“You’ll understand when you’re older” is one of those sayings that parents tell their children when they don’t have time or aren’t ready to explain something.
Infuriating to a child, and forgotten by the adult.
But as time goes on, the child will realise that actually, their parents were right. Sometimes time and experience mean that you do understand things better.
We’ve all started a job or project where we feel somewhat underqualified, where we are feeling around in the dark. Then one day it just clicks. All of a sudden, you know what you’re doing, and people are asking for your advice.
Then, you move on to the next project, and the next and the next, and you’re taking the experience from all the jobs or projects before, building on your experiences.
Investing is just the same. At first, the ticker names scrolling along the screen feel alien, and you need to look up stock names and what it is these companies do.
Then, one day, out of the blue, your experience takes over and you know that obscure stock name is a household company. You know what industry they’re in and who their CEO is.
At Upside, we are that experience.
