I am not a big fan of Mark Cuban, the owner of Dallas Mavericks, and a successful business man. But I liked what he said about “investing” in his blog.
In this changing world, it’s hard to predict whether the stock market will crash tomorrow, it’s hard to know whether we will have the same job next year, and we don’t know whether the gas will go to $5 or $2. But we can do one thing: consistenly improve ourselves.
Let me repeat myself one more time on another topic. The best investment you can always make is in yourself. If you want to secure your financial future, invest in your own knowledge. 29 dollars for a book is going to be a better investment than 29 dollars in commission to a brokerage 99 out of a 100 times. Being the best at something you love to do, is going to bring rewards, financial and otherwise that will far exceed what any stock or bond can offer you.
