If you are like most folks, you react after-the-fact. Most folks do not initiate a game plan for life, they just live it. You hear about a great investment. You react, you invest and then you wonder what happened days, weeks and months later. It doesn't occur to you that an investment is only really a great investment if you know long before other potential investors are informed.
And gaining knowledge long before other potential investors is not the only requirement necessary to being involved in a great investment. To truly do well at any investment, one needs to have convection. And the only way we know of acquiring convection is through gaining a competive advantage with the previously mentioned knowledge. Once you have this convection, then you will find it much easier to ride out any storm of uncertainty that is usually experienced many times in one's journey across an ever-changing economic sea. If you are ever contemplating an investment into anything that you have little to no experience, knowledge of or convection in, you should remember the following: Educate yourself fully first or at the very least, find someone that you can rely on that will afford you the necessary characteristics mentioned above in order to thrive in your investment endeavors going forward.
