It’s one thing to think the Oracle of Omaha’s advice is good. It’s another to follow it, and choose the path of market optimism.
We’ve all heard Warren Buffett’s famous quote advising us to “be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy only when others are fearful.”
But do you actually act on that? If you did, you’d be feeling pretty greedy right now because fear and uncertainty are running rampant in our communities and in the market, thanks to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
In this episode of the show, we explain why you shouldn’t stop making contributions to your investments — and why now is a good time to benefit from a market downturn if you’re a long-term investor.
We’re also laying out an argument for optimism in general, despite the troubled times we’re living in today. “Right now” does not mean “always” or “forever,” and we believe there are plenty of reasons to feel good about the future.
We may not know when the rain stops and the clouds part, but we do know gray skies today don’t mean we won’t see the sun tomorrow.
For some positive perspective in tough times and a reminder of why we want to invest like Buffett, jump into this episode here:
