Don't get in a position later in life to say: "I coulda been a contender. I coulda been somebody, instead of a bum, which is what I am." [Marlon Brando in the Waterfront.] Make smart decisions and advance in your career.
The person who thinks a job is possible is the one who is going to get it done.
Whether it's your job or your business, your career is the very basics of your personal finances.
