"When you are hustling and you get a major break, do not go for a luxurious lifestyle as it can dwindle your coins faster than a speeding bullet. Investment and stepwise upgrade is advisable lest you go back to the trenches."

"Omo! I need to frame this: "a hustling man's biggest enemy is lifestyle inflation".
