At first I couldn’t think of anyone I would like to switch lives with. I am very content with my own life even if I face many hardships but not more than anyone else I suppose. If I were to swap lives with anyone I think I would like to switch lives with Benjamin Graham or Warren Buffet. Benjamin Graham was a professor that researched the various theories associated with investments. For example the theory of finding patterns in the markets.
Warren Buffet is a stockbroker that own his own investment company called Berkshire Hathaway I would like to live a day in their shoes just to know what they know. I have always been interested by the stock markets but has never had the guts to ACTUALLY take my money and invest it in the stock market. Through my husbands research into the stock markets we’ve learned a lot about investing for our future. We have seen that we can invest in a more secure manner if we invest long term. There will always be a risk of losing your money but keeping the losses to the minimum is what we’re aiming for.
To Learn more about investing you can read The Intelligent Investor. by Benjamin Graham. It is an excellent book that tells you how to invest and also gives information on how the stock markets work.
