It’s really easy to look at other successful investors and believe that they always get it right. Maybe they have some kind of Midas touch or they’re on a winning streak. Today, I want to share with you a few stories on why I don’t think that’s necessarily true, and why trying to avoid loss isn’t actually necessary.  

We cover:

  • how loss is the natural consequence of diversification,
  • the story of Heinz Berggruen,
  • why you can be wrong majority of the time, but still get rich,
  • how index funds are not what you think,
  • how to play the long game with investments, and
  • key takeaway lessons of investing.
