This week Grant is talking about money, finances, and how you can simplify them to a digestible amount.
If you’re stuck at a crossroads you’re stuck at a maybe—you need to make a decision. You need to go as fast as you can in one direction, and if it’s wrong, adjust your path.
1. Income – How much came in?
2. Expenses – How much went out?
3. Net – How much do we have left?
“You’re kept from your genius and your potential because you’re overcomplicating everything.” – GC
The first thing you have to do is make a lot of money. Your parents taught you about expenses—use coupons, get discounts—and it’s a waste of time. You need a financial statement, a plan to make money.
Business is supposed to be fun—and it ain’t fun when you’re broke. You need to focus on the top part of your financial statement; the income. Get as many flows in as you can and immediately push that back out to build more sources of income.
