Today, I got pitched an investment opportunity with “only” upside. The type you hear once and start counting your chickens before they hatch.
I have always ran away from any investment that nurtures greed. This was one, but it was being pitched by someone who is otherwise conservative in investments.
It was a surprisingly difficult “No” to say. But I said it, and moved on.
I am thankful for written down principles that make it easier to carry crosses occasioned by hard choices.
