The Real Game is on the Balance Sheet
I used to think there was a flaw in your game. That borrowing money from the bank anytime I wanted was not a reality. Until, the banks started lending money virtually anytime I wanted for real.
Unfortunately, that's when I discovered the real consequences that come as result of my financial illiteracy. What's more, I discovered I had the lingo down well enough to be convincing, but lacked the sophistication to back it up.
However, instead of giving up, I’ve closed all the credit card accounts. Gone back to the game and now I pay more attention to working my income and balance sheet.
Because, it’s like you've said Robert, the real game is working the sheet, not moving the rat around the board.
