I always find that when I need a financial break, my thoughts start to wander. I’m sure most of you have had this happen to you at some point, what you do when you need a break from the constant thinking while you’re driving. It’s kind of like a time-out from your day, to take a break from your thoughts and be still and centered with where you are right now.
One of the things that I found to be most interesting about breakpoint finance was the way that it helped me to stop thinking about a financial problem. Instead, I was focused on how to solve it. The fact that I could set up a simple spreadsheet and analyze it would give me something to work on, instead of worrying about how to pay the bills. It also helped me to let go of what I thought were the “bigger picture” issues that were holding me back.
This is one of the reasons why so many articles I read about finance say that they will help you to solve your financial problems – that you’ll come to appreciate the importance of your finances. But I think it’s also true that as you realize that you’re going to need to pay for things, it makes you think about what you can do to make sure that you’re getting what you’re owed.
I think the most important thing is to start thinking about what you need to pay in order to get what you want. So if you have a home that needs to be insulated, you want to get that done now because when you get that done youll be able to save money. If you have a place to live that needs painting, you should get that done now because when you get that done youll save money.
The thing is that most people don’t really need to think about how to get what they want. It’s like when I was kid I wanted a lot of things and I didn’t think about it. But for most people, there is a particular need that will change everything. And because of this, it’s important to get that done because when you pay that bill, it means youre paying for something you need.
If you live in an apartment, youve got to get it painted, right? But in order to paint an apartment, you have to get in there and actually move your stuff around. Thats why it can be very difficult to paint your own apartment. But that doesnt mean that you can’t get it done, because you can.
I have found this to be true in the past. It was one of the reasons I decided to open my own business. I knew that there was a good chance that I couldn’t make it as a professional painter. So I turned my painters’ license over to a friend that I knew I could trust. A few years later, I found myself in a similar situation with a friend. They had put together a business plan and were ready to go.
Painters are not as easy to get to work for as other types of trades. They need a license and are generally paid a flat fee for their time, but the best part about painting your own apartment is that you can actually do it. The only thing that puts it a bit beyond your reach is the budget for a contractor to paint it. This is less of an issue for a commercial property since you won’t have to pay for insurance and other fees.
The problem is that the only way you can get a contractor to paint a job is if you ask them to, which can lead to a bad situation if you don’t ask. In the case of breakpoint finance, the developer knew the property was worth about $30,000 to $50,000 and that the painter wasn’t even close to being able to cover the entire cost on his own. This left the developer with several options.
The first was to hire a contractor to paint the house himself, which would cost him about $1500. However, he figured that since he had a lease on the property, he could keep his own painting crew. In the end though, he was forced to pay more than half of the bill himself. The second option was to let the developer keep his own painting crew, but let the contractor retain the painting equipment. Again, he had to hire the contractor himself, which was another $1500.
