5 Habits of Highly Effective Investors

The June monthly meeting featured Stacy Shindler of Edward Jones. Unfortunately, our meeting was hacked, so we aren’t able to share the recording, but we’ve got the 5 habits outlined below, along with some tips for talking to kids about money.

  1. Goal Oriented
    • Create the design of what you want to achieve
  2. Regularly Check Their GPS
    • Regular checkpoints, financial review and goal evaluation to make sure you’re staying on track
  3. Don’t Put All Their Eggs in One Basket
    • A diverse financial portfolio will give them more balanced earnings
  4. Put Time on Their Side
    • Evaluated market moves against a calendar and stay the course for long term objectives
  5. Stay Cool When the Market’s Temperature Rises
    • Prepare and plan BEFORE at downturn, remain calm and focus on fundamentals

Kids & Money

It’s never too early to start talking about money! Here are some suggestions for different age groups:

2-5 years: Introduce counting, coins & money; the concept of making money by working; make believe store or restaurant

6-10 years: Introduce earning, spending, saving, and giving money; open a savings account; begin comparing prices

11-14 years: Goal setting; value of hard work; need -vs- want; continue discussions from earlier years

15-18 years: Create budget and set specific goals; get a job; open checking/savings account; learn to use ATM/write checks/balance accounts online; learn about credit and taxes.

Stacy invites you to connect on LinkedIn at Stacy Lynn Shindler (fun fact: her husband is also named Stacy Schindler, so you need the “Lynn” to find her on LinkedIn)
