Mad Money - Sugarbush Stoke Exchange

Thursday, September 6, 2012

A common piece of financial advice is, "Invest in yourself first." This usually means saving some money before spending any on yourself. But life is too short to not consider the other meaning of this phrase, which is, "Do things for yourself that keep you happy and healthy."

Money does grow on trees sometimes ...
Sometimes money grows on trees. Priceless beauty.

There are few things that can guarantee happiness, but a stellar fall weekend in the Mad River Valley or a powder day at the mountain can usually be counted on to bring a positive ROI. In today's volatile economic climate, sweet snowy smiles, million-dollar views and the sweat equity of hikes and bike rides are safer bets than many other investments.

Plus, these "self-stocks" hold their value extremely well over time, providing long-term benefits like good mental and physical health, stronger family relationships (play together, stay together) and a general sense of well-being.
