Drinking Costs More Than Just $$
Drinking is not only damaging your income, but damaging you as a person. Walking out of a bar with a $75 bar bill hurts your bottom line and devastates your ability to save money for important things. The $75 you lose from 5 beers and 2 rounds of shots is meek in comparison to the amount of time you’re waste away.
Most states have a minimum wage around $15 and since you’re spending an average of 5 hours at a bar that’s $75 you could have earned. You could walk away that night with $150 if you think about it.
On the other hand if you’re a business owner then you have probably (if you know what you’re doing) set yourself up with a timeline of income producing activities.
- Checking Social Media = $0 per hour
- Emailing = $10 per hour
- Prospecting = $100 per hour
- Teaching Others to Prospect = $1000 per hour
Think about spending that 5 hours just prospecting for your business. That’s a cool $500 easy, but you have to deal with the delayed gratification. Many short sided people can’t deal with that delay.
Leave the 1 hour early and research on how to build a business. Watch this video for pointers.
