If you’re like me, you have a side hustle or part time business along with your full time job. That’s just how it is for now. But we don’t complain because everything we’re doing is for a greater purpose.
And greater purpose or not, that doesn’t mean we’re not vigil about our future. Hell, that’s why we’re doing what we’re doing — the 9 to 5 for some employer and the 5 to 9 for ourselves.
But we should never neglect investing. And not just in ourselves, but actually building a portfolio. I have a 401k account with my employer and it’s doing what it’s doing right now given the market. But I also have spread my eggs elsewhere. I have a couple savings accounts and one of those robo-investment accounts.
I’m not quietly sitting on a million dollars, although that’d be nice, but I do have a cushion here or there should an emergency arise. And I have monies saved away for future endeavors. As a smart 21st century woman should. Because ladies, we don’t just invest in the stale employers 401k plan. We do, because if it’s a decent one, then we get some kind of match from our employer. But we invest elsewhere as well to control our future. I want to decide what kind of home we’ll buy and where because we saved for it. We’ll decide how big our busienss grows because we saved away for it.
When it comes to our money, we gotta look beyond what they’re presenting us and see what else we can do. After all, we don’t work this hard for anyone but ourselves.
How are you investing your hard earned money?
