An investment is a spend that you make to generate more money, profit, opportunity or growth in that business.
I guess you could even consider one as a meeting a current need and one as serving a future desire.
There can be a mindset issue around spending money. Some will see all spend as a cost and for others it’s all about investment and being focused on future return and value.
You will have both kinds of spend in your business the key is to recognise the power of the investments that you make. Remember investments come in all shapes, sizes and budgets! The point is to understand the value that investment will bring back into your business.
