A Responsible Mindset
Like most of you, I’ve worked on advances or expense accounts most of my career. I once had a boss, for whom I pulled cars to dealer auto auctions, who always gave me just enough expense money to barely make it to where I was going. When we settled up at the end of the week, I usually was down to a few coins. But I took pride in being able to make it work with what she gave me.
When her fledging business finally took off, she rewarded my thriftiness with a promotion. Most employers will notice when you exercise practices that help them become more successful.
Being frugal doesn’t always get you somewhere the fastest, but it will get you there with something to spare – and most of the time, the reward is worth the effort.
