  8. When Should You invest?

    When Should You invest? With so many of us taking vacations to the beach this summer, I’m hoping my next statement will start hitting home.  Yes, I will continue to say it as long as I can speak. The stock market moves in waves.  As you sit on the sand, watch the waves form in…
