The financial markets will come and go. Sometimes investors are focused on the downside. Other times they are focused on the upside. Right now it is the latter. But someday it will move to the former. That’s how financial markets behave. End markets, the place all businesses get paid day in and out, don’t whipsaw you like financial markets. Build a product and sell it to the end market and get profitable and create lasting sustainable value and you’ll get to the pay window on your terms and your time frame.
