The Web 2.0 has transformed many things the past few years due to the availability, accessibility, and deliverability of information; but none more so than the ability to enrich one’s knowledge. Most business leaders and those working in academia agree that knowledge has become the ‘new currency’ of this economy and will continue to grow in importance. We couldn’t agree more and feel knowledge in today’s modern global economy will distinguish the empowered and informed from the disempowered and uninformed.
“Knowledge is that which, next to virtue, truly and essentially raises one man above another. – Joseph Addison
There is one area that everyone, at some time in their life, will participate and where knowledge can provide a distinct competitive advantage. That one area has to do with investing (whether you are just getting started, someone investing via your employer’s sponsored retirement plan, a seasoned veteran, or a DIY investor). If you’ve followed our daily blogs for any time, you know taking control of your financial future as an informed, self-empowered investor and enriching your investment knowledge means the difference between a successful retirement lifestyle and just surviving through one’s golden years.
Here is today’s Tip of the Week: Commit to enrich your investment knowledge, starting TODAY…you’re never too young to start!
This doesn’t mean start reading every book, article and blog or listening to every webinar, podcast and tele-seminar you can put your hands on. Just commit to partner with a company that empowers DIY Investors and one that allows you to enrich your knowledge at a pace that fits your lifestyle. Knowledge will quickly eliminate industry ‘noise’, Wall Street ‘hype’ and emotional decisions, and have you playing a winner’s game.
If you haven’t already done so, we encourage you to join our Facebook Fan Page and learn how to gain that competitive advantage. The choice is yours.
