Welcome to The. Chick. Pea.Life.
I remember when a friend of mine was counselling me on how to stretch my grocery dollars so I could stay healthy & spend as little as possible, while I was building my newest idea.
I wanted to live as stress-free as possible, BUT I had LOFTY. DREAMS.
I LOVE dreaming BIG, and I LOVE dreaming BIG for you all, whether or not you have to mind your budget. In fact, I prefer minding your budget.
The world of product creation is waaaay more expensive than you can imagine, there are SO MANY THINGS TO SPEND MONEY ON.
Like. Holy. Cow.
So I feel ya. I feel your pain. And that's why I always start with an action plan, a general idea of what you've got to expend and we plan, plan & plan... to the very best of our ability.
It is an imperfect science.
As MUCH as I know ( hey 45 years in the trade, gets you a TON of cred, BUT you all keep thinking up ideas that have not been made before so it is a little like renovating, you don't *quite know what's behind that wall. )
So that brings me back to The. Chick. Pea.Life.
Take the time to set yourself a decent budget, review it, trim it, and live The. Chick. Pea. Life. There is a lot of nutrition in chickpeas, you don't always have to eat steak, save that for celebrations and to give yourself a break.
You can do it, believe in yourself, believe in getting to your destination in a healthier, happier way.
You'll thank me, and I'll know that I guided you as best I can on all levels.
Keep creating & tighten your belts in way that works for you!
