Trust the process, make a plan:
Investing is not for the faint of heart and sometimes it’s best to go back to what you you planned from the get go. If you start your investment journey without a vision of your goals and target gains, it’s easy to lose sight of where you’re headed and make a series of smaller decisions that add up to a big impact. Before you get started, sit tight and make a list of goals, risk tolerance, and what types of asset classes interest you. Before starting any program, it’s always best to consult your financial advisor and collaborate on a plan that will balance your risk/return comfort levels. When things get tough, pull out your plan and make sure you're making decisions that line up with the plan you made when you had a cool head.
