Investing in Yourself is Just As Important as Financial Planning

We are always being told that we should be saving and investing our money, and it is so very true. Everyone needs to have a nest egg in case of emergencies and to be planning for the future, and for retirement. But we don’t hear enough about how we should also be investing in ourselves.

This article from Huffington Post titled Top 10 Ways to Invest in Yourself and Why It’s So Powerful offers some very sage advice for our readers, with concrete ways that you can invest in yourself. Financial planning is of the utmost importance in our lives, but investing in ourselves brings rewards far beyond the monetary.

One person who we admire for combining both self-investment and financial planning into a very attractive package is Jason Vanclef. Mr. Vanclef is the creator and president of Vanclef Financial Group. We love what Jason has to say about investing and the services of his company, “If your financial life were like a placid lake, where you could easily see the other side, you would not need an advisor or guide to help you cross it. We feel life is more like rafting down a winding river with rocks and obstacles in your path. Having a guide who spends their life studying the financial river can help you steer clear of these obstacles providing a more enjoyable rafting experience.  In other words, help you achieve the retirement you have always envisioned with as few scrapes along the rocks as possible.”

Jason Vanclef has created a scholarship to provide one deserving student $1,000 to invest in their higher education and meet their full potential. Below are the details about applying for the scholarship:
