The Hardest Lesson Learned with Justin Donald

Time is without a doubt one of our most important resources, but how we spend it often doesn’t get the consideration it deserves. Time is a finite asset we pull from for every single activity we do in our lives, from lifestyle to work, and like any resource, we should be smart about how we invest it.

Our guest today is an expert on the subject. Justin Donald is the author of The Lifestyle Investor, a book all about finding balance between work and personal time, and investing with an emphasis on achieving the lifestyle you want.

His entire philosophy on putting lifestyle first has a fantastic intersection with the Profit First method’s focus on making sure that the owner-investor gets their share. Tune in!
