Invest like a queen bee

Invest your money and your time like a queen bee: send your bees out in the spring to recruit more bees back to your hive in the fall. Repeat the process season after season, letting the number of bees grow exponentially.

An example of investing time like a queen bee is learning how to speed-read. If you spend 20 hours to master speed-reading, you can read books in 1/10th the time. Over the course of your lifetime, this 20-hour investment will save you thousands of hours.

An example of investing money like a queen bee is underwriting mortgages. If you loan out $10,000, it will be returned as $20,000. That $20,000 can be loaned out to return $40,000, then $80,000, and then $160,000.
