The Second Time

There is one time when most (if not all) investors are generally happy. I bet you know this.

It’s when your portfolio goes up in value. It’s when your financial net-worth (your financial scorecard) has gone up. It’s when the portfolio reports are all green and are showing double digit returns.

However, there is a second time when only a few wise (and real) investors are happy.

What type of an investor are you?

Do you have a winning investor’s mindset?

It’s important to figure this out before you invest, because the stock market can be an expensive place to find this out.
