Invest in the Doldrums

Invest in the Doldrums

The best time to buy a stock is in the valley, just before the boom.

The best time to buy a home is when no one else is buying.

The best time to invest in yourself is when you feel crappy and worthless.

The best time to start your idea is when your competition laughs at you. (Read Netflix's story in Death to the Dinosaurs)

You can buy assets and land for cheaper than ever now. Your idea may not scale quickly and dominate the continent, but if you start now, you can carve out a niche and build it for growth.

The doldrums is a region of the ocean that has calm winds. It’s the point between two waves. It’s the depression before the rise.

Invest when you’re in the doldrums. You can’t afford not to. Don’t allow yourself to remain at the mercy of your situation and your circumstances.
