MARKET SELECTION

Basically, fragility when you need to be robust. Risk where you need certainty. As the saying goes, it's time to stop doing stuff where you eat. Invest in yourself by exploring other markets. There are nearly 8 billion people in the world. Some of them definitely want your stuff, and now is the time to sell it to them.
