Investment strategies in lieu of wacky elections.
We survived Super Tuesday with wild cards on all sides of the election. The lack of clarity and uncertainty can send investment markets spiraling. What are we to do with our investment strategies? Do we rush towards predictions of where the change is headed? I want to reinforce what you have already heard: put your financial airbags in place. Today, I’m talking about the return on investment of an emergency fund and the protection it offers. I want to ensure you have the flexibility to respond and not blow up your long term investments or lifestyle. Find out how to take the minimum investment risk to position yourself to achieve your goals, on this episode.
What is a financial bubble?
In our lifetime there have been financial, or economic, bubbles influencing our investments and financial stability. The difficult part is of financial bubbles is they are usually defined after the fact, because they expand beyond their norm and then blow up. Think back to the technology stocks increase from the dot-com explosion, or the real estate rise and burst, or the massive lending that crashed. These are economical cycles characterized by a rise and excess that end in a burst. Are we in the midst of one? And how do you get ahead of retrospect and capitalize on a bubble? Tune in to visualize these bubbles patterns.
Planting one foot to pivot.
Today, I talk with Mike Kim, a marketing consultant, communications strategist, and writer, about his personal pivot from a 9-5 corporate grind to an independent career of serving small business owners in strategy and marketing. Mike offers insight to a career transition that starts with self-assessment of what value you are bringing to your current corporate job. Listen to Mike’s breakdown of his corporate job description versus what experience he actually gained from his day to day actions. A pivot is picking a pillar foot to turn the rest of your body based on where you foot is planted. How did Mike do it? And how can you? Listen in to how you can design your plan to pivot and work more independently.
Strategizing your side hustle.
Mike Kim has made all the mistakes so you don’t have to. Today, I ask him for a plan that we can all learn from. Mike has a “Pivot Pathway Process” to establish perimeters you can live and thrive within. Do you have a viable business plan? Do you have accountability? Listen in to get on track in projecting your progress. Take what you have learned from your day job and apply it to your hustle. If we take actions, we will get results. I love Mike’s strategy and approach to take control of your own life and find the freedom you desire. Tune in to get a taste of what you’re truly hungry for.
