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.

Pay your taxes (sales, use, income, property, etc) and hire an accountant to partner with you.

When you know numbers and price yourself accordingly, you can be confident that chafrging anything less is stealing from your business or family.

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