I don’t need to tell you how hard it is right now to find a good place to invest your money. Yet every day you’re probably looking at your greatest investment of all, every time you look in the mirror. If you’re like most people, you are your greatest asset, and investing in yourself and your career are likely to be your very best investment opportunity.
Think about it. If you make $60,000 a year and you’ve got 20 years more to work, that’s an asset value of over a million dollars. For most people, nothing matches the income they’ll make or could make during their lives.
What if you could increase your earning power by 25%, or perhaps even 50%, over your lifetime? Those are some really big numbers! Or perhaps you’d like to change careers and do something more personally rewarding–something you’ll want to keep working at. So we’re not just talking about money here, we’re also talking about adding to the quality of your life.
Even if you want to continue working at what you do now for the long term, ask yourself.. is there something you can do to increase your chances for getting better raises or perhaps a promotion? To increase your value on the job market to get a better job somewhere else?
Only you can decide how best to invest in yourself. So if you haven’t given this a lot of thought, haven’t done your homework on this, I really think you should.
Hey, it’s your life. But to get the most out of it, please don’t overlook getting the most out of your greatest asset–that person staring back at you in the mirror every morning.
