When you’re about to spend some money on a service (hiring a new lawyer to help you form an entity, hiring a web designer to help with a new site, etc.) – it’s easy to get bogged down with thoughts of “Am I paying too much?” or “Is that the best rate I can get?”
Instead of spending a lot of time worrying about this kind of thing, I’ve decided to spend a reasonable amount of time making a good decision, but then to proceed and think of the money spent as tuition. There’s always going to be a cheaper lawyer (or cheaper web developer, etc.) but every time I proceed with one of the activities, I learn and get experience to help make a better decision the next time. I think that’s called education.
When I think of it like that, it seems like money well spent. I can live with that.
