Invest it Wisely

If, on the day you left school or college to start work for the first time, someone had presented you with a cheque for £12,000 and told you to invest it wisely because that was the only investment you would ever get for the rest of your working life then, without a doubt, some people would use it wisely and some would just fritter it away – after all, £12,000 is not really a lot of money for your whole working life is it?

Well, think on this. If you start work at 17 years old, retire at 66, work an average 5 day week with an average of 4 weeks total holiday per year then the total number of working days in your whole working life is 11,760 days.

Not a lot really is it? Make sure that you invest your time wisely!
