  • “During volatile and scary times, there are always people who come out of the woodwork about the end of the world happening. A lot of dentists buy into that fear.”
  • “A simple way of thinking about how the stock market works is that there are millions of people around the world who are making the decision to buy the stock or keep the money in their wallet – or sell the stock or hold onto the stock. It’s millions of people agreeing on the prices.”
  • “It’s not a gamble; it’s just science. The market, since 1926, has a 10% annual return that is composed of peaks and troughs that go down 45% that happen once every 7-8 years, and smaller dips at about 15%. We hadn’t had one since 2013 or even a really meaningful one since 2008.”
  • “Two people with the same amount of earnings, times that by 25 years, have choices of what they want to say yes to. All of these things will either leave you with nothing in the end or with financial security and financial independence.”
  • “Some of us need accountability, or we won’t have anything left.”
  • “Liquidity creates presence of mind.”
  • “You need to have more liquidity in a world where the government isn’t respecting the debt that citizens have.”
  • “I would rather see people pay down the liquidity around a business loan because it will give you more confidence around the decisions you’re making.”
