“Knowledge is power. Information is liberating. Education is the premise of progress, in every society, in every family.” -Kofi Annan
The best thing I have ever received was a quality education and the knowledge that I can achieve my dream life. The one thing I didn’t receive after graduation was a six figure salary and a debt free lifestyle. I learned that the real world was a lot different than I had imaged.
At one point in my life, I had to use payday loans just to make ends meet and I was working two jobs. For many years, I worked my way up from small staffing companies until one day I secured a corporate HR position. The new job title is great, but I still do not have the savings or stock options I desire.
The life experiences I went thru taught me that I do not want to trade hours for dollars for the rest of my life. From a young age, I started reading books on investing and wealth trends. I aligned myself with other prominent professionals and businesses owners. That exposure is why I am very passionate about wealth building today.
Knowledge about life and your financial future can be gained in many ways. Everyone should take the time to invest in themselves. Try taking a new class, obtaining a skilled certification, updating your resume, or reading a new book. We can all take different steps to improve our lives today.
The rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer. One day there will not be a traditional middle class. I’ve learned the importance of having financial expert mentors and sharing their teachings with others.
