BIG’s Blog: When Things Aren’t Working

My dad had a different attitude toward buying cars. Unlike most people today who trade every three or four years, my dad’s attitude was, first, you always buy a used car, preferably one to two years old, and second, you drive it until the problems call into question the very soundness of the car.

When fixable things broke, you fixed them . . . but the basic car was sound. When the very basis of the car’s soundness was called into question and your family was put at risk, you got rid of the car.

When things aren’t working, when things are really broken down, that is precisely the time to shift to a new model.

What applies to cars also applies to fundraising.

You need a new model.
