in Finance

Thanks for visiting Capital Advisor. I frequently update this blog to cover various topics on personal finance such as investment strategies, financial products that you should buy and ones that you really should stay away from, financial calculators, emerging themes such as early retirement and financial independence, and much more.

The more I read about and observe the economy, the stronger is my belief that you should,

THINK hard about and then WORK on developing an alternate skill or two (something that’s not directly related to the type of work you’re doing right now). The skill that you value so much right now will be a commodity/out of demand before you realize it.

A few advantages:

  • More marketable skills — across industries/sectors.
  • Additional/Alternate sources of income — so critical these days right?

What do you think? If you’ve already worked on this, I’d love to hear a comment from you.

Vinaya,
Planning to get additional certifications like CCNA….
Always wanted to have alternate source of income in the form of rents…
But not been able to achieve it inspite of efforts…..
How about U?
Which skills have U planned to acquire?
And what other alternate source of income are U planning?

Yes, I totally agree with you. When needed, converting couple of my good hobbies into sources of income is what is on my mind.

I hope financial planing could be a great career. I am really inspired by your service. Though you are very very generous that you are offering free tips, knowledge and analysis. Hats off to you. God Bless You. Can you provide any such institute which could provide financial course by distance learning mode?

Das, what kind of course are you exactly looking for? I doubt if any institute offers courses particularly on personal finance. You might want to look at ICFAI’s website once.
