We're All Investors

Posted on by Brian Hertzog

Whether we know it or not. Not just of money--of time, love, energy, etc. We start off like mini trees. As we grow, we provide more for others until we've got nothing left to give but a stump.  Allocating money is one way to grow rich, but if we see ourselves as investors in life, our limited time, fragile hearts, personal dreams. How "tall" will we grow?

Investing has a bad reputation because it's frequently in conversation with greed, fraud, and corruption. That's a narrow perspective. Most decisions are investments. I give or do something now for some future outcome. Better decision makers will be better investors.

It's not just for banks, Wall Street, and Silicon Valley. Investing is for everyone. We do it all the time, even if it's not with money, we just don't call it investing. Give now, even if you can only spare a few seeds. Many years from now you'll have a tree.
