4 Areas Every Leader Must Invest In To Be Diversified

Outside of leadership, one of the activities I enjoy is investing. I’ve begun looking for investment opportunities in the stock market, cryptocurrency markets, private ventures, and more.

My investment portfolio is diversified. My money isn’t held in one specific investment or business. The money I’ve invested is spread around to different types of businesses, money markets, and portfolios.

From what I’ve studied, wise investors do this. They look for ways to diversify their investments so all of their money isn’t in one basket. Because if that one basket comes crashing down, you could lose all of your investment capital. And that’s bad.

By diversifying where you invest, you reduce risk. One type of investment market could go down while the other goes up. These ups and downs will typically balance one another out and you’ll wind up ahead.

Danielle Strickland loves Jesus and loves people. She is the author of 5 books. And she is also an Officer at the Salvation Army.

In the movie Hercules, one of Hercules’ men covered a bloody wound and told him to never, ever let them see you bleed.

Yet look at the most courageous, valiant man ever: Jesus. He hung on a cross and let the world see the Him bleed. He left the splendor of Heaven to come to earth.

Jesus was the anti-Hercules. The Hercules myth is the anti-Jesus. Jesus is the definition of courage.

We spend our lives trying to avoid our own humanity. We pick up swords and pretend to be great.
