  1. These are very valuable info for anybody who wants to get rich. Unfortunately, most people who will watch this video will not really be able to apply the principles. We may not want to admit, but as Warren Buffett once said, investing is like any other profession– it requires a certain level of expertise. No surprise that some people are losing a lot of money in the bear market, while others are making hundreds of thousands in profit. I just don’t know how they do it. I have about $109k now to put in the market.

    1. Understanding personal finances and investing will most likely lead to greater financial independence. By being knowledgeable about money and investing, individuals can make informed decisions about how to save, spend, and invest their money. I know someone who made over $350k in this recession influenced market, but to the best of my knowledge, it was through a financial advisor.

    2. true, A lot of folks downplay the role of advisors until being burnt by their own emotions. I remember couple summers back, after my lengthy divorce, I needed a good boost to help my business stay afloat, hence I researched for license advisors and came across someone of due diligence, helped a lot to grow my reserve notwithstanding inflation, from 275k to approx. 850k so far.

  2. It’s important to know your investment goals and what sort of returns you aim for. It is easy to find constant low risk investments options that keep up with or slightly pass inflation, but anything above that comes at the cost of more risk. Are you a fundamental or technical guy? Day trader, swing trader, buy and hold? Are you willing to take safer lower investment income over riskier higher income? Do you believe in market indicators? Can you recognize if you are trading out of greed, or if you are trading with a plan and purpose with stops put in place? That all takes time to learn and we all know that the economy and the markets are not the same thing.

  3. Building wealth and achieving financial independence is more achievable than commonly perceived. With access to accurate information, establishing lasting financial stability and prosperity becomes attainable. Engaging in prudent investment remains a primary avenue for generating substantial income and sustaining enduring wealth.

    1. The initial stride towards wealth creation involves delineating your objectives and assessing your risk appetite, a process that can be undertaken independently or in collaboration with a financial consultant. By acquiring accurate insights into savings and investment strategies, accompanied by a comprehensive blueprint, one can progressively achieve financial stability and experience the rewards of effective income management over time.

    2. Indeed, your perspective is accurate. Engaging the services of a skilled financial advisor, such as Mary Onita Wier can significantly position one for life’s achievements. I am content that I made the decision to enlist the expertise of a financial advisor earlier this year. While some were voicing concerns about the market decline, my focus was on capitalizing on my investments, resulting in a substantial seven-figure gain during the initial quarter alone.

    3. Thank you for the information. I conducted my own research on *Mary Onita Wier* , It appears to be highly skilled and knowledgeable. I’ve sent her an email and arranged a phone call. Her expertise is impressive, and I’m eagerly anticipating our conversation.

  4. I watch several YouTube videos on how to trade in the stock market but haven’t made any head start because they are either talking some gibberish or sharing their story of how they made it and I do not want to make mistakes by taking risks in my own hands…
