Dear Startup Investor,
Here at The Startup Investor, I have two goals.
The first is to make sure that you’re up to date on all of the latest headlines out of Silicon Valley and beyond.
The second is to help you develop a comprehensive toolbox full of strategies that you can use to make the best angel investing decisions for your buck.
Today, I want to focus on that second one.
With the summer upon us, we’re all hopefully heading out for a little bit of fun in the sun over the next few months. It’s likely that we’ll be spending a little bit more money than we’ve been used to on vacations, beach days, happy hours, restaurant meals, and more.
That’s why I think today is the perfect time to dive into an important topic… How to diversify your portfolio so you can still make quick gains while waiting for your longer-term angel investing portfolio to mature.
Regardless of how much money you plan on spending this summer, diversification is one of the most important tools to add to your angel investing arsenal.
Because the truth is, angel investing is risky as it stands. But even if you struck gold on every single one of your portfolio companies, you’ll still be waiting a long time to see any type of financial reward.
In the angel investing world, a general rule of thumb is that it takes between three to 10 years for an investment to mature. If you’re looking at an IPO, that could be closer to 10 years.
Diversifying your portfolio spreads your money out across a wide variety of assets. That way, you’re not putting all of your hard-earned cash into one particular asset class. By doing that, you’re setting yourself up for higher returns in the long run.
For the angel investing side of things, I always recommend you choose at least 10 different investments. Angel investing is all about the hits. You’re not going to hit a home run on every single investment, but even scoring on one or two of them should be enough to more than make up for the losses.
But that takes a while. While angel investing could get you that dream mansion and new set of wheels, we’ve got groceries to buy, cars to fill with gas, and more.
Not to mention, sitting and waiting for an angel investment to mature without doing anything else is kind of like watching paint dry. There’s not much you can do except wait. And while the wait can be well worth it, I like to diversify my portfolio so that I can pad my bank account in between my private investments.
If I had to handpick a single strategy right now, I’d pick the Money Calendar.
If you’ve been here for a long time, you may remember me talking about this before… But it’s been a little while, and I don’t want anyone to miss out on what this system is capable of achieving.
The Money Calendaris the brainchild of my colleague Tom Gentile… who, if I do say so myself, is absolutely killing it this year.
It’s a system designed to target the tiniest market patterns that no one else sees and play them for the potential to double your money in less than one month. Not to mention, he only targets blue-chip stocks that have shown predictable price patterns each year for the last decade.
The Money Calendaris one of several systems Tom’s readers get to access. I’m talking crypto plays… live calls… analysis videos… and more.
Through it all, he’s been delivering insane triple-digit windfalls all year. And to be completely honest, I’m not sure I know of another system capable of doing that much for this value.
Today, he wants to share it with you, too.
I’ll be back soon with another update.
Until next time,
