If you’ve ever seen a chart of the stock market, then you’ll know the Wall Street Waltz of which I speak.
The line on the graph goes up, up, up… before coming down, down, down. Then up. Then back down.
On and on and on and on and on.
Which is why I’m not a stock ‘trader’. But rather an investor.
And because the line (historically) has gone up over time, it makes sense for me to squirrel a few nuts away for the winter of my golden years.
But even if you “play it safe” by investing in ETF’s like I do, you’re still at the whims and whiles of the orchestra Maestro. Which is why I invest in something unrelated to the stock every single day.
In fact, I’ve been doubling down on this investment lately and it seems to be paying off.
Ok, ready for me to spill the beans?
If you want to beat the Wall Street Waltz and have peace and wealth for all your years, my favorite investment is:
Investing in your skills.
Yes, My Fledgling. Your skills.
It’s the one thing that isn’t subject to inflation (rather it undergoes compound interest as you get better at your skill, get better positioning, more demand, etc) or bi-polar beuaracrats.
In fact, highly skilled individuals often make more during down economies. Because people don’t have time to fluff around with mediocrity. So I suggest that starting today, you invest at least 1 hour every day into your most valuable skill.
And then I recommend you start selling that skill to others. Whether as a service, an info product, a coaching package, or whatever.
And if you have a list (an email subscriber list or a list of buyers) one of the fastest, easiest, and most reliable ways to make sales is via email. If you want me to write those emails, so all you have to do is upload them into MailChimp, Aweber, or whatever you use, then sit back and count the shiny gold doubloons, message me to set up a free consultation.
