Investing with Purpose: Capitalize on the Time and Money You Have to Create the Tomorrow You Desire by Mark Aardsma

When he was 24 years old, Mark Aardsma was fired in a downsizing. He had little in the way of savings. But instead of panicking and seeking to land a new job immediately, he sat down and began to invest his time and money differently. By the time he was 34, he had multiplied his limited savings a thousand fold and controlled a multi-million-dollar portfolio of businesses and other investments.

The notes he took as he made his idiosyncratic journey have now been expanded into a detailed guidebook for anyone aspiring to a bigger and better future. In Investing with Purpose, you will learn how to:

  • Use all your resources to build your future, especially your precious, limited time.
  • Avoid the emotional pitfalls that lead smart investors to make bad decisions.
  • Face your fear and take reasonable risks to capitalize on your best opportunities.
  • Apply your unique investment advantages--the only reliable path to superior results.

    Investing with Purpose will inspire you to use what you have to create the future you want. Whether your goal is to get rich, protect the rainforest, or just improve the neighborhood, this book will help you get there.

    Mark Aardsma has written a very powerful book about investing. Using personal experience and insight, he has created a valuable source of information on the questions we all need to ask ourselves about what kind of life we want to lead, and how we intend to achieve that life. His stories are told with vivid details, and the illustrations help bring the stories and ideas together in a way that is easy for everyone to understand. This is not your average investment book, if you want a different view on how you should step back and take a look at how you have been thinking about investment, this book is for you!

In a highly engaging manner, Mark Aardsma provides practical and proven approaches to creating a fulfilling life and pursuing your personal vision. The life experiences he shares are full of wisdom and highly useful insights. I recommend this book highly.

    “Mark has written a book that all those who have dreams of investing, in the broadest sense, should read. He has used his own story in a very vulnerable way to show the way for those who desire to do more with their lives, both personally and economically.” Greg Campbell, former EVP Coldwell Banker Corporation and author of The Surprising Power of the Coil.
