In this day and age of the post-recession economy, I might argue that my sweat equity is worth millions! Some might agree with me without even putting up a fight. I haven’t lost my job. I haven’t lost my house. And under the right circumstances and with just a little more perseverance and individual effort, I can produce phenomenal results that actually put a few more dollars in my pocket or that rainy-day fund. Unfortunately, I’ve never met a banker who would cash me out for my sweat equity alone!
