In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner Phil Town discusses some of the best pieces of investing advice he's ever received. They are:

  • Avoid watching the price of stocks on a daily basis. Just like a watched pot never boils, you can't expect major changes to happen each day. 
  • Live off one stream of income, then invest the other. Town emphasizes the importance of paying your bills and maintaining a quality lifestyle; once you've settled the basics, try to invest whatever you have left. 
  • Buy businesses, not stocks. Town stresses that you must believe in the companies you invest in. 
  • Treat all your investments the same. If your investment will still be active in a decade, keep at the process and stick with the business to see its true performance.
