Segment three of this program might make your head spin with all of the information in such a short period of time. In this segment, I remind listeners that much of what I covered in segment three is not necessary. Investors need to focus on what they can control and learn to let go of things beyond their control. Ultimately, successful investors let financial markets work for them and not against them.
Original Airdate Sunday, January 19, 2014 – KNBR 680 AM San Francisco
It is hard to believe that 2013 is now in the books and 2014 is now in full swing. In this segment, I spend about 15 minutes covering a lot of details about what happened last year in financial markets. But don’t stop listening here… I give you the real reason for this market review in the final segment of the program. The answer might surprise you.
In this segment, I spend time talking about three of the four guiding investment principles that people should use to get a handle on the big picture. Many people struggle with their investments and one cause might be the lack of bedrock principles to guide them through good markets and bad.
What does planting an olive tree have to do with investments? More than you might think! This segment ties in the process of planting an olive tree and building a solid set of investment principles to last a lifetime. In many cases, investment professionals and individual investors alike fail to focus on what they can control. Instead, they spend countless hours focusing and worrying about matters beyond their control.
After sixteen years on the air at KNBR 680 AM, I thought it was about time to launch an official website/blog for Gary Allen on Business. People have been asking for years if there was a place to listen to replays of the program. Shocking that listeners were not getting up each weekend to hear the program live at eight in the morning! Here is the great news for those of you that like to sleep in a little bit on the weekends. There are no more excuses for missing my program each week. Now you will be able to hear the replays right here on this website.
I have been talking with the technology folks and you will be able to subscribe to the show, listen to it whenever you want and hopefully on just about any device out there. I hope that you enjoy this site and help me turn it into a great resource for everyone.
