🧠 You Make More Money In Bear Markets


Friends, In the children’s book, Ivy and Bean: What’s the Big Deal?, the namesake characters – 2nd graders – are tasked with a big assignment: help reverse global warming.

Their solution was simple.

On a warm fall night, they took adults to an open field. They stretched out on grass. The stars were bright. Crickets were chirping. Ivy and Bean said nothing…for 15 minutes. Then, they ask a simple question: “How do you feel now?”

The responses: Wonderful. Relaxed. Connected with nature.

Ivy and Bean wrap up by reminding them, “This is what we’re working to nurture.” They got an A+.

What deeper goal are you working to nurture with your finances? It’s different for everyone.

Maybe it’s quality time with family. Or exploring the world. Or the freedom to do whatever the heck you want.

Those in the United States having a long Thanksgiving weekend coming up. We encourage you to set your investing goals to the side. Take a little time to reconnect with your bigger goals this week.

It is both the fuel that will drive you and a gift in itself.

– Brian Feroldi, Brian Stoffel, & Brian Withers
