STEP 1: Imagine that you are Person A

Person A = you run a successful business that employs hundreds of people. You and your family own several large houses and lots of expensive things.

Each month you earn 23 coins.

STEP 2: Watch this video from the perspective of Person A

STEP 3: Repeat the video imagining you are Person B and then Person C

Person B = you have a good job and live with your family in a comfortable house. You have some savings. You earn 16 coins each month.
