013 [SWS] Why the Wealthy Never Fear A Stock Market Crash

The coronavirus is high news driving a US Stock Market crash; the DOW plummets 2,100 points. Discover what the wealthy do so they don't have to worry about a market crash. And you can do it too.

In hundreds of interviews with the wealthy, I found they don't worry about market crashes. One wealthy individual who grew up during the Great Depression swears the family didn't notice.

That's not how the general media wants it. Every news broadcaster wants you to know how bad the markets fell. It's a world where fear buys attention.

Wealthy people have concerns yet use clear goals and objectives to adjust plans to increase growth. They prepare in advance for the ups and downs of markets, including the stock market.

Those who own sustainable wealth have two things in common:

  1. Diversity of income,
  2. Diversity of assets,

And these two things are not the same. While your assets cash flow, those with sustainable wealth don't depend on that cash flow as income.

Wealthy individuals are NOT ignoring disaster; they have a different perspective. Even before they had millions in the bank, they were good stewards of the money they have.

Think about? Where is the opportunity? How to position yourself for success? Sustainable wealth is a real thing, especially for high-income professionals and entrepreneurs.

Yet many high-income professionals are living paycheck to paycheck right now. Even more, entrepreneurs don't show a profit in their first five years.

Yet they achieve wealth over time. With your goals and the right approach, your efforts can matter for wealth creation. Markets don't matter as much as you think.

“I mention reducing my fees by 3% — by no means was I in funds with stated fees higher than ? a percent.  Moving the money eliminated commissions and lowered fund fees. 

The decision lowers my all in costs by 3% for the year.  This translates into a $50,000 increase to my retirement forecast.  Small decisions can have big impact when you don't panic.
