Consume or Invest in your business?
Did you ever read Rich Dad Poor Dad? When I was 13, I almost read the whole thing, but one thing Robert wrote still remains in my head today…
Buy a gum ball machine
Let me explain. In an effort to teach his son about investment, he encouraged his son to buy a gum ball machine instead of a toy. The gum ball investment would produce continual dividends to then buy the toy he wanted in the first place…Brilliant right? Of course I’m paraphrasing but the principal holds true.
If you invest in assets for your business, you’ll reap returns that pay longterm dividends.
In the spirit of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, where we all are being bombarded by hungry retailers, may I encourage you to take advantage of some great assets that have saved me, both, time and money in the thousands.
Unashamedly, in the spirit of full disclosure, there will be a benefit to me, but that’s not why I’m doing this. I’m sharing these assets because I use them everyday, and it’s worth the investment.
