When you invest, you put your money into something with the hopes that you will recoup the costs of your initial investment, plus, make additional money (return on investment). So an important question is, has anyone ever told you that the greatest investment that you can make is in yourself? Yes, that’s right! Before you go on to learn about investment products such as stocks, bonds, real estate, mutual funds, etc., it is important that I remind you that one of your best investment choice is your education.
An educated mind is the investment that keeps on giving. While other investment products tend to fluctuate in value at times (having gains and losses), your education equips you with the necessary knowledge and skills that are needed to take advantage of opportunities to make money for the long haul, regardless of market or economic conditions.
Whether you choose to pursue a degree, a certificate, a trade or skill, as long as it has the ability to continually make you money in the future, then it is a worthwhile investment. Just be sure to pursue a field that is in demand now and will be in the future. It would not be a smart investment decision to spend money on a degree or certificate that will not be usable in the future.
