To finish and all who see you begin to mock you and say this man began to build and was unable to finish don’t build a tower without first cutting the cost my friend zig ziglar used to say if you aim at nothing you will hit it every time my friend john maxwell says a budget is people telling their money what to do instead of wondering where it went winning is
