The Entrepreneur’s Source Top 5 Tips for Smart Investing

  1. Diversification is the key: Do not place all your eggs in one basket. As a society, we have become comfortable with the idea that allowing others to manage our investments is in our best interest. This is not always the case.  Investors should diversify their portfolios with both passive and reactive investments in order to safeguard against losing control of the return.
  2. Pick Proactive: Reallocate a portion of your portfolio into a proactive investment, like a franchise business, versus a majority of reactive investments. A franchise business is a proactive investment that allows individuals to have much greater control over their return, as they are not completely dependent on the stock market or other factors out of their control.
  3. Have a clear plan: Before investing in anything, you should know why you are investing it. The Entrepreneur’s Source believes the first question that should be asked when considering entrepreneurship through investing in a franchise business opportunity is “why?”
  4. Focus on long-term goals: Investors should establish their desired Income, Lifestyle, Wealth and Equity (ILWE) goals and keep at the forefront at all times. The ILWE creates a framework for growing a successful business and by focusing on both short and long-term objectives.
  5. Be open to guidance: Enlisting a business coach will keep individuals on track and provide objective advice and support.  E-Source business coaches provide an environment where clients can focus on identifying what investments will best serve as the vehicle to achieving goals.
