Everyone’s heard the story of the tortoise and the hare.  The childhood story tries to teach a lesson that slow and steady will always get you to your final destination.  While I agree wholeheartedly, you can’t help but appreciate the hare’s quickness and potential for a quick win.

If you were a betting person, who would you really put your money on the tortoise or the hare?

Personally, I’d place bets on both because I know that the tortoise will always finish the race and the hare will, when not sleeping, come in first, fast and furiously.

This also explains my attitude toward investing.  I prefer to get rich slow using traditional methods of investing and I try to get rich quick using more aggressive investment strategies.

This week I’ll be posting some of my strategies for getting rich slow; it’ll be boring and unexciting but much like the tortoise it’ll take me to my final destination.
