The Investor's Advocate: Will Power


 Why Purpose Driven Investing Should Be Added to Your Investment Strategies


Can the power of purpose be used to help you to grow your investment portfolio? And if so, to what extent? To find answers to these questions, you should read an interesting post from Anthony Rhodes, the owner of wealth management firm The Planning Perspective (www.theplanningperspective.com) called "Profit Motive" (https://www.howtoinvestblog.net/2020/09/profit-motive.html ) . This is a recent addition to his popular How To Invest blog (www.howtoinvestblog.net ).

"Purpose has power." he began. "Everything that we see around us-from buildings to automobiles, to electronic devices-all originated from a founding purpose." he added. "And it is this idea which provided a basis for the article. I wanted to tap into this internal will power, and use it to drive home the message that, if properly implemented, it could be directed towards becoming a successful investing tactic." he added.

Within the post, Mr. Rhodes provides examples of how will power has played important roles in the lives of successful individuals. "Nothing worthwhile is ever accomplished without first developing a clear, precise motivation for achieving it." he explained. "This goes far beyond a simple generalization of success, but delves into the importance of specification." he continued. "Without this element, we miss out on the opportunity to direct all of our mental faculties towards the goal, which is essential to achieving its success." he concluded.

The Investor's Advocate: 50 and Counting

  The Advocate Celebrates 50 Posts of "How To Invest" with Extensive Interview with its Creator   The Investor's Advocate: This is a bit belated since you've already passed 50 posts at the time of this writing, but the number is quite a milestone. Did you ever imagine that you'd still be covering this subject for as long as you have? Anthony Rhodes: The great thing about investing is that its universe is so incredibly vast that there's always material to cover. To say nothing about new products and rules which come into play on a regular basis. So, I'm not all that surprised to still be at it today. The difficulty lies in which direction to move within. Should I cover products, strategies or current events? And how to make it all relatable to the average person. This is the motivation and challenge which keeps me going. The Investor's Advocate : To that point, one of the hallmarks of your blog is how it tends to weave subjects which aren't normally
