The lesson my rich dad was drumming into my head, and I mean to drum into yours, is that investing should make me richer every month, not poorer. It should put money in my pocket every month, not take money out. To him, it was a miracle that so many financial services salespeople could convince financially naive people that it was smart to pay money to invest.
What a wonderful quotation this is! It has been in the back of my mind for a long time… But I tried to articulate it, however, it wasn’t convincing to other people… I’m glad that you wrote it that way, Robert.
