by Investing in Your Human Life Value
Today is the perfect day for me to post this blog on human life value, as it is my birthday. As we grow older we tend to appreciate our health and others more, and I want to share with you what I have learned.

The accumulation theory of compounding and the concept of dollar-cost-averaging are the basis for traditional financial planning and have been ingrained into our minds since we were children. These flawed methods of personal economics focus on the accumulation of wealth by consistently contributing to an account and compounding the interest earned over time. When we subject ourselves to this form of thinking we are limiting our human life value.
1. You’re in it for the long-haul.
2. High-Risk = High Returns.
3. The market has averaged 10-12% over time.
4. Work hard, go to college and get a good job.
5. Save money, get out of debt, invest for the long-term and diversify.
6. When you retire you’ll be in a lower tax bracket.
7. When you retire you won’t need insurance.
