Finance and The Inuit are two topics that I am only averagely versed in.
I am no layman, though. I study.
- I plan to make money — financial objective.
- I plan NOT to freeze to death in the CanadianArctic — just a general objective.
That said, I refuse to be someone unprepared for the long, wintery ‘bear market’ that is sure to come after this 8 year long ‘bull market’ finally ends. The majority of you will fuss about the market ruining you, and tragically, the prepared minority won’t have much sympathy. If you know something bad is looming, prepare for it. Pretty simple logic.
Prepare for winter, don’t react to it.
You’ve been blessed with this knowledge. The burden is yours to educate yourself now, or to wipe your tears later.
“People love to say that knowledge is power. But the truth is that knowledge is only potential power. You and I both know that it’s useless if you don’t act on it.” – Tony Robbins
Start with this book by Tony Robbins.
I did, and while I’m still no expert, I feel a whole lot more secure about my financial future than I did before reading it.
Start there. Start anywhere. Just don’t grizzle and grumble to me about your frostbitten fingers if you’ve never read up on how the Inuit keep warm in the winter.
