Chicken before the egg, Rabbit.
Of course it would be great
to have cash on hand before starting my business. But, then, how do I come up with the cash in the first place? I am 32. Unless my rich uncle dies and leaves me a grip, I am out of luck. Being an entrepreneur has meant that I have not held a traditional job for more than two years at a time. Credit cards, running lean and a wing and a prayer is all I have built my company on.
Mr. Liquidity; up to now I have been bouncing my ever increasing debt across three or four credit cards with 0% deals. That has got to stop, however, now that "real life" (ie; kids) has taken hold of my once bright future. I have a few meager stocks given to me at graduation, but those sit idly by waiting to hiccup into double digits. And when that day finally comes, I might be able to afford a new monitor for my computer.
Until then, I guess there is always the lottery.
