Greetings, folks.
This morning I was busy with a couple different contractors, and a financial partner. I am remodeling two houses I picked up on the cheap, and am having to make some decisions regarding flooring and counter-tops.
My partner and I are trying to get the best price possible. More bang for our buck. I am satisfied with the proposals from both the contractors, but I was thinking I'd like my profit margin to be greater.

While sitting at home, crunching some numbers, making some projections, and shuffling around a couple "what-ifs", I heard the Holy Spirit whisper into my ear. The song, sung by Crystal Lewis, was playing in the background.

only fools follow gold
only wise men know
i’m no fool, you’ve changed my point of view

to be kind is quality that i richly desire
it is better to be poor than a liar

i no longer see things controlling me
you have spoken, i have listened
only fools believe in only what they see
the wise are rich indeed
