Investments

I just read Mark Cuban's investment advice and am happy to say that within the next month or so, Carey and I are going to be opening a savings account with a pretty good interest rate. My original plan was to be able to do this after one year of home ownership, but we're going to be able to do it a little bit sooner.

I've never been one to get into all of the financial market stuff - though when I was an Apple employee I did do the employee stock program. That one couldn't lose money, and in fact, I tripled it. Had I held on a bit longer, I'd have more than doubled what I tripled! But hey, that paid the closing costs on the house, so I don't regret taking it out when I did.

I've always believed in the third (of three) item on his list:

Invest in yourself. Do the things that can get you closer to your goals and dreams. It won't come from a brokerage commercial. It will come from preparing yourself, working hard and standing apart from your competition. You Inc is the best stock you can ever buy… if you are willing to do the work.

Darn right.

  1. Can you say what company you're going to go with for your savings account?

  2. GE, of all places.
