Those "pro-choice" feminists

Goals for success

Jack Ma provides excellent advice on expectations and thinking ahead. Unfortunately, that's not what YOLO people want to hear. They want to get rich today by winning the lottery.

I had a surreal conversation with a colleague about two years ago. This guy had some cash in his investment account and he was thinking of buying a few shares. He was hesitant. Understandable because of risk. He said something quite shocking.

"I only want to invest in stocks that go up 50% in a year."

Some of the greatest investors in history manage just a little over 20% compound annual growth rate. Mortals can get 10%. But, nope. He wanted 50%!

I talked to him last year. He had invested in ... nothing! His timidity and foolishness had earned him 0%.
