Why He’s a Top Money Expert:
Hill’s podcast is a go-to for investors to improve their knowledge and strategies.
What do most people not know about investing that you wish they knew?
Patience and temperament have much more to do with succeeding at investing than your math skills.
What should everyone be doing to build their wealth, no matter how much money they currently have?
Find a way to put money towards your investments every month. If you have a 401(k) plan, max it out. If you don’t, set a schedule of putting even just a few dollars into an investment account every month. Your future self will be so grateful.
What should investors be focusing on in 2023 to make the most of their money?
Go big! I.e., Invest in large, profitable companies. 2023 is proving to be a better environment for big businesses than smaller ones. If you don’t already own shares of companies with a market cap over $100 billion, this would be a good time to start.
What investments should they avoid?
Avoid investing in any business you can’t explain to a friend. The more you understand the business, the better you’ll be able to evaluate how it’s doing. (And the better you’ll sleep at night.)
