"Ya gotta spend money to make money."
You've heard it before, many times. Probably said it yourself.
Well, like that farmer in Vermont said, "It ain't necessarily so."
People say it a lot to rationalize something inside them.
Rationalization. Justification. Excuse.
It's fun spending money. Done a fair bit of it myself. I have a brother who says that's about all you can do with the stuff.
But you can also save it. Like for a rainy day.
I started saving it, and I started enjoying that, too. Soon, I was enjoying the saving as much as the spending. I loved the independence it brought me. The safety. The security. The early retirement.
