How to Know When You’re Ready to Take The Plunge

“How will I know when I’m ready to write the check?”

This is something that I hear ALL THE TIME from our audience – and it’s a completely valid question to ask.

Making the leap into website investing can be scary. You’re putting a lot of time, energy, and money on the line. You’re betting on yourself, and you might not be completely confident in your ability to get the job done.

Those are all valid concerns, but in many cases they are overblown. In my experience, there are three distinct “green flags” that are clear signs that you are ready to take the plunge.

If you can check all three of those boxes, you’re ready to stop dreaming, planning, or second-guessing and start DOING.

On this episode you’ll hear:

  • One specific fear you’ll have to conquer before you can take the plunge
  • One area where you need to have a crystal clear understanding in order to even consider moving forward
  • One plan that absolutely has to be in place before you can officially become a website investor

Finding Your “Why” for Becoming a Website Investor

Online website investing is one of the new investment frontiers that has really opened up in the 21st Century. It’s an exciting time out on this frontier. There’s a lot of open space, several opportunities, and less competition than there is in other, more traditional markets.

Alongside these new possibilities is the presence of real risk. There is less research to guide you. There are fewer guides and companions for the journey. And we haven’t been doing this as long as other types of investment.

Fortunately, a lot of sound investment principles still apply in these new spaces. Our guide today, Ian Bond, shares the lessons he learned on a different frontier, and how those lessons have served him well in the uncharted territory we all face today.

On this episode you’ll hear:

  • How Ian’s experience on Wall Street in the 1980’s informs his current approach to investing
  • Three common risks you’ll encounter in a new investment frontier
  • The information you’ll need to navigate this new frontier
  • How to assess the advice you’ll receive from website brokers
  • How to assess the consequences of your decisions
  • What you can do to minimize your risk on this frontier
