Reasons to Invest Capital Yourself

There are several reasons to invest your capital yourself:

  • Non-investors are losing purchasing power due to inflation and opportunity cost
  • People that give their money to fund managers (or bankers) often get bad deals and don’t even recognize it
  • Conflict of Interest: most fund managers/bankers only let you invest in assets where they can charge high fees (you lose)
  • Underperformance: most fund managers underperform the benchmark index (you lose again)

The bottom line is: they don’t care one little bit about you. They don’t invest their capital in the things they recommend to you.

That is called Skin-in-the-Game.

The question is: Why not take control of your life and manage your capital yourself?

Of course, uninformed Investors keep making beginner mistakes that

can be easily avoided. Try to learn from the best. I did the same.

Yes, it costs a little. But the best investments are actually investments in yourself (knowledge is power).

Most think that in order to invest successfully you must have 30 years experience, it takes a lot of time to manage your investments, etc.

All not true. I tested it on myself and it works. I tested it on others and it works. It is easier to manage your own capital than you think. And you can manage your investments with very little time. And it can be very rewarding. It is a disgrace that we all (me included) do not learn some financial basics in school. What a difference that would make. University degrees: you learn something but they don’t really help to succeed financially in the real world. I actually had to unlearn a lot of these things, and learn new things from first principles, in order to get success.

No complex math required. All you need is elementary school math, some common sense, and a willingness to learn. Society tells you the world is like X, in reality it is Y (totally different). It would shock you, if you would understand how our financial system really works! Again, it is easier than you think. If you learn and apply some of the things I know about investing. Life feels like you are driving downhill in a Porsche 911 Turbo, not uphill on a bicycle.

I put all that know-how in an educational online video program called Mastering Investments (MI). Here is some perspective on it:

  • Value of the program: multiples of an average university degree.
  • Price of the program: a fraction of an average degree.
  • Duration of the program: 4 weeks vs. 5 Years

There is no better return on investment.

Hope this is helpful to you.
