This is Julie Rains of Investing to Thrive. I’m spending my vacation hiking in the Alps. My husband and I went through several training hikes to get ready but nothing really prepared us for the steepness of the trails. Even though the views our fantastic once you get up to the top. I even did a couple century rides in the past year, and a sprint triathlon. Still didn’t quite get me ready.
I’ve also noticed that investing is a lot like alpine hiking, at first it can be kind of intimidating but after a few days you kinda get used to things. You learn a few tricks. I think I’ve learned that no matter how much you read the best experience is first-hand experience. So if you wanna learn to invest just go ahead and get out there and do it.
