With friends and family members getting laid off and the economy growing sour, I think a lot more about money lately, and how important it is to have a decent amount of this precious commodity if you want to live a certain lifestyle (like LIVING IN an apartment in New York or LA).
My trip to Las Vegas last week was enough to remind me what it is like to stay at hotels, eat and drink well, go to expensive shows, and have to pay for it! Even BlogHer will end up costing a $1000 dollars, right? How do some of you afford to go to a different online conference every other week?
I used to make fun of your constant advertising and pimping, but maybe you are the smart ones. Your main priority is to your family and self. What’s the point of doing anything if it isn’t helping you get front row seats to Cirque de Soleil?
Of course, I’m not sure I believe any of this — that’s the problem — or else I wouldn’t have to write this here making believe I do. I have a habit of writing things I don’t believe in an effort to force myself to accept it, as if I repeat it over and over, I will hypnotise myself into submission.
