Waiting for the government to help you? Help yourself!How about a show of hands to this question. How many of you have purchased a lottery ticket as a way of solving all your financial problems? I'll bet for Americans that percentage would be a majority. I'll be upfront and say I've purchased a ticket too hoping for sudden wealth.
We all would like a quick fix to our money woes. Maybe the government will help? Well, I wouldn't count on it. Our government has so many programs they need to fund. Instead, how about taking a page from small business and start something for yourself. The excitement of running your own business is better than any game I've ever played and I get to spend real money as I earn it (unlike monopoly).
Sure, starting a business is a little scary but it's been done before and will be again. Just think about it, you only have so much time to live.
I am a CPA in San Antonio and provide bookkeeping, payroll, taxes and more. We offer a free initial visit and look forward to serving your business needs.
