1. Many people cling to their salaried positions for all they are worth, and place their hope on god’s grace and mercy if they lose the position.
2. Take any business with, say five employees – including the manager, and lay everyone off except the manager. Then take 90% of the business’s working capital away, and tell the manager that he must simply do without it. Then tell him, “Do your best. I’m sure you’ll be okay.”

I hope to raise a decent amount of money over the next six months with a schedule that looks something like the following: ten hours a day, four days a week; or ten hours per day, five days a week, three weeks per month; or five hours a day, six days a week.
One thing is certain: I will never again make the mistake of allowing commercial endeavours to become the focus point of my existence.
