The Three Faders Of Money, Time, And Effort

Money, time, and effort are all sliding scales (or faders, for my music people) that move up or down relative to one another. 

If you have a ton of money, you won’t have to put as much time or effort in. 

If you have no money, you’ll need to invest a lot of time and effort. 

If you don’t have the money or the time, you’d better have a burning amount of effort to post up. 

Next time you want to try something new or fix something old, consider the money, time, and effort faders to tweak your expectations accordingly.

Ps. Listen to “How I Built My Creative Entrepreneur Business” on Spector’s I Want To Know podcast. 

Pss. I think about these faders, and I all I hear is RZA telling Tony Touch “do your mix on that, make it a record.” t’s strangely fitting.
