If you think you can earn a fortune without lifting a finger, then you are mistaken. Everyone’s chasing easy money to give them the quickest high. And yes, failure’s always good. But why fall on the same booby trap as 80% of people when you can instead learn from others’ mistakes?
P.S.: On a side note, investing is good if you are as studious as Warren Buffett. But if you can’t top the old man when it comes to time and effort, then you’re bust. Better stick with real estate investing.
And because I would like to be as transparent as I can, let me tell you also that I still keep some index funds. I got them as a young man. I’m not expanding them and yet I’m also not selling these funds anytime soon. Why? That will be for another story.
