Keeping things simple is key when it comes to making financial decisions. Before my wife and I had a clue, I was waist deep in books and other information about how I could manipulate our money so we could be financially independent asap. Whether it was in real estate, stocks, currency, or some other thing that I saw on midnight cable. I really was all over the map trying out new things.
A few years later, when we came to the understanding that things weren’t happening the way the books led us to believe, we slowed down and started to take one step at a time. The surprising thing was, our net worth started to go up. Funny how things began to work out for us when we stopped listening to the get rich quick stuff.
Not sure what direction to go? Try keeping it simple and have a solid foundation before you move on.
