Strategies for getting rich: savings vs. skills

We all want to be rich. But few of us are ready to work at it. You know how some people say "I don't want to be rich?" Haha!

But recently, I've been doing better. One day I got a check from Google along with some other windfall cash. Walking out of the bank, smelling the crisp autumn air, I thought - hey, life IS good!
