There’s the business of being great at your trade.

There’s the business of being great at business.

Mediocre tradesmen make good money because they are great at business.

There are master craftsmen who make works of art and starve because they suck at business.

If you’re not better at the business side than the trade side, you’ll constantly be chasing every dollar, going deeper in debt, and living life on the edge of ruin.

I’m not saying these things to discourage you, but to point out what exuberance often overlooks.
