Bill Schultheis - The Coffeehouse Investor

We have wrapped up our summer webinar season and are elated with the number of participants and investor enthusiasm we have had over the last three months. The quality of questions submitted were invaluable and gave us a lot of ideas for future webinars. Speaking of the future, we are taking a webinar break for a couple months but will finish out the year with one new webinar to get you started on the right Coffeehouse foot for 2015 – stay tuned for dates and times.
Is it the chase of the hot stock or the rewards from the stock that creates happy active investors? Happiness may actually come down to the expectation of the reward. “If you have plans to meet a friend at your favorite restaurant, those positive expectations may increase your happiness as soon as you make the plan. The new equation captures these different effects of expectations and allows happiness to be predicted based on the combined effects of many past events.”
We are wrapping up our Coffeehouse Summer School Series with our last webinar of the season, “Living Your Financial Plan” on Tuesday, August 12th at 6pm (PDT).
Spend an evening with Bill as he discusses risk management and assessing your appetite for risk in "Managing Risk - Your Portfolio, Your Life" at 6pm tonight - Thursday, July 24th.
It’s finally starting to sink in, you really are listening to our investing principles. Congratulations – now we’re going to continue to repeat these rules over and over again until you never deter from the plan (your long term financial plan that is). Fidelity Investments are reporting retirement investing accounts have never looked better, employees are now investing more into their 401K accounts, and are taking advantage of employer match programs.
