Your Best Investment For the Future: You
What are the best investments for the coming year, 2009? Are they stocks,bonds and real estate, or are they commodities such as oil and gold? After all the stock markets have taken a big hit this year down some 35-40%. Oil has also rolled over or should I say fallen off a cliff trading down as much as 110 points from its high of 147 a share earlier this year. So there must be plenty of good bargains in all this mess, right? Well sure there are plenty of good bargains out their, but probably the best one that you can make first, is in yourself. That's right yourself. Starting your own business is one of the best investments one can make. Unlike investing in stocks, bonds, real estate and other securities where you are a passive investor you have direct control in your own business. Your the President, the Boss man , the Sole Decision maker. Most of us rather have someone else do the work for us, which is always nice, but this comes with a price. By investing in yourself you are allocating the cost in your business much like a large company makes. So before you go laying out thousands of dollars in anyone of the investments mentioned, think about investing in yourself first.
