why is diversification important in investing

Smart Diversification Vs. Dumb Diversification

Most investors understand the logic behind diversification. But not all forms of diversification are created equal. Imagine you’re back in elementary school, you’re in gym class, and you’ve been nominated the captain of your dodge ball team. Which kids do you think you would pick to be on your team?

Investing Vs. College

Let’s talk about investing vs. college. If there’s one opinion that gets me a lot of criticism, it’s my opinion about better things to invest in than a college degree. Now I’m not bashing college.

the rich mindset

The Poor, the Middle Class, and the Sane

That’s right I said it. Being poor or middle class isn’t just some fine and dandy way to live.  It’s a byproduct of flawed thinking.  I’m not saying you ever have to get to the point of being rich.  What I am saying is that most people aren’t poor or middle class because they choose…

buying low then selling high

Buy Low Sell High

Buying low then selling high is a basic strategy. If I get one more spam message about why I should be buying bitcoin, I won’t hold back on how totally backwards their logic is.  Think about it.  If somebody says you should by anything because it’s at an all-high, why would you think that’s a…
