It's perhaps your best time ever to be building cash reserves for the inevitable downturn.
My little brother spent years as a screenwriter in Hollywood. His big claim to fame is co-writing credit for Toy Story 2, which has box office sales of roughly half a billion dollars. He has taken a meeting with Steven Spielberg, had dinner with Steve Jobs, and now teaches at UCLA’s night school.
A glamorous life, right? Then beware. Screenwriters do most of their work on spec, and fights to get paid are legendary. So when Chris Webb learned to become a screenwriter, he heard again and again this advice: Spend your second million dollars, not the first.
This might seem like a strange time to promote frugality, what with full-service remodelers in our 2018 Remodeling 550 reporting roughly 8% more revenue than last year and replacement contractors recording an eye-popping 41% gain. Actually, it’s a great time, for several reasons.
