Some Excerpts:

It’s not just about making money, but making a living.

The discipline required to maintain a business isn’t easy;
Make sure you pay yourself well enough to do the tasks you don’t like doing.

Charge enough to cover your time, operating expenses, taxes, and have enough left over for a profit.

Your clients are your boss, treat them well and they’ll be happy paying more for you.
