ORIGINAL ARTWORK BY VISUALIZE VALUE
An “asset” as defined by Wikipedia is “anything tangible or intangible that can be owned or controlled to produce value.”
I think of assets in two and three dimensions:
Your 2D assets (knowledge, communication, relationships, reputation) are your offense. Investing in these creates opportunity to accrue insurance, or “defense.”
Your 3D assets (property, savings, investments, stock options) are that defense. They act as insurance against loss: fiscally, socially, emotionally, etc.
My defense game needs some work, so I’m working on my offense every day.
This email is a part of that strategy, and I appreciate you watching the game.
