What We’ve Learned From Our Fathers

In honor of Father’s Day, members of the LPL Research team shared what they have learned from their fathers about investing and life. We hope all of the dads out there had a special day yesterday —we couldn’t do it without you.

“Don’t get scared into selling long-term investments during a correction. Be patient and wait it out.”

“I am continuing to learn from my dad’s lifelong example of giving to others; this example inspired my decision to join LPL’s Employee Volunteer Corps. I keep my dad’s example in mind when collaborating with our dedicated LPL volunteers and inspiring community partners.”

“Margin is a great way to make a lot of money fast; the flipside to that is leverage works both ways. I’ve learned that the hard way.”

“Invest early, invest often.”

“Successful people have the ability to do what needs to be done, even if they don’t feel like doing it; as well as the ability to not do things they feel like doing if they know they shouldn’t. There is no substitute for hard work.”

“Success is capitalizing on economic opportunities, yet treating others with over-reaching kindness.”

“In business and in life, always show your appreciation for the people who support you.”

“Selling is a numbers game —focus on the sales, not the rejections.”

“People get wrapped up in appearances. Look for talent where other people don’t see it.”

“My grandfather would say (just about every time I saw him): Setting aside the time to take a walk every day, no matter how busy you are, is one of the most important things you can do to take care of yourself.”
