The key ingredient to the success of the Boodle strategy is you. Focusing on your financial goal is your responsibility, but don’t worry, Boodle will be there to help you every step of the way.
Discipline - Why do 68% of people fail at being successful investors? There are many reasons, but one is they lack the discipline to stay fully invested during the bad times. Many people bail out of the stock market at the worst possible time. Others enter it at the worst possible time. The stock market rewards discipline and punishes ignorance.
Boodle is all about discipline. We don't chase fads, returns or superstar stocks. Let others take on additional risk. We also believe that members should add money into their portfolios on a regular basis. This approach is known as "dollar cost averaging". Our disciplined approach is practiced throughout Boodle. You won’t see us touting the hottest mutual funds or changing what has made us successful.
Success defined - What is success when it comes to investing? Is it being in the best mutual funds? Is it having the most money? Is it financial security? Or is it something deeper?
We believe that only you can answer that question based on your own personal goals. We define success by how successful our members become. We do not measure our success by how much money we can charge our members, but rather, how much money we can help add to your portfolio.
By having these types of principles we feel we will be able to retain and grow our member base for years to come. Our sense of pride and duty comes from showing a person, who struggled with investing, that with the knowledge and the right partner, success can be achieved. At Boodle, if you’re not confident and making money, then neither are we. This is how we define success, for ourselves and our members.
Mutual fund investing involves risk, including possible loss of principal.

Emotions- Now that we have addressed a required ingredient of successful investing, let’s talk about what not to bring as a portfolio manager. Why do a lot of investors lose money in their investments? One of the main reasons is emotions. The two main emotions that investors lack discipline with are fear and greed. Are these emotions “bad”? No. Should you eliminate them? No, just minimize them. When you experience the surge of a bull market, or the pain of a bear market, keep in mind that this too shall pass and that you are a member of Boodle.com. We will give you researched guidance that you can’t get from any one source. So keep your emotions in check and we’ll do the rest. Only Members will find more details about this when they join.
