Episode Info

Episode Info: Beginning from our first podcast we have related fighting financial failure to the sport of boxing. When it comes to boxing, time management is of the essence. What a fighter does in his/her time before the fight and during the fight contributes to his/her success or failure in the ring. Championship fighters do not waste time.

The greatest asset you have in your financial fight, other than faith in GOD, is your earning ability. Every person can develop a set of knowledge and skills that can enable himself to add more income to his life. That means sacrifice. Yes I will use the S-Word here again...Sacrifice.
