The Pursuit of Happiness.
Greetings my fellow Fools, been awhile since I did a blog not involving TheFoxForceFiveContest. (Which has been way cool, much obliged to all the participants.) But I think I actually have something to say, so here goes nothin'-
Most of you know that I'm not a wealthy man, but aspire to become one someday . So when I invest it is with small amounts. I'm constantly dollar cost averaging and reinvesting my dividends until I build this monster of compound interest (which will no doubt lead to world domination, muhahaha!)
Now I've mentioned that I always save my change. If the clerk asks for $2.06 they get 3 beans and the janglin stuff goes in my pocket. (always amusing when they hear the kerplunk of the new change landing on the rest that I added during the day).Also I always make sure to set aside money for my KO DRIP. (blah,blah,blah).
Recently found a new way to save money for investing, and I'm pretty excited about it-
After a quarter of a century I was able to kick my carton of a week Marlboro red habit. I've tried in the past and never made it two days. This time I wen't cold turkey, called into work and just stayed in bed all day with the cold sweats. Been a month and I could'nt imagine ever picking it up again (the cravings are there, but you learn to ignore them).
So this is good news for my financial and physical health, extra money every week, not spending my final days attached to an iron lung. Win-Win situation.
I hope this is helpful to maybe the new investor reading this that thinks you need large amounts to invest. Or just thinks that investing is too complicated, and you really need a trained professional to manage you money.
Also hope this is helpful too any smokers out there that want to quit, but don't think they can.
If I can do it anyone can :)
Do you mind if I smoke?
Not at all, do you mind if I fart?
