I am no finance expert but one investment I made that resulted to unimaginable returns is when I decided to learn from other disciplines other than medicine.
Our years in medical school has given us the opportunity to learn about the human body, its uniqueness and ways to keep it healthy. But this body belongs to a person who appreciates the arts, who has mouths to feed, likes to be appreciated and who belongs to a bigger world. There is so much to learn out there.
After residency, I took a business course, seminars on communication, marketing, writing, internet marketing, coaching, cooking etc.
Over the years, I have met teachers, internet marketers, IT experts, politicians, nuns, hoteliers, fitness instructors, digital artists etc. They are all interesting. I have greater appreciation of what I do and the world I am in because I have come to know and understand theirs.
Read on personal finance. Try photography or painting. Learn how to teach or make powerful presentations. Dabble on entrepreneurship. Learn from internet marketers. Study something that excites and interests you. Talk to different people. Ask them about their world.

Invest on yourself. Its worth every cent.
