When you’re working toward your dream job, most likely you won’t be making a lot of money. When you’re first starting out, you don’t need a complicated financial plan. This is advice that my lawyer friend gave me:
Finances are easy, just spend less than what you earn.
If you have financial stress, you’re more likely to give up on your dream job. So you have to be smart about money, and do whatever you can to get by. And that may include cutting back on your expenses.
If you can hang in there, the better chance you have to get to your goals, so you always have to be careful about your money. Don’t let financial stress make you give up on your dream job.
If you really believe in your goals, the sacrifices you make today will be worth it. Have confidence in yourself that you can succeed.
