If you don’t like finances, but like sports think of your personal finances in terms of a sports team.
When you make money, think of it like playing offence. The offence is the part of your finance that makes you money. Your job or business would be your offence, going out into the world to bring in money.
When you save money and spend less, think of it as like playing defence. You’re doing everything you can to save money and not let any money get out of your possession. (Like holding onto the ball)
You’re playing good offence when you get an extra job, get a raise, or work more hours.
You’re playing good defence when you say no to buying something you don’t need, and by saying no to salespeople trying to play offence on your wallet!
