Stolen from Steven Covey’s book; Take baby steps… Start with the end in mind.
Add a piece at a time until you eventually get to where you are going.

I set aside a portion of each project’s proceeds to upgrade tools, or my shop space.
I made do with a circular saw and a straight edge before i could afford a tablesaw.
Used tools are a miracle as well. Every few years I get to celebrate a terrific find on a quality used tool that changes the entire dynamic of my shop.

If I’m bidding a job I know will need a speciific tool that I don’t have, I usually add a little wiggle room in the bid to purchase that tool. It’s a great way to expand over time.
