How Should I Invest My Money
How you should invest your money is the topic today. We're going to review how to look at this from the big picture, and then apply it to the specific industry you want. The status quo is to go into target date funds, which are easy, but doesn't look into your ability to take risks. Most of these funds take way too much risk especially for new grads. We discuss why on this podcast. In addition, often times people quote an average stock market return of 8% - 10% per year. However, they don't know the details of those research reports. Those details matter because you want to make sure your stock allocations are correct. Joe deep dives into this and more on the podcast.

Investing Vs. Money Management
“Well, I know that people are taught to diversify. But diversification is just something that brokers came up with, so they don’t get sued. If you want to get rich… you have to concentrate and focus.” – Jim Rogers I agree 100% with Jim, but when it comes to money management, most consumers don’t understand what Jim is referring to so I want to take a minute in this article to clarify a few things: Why most people say they are “diversifying” but in reality don’t have the ability to do so and have “all their eggs” in one basket; and The difference between investing and money management.
