Without question, the very best investment any of us can make is in our education!
In an up economy or down, investing in your own knowledge, your own education, your own ability to do what you do even better or otherwise provide more value in the marketplace will most likely yield the greatest returns. Your education is something whose limits YOU can choose to determine and it’s something no one can take away from you!
Whether formal or informal, an education, in the vast majority of cases, is also the best hedge against the insecurity that often accompanies change. Nobody knows for sure what the future is going to hold, which is exactly why we need to continually be LEARNING as a way to ensure we increase our VALUE.
If a man empties his purse into his head, no man can take it away from him. An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.” – Ben Franklin
