10. Enjoy the taste of ramen noodles. It’s like filet mignon if you truly believe.
9. The coffee maker is the most valuable asset you’ll ever have. Make sure you give it regular tune ups and maintenance.
8. Your computer is the least valuable asset. Be sure to give it swift kicks and punch-downs to keep it in line.
7. Do yourself a favor and clean up the dust bunny piles in your home. Make them your pets so you’re not so lonely.
6. Take the money you save on clothes, deodorant, soap, etc and buy something useful like clothes, deodorant, soap, etc.
5. Always give your good clients a phone call once in a while. Hit one up for a date if you’re in a slow period.
4. Coffee and cigarettes can add up in cost after a while. Crack is way more cost effective in the long run.

2. Just because you don’t smell anything, doesn’t mean you’re not.
