Now you are making money from your salaried job or Business. What do you do with the money? Do you spend it all? Or are you looking for how you can make the money work for you to earn you more money? If you are what I think you are or would want to be – a savvy entrepreneur – I want to believe you will want to put your money to work in order for you to earn more money. You want to truly be above money problems. This is where this piece comes in handy for you.
What kind of Investor are you?
For those who already have the money to put to work, I would broadly categorize them into the following:
These are those who come up with all kinds of reasons why investing does not work. This group of people end up never getting down to investing. They may know all there is to know about investments but always convince themselves that the time is either not right or that other parameters are not in place to invest yet. I have a friend who, even though he has a degree in Economics, belongs to this group.
2. The Gamblers
These ones see investing as a chance thing. They would rather go for an investment where they are promised a bigger than normal returns than look before they leap.
3. The Smart Investors
These are informed about the rules and principles for investing and they follow them clearly. They take calculated risks where necessary. They understand their risk nature and stay within it. They seek as much information as possible to aid their prudent decision making. They are focused and cautious. They understand the markets well and know when opportunities arrive.
