Misconceptions About Investing, and Unconventional Ideas

You can get financial advice from a million sources of your choosing... yet, you come to me. At this point, that's probably because you know me personally or professionally, and you seem to trust my judgement. I'll take that as a compliment. 

That being the case, please take some time to read through some of the ideas which have come to me every so often about things in the financial industry which are misunderstood, or "understandings" people have about money or investing which are, in fact, completely wrong. I've tried to take the time to straighten these things out for you below (although I'll admit, it's a n incredibly short list so far). You can help me expand the list here about anything you don't understand by emailing me your questions to thevillageidvestor@gmail.com.

Live long and invest,
