During our crusade to help others accomplish far more than they ever thought possible, I occasionally run into the person who wants to “complexify” the simple (I know I made up a new word – it’s one of my hobbies.)
For example, I distinctly remember a person telling me after attending a Financial Learning Experience:
“Well, of course this stuff works for people who have income. What about those who don’t have income?”
Ummmmm … Get some income? INCOME – OUTGO = EXACTLY ZERO is a fundamental money rule.
Another example asked by a person who told me that their financial situation was horrible even though they had excellent income:
“Well, I know that you said to ‘spend less than you make’, that’s obvious, but what else am I supposed to do?”
Ummmm … Spend less than you make! INCOME – OUTGO = EXACTLY ZERO is a fundamental money rule.
Sometimes, even the OBVIOUS answer is not obvious. Obviously.
