I have people coming into my office during the work day asking how the stock market is doing. Of course most of the time, it's been going down. Some of the people asking don't have a whole lot in their 401(k) but want to see their investment increase in value. The key to this will be patience and time.
In the meantime, what are you doing about your personal stock? Are you doing anything to further cultivate your talents? Let me explain.
Since I started blogging, I have discovered a writing talent that I didn't think I had before. I figure at this time I have about 2 books in me, one of which all I have to do is tie together. The other is something I want to base on my Whattville blog. I've been kicking it around in my head but until yesterday didn't do a lot about it.
Yesterday afternoon after we got Kathy's dad home from the hospital, my mother in law needed to go to the store to get some prescriptions filled and to pick up a few items. So it was off to the local Wal*Mart(soon to become Evil Big Box Store(tm) #1894.) I dropped her off at the door then found a parking space. As it was going to take about 1/2 hour, I went in and bought me a composition notebook. I took the book, went to the in store Subway, bought a drink, then sat down and started writing. The first page, I drew a map of what I imagined Whattville looks like. I then started writing a detailed description of Whattville. I'll tell you now that Whattville isn't Mayberry, but it isn't a bad place either.
This is some of my stock I'm investing in. I hope I keep investing. How are you investing in your stock?
