7. Keeping Up Appearances
Going to expensive networking events when your business has hit the skids is not the way to put more money in your pocket. It seems like a great idea, but once at the event you just end up feeling envious of all of the success that surrounds you (whether they are faking it like you or not). The same goes for not letting friends in on your plight, in hopes that since they are rolling in it, they will help you find a job. You imagine that it will save money in the long run by investing in your future by keeping up your country club membership when you’re facing eviction.
