I was watching an extreme sports broadcast, kind of a small car motocross event. One of the event winners was being interviewed. He said "The guys that are successful have learned how to stretch their dollars". It reminded me of some start up business owners who, because they had access to what they felt was an adequate amount of capital, didn't spend their money wisely. In the long run, they ran out of money just as they were figuring out what it would take to make their small business successful. I'd take this dare devils advice. Learn how to stretch your dollars even if you think you've got some to spare. This will help put you in the winners' circle.
