In our conversation we discussed the concept of human capital and how our best savings and investment is taking our profession and leveraging it. We also talked about the challenge of finding a fulfilling non-traditional career in the mountains, but that it may take flexibility, patience, and focus to find the right fit. Lastly, we dove into investment strategy and the importance of a slow and steady approach versus taking a big gamble with your hard earned wealth.
