- You spend from January 1 to April 23 devoting your revenue to paying taxes;
- After April 23 (we’re talking averages here) another 40% of your year is “wasted” in non-revenue-producing activities;
- Which means August 26 is your Fiscal Equinox; now you’re working for yourself;
- But you’re still not taking home the revenue you collect as profit; you spend another several weeks paying bills with the money you collect.
