The Road Less Traveled to Financial Security

3590829216_bdd73ebfa8_zThere’s more than one way to skin a cat. At least that’s what people say, even though I can’t now think of why anyone would say or do that. But assuming that’s the case, that’s a saying that is true across many different realities and disciplines.

Nowhere is it more true than within investment and personal finance. While there are some investment methods that are sold as silver bullets, stuff that’ll work for anybody, not every method of investment is fun or right for every body.

That doesn’t mean that these people are out of luck. It just means that they’ll have to find a different way to accumulate wealth. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to do that.

People Who Want to Get Money Soonish

If you want wealth, but can wait a little while, you may be the kind of person who’s willing to really work for it. This kind of person will do well to go get further education which will increase their earning potential many times over.

The best fields for making money right now are the STEM disciplines. Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics aren’t for everyone, but these are the fields with a lot of awesome careers right now. An investment in education is an investment in yourself. This is active investment, not the passive investment types that get people more only gradually.

You can also take care of your material needs in ways that don’t need money to sustain them. If you own your home and are able to pay it off, you will be able to live rent/mortgage free. If you cultivate good friendships, you’ll be able to enjoy life a lot without having to pay so much for it.

If you invest in health, through exercise and healthy living, you’ll be investing in longevity and the ability to live without high health care costs. As you can see, investment is about how you use not just your money, but your time and decisions. All of these can have a big impact on your future financial security and happiness.
