“Investing is like farming. You have to plant (buy) when the season is right and harvest (sell) when the time comes. In between you don’t have to do that much at all, you mostly wait until your crop (investment) grows.
That ‘nothing’ part seems to be where a lot of people have difficulty. It seems that we are in the midst of a “get rich quick” mentality today. Getting rich quickly often leads to getting broke quickly.”
