One of the great things about
The Mariner
becoming moreand more established is theenormous amount of cash I getto keep from doing this labor of love. For the
rst couple of yearsit was
slim pickin’s
but now...well, you might say I’m on theproverbial “Easy Street”.Once things started to roll –money-wise, the
rst thing I didwas march down to the localdealership and pick out any carI wanted. On the Cerritos AutoMall lot, I saw it and I had tohave it. Knowing that moneywas no longer an issue I walkedup to the salesman and said,“write up the contract on that’98 Ford...I’m taken her home.”It was $5,000, but I didn’t care – I was a publisher and moneywas
owing, and they gave me 5years to pay it off.I’ll let you in on a little Marinersecret, and forgive me for beingpompous and arrogant about mycash
ow, but by the time yearthree and four rolled around, Iwas making hundreds of dollarsevery month. It was awesome. Imean, sometimes not everyonepaid on time, so when thathappened it wasn’t always in thehundreds, but lots of times it wasthat much.Not long after that I took on alittle side-work, which made meeven more hundreds and soon Iwas spending my winnings ontons of stuff including two-dayvacations over on the CatalinaIslands and Redondo Beach.It was sick – the Harbor Patrolguy would come up to the boatand say “how long you staying?”I’d rip out a crisp $50 bill, snap itloudly and say in my most richestand condescending tone, “Howlong will this
recracker keepme parked Howdy Doody?” The jealous worker would scoff at myarrogance and I would urinatein the water while he watchedand pour cans of oil overboardto spite him. I can’t lie - all thatmoney was going to my head.Today, I’m still rich, still makinghundreds of dollars every singlemonth, but I don’t
aunt it likeI used to. These days I justsmile knowing that if I have toput a half a tank of gas in mycar or dine at restaurants likeEl Torito – it’s easily done. Thelesson? Money doesn’t providehappiness, it simply rents youfreedom.
