So far this week in our blogs, we’ve touched on several key aspects necessary to become a successful DIY 2.0 Investor.
- Knowledge – the importance of leveraging this new currency
- Self Empowerment – one’s ability to transform a choice into a desired goal or outcome
- Greed Risk – understanding its’ impact on your wealth and how to eliminate 100% of it
DIY 2.0 Investors recognize to achieve success, it’s not a one-time event, but a lifelong journey. Once you’ve committed to enrich your investment knowledge, understand the benefits of self empowerment, and realize the tyranny of the financial services industry and Greed Risk, there is just one more step in the process:
Do This – Take complete control of your financial future. Start today! It doesn’t matter how much time you commit, just commit some amount daily, weekly, monthly…whatever fits your schedule and lifestyle…and do it on a consistent basis! You might start by reading a short daily blog, listening to a podcast on your weekends and/or participating in an educational webinar monthly or quarterly. Once you decide to take control, stay focused on the future in front of you. You will gain personal confidence knowing your money is achieving your financial goals and not those of someone else!
Not That – Turn complete control of your financial future to a financial advisor and the industry. This is exactly what those working in the financial services industry strive for. Once they have control of your money, they begin the process of confiscating your wealth through all the ‘miniscule investment fees’ you pay (some knowingly, most unknowingly).
If you would like the potential to double or triple your wealth by retirement age, without increasing your savings or having to take more risk, you only need to recapture those ‘miniscule investment fees’ and put them to work building wealth for YOU, as a DIY 2.0 Investor.
