My friends do not fear do not panic for now is the time to be bold, to invest, maybe not in the markets but rather in something of lasting quality and value, say a pair of “quality” shoes for instance. My suggestion is to spend a little less on clothing and “invest” in the best pair of shoes you can possibly afford. For as we all know a great pair of shoes will tremendously enhance even the most modest of garments.
A well maintained pair of “quality” shoes will last 20 or more years. Amortized, that’s pennies a day. And while the return on the investment won’t be in currency it will return, comfort, credibility, and long term savings. Believe me, the rewards far outweigh the risks.
