Risky Business: Investing- What Does the Term "Risk" Really Mean?

When it comes to investing, what is “RISK”? RISK can be defined by the opportunity to gain significant money at the RISK of losing significant money. For most people RISK is defined by feelings. “I lost a lot of money in 2008 so I don’t like RISK!” or “My parents lost everything during the last recession when I was a kid, so I hoard my money!” Those things are relevant but can get you in trouble if that is all you are basing your decision on.

The Power of “Passive Income”

The definition of passive income is revenue that is generated in a way that doesn’t involve significant or ongoing labor, energy, or time to earn or maintain.

"FAANG” – Individual Stocks Could Bite if You’re Not Careful

“FAANG” stands for Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix and Google/Alphabet. These are considered 5 of the hottest stocks in the market today. These 5 stocks have no doubt created a lot of rich people and in turn, have generated a lot of buzz when it comes to any investor from the newest to the most advanced. This concept has driven further theory and speculation into “figuring out” or “cracking the code” to the unpredictable stock market which has been going on since its inception in 1926.

The Numbers and Psychology of Retirement

Planning for retirement and retirement itself is both a game of numbers and psychology. Both areas serve to create the most successful planning and, ironically, a focus on each of these areas individually serve the other. The numbers are the foundation and lifeblood of any retirement plan. Most people, even the ones actively saving for retirement, do not have a clear and specific idea of what their investments will be and what they can expect from them when they retire.
