We have officially entered a bear market. In this episode, Jason and Tyler discuss the 5 things you need to do to survive and thrive in any bear market. They discuss how long it will take for the market to recover, what can diminish your returns in a bear market and how to avoid it, what your mind is like in a bear market, and the main thing you have to know before changing any of your investments. 

Tune into this episode to learn: 

  • How checking your investment accounts directly affects your gains
  • The best way to invest in every market 
  • How long it will take for the market to recover



[00:39] Episode overview: What’s going on in the stock market? 

[01:33] Is there something we could have done to avoid a bear market?

[02:26] The worst time to figure out your risk tolerance.  

[07:04] “I don’t have time for the market to recover” 

[08:20] How not diversifying can kill your returns (examples).

[13:30] How often you should check your investment accounts.

[17:22] How to THRIVE (not just survive) in a bear market. 


3 Key Highlights 

  1. Know your risk tolerance and align it with your portfolio. There are many different tests you can take to find out your risk tolerance. You also need to figure out how much risk or how little risk you need to take to reach the goals you’ve set for yourself. 

  1. Diversification is not sexy, but it gets the job done. When you diversify your investments, you increase your chances that something you’re invested in does well. For example, cryptocurrency makes up around 2% of the world market, you should keep that in perspective when balancing and diversifying your portfolio. 

  1. The market is on sale right now. You can buy stocks at a discount right now, so don’t stop investing. You want to get stocks at the best price possible, bear markets are an opportunity for that. The stock market is the biggest wealth creator of all time.
