It might take a more roundabout route – you put time into creating value, and you’re reimbursed later when people purchase the valuable thing you’ve created.

So then, we can draw a fairly direct line between your time and your profits. Even in a 9-5 you’re still not going to be employed for long if you don’t provide some sort of value.
