On Monday, the Dow, the S&P 500, and the Nasdaq Composite all closed at new record highs. It’s great news for anyone with money in stocks. But as the markets continue to reach for the sky, many investors are wondering what to do next.

One of my favorite parts of tax season is the NCAA Basketball Tournament. The tournament starts in the throes of tax season, so we are more than ready to have some fun when March Madness rolls around each year.

I may have been born to play hockey. Seriously.
Growing up, hockey was so much a part of the culture that I can’t even remember a time before I had skates on my feet. At 3, I was on the ice. At 11, I was playing competitively. The high school in my hometown was (and I think still is) the only school in Michigan to have its own on-campus ice rink, and I was on the ice at all times. By my senior year of high school, I was one of the team’s captains, and we made it to the state finals. (We lost a close one 2-0, and I’m still getting over it!) I played in college and was working toward playing professionally until a career-ending injury put me permanently on the sidelines. Even today, hockey is still a big part of who I am—and it’s definitely part of how I think.
It’s probably no surprise that when I sat down with Derrick and Kate last week, I used a hockey analogy to talk about investing. It certainly wasn't the first time.
