As much as I like to think that I am fairly money and business savvy after two grueling years of business school, I am constantly reminded of all things that I do not know. I feel like proportion of what I do not know versus what I do know is staggering.
One of the areas is investing. Sure, I have learned how to read SEC reports and I know how to calculate my CAPM, etc. but I actually do not know much about options. In order to change this, I have been spending some time reading Rich Dad, Poor Dad series. I know that Robert Kiyosaki and some of his teachings are controversial (like borrowing money to make money) but I do agree with him that knowledge is power. I am hoping that in about ten years time I will be able to retire and I know that stocks and mutual funds (whether I do options or not) will be a big part of getting me to that early retirement.
So I am trying to spend a few hours each day educating myself on this topic. I feel silly that even with me being in business, this is still an uncharted territory. Wish me luck.
