A)It’s good to be in control
I don’t like to invest in things where I have no control, especially when it comes to my money. I am not a stock trader or a flipper (one who constantly buys and sells property). I am not good at timing the highs and lows of the stock market or the real estate market. I’m just not that smart.
I can’t control the markets, but I can control my rental properties and my businesses. The majority of stock shares that Robert and I own are shares of companies we own. Most of my cash flow from my investments is not dictated by the daily fluctuations of the market. And although I may not be able to control the oil production of our cash-flowing oil wells, I can pick up the phone and talk with the owners of the company at any time.
One of the great things about having financial intelligence gained through financial education is that you have the knowledge and confidence needed to invest in assets over which you have control. You know the right questions to ask and the right things to look for. In short, you’re comfortable being in control.
Do you need my assistance???
