In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner Peter Voogd interviews author and self-made millionaire MJ DeMarco about staying above the fray when pursuing an unconventional career life. The pair talk about living according to a script that is outside of the comfort zone for many, or one that raises employees and entrepreneurs above a cycle of constant work and saving. According to DeMarco, working for the clock can build tons of constrictions into the day-to-day, often making it seem giving your time is the most important way to raising money. On the other side, DeMarco notices many people give over their money to investments and simply hope for the best after many years.

What does DeMarco suggest to not get stuck in a pattern of endless working? Thinking of time as not an enemy in making money but as an ally, one that you can passively monitor as it helps your build up resources.
