Define Your Investor Habit

Chapter 1 covers the most important question that investors never ask themselves; what kind of investor are you? Answering this question will determine everything else in your investment career - the industries you should focus on, your investment time horizon, your risk tolerance and your dream outcome, everything starts here. 


The Barbell Approach

Most investors lose because they move too fast into new opportunities. The barbell approach is an easy to apply strategy that allows you to move fast while maintaining an insurance policy along the way. This strategy assures that you only risk what you can afford to lose, minimizing your downside and maximizing your upside.


Build Your Team

You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with. Modern media now allows you to share the room with the world's most successful investors. Successful investing often involves learning from mentors and experts whose insights resonate with you. However, it's important to be cautious of gurus who might be overly biased towards specific asset classes, potentially skewing your perspective.


People Over Everything

Investors often forget that companies are nothing more than groups of people. Understanding how to invest in the best people ensures that you are investing in the best companies. Focusing on the people behind investment opportunities, especially in high-risk sectors is crucial. Successful due diligence on individuals can mitigate risks associated with projects and market trends, leading to better investment choices.


Follow the Smartest Money

Replicate, then iterate. Identifying the smartest investors in your industry and studying their decisions and patterns will expedite the growth and success of any investor. Leveraging the investment strategies of successful money managers and investors can be a powerful approach. By observing and learning from their decisions, you can enhance your investment strategy without starting from scratch.
