What’s the biggest financial mistake most people make? Taking too conservative of an approach with their investments.
How do you get first-time investors to alter their thinking on investing? When someone says they are “afraid of the market,” it tells me they don’t understand how it works. The market is comprised of companies with a product they use. Explaining how their purchasing habits play into the stock market makes it clearer and takes away their fear.
