I’ve been working on something for the past few months. |
Something I kick myself for not starting earlier.
And that is, building my investment portfolio.
For the longest time, I’ve just been letting my dollar dollar billz sit in my bank account while they’re earning me 0.000001% interest.
I already set up my emergency funds and still had some money leftover.
So I thought, “Why not invest the rest?”
Before I invested a single penny, I told myself to play the long term game. I assumed doing anything outside of that will end up screwing me over.
And I know I’m not completely wrong. I know some people who invested in AMC and Gamestop stocks, even Dogecoin the cryptocurrency because their friends told them to and they wanted to make a quick profit. Before they knew it, prices dropped, they panicked, cashed out, and accepted defeat.
Honestly, they’d probably have a better chance of profiting if they bought stocks chosen randomly by a blindfolded monkey.
But I can’t completely blame them. It’s hard to resist the feeling of missing out and not want that instant gratification.
In fact, I think wanting instant gratification is what causes people to screw themselves over in the first place.
I believe playing the long game is always the way to go.
That applies to email marketing too.
It’s very rare to see someone throw their money at you as soon as they join your email list. It takes time for the relationship and trust to build.
I heard stories of people being on an email list for years until they finally bought something.
That may not always be the case, but that’s just how the world works.
