Derek Sivers on budgeting…really.
It’s not how much you have. It’s the difference between what you have and what you spend. If you have more than you spend, you’re rich. If you spend more than you have, you’re not. If you live cheaply, it’s easy to be free.
While I earn decently, I do end up spending a bunch as well. I’m working on some more methods to cut back what I spend expense wise in the business. The biggest change in that for me was to use Profit First.
That may be the best business decision I’ve ever made in fact.
