Increasing your wealth over time is about more than making the right stock picks or always buying low and selling high. Too often, we see intelligent investors hamstring their potential for success by making fundamental errors in their investing strategy.
Over the years, we have observed the effects of fear, greed, lack of discipline, groupthink, and many other pitfalls that investors experience. Accordingly, we have compiled this list of seven principles of long-term investing. These principles are by no means exhaustive, nor will they guarantee investment success, but we hope that you will find them useful in helping you make investment decisions.
There’s no reason to sugar coat this. If you’re running a business and you have not taken the time to plan and protect your business and personal assets, good luck. In the present economic/political climate the small business owner is under direct attack. Ignore this fact and you – and your family - will feel the pain, and it won’t be isolated to your finances.
There are common mistakes business owners often make. There are ways to - intelligently legally, and proactively – avoid them but it will take a commitment from you. Initially all you need is 60 minutes. Less time than you spent in the restaurant last week. Much less time than you spent at any school event, party, golf outing, etc.
Time can be your best friend or your worst enemy; you choose.
So, if your business and family are important to you I urge you to take the time - 60 minutes - to attend my next presentation. Sixty minutes. No sales pitch. Just clear, common sense information. I can assure you it will be time well spent and I have no product brochures or binders for you to carry home and throw in the trash.
Few words better characterize today's financial markets than uncertainty. We believe investors need to adjust their expectations in order to adapt to the road ahead. It seems to be the nature of today’s markets to subject investors to price fluctuations and confusing global events that test emotional fortitude at every turn. Experience has taught us that successful investing requires discipline and the patient execution of a long-term strategy, most especially when it is emotionally difficult.
Just about everyone has a different opinion on how you should invest or manage your money. With so much contradictory advice, you may have a hard time confidently deciding what will work for your personal situation.
