A little while ago I got into the stock market, and immediately lost money. And I've kept losing money ... a lot of it ...
But I'm not really panicked. I think I made some really good choices in the stocks I picked (solid companies with good reputations, deep pockets, and sound business plans) and even though the prices are still sinking, I have time on my side. In fact, my biggest frustration today is that I don't have more money to buy more stocks. As the prices keep falling, things are becoming better bargains, and the long-term prospects look brighter.
Wow, it really is true ... it's tough to make money if you don't have any.
From far away, they look the same.
