Yes, I have a core value about money. But for me, this core value isn’t “be rich.” or have $X before I die. It’s to have true freedom.
Financially enabled freedom means not having a debt that can bite you.
It’s mental freedom to not be worried that the family won’t eat if something goes wrong. It’s freedom to jump when a lifetime experience opportunity pops up.
The trick with thinking about money- especially as an entrepreneur- is to balance your drive to win and your perspective on where you really stand in the world.
We all have an embarrassment of riches. It’s important to keep that reminder. That is freedom.
