It can be difficult to stay focused on long-term goals and to continue investing during turmoil markets. This article will explore the concepts and potential advantages of long-term investing and why one might want to continue investing when/if markets are in decline. I’ll cover the important of diversification, dollar cost averaging, and the why some people take a buy-and-hold approach to investing. Are there any investing concepts or tips that you share with your clients or fellow investors? Do you have any tips for making sure these concepts stick or anecdotes that might help make this story come alive? I’d like to use your advice throughout the article, so feel free to add any other additional/useful information. Requirements: Personal finance bloggers and/or finance experts with credentials (CFP, etc.). You will need to sign a consent disclosure form for me to use quotes.
