Today we’ll discuss the perks of investing in yourself. I don’t know about you, but if I’m putting my money on anyone, it will be myself. Especially if I want ROI aka return on investment and then some. We often tend to help others and sit ourselves and our dreams on the back burner, but not anymore. If you’re reading this, it's time to take that leap into a new venture and gain knowledge along the way. Life is full of lessons and blessings, so if you fail, get back up and try again.
For example, if you’re a musician and you decide to purchase studio equipment you may have just saved yourself thousands of dollars. Think about all the fees that go into completing a record. You have to pay for the studio session, which comes with a basic mix. For a quality recording, you’ll have to pay extra for a premium mix and master and they can be very pricey. Trust me, I learned the hard way. Not only investing just that money, but time, learning the production process can bring you extra income. Who doesn’t love extra money?
That old saying, “scared money doesn’t make any money” is so true. This is why in these trying pandemic times you see so many people starting up new businesses, going back to school and freelancing. Don’t let fear of failure detour you from achieving your goals.
Making an initial investment in yourself, big or small, is basically believing in yourself. When you believe in yourself, anything is possible. Whatever your niche is investing in yourself, I am sure that you will enjoy the benefits of it all. It doesn’t have to be monetary, it can be time, consistency, etc. Comment below and tell me how you invest in yourself.
