If you cannot afford to invest in your own business while also investing in other assets that will hopefully produce returns in the future, you are doing something entirely wrong. It isn't an either/or proposition. You should be able to do both!

Reading the book "The millionaire next door" and listening to Dave Ramsey is the advice I give everyone.

My thoughts too.....Nice book and Dave's the Man!!! Good stuff!!!

As business owners, why in the world would you invest in someone elses business and not your own? Last year the business net worth went up over 200%. Can any of your stocks do that?
your joking right?

just smart to be diversified. Don't put all your eggs in one basket. invest in both. in fact invest in several different things.one thing crashes you have a backup plan. yes invest in yourself but also invest in other areas.
