If you're sick of financial advice that tells you to just stop drinking lattes (I don't drink coffee at all, yo), this book is for you. Rodgers encourages us all to expand to build wealth rather than to contract and scrimp forever.
She acknowledges systemic inequalities but also shows it's possible and vital to overcome them.
Learn more about Million Dollar Decisions, setting Boundaries, Pricing, and Systems.
If you provide any kind of service, I highly recommend this for strategies to quickly level up your income. If you sell products, there's still a lot of useful info, but the path to millionaire is less clear.
Everyone will benefit from reading up on valuing your time and setting boundaries. (E.g., your kids aren't entitled to your attention 24/7. Rodgers, mother of 4, shares a personal example of setting boundaries with her kids.)

Anyway, apparently contractor boss thinks the project is going well and that they will be done in OCTOBER.
Mind you, they started this process a couple months early and the permissions from residents whose yards they have overtaken/destroyed parts of run out mid-September. So, "going well"? Eff you, guy.
I've been watching them work and it's pretty clear there's no single person in charge or directing their efforts. There's a bunch of work they've repeated many times. Not a model of efficiency.
Now I know I don't have a background in construction work. But I did work in film for years doing physical labor, and in charge of crews, where urgency was prized. I prized efficiency because it made things faster and took less effort. Also days were 12 hours long minimum.
I'm just saying if they had a plan that wasn't seat-of-the-pants every day, they could get a lot more done in the 8 or less hours (including lunch) they are here.
I just want them to finish, sooner rather than 4 months later.
My ability to focus is shot from fatigue and noise 5 or 6 days a week which makes it very difficult to work from home.
As you may tell from this rant, I feel at my wit's end with months more to endure. sigh.
