Man, part of me wants to focus just on this guy tonight. Feel I can get him done in an hour. Practicing discipline.
JJ painting, recently had lunch with dad. He's a handy-man. Self-employed for some 15 years now. As with every self-employed individual he has had his ups and downs. I wanted to ask him what were the largest mistakes he's made so I might have an idea of what to possibly avoid, or prepare myself for, when I shingle from my Honeywell 40hr/wk rent paying gig to full-time commission artist. In a word he answered: discipline. Which of course immediately went into money and what to do with 30% of your earnings. As he said 10% savings, 10% investment into your business and 10% to a charity that aligns with your business. He said to start now and develop that discipline. There's a larger picture I'm doing with these ebay models. Which of course differs from my father's advice. It's a long game and hope to share it in a post some months from now.
