Professional Development: Investing in Your Profession

Talking about the importance of investing in things that give the highest rate of return: YOURSELF

Edward Gebel Photography

WHAT I’M WEARING:

Cape: Ann Taylor (old; but love this one for way cheaper); Shirt:  Banana Republic (old; try this) ; Trousers: J. Crew (sold out; try this) ; Shoes: Christian LouboutinSunglasses: Prada

I really want a Chanel Lambskin Jumbo Flap Bag.

The problem is they retail at about $4800. And the idea of paying $5000 (after tax) for a bag doesn’t really resonate with me. Now- if you know anything about Chanel bags, they are considered an investment since their value increases overtime. However, none of this justifies me spending $5000 on a bag with my current financial state.

Now- if I used that same $5000 to attend business and blogging seminars, the information I would gain would be so valuable to the growth of my brand that I could even be gifted a Chanel bag from a local boutique in the future.

Learning how to invest in yourself is a lesson you must learn quickly. And there are so many ways to invest in yourself. You just have to determine which investment has the highest rate of return.

Maybe its a class? Maybe its braces? Maybe its a new wardrobe? Maybe its a book?

What are some things you should do to invest in your professional self?
