You’ve heard of the Seven Deadly Sins, right? Well recently I read a post that shared the 7 Deadly Sins of Investing. This is a really great post that Katie Brewer put together on her site Your Richest Life Planning.

I was going to pick just one of the seven to share here, but I think all of them are really important.

Seven Deadly Sins of Investing:

  • Not taking your goals into account
  • Basing your investment strategy on someone else’s risk tolerance

  • Basing investment decisions on the news
