Doc's note: Today, I'm sharing an essay from my good friend and colleague Steve Sjuggerud, in which he explains how to find the missing piece of your financial plan.
And don't miss out on a special presentation this Wednesday, January 24 at 8 p.m. Eastern time. Steve, Porter Stansberry, and I will show you exactly how to consistently make more income while taking on far less risk than most investors. Claim your spot here.
"I was at this bar," my roommate Jeff told me back in college. "Next thing you know, the most beautiful girl in the place agreed to go out with me."
The next-thing-you-know phrase appeared again after college, when Jeff and I were stockbrokers together in the mid-1990s. "I talked to this potential client today," he said. "Next thing you know, he's sending in a million dollars."
I love – and hate – Jeff's "next thing you know" stories...
It's not Jeff's success that bothers me – you can't not love the guy. Instead, it's the "next thing you know" part...
Whenever Jeff used "next thing you know" (and he did, often – that rascal), I got frustrated... He was leaving out a key step – a secret to success. And I needed to know what that secret was.
If I didn't get to the bottom of "next thing you know," then I couldn't follow in his footsteps to succeed.
I tell you this because, for most of us, there's a serious piece missing from the financial puzzle... a secret... a "next thing you know" that we need to get to the bottom of.
Today, I will share the solution to finding that crucial secret. Let me explain...
Here's what most ordinary folks think about investing:
If you're reading this, you're more sophisticated than most people...
You know that proper investing takes time – and that the "next thing you know" doesn't happen overnight.
You know that you need to diversify... to put some money into stocks, and some into other investments. That's part of the path to investment success.
But this still isn't enough information. These are just guidelines. The "next thing you know" is still missing.
So what is the missing piece?
It is knowing EXACTLY what to do with your money. It is knowing EXACTLY how to allocate it safely, down to the penny.
If you've followed our writing, you should be doing pretty well.
But... if you haven't taken the time to get organized... if you don't take a whole-portfolio approach... if you inevitably put too much capital in the wrong stocks, and not enough in the right ones... then you are still just guessing.
To get past the "next thing you know," we have an answer for you...
It's a way for you to start investing like a pro. By doing this, you'll maximize your opportunity. You'll allocate appropriately. You can follow your stop-loss discipline. You can finally "get there." And you can do it all in about an hour every month.
I can't share all the details with you here... The ideal thing for you to do is to listen in to our webinar this Wednesday night, where we'll share the details of our service, Stansberry Portfolio Solutions.
In short, it's the secret behind the "next thing you know." And as my friend and colleague Porter Stansberry says, it's "so easy that the average sixth-grader could do it."
Our live webinar is on Wednesday, January 24 at 8 p.m. Eastern time. You can RSVP today by clicking here.
