David Justin Urbas - You Need To Lose Money To Make Profits

Do you remember your first investment loss? What did it feel like? It was a long time ago and I know so much now but I don’t think I will ever forget the first time I lost money.

I wanted to invest some money I had saved up but knew nothing about investments. A friend of mine hooked me up with her sister who was an insurance agent. She sold me a life insurance policy with a cash value that was a good “investment”. The cash value was guaranteed by the insurance company. It sounded good to me and I signed up. I was a young single woman at the time with no kids. Years later when my rent went up unexpectedly, I went to draw on this cash value and couldn’t. I studied up on what I invested in and was furious that I was sold a policy that wasn’t suitable for me and wasn’t really an investment. Lesson learned.
