Knowing your short and long-term needs is crucial to maintaining financial stability regardless of what the market does.  

In this episode, John discusses tangible and intangible investment options and why a market downturn doesn’t automatically mean bad news. 

In this episode, you’ll also hear:

  • Recognizing the unpredictability of market downturns 
  • Comparing real estate vs. stock investments  
  • Understanding long-term vs. short-term needs and investment tools  

Must-listen moments: 

[00:04:17] The best way to participate in the market is to treat it like the investment it is—a long-term investment. 

[00:09:27] Do little incremental things and use this [downturn] as an opportunity rather than looking at it as doom and gloom, because long term, it certainly is an opportunity. History bears that out very, very, very clearly over time.

[00:10:08] When you’re drawing money out, you’re no longer a long term investor with all of your money…it’s important to remember when you’re dealing with that, to allocate your money properly.
