Not that i’ve ever been ballin or nothing. It’s just that i’ve always seemed to be able to find the money for the things i needed. In fact, the times i’ve been hard pressed have always been the precise times that i stressed over money. That is, when i disobeyed my own philosophy.
That sounds cool and all, but you’ll need a plan at some point, right? You can’t keep living all willy-nilly by some chance that things will work themselves out. After all, we’re talking about prosperity, not just making it.
True, indeed. And as i move forward on my mission, i’m becoming more and more cognizant of the fact that, were i more intentional with the money that has passed through my pocket over the past several years, i could be in a much better position then i am now. Certainly going forward, i want to be in the best position possible.
i ain’t gonna front, though. When i think about how much money i’ma need to make off the strength of my talents, i be feelin a little something in my stomach. Fifty dollars for a gig here and there certainly ain’t gonna cut it. i mean, i know i’m slim, but a brotha still gotta eat at some point.
Either way, i know i can’t give into that feeling, because it sho’nuff leads to “taking a temporary job to get my bread right.” Next thing you know, it’s been 8 years and your bread still fallin flat! (More yeast, playa! More yeast!) Nah, i know it’s all in the planning, so let me get this right.
Over the next few weeks or months, i will be posting about different aspects of the financial planning game. Don’t look for expertise. Just look for some things i’m coming across in my research and planning that may help you as well. But please, please, please feel free to share any wisdom you may have. We in this thang together. Let’s all get “our bread right.”
