PostIn Praise of Ric Mauricio and Financial Serenity (Enrique Torner, USA, 03/08/21 4:20 am)
I want to express my appreciation for Ric Mauricio, whose wise words were very reassuring.
Ric knows how to speak plainly to people who, like me, are no financial whizzes, so they understand what he is saying. Now, if you can explain a complicated subject in a language that even a kid can understand, that's evidence that you are an accomplished, talented teacher (or coach, as John well put it!).
Thank you, Ric!
JE comments: WAIS doesn't usually post attaboys (or on International Women's Day, attagirls), but I make exceptions when the situation calls for it. Enrique Torner has identified in Ric Mauricio the rarest of treasures--a Certified Financial Planner who is also "Zen"! I heartily agree.
My two takeaways from Ric's post of March 7th: 1) When the Big Guys say sell you should buy (and vice versa), as that is what they are doing; and 2) A hands-off approach to your portfolio is often the best strategy. Ric pointed out that dead people with abandoned accounts often outperform the obsessive financial micromanagers.
Zag when others zig. Zen, indeed.
