Show up everyday and give it your all because It definitely takes dough to make bread. I wish schools taught us more about delayed gratification and delegation. The key is to stack money and strike hard when an opportunity surfaces. Too often I see young people on a 45k income trying to pay off a 60k car that depreciates faster than the car's speed. Personally I won't buy a car if it takes me longer than 3 months to save up for.
