There is one indisputable thing about investing that we have all been reminded of over the past couple of months: markets will go up and down. When they head south, you may feel a twinge of doubt surrounding your investment plan and even about the markets themselves. The reality is, there is nothing any of us can do to control the markets, so instead of worrying, be optimistic that, historically, markets have tended to reward patient, long-term investors. The world will keep turning, and people and companies are continually in need of groundbreaking goods and services, and in the long run, I believe that investing the way we do is the right way to help build a financial legacy for you and your family.
