Continue to keep DEBT down. If you need to go into DEBT try to keep it within your financial means.
INCOME: Obtain and maintain a career title that provides you with an appropriate income and if possible job satisfaction. It will be to your advantage to enter a career that offers you additional opportunities to master new emerging skills. Wherever you work just remember the COMPANY owns you for all the hours they pay you for.

If you were in jail you wouldn’t have those same freedoms. So try to be happy. Smile! It could be WORSE!!!
