In this episode, Mark discusses the importance of establishing a strategic financial plan with an advisor, before making any significant investment decisions, especially as it pertains to the stock market. Unfortunately, as Mark mentions, most individuals only fixate on the timingof their investments  (only focused on a specific dollar amount of a particular stock) and thus, encounter unexpected financial issues. Mark highlights the concept of Strategic Cost Averaging™: the process of using unequal dollar amounts and continually investing in a company over a long period of time,  as a crucial component to an investor's strategic financial plan.
