In my dream, we provide our son with the opportunities to pursue his interests. We provide him with a good education and send him to a good university.
In my dream, I go to bed with my wife after a long day never having to argue over money troubles. I provide my parents with a good retirement.
In my dream, I can afford the medical fees of a good doctor for the family when bad times hit.
I hope to set up schools for children who cannot afford school otherwise.
Money in itself does not mean we will live well. Good health and relationships are equally important.
Money provides us with an option. An option to spend more time and effort on our health. An option to work less and spend more time cultivating relationships with family and friends. An option to live our dreams.
Your chosen full time work is the foundation of your wealth building process. Work hard and smart and be good at it. Building (wealth) on top of a strong foundation is important.
Learn to reduce unnecessary expenses. Identify the ``too good to be true``, ``get rich quick`` proposals and avoid them as they almost always cost you to lose your money in the end.
Gain a better understanding of risks and returns. Take calculated risks and get your money to work hard for you.
When I started my investing journey more than a decade ago, I was drawn to complex ideas and analytical tools. I also liked the idea of being “in the market”, keeping up with newsflow and all the flickering numbers running all over the multiple screens.
However like most things in life, the 80-20 rule seems to apply in investing. 20% of the effort seems to contribute to 80% of the results. The remaining 80% of the efforts such as watching financial media, reading wall street analyst’s financial predictions or even watching prices rise and fall daily, has less contributions to making money.
This bootcamp focuses on the 20% of the effort, such as combining valuation and momentum analysis and risk management, to enable us to spend less time on investing, stand better chances of making money and have more time to live a good life.
