What is the best money you've ever spent?

Updated on October 19, 2007

Hiring YOU, James!!

Some of the BEST money I ever spent was hiring YOU James as my website designer!! Although I am still learning how to navigate the amazing site you created for me, I LOVE what you did/do even more each day!!

Some other "Best Money I Ever Spent:"

Caring for a severly ill husband for eleven years;

Caring for an aging parent for nine years;

Caring for my little black cocker over twenty years;

Investing in myself, my soul, my health, and my own businesses all my life;

Giving back through donations and volunteer work at least half of my net earnings;

Maintaining a "Go to Hell" fund. (My dearest (now deceased) father taught me that as long as I have a little money set aside for a rainy day, no one can pressure me into compromising my integrity!! If a client asks me to do something that goes against my convictions (happens all the time), I am NOT obliged/tempted because I am in need of money. I can have the choice to say "Go to Hell!!" (happens all the time) (well, okay, in a nice way)

Blessings, Earth Angel

    I really like the idea of a "Go to Hell" fund. Interesting.

    I've never had much money, but I do have a nest egg, be lost without it as it is put aside for the animals I take in. as for the best money I have ever spent/spend .Nothing gives me greater pleasure than to go shopping and come home with lots of dog, cat and kangaroo food. It gives me pleasure because i know they are all well fed. i enjoyed your hub and look forward to getting into reading more of them. peace to you.

    This is a great hub. I'm sure James is a great asset and investing in oneself is perhaps the best advice anyone can give. Have a great day! :)

    A really nice hub again EarthAngel.

    Caring for your loved ones is caring for your self too.

    We gain if we give to those we love. We are giving love to self at the same time. Love is a doing thing.

    Thanks Patricia!!

    Yes, especially in this economic roller coaster, how we spend our hard earned dollars becomes even more important!! I, for one, encourage as many people as possible to invest in themselves!!

    Blessings always, Earth Angel!!

    Half of your net! I'm impressed. Of course if you made your "seed money" claim to the universe that nets you 10x :)

    What a nice tribute. The best money I ever spent was on my college degree, even though I will be paying this off for awhile. At least it will never go out of style or spoil like food.

    I agree, best money I've spent is what I donate to the Humane Society.
