Your assets are frozen! You are a great asset to our team! My assets are kept separate from the rest of my investment portfolio. What does all this mean? What are assets and how do we best keep track of them in the present business world. First of all it is important to understand the word “asset.” An asset (n.) according to Merriam Webster’s Online Dictionary’s entry for asset –
- a valuable person or thing
- something that is owned by a person, company, etc.
- pl. the property of a deceased person subject by law to the payment of his or her debts and legacies
- an item of value owned
The in depth explanation of the meaning of asset explains that an asset could be a military personnel or weapon. A spy is sometimes referred to as an asset. There are many kinds of assets in the world. It is the dream of investors to find assets that have not yet been tapped by the general public and find a way to extract a maximum yield from said asset.
Well besides the fact that asset.com had already been taken and I wasn’t in the mood to come up with something quirky like “www.don’tletthedoorhityourassetsonthewayout.com” I thought it might be good to start blogging about assets on a monthly basis and see if we couldn’t come up with some nice articles about assets for each month. So, keep coming back for more posts on assets each month and you may be lending to the growth of this asset.
