Managing my time
What is your favorite investment? Why?My favorite investment...
I bought Amazon back in 2000. I carried a lot of shame about how much I lost during the dotcom boom, and I stopped investing for 5-6 years. Missed out on Apple and Google and Priceline because I was afraid of making more bad financial decisions. So I bought an overpriced house in 2008. I finally got rid of the house and took the loss a couple years ago, but at least I never sold Amazon.
