Nine-to-fivers have become taxed watching the Elites living the life of grandeur, but what middle America lacks in reasoning is their significant role in the one percent’s wealth.

What are you saying? I’m saying put some respect on Middle America, the class of people who make the Elite’s wealthy.

While everyone can’t be rich, it doesn’t mean you have to be poor.

Being rich is a state of mind that does not limit one’s ability to live fabulous- regardless of income or class. You can improve the quality of your life simply by changing your mentality.

And this is where the bourgeoisie get lost.

“You don’t have to be famous to be famous.”

Middle America is conditioned to think ‘balling’ only applies to the One Percenters.

You can ball all day every day by choosing quality over cheap branded goods.

Train your eye to differentiate poor made hyped labels bearing expensive tags and you’ll save a boatload of cash, while looking like you shelled out a fortune purchasing quality fashion apparel with a less expensive price tag.

Don’t get it twisted, it feels good purchasing high-end products.

There’s something about famous logos and designer apparel that promote heightened confidence. Oddly, many corporations distribute less than quality merchandise and consumers continue buying the product, predominantly because the name behind the brand or because most consumers don’t recognize quality material when they see it.

Here’s an example of how the rich stay rich,

A manufacturer pays less than $30 to make the average tennis shoe. A celebrity or famous company adds a few colors, patterns, and designs, and suddenly the $30 sneaker is now marketed at $200 to $300.

A great tip for shopping famous is searching for labels at TJ Maxx, Burlington and Ross Department Stores that carry designer fashions at reduce price.
