You’ll choose your life a bit more
When you don’t make much, you just kind of have to say yes to most money-making opportunities that come along. You can’t afford to say no to work. But when you start making good money, it takes more money to get you out of the house. It certainly takes more money to get you to skip a valuable life experience. For example, when you don’t make much, you may just have to miss your partner’s birthday party if you’re offered a paying gig that night, and can’t afford to do without it. But when you make more money, a gig would have to pay quite a bit to get you to miss out on valuable life experiences.
