This week on the tipping point: Your ego is ruining your financial independence plan.

And I would say that one of the biggest mistakes investors make when you’re trying to plan for your financial independence is you let your ego get in the way. And nothing makes for a worse financial plan than letting your ego dictate a lot of your financial decisions.

There’s never been a company or an individual that’s been able to consistently outperform the market. But what do people do? They’ve got to try and prove that because “My ego says I can do it. I’m going to go out there and underperform, even lose money trying.”

This week’s hidden facts of finance

  • A recent survey shows 84% of companies are planning to hire in 2023.
