Comment on Spend Less Than You Earn…Or Stop Complaining! by Paul Andrews.
You’ve got a great point here: feeling like you have control over you life is the whole reason we’re all trying to get control over our finances. It’s so easy to feel like once you’ve gotten some amount of money (be it a raise, or increased revenue in a business) that you feel like you’ve earned the right to spend it. It’s too bad most people don’t feel like they’ve earned the right to SAVE it. Very enlightening post, thanks for sharing!

Starting My Own Business…I’ve Been Here Before
Props for trying to get your own gig going. I’ve got lots of respect for those who try to branch out on their own. I think its tough for anyone, but even more so for those who have wives/husbands/kiddos/other family obligations. Also, unless you’re absolutely entrenched in the financial markets, seeing things like 2008 before they happen is not easy at all. Great post, thanks for sharing the story!
