The Old Soldier use to study the stock market. I’m not kidding. I even bought some stock; but that didn’t last long. I couldn’t keep making the $50.00 a month investment. That was the deal. I had to invest $50.00 every month.
My short career as an investor did not go to waste. The Old Soldier took the advice of the most successful and celebrated investors and he applied it to being a writer.
I would invest in my writing talent.
Any successful investment strategy is built on knowledge of the field, investing skill and taking the long view. You really do have to do your homework. Not just invest but study the companies you are investing in.
And you must be willing to learn from the successful investors who are recognized as the best at what they do.
In other words, a writer must do exactly what successful investors do.
And with a little luck, your investment will eventually begin to pay off.
