3. 3 lessons:

3.1. Wealth stands for 3 things, none of which is money.

3.1.1. DeMarco says wealth includes 3 things: Meaningful relationships with friends and family Being healthy and physically fit Freedom

3.1.2. While money can only help you so much in building better relationships with your loved ones or transforming your body from unhealthy to top shape, money can buy you unlimited amounts of freedom.

3.3.6. Similar with good articles or podcasts. Think about the structure, how does it help you? What makes a great blog a great blog?
