Cash Money

“Cash is king” is such a stupid expression. I usually hear it in the context of fat cat Wall Street analysts discussing the assets of multi-billion dollar corporations, and I’m so used to tuning those voices out.

Which might be why I found myself in the following situation an embarrassing number of times this year: closing comfortable five-figure deals with a client in the afternoon and then walking 5km at night because I couldn’t afford the bus fare to meet up with my friends. Or raiding my pantry for a week while waiting for a cheque to clear, because I couldn’t afford groceries.
