The demonstration planned to save Big Bird’s paycheck and Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) government funding came about after the first presidential debate between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama.
Two strangers hatched the idea while talking on social media.
Curious about what Big Bird was paid, I found out that the actor Carroll Spinney who created
the character Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch makes $314,072.
Interestingly, also of sesame street fame, is puppeteer Jim Henson (1936-1990), creator of
Responsible for creating some of the best-known puppet characters of all time including Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and Elmo, Henson formed The Jim Henson Company in 1958 on the heels of a recession and turned it into a multi-million dollar company.
What made the difference between Jim Henson becoming a multi-millionaire with his puppet creations and Carroll Spinney staying stalled at $300,000 with his (and now in danger of losing his income all together ?)
It’s a question many people face…
…Why is it that you are stuck at some seemingly glass ceiling income level working your butt off–in danger of losing your job or business while your competitor is able to take multiple vacations a year and rake in millions?
Wouldn’t it be great to be like Jim Henson and create millions from your chosen business?
You’d stop struggling day in and day out trying to figure out how to break through to the next
level of income…
And instead easily make a million or more per year.
This means you could start celebrating and living the life you always dreamed of–no longer
stuck waiting for the timing to be just right.
Wouldn’t it be nice to finally break through?
The thing is whether you are making puppets, selling insurance, or even killing bugs for a living, you can blast through that glass ceiling to earn a seven-figure income.
In fact, the timing has never been better to become a millionaire.
With start-up costs being much lower in a recession than in boom periods and by educating yourself and positioning yourself for when the economic climate improves, you have an advantage.
Find out how to educate yourself so that you can blast through that glass ceiling you’ve been bumping up against and boost your income to levels you’ve dreamed of but not thought possible to reach.
After all, if a puppet maker can do it, don’t you think it’s about time you learned how to hit the million dollar mark too?
You will understand how it’s virtually IMPOSSIBLE for you to create any kind of wealth if you are relying on a job – EVEN if you earn more than $100,000 a year from that JOB.
