Many investors think of investing as something very difficult… a wild ride. They look at a stock chart, and instead of seeing the 3D "straight line" picture hiding in plain sight, they see a chaotic, scary, up-and-down mess instead.
But as always, I'm here to tell you it doesn't have to be that way.
Investing can, and indeed should, be a smooth process – even if the world is anything but.
I know the headlines, especially, are challenging.
Just this past week, for example, we've had the president meeting with North Korea's Kim Jong Un in Vietnam, more stuff to digest on the Chinese trade talks, Fed Chair Jerome Powell on Capitol Hill, and former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen speaking to the House Oversight Committee.
And that's not even including earnings!
Still, the big stuff is important. I don't want to make light of the concerns you and I have about the world we live in and how those things impact our money.
