Motivational Speaker Dave Crane - So Who Else Wants $86,400 USD EVERY DAY?
Be patient with me and I will get to the cash.
A bit of background first…
Some people ask me to meet them for a coffee or to buy me lunch so that they can pick my brains.
I can buy MY OWN coffee AND my own lunch and my brains have over 40+ years at the sharp end of entertainment to offer — so the answer is no.

- You can spend all of it.
- You can’t save it.
- The next morning the account will be restored to $86,400 USD regardless.
- This continues until you die.
Therefore, you trade your time for services.
Respect it and don’t let others disrespect yours.
- A year means everything to a student who failed his degree.
