When "looking smart" may be DUMB...
Love this post... And in particular, this...
"See What happened Here?
Spending the 600 bucks Prevented Jasper from having to THINK."
Wow, you're right...
Often people think that spending money is the "smart" thing to do...
When often, it's just the easiest - not the smartest!
I know of people - who have money - who "bootstrap" every business they start...
That means they start it with virtually zero dollars...
Instead, they use a little "elbow grease" to get things rolling...
If it doesn't succeed this way... On to the next one!
If it does succeed - then it's guaranteed profit!
Not easy to do, necessarily... but more likely to make a profit in the end...!
(While they start the business with virtually zero dollars... They're happy to plow any profits back into the business, so the business can still grow that way... But it's always from the profits, not from their personal cash in the bank...)
