Robert Louis Stevenson once said “From a small seed, a mighty trunk may grow.” True. An investor is like a farmer that plants a seed on a good soil.
He is expected to:
- Plant a seed everyday.
- Frequently water the seeds you’ve already planted.
- Hone and harness the ground on which your seeds are planted.
- And one day watch the beauty of your labour in the fruits that you harvest.
- Like the seeds, your investment portfolio needs you to continuously plant for growth, and regular trade to ensure effective diversification and maintenance.
“Compound interest is the eighth wonder of the world. He who understands it, earns it … he who doesn’t … pays it.” ~ Albert Einstein
