Have you ever wondered how the wealthy made their riches in the stock market? Are you looking for additional ways to fund your retirement and/or college for your children? If you had $1,000 to invest right now, would you be confused about where to start?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then you may benefit from my tried and true advice, which I have shared with many of my clients over the years. This is one of three emails offering strategies for you to get started on your investing journey.

Think long … as in long-term

It’s important to have the right mindset when investing – and that requires avoiding the “get rich quick” attitude. Rookie investors have lost their shirts with this flimsy approach. Truly the safest and potentially most rewarding investment tactic is a long-term one that requires patience, which for many clients may pay off in the end.

Why long-term?

  • The long-term approach is designed to keep your money invested in the right places – like stocks, bonds or other assets matched to your needs – for a determined amount of time. 
  • Part of this strategy is to provide you with more ownership and equity in your investments by creating a diversified portfolio that provides exposure to different areas of the markets. 
  • The best part is you don’t need to do much to build wealth with a long-term strategy.
  • Most importantly, a long-term strategy is proven to help protect investor portfolios from market volatility over time.
