There's always that choice you have to make between drawing money off of the business and reinvesting it. I think the reason a lot of start-ups fail is because they siphon too much money off rather than investing in the future of their business.
That is what I'm doing right now. I don't need the money. I just want to have everything I need so when I go full time I won't need to buy anything really.
