Are you diversifying different asset categories like stocks, bonds, money market accounts, and real estate?
Does this diversification allocation match your overall risk tolerance?
You need to make sure not all your money is invested in one company or one asset class because that puts you at a higher risk if that one company or asset class does not perform. You might be taking on more risk than needed by investing all your money in one company.
