Don’t worry, I’m not going to talk about the stock market.
Earlier this year I attended the Berkshire Hathaway annual shareholders meeting and decided I’m not interested in being an active stock investor (though I do use Wealthfront to passively invest).
No, I want to talk about some other investments that I’ve made this year.
On New Year’s Eve, I was on the beach in Florida on my first real vacation in three years. I was reflecting on my life and wasn’t totally happy with how I was spending my time or my current direction. I made a few resolutions:
Halfway through the year, I’m proud to report that these resolutions are all holding up. But that wasn’t an accident.
When I returned to Ohio, I started making active steps to 1.) discover how I wanted to spend my time and then 2.) get to a place where that was possible.
And I invested heavily in getting there. Here’s a short list:
- A personal coach
- An online community
- A set of digital tools for creating
- A course and community around MailChimp
- An alternative MBA program
Not including the various books I’ve purchased and read over the last 6 months, investment in the above totals $7,597 out of pocket and several months of effort in 2017 alone.
I am grateful for every penny and minute spent. And trust me – I’m not made of money either.
You can’t do it alone, and you can’t do it by following the status quo.

The best investments I’ve made in 2017 have been in myself. I invite you to do the same.
