Where You Should Invest


While there are plenty of areas in one’s life where cutting corners will benefit your bank account – allowing you to purchase the things you really want – there are some things in life that are really worth spending the extra dollars on.

Your mattress

You’ll spend more than a third of your life in bed so you’ll want to make sure it’s a good one. There is very little better than a good night’s sleep so don’t skimp here.

Your location

If you’re renting: How much of your life do you spend on the commute to work? Does the long drive enhance your mood or does the traffic make you moody? Living closer to work might cost more in cash, but it will be at a substantially lower cost to your value of life.

On the other hand, if you’re buying, the old adage “location, location, location” is tops. Remember, you might not always work where you do today, so think long term instead. Buy for the location and it’s potential return.

A nonstop flight

Whether you are travelling locally or internationally, there is no doubt that the fewer stops you make, the better you will feel when you arrive at your final location. The better you feel, the sooner you can get on with what you were meant to do in the first place. Stopovers can be stressful, layovers can be long and have the potential to be made longer thanks to missed connections and delayed flights, and being on a plane any longer than necessary is just not fun. Always take the most direct flight you can afford.

Kitchen knives

Cheap knives are ineffective and don’t last as long as a good quality set. Some sets come with a warranty and most can be sharpened again and again. A good set of kitchen knives is a lifetime investment.

For some of these you may need to hit online casinos like to raise the capital, but for most it means spending just a little more to see a far greater return.

When looking at a price tag consider not only the financial cost but the cost on your life.



My name is Derek, and I have my Bachelors Degree in Finance from Grand Valley State University. After graduation, I was not able to find a job that fully utilized my degree, but I still had a passion for Finance! So, I decided to focus my passion in the stock market. I studied Cash Flows, Balance Sheets, and Income Statements, put some money into the market and saw a good return on my investment. As satisfying as this was, I still felt that something was missing. I have a passion for Finance, but I also have a passion for people. If you have a willingness to learn, I will continue to teach.
