How to Be a Good Investor

Nov 14, 2013 / Family Time & Vacations     

Every good investor has vision…patience… and insight.  An old Chinese proverb offers this lesson.  If your vision is for a year, plant wheat.  If your vision is for ten years, plant trees.  But if your vision is for a lifetime, plant people.  Things like stocks come and go, but people will carry your values and beliefs through generations.  Investing in your family is the ultimate long-term view, the mutual fund of a lifetime.  Remember, your time is a tool.  So make your moves in the market, but take time to invest in the people around you.  For more ideas, here are 20 tips for creating a family-centered life.
