage of building your business but it is going to give you all the leisure time you need in the coming future.
