WHY YOU SHOULD INVEST IN YOURSELF?
IT IS THE BEST INVESTMENT YOU CAN DO!
In finance, investment is the purchase of an asset with the strategy that it will generate income in the future. Most people invest in financial instruments such as stocks, bonds, real estate, and more. Do you know that you are one of the best investment opportunities you have available! Do you believe in yourself?
You should and you need to invest in yourself as the return can be much more than any other investment. What I mean with invest in yourself is take the time and money needed to skill yourself as a leader. Plan your next career move and create opportunities for future returns. Believe me this is possible, I helped hundreds of people in the last 20 years to not only jump into a leadership position, but some climbed up the ladder into top executive management positions with salaries of 6 or 7 figures.
RETURN OF YOUR INVESTMENT (ROI)
WE BELIEVE YOUR RETURN IS WORTH INVESTING
Let’s do some math here to understand what this means. You invest $ 189 in yourself in your future as a leader. If we depreciate this investment for one year, let’s assume it takes a year instead of planned 12/13 weeks to gain the skills, 2-3 months of learning, and 9-10 months to apply and develop yourself into a leadership position. A realistic proven scenario.
So what is your investment per day in your first year?
$189 / 365 days = $0.52 per day
- Let’s assume you get a leadership position in one year.
- Your compensation will increase by $500 per month, $6000 per year (not unrealistic for a leadership position, rather on the low side).
- Let’s assume you will keep that position for the next three years till you get promoted again, or your compensation will increase further.
So what is your return per day after that year?
$6000 / 365 days = $16.44 per day
So how many days do you need to return your investment of $189?
$189 / $16.44 = 11.5 days
Let’s summarize it! For an investment of ~ 50 cents a day for one year. You will get back your 50 Cents plus $16 for every day in your future. I am not talking about the additional opportunities you gain with becoming a future leader.
