What is your 9-5 job actually costing you? Before I left the corporate world 12 years ago to run my own businesses (and work from home), I was spending: 🕰 750 hours/year commuting to an office. 🚗 13,000 miles/year on California freeways for that commute. ⛽️ $3,000/year on fuel. 💰 About $10,000/year for other expenses like meals, coffee, new clothing, dry cleaning, vehicle maintenance and repair, various services, etc.
