Podcast family gather round. Richard and Angela are back with another stock market reality check. As investors, many of us know that the stock market fluctuates daily. That’s just what it does. It can be a hard thing to wrap your head around when you have a well-diversified portfolio, and all you see is red – the charts show downtrends, and the news is screaming at you. First things first, turn off the dang news and stop following the trends. It’s a beautiful thing to have that diversified portfolio under your belt, especially when things turn around and all you see is green, literally, because you’ll end up coming out on top.
With all that being said, we understand it can be hard to put your emotions away and cope with market meltdowns. So, in this episode, we will give it to you straight and prove that there is absolutely no reason to fear a down day. We have some charts some historical facts, and we will share insights on:
- How to make the most of a down market versus letting that type of market own you!
- Changing your perspective to see a market decline as an opportunity.
- Politics, because they have no bearing on long-term financial success. Never have and never will – at least that we know. How to not let your emotions get the best of you.
So, if you’re someone who is always anxious about the constant up and down or just can’t take the investment heat, it’s time to grab your headphones and take a walk with us. We promise you will feel A LOT better when you hear what we have to say. It’s time to stop losing money, so let’s get started!
