Spend less than you earn. Simple, right? It’s a matter of managing input and output. Just like you’ll never lose weight if you eat more calories than you burn, you’ll never acquire wealth if you spend more money than you make. Just like you can either eat less or exercise to jump start weight loss, you can either try to make more money (side jobs, overtime, etc) or spend less to balance the equation.
