When it comes to investing, conventional wisdom says to hand your money over to a financial advisor and let them diversify your investments for you. Why think too much about where your money is going if you don’t have to? But there’s a problem with that mindset: your values matter and you should be investing in what you love.
Consistently pouring your life and efforts into the things you care about — that matters. As much as 85% of the stock market is controlled by small investors.
Imagine the impact those small investors could have if they invested based on their passions and values, rather than the values (or just the blind greed) that drives financial institutions’ investment decisions.
You can choose to invest in whatever you want and wherever your passions lie. And the great thing about it is that everyone values something different. Invest in stocks that you value.
If you’re not sure what your values are, it’s time to step back and do a little searching. In general, it might make sense not to invest in products or companies that make the world a worse place to live in, but that’s totally up to you.
In today’s episode, Phil and Danielle talk about taking charge of your investments and making sure that you’re putting your money where your passions and values lie.
Because at the end of the day, you’re better off knowing that you’ve used your resources as wisely as possible, and that you’ve done your best with what you’ve got.
