Robert Kiyosaki has said that
“Investing isn’t risky; not being in control is risky.”
I certainly wouldn’t say otherwise as the man is well known for his business success, however it gets you thinking doesn’t it?
We left a big part of our pension to some professionals who, doing their best no doubt, managed to put it in stocks that have diminished our capital by a third already. We have no option but to sit it out and hope the market comes back. But partly we are to blame.
We were very trusting and naive!
- We didn’t know what questions to ask – so didn’t.
- We knew less about the stock market.
The realisation that we have lost a third of our life savings was a jolly good wake up call all be it a bit late. We did realise our pension was rather on the meagre side but were rather in denial hoping it would right itself magically! Of course no control was where the risk crept in.
I have now taken courses and become much more educated in the world of investing.
I have taken a much more ‘hands on’ approach with our savings and investments.
We are no longer ambling aimlessly towards retirement.
We have a plan with structure and vision. It is workable and able to be adjusted.
We are feeling so much calmer knowing exactly where we are headed and how long it will take to get to the end.
Our education has empowered us with new found confidence instead of bleak despair!
With the help of Pete Carruthers, guiding me through the intricacies of Internet marketing and Robert Kiyosaki training me in the property investing world I embarked on both. I have an online business and I am investing in property internationally, with some network marketing thrown into the mix – All with a new found confidence and realisation that it is no more risky than leaving the decision making to the professionals as before. However it is a lot more rewarding and less stressful to be in charge of our own money / future.
Of course I use a bunch of people to work with. To help in the decision making you need to reduce the risks as much as is possible by researching and asking questions to make knowledgeable decisions.
I highly recommend it 😀 Why not join me?
Investing isn’t risky; not being in control is risky!
Go well till the next time
