- Ben Franklin said, "A penny saved is a penny earned." And that saying has come a long ways. It basically means that money that you don't spend goes directly into your pocket. And that's a good thing, right? Well, maybe. It depends on your situation. Growing up, my family didn't have a whole lot of money. To my dad, saving was essential to making ends meet. I remember he would fight for pennies back at the grocery store for incorrect prices on the receipt. He did what he had to do. And if you're watching this dad, I'm really proud of you.
But my point is this, in his mind, saving was the best way to get ahead. But it's not just about saving money, is it? So there's a whole other side to securing yourself financially. And it's the exact opposite of saving. Yeah, it's spending. And not just spending, but investing. The expectation of getting more in return than what you put in. Now, I'm not gonna tell you how to spend your hard earned money. You can do whatever it is you please. However, through this course, I want to reshape the way you think. Your integral philosophy on spending money.
You're very capable of financial growth and success, whether you make a $100 a month of 10,000, everyone's road is different. But you have what you need to gain financial success. You simply have to think about how to get the most out of every single dollar. But it all comes down to one thing, respecting the time value of money. You'll hear me say it over and over again, the time value of money. So this course isn't just meant for business owners or CXO's, or key stakeholders on boards of companies.
Even if you're a nine to fiver, who's rethinking investment strategy, or someone who's simply trying to figure out how to make better monetary decisions, you will benefit from this course. My name is Yash Patel and I love helping people to find their financial philosophies and saving habits. Welcome to my course on Investment Evaluation.
