The thing is, money issues are not always about money.
Money issues and financial stress are rampant, and part of that is because money is still the most taboo subject in our culture.

When you’re making money as an entrepreneur, it’s a different kind of game than if you have a job. There’s no limit to what you can make, and yet it’s all up to you.
