According to Entrepreneur Network partner Phil Town, it is possible to make a difference in the world, especially by how you invest and spend your money.
- Vote your values with your money. When you invest your money in a company, you are essentially helping a company spread its influence and message. A company’s success and ability to stay in business is reliant on its stock price. The money you invest is a reflection of the goals and values that are important to you.
- Be proud of the stocks you buy. Many people only think of their investments as a means to earn a return. In reality, your money is an extension of you and the causes you believe in in the world. As a beginner or small investor, investing with values in mind can make a noticeable difference. An interesting fact: Small investors make up 85 percent of the stock market.
- Remember that investing has the power to change the world. Town points out the stock market is a definitive force to the events of the world. There are companies, right now, who are changing the world.
