I often tell people to start small with their first investment. However, let me be clear that this doesn't mean you should think small. Quite the opposite - you should think big when it comes to where you want to go and what you plan to achieve.
Once you've got your big audacious goal, break it down into smaller steps. Start with the smallest step. Keep moving forward, first with little steps, small investments, then progress to bigger steps. As your experience and confidence grow with each success - and yes, even with the setbacks - you will get closer and closer to that big goal.
So start small. But always THINK BIG!
