Invest in Yourself Rather Than the Stock Market

Over the past few decades, many Americans have lots countless sums of money in the stock market in their personal investment accounts, or in 401k. If we are to learn from history, the typical American should probably think long and hard before investing his or her hard earned money into a black hole controlled by people who have a sliding trust reputation.

Oil, commodity, and other types of trading are even bigger mysteries than the stock market. In my view, there is another great option. Invest in yourself!

Here is what I mean by that. Start a company or go to school to learn a trade that will earn you more money and with which you can do more good in the world.

My experience is with starting companies. I started Semantic Valley because I didn’t like working for others since I felt that I just was not learning enough.

After starting a number of companies under the Semantic Valley umbrella, I grew as a person (priceless) and learned a number of skills that I never would have learned before. I now have about 60-100{3b63f2b93addb01cd0650b04902555609b90507e3f2ce2f684711c3a8631e3e2} savvy in nearly every skill and department that a company might have or ever need. I now just spit out startups left and right, and they all generate income.

It was a risk I took and it was an investment in myself. Now I am much more employable if I want that, and I am able to innovate on my own. But most importantly, I grew and matured as a person and I followed my own vision which I got to refine (and learn how to optimally refine). That has been the best investment of my life and I encourage others to follow the same path.
