The world of business is always concerned about the return on investment, the bottom line. But, how often do we apply those same principles to our personal lives?
Do you place your capital in thoughts that serve you or into thoughts that bring down your bottom line?
Do you choose to engage in actions that help you to grow and evolve or actions that hold you in place?
Do the foods you eat and the movement you engage in support your body or do they cause it harm?
Do you spend time with people who add to your net worth or are they red item deductions?
Take some time to be conscious about your personal investment portfolio and make the needed changes to improve the ROI on your own life.

Excellent. Good thoughts here. Thank you!
When I saw “ROI” I thought ‘release of information’. Funny how one thing has more than one meaning.
I haven’t heard of that meaning:)
Very cool analogy! ROI is a good indicator in determining the ‘health’ or effeicinecy of a business. Especially when compared to companies with in their same industry (peers). A great ROI is built by leaders that make great decisions for the short & long term health of their business. Keep up YOUR great work! (sorry, I used to be a finacial advisor)
How cool:) You know WAY more than me, then. All I learned about business came from my AP Econ class (and club; I was a geek!) in high school!
I don’t know if I know way more than you…it appears I still can’t spell! I enjoyed Econ in skool and I turned into a geek in my adult life where (it looks) you turned into a ‘cool one’. But i can help you with your 401K or retiring rich: http://ourlifein3d.com/2012/01/10/tight-wad-tuesdays-we-all-can-be-millionaires/ 🙂 Have a great weekend!
I am completely ignorant about investing (a bit embarrassing for a math teacher). I’m adding this to my “to learn” list. Thanks!
If you have a Math education you are very qualified to do some basic yet vital investing. The time to start is when you are young so you have time on your side. If you have five minutes, ok 20 minutes, take a look at the link above to my Tight Wad Tuesdays. It describes a simple, auto-pilot way to invest that we have done; basically reinvesting dividends. We began it about 12 years ago and the dividends are starting to be nice. In 15 more years of reinvesting the dividends we will be set. Did I mention its easy? ~sorry this is one of my soapboxes. Keep up your great work!
You’re right; I need to do some reading on the subject. I’ve been hesitant because of the complete and ongoing financial devastation from my divorce. I feel like I need to make sure all of the financial mines have been discovered and cleared from the field before I make any moves. Thank you for your help and gentle prodding:)
