Here at Investors in Mind and Money (IMM) we believe that the cornerstones of successful life are; a calm mind and sound investment philosophy. It inspired us to share our experiences in Training Your Mind and Building Your Wealth.
We are an engineer-couple living in Houston, Texas. We have one high schooler. After working 20 years in the field, we attained financial independence in our mid-forties. Both of us enjoy what we do and are still working full time. When we are not solving engineering problems, three of us visit National Parks and travel the world.
What motivated us to invest in mind and money?
Better health, meaningful relationships, achieving our full potential, and above all finding peace and joy was our motivation to start Training our Mind. We wanted to look beyond satisfaction from work and accumulating wealth. We wanted to gain a deeper understanding of ourselves and to improve our well-being.
Financial independence was our motivation to start Investing in Money. As engineers we are trained to solve problems with equations, data, and trends. We are also trained to manage and/or mitigate risk. The similarities between engineering and investing motivated us to become Do-It-Yourself (DIY) investors.
What is our approach?
Acceptance, reflection, and mindful living are the pillars in our journey to find purpose and peace. Unlike building wealth, “Training Your Mind” delves into intangibles. This journey does not have an “end”. We are still learning something new everyday from people and events around the world.
Saving and frugal living were part of our upbringing, but what to do with those savings was self-taught. Budgeting, saving, and investing consistently are the pillars in our wealth building journey to secure our financial future.
What to expect from Investors in Mind and Money
