Newsflash: you are your own business. You are your ultimate business card. If you don’t take care of yourself and treat your life like a business, you won’t be good at any other kind. So this week we’re addressing some odds and ends: things in your life that seemingly have nothing to do with personal finance but can actually have everything to do with it.
Like making time to workout. After all, your health is your most important asset, and without it you can’t help anyone else. Period.
