The downside is when shit tanks like it has for the past few days. On December 12 of last year, I had $27,000.00 more than I have now in investments. $27,000.00. That's some serious buckos.
Tyler, my financial adviser, says not to worry and I don't. He also says not to break out the champagne on days when the bottom line shoots up. And I don't.
Every day I check the number and mark it in my spreadsheet. Green is my net worth and blue is my investment portfolio. (The difference is mainly my condo.)
Kind of makes me glad today is Friday. I can't lose any more money until Monday.
