Carlos Boozer is known as an outstanding offensive player. He is also known as a very weak defensive player.
His coach will often bench him during important times so he won't allow opposing teams to score.
He usually misses the best part of games, the end of game.
With money, as in basketball, defense matters.
Generally incomes rise with experience and education. Thus you can expect to earn more as you acquire industry-specific knowledge and apply it to your profession.
Outstanding financial stewards plug leaks, they play defense with intensity.
When spouses don't play defense they often miss out on family time by virtue of divorce or overwork.
They know that financial death can happen from a thousand cuts or from ignorance or from deception.
Tight defense involves tracking expenses, numbering expenses, competing with yourself to reduce and prevent expenses and eliminating current expenses.
Don't be left out of the most important part of your family's life because of poor defense.
