19. Are You Investing in Your Business or Your Lifestyle

How do you know if you’re investing wisely?

The money was rolling in, the paychecks were rolling out, and the Karmie brothers were left with very little to bring home to their families.

Was it their spending habits, or was it simply the nature of the business. Most importantly, was all this sacrifice worth it?!

So often, in life and business, we are left to make significant financial decisions. Sometimes sacrifice is necessary, but determining where to draw the line can be difficult.  With today’s flashy marketing tactics, social media highlight reels, and the age-old “keeping up with the Joneses,” it can be easy to get swept up in emotion. This makes it even more difficult to decipher: is this decision a wise investment, a required necessity, or a splurge to feed my lifestyle and my ego?

Thankfully, this is exactly what Dale and Brian are diving into today. As they continue sharing their story, they elaborate more on how to make wise financial decisions.  They share their own experience and give practical advice on navigating the tension of investing wisely and spending frivolously.

Whether you’re the CEO of a thriving business or the CEO of your home, this episode is applicable across the board.
