First Investment Wed, Oct 14, 2015
I'm on a bit of an investment kick, so I'm going to keep this investment series rolling for a spell. I had jumped into this topic looking for technical advice, e.g. how to pick stocks, mutual funds, etc. However, I came across a little snippet that caught my eye. That is: your first investment should always be yourself. That sounds a little trite, but the more I thought about it, the more I figured it to be true. What more important assets can you have than your personal well-being?
Take the time to do things that make you happy. Make an effort to improve your health and fitness. Educate yourself in new and interesting topics. Even if you're looking at it from a purely utilitarian perspective, a more content, healthy, and informed individual is better equipped to build and handle their wealth. Don't underestimate the benefits of investing in yourself.
P.S. Get ready for party hype!! <("<) ^( " )^ (> ")>
