You'll often hear the phrase VOO and chill or sometimes VTI and chill. VOO is the ticker to Vanguard's S&P 500 index ETF (VTI is Vanguards total U.S. market ETF). The idea is to invest all of your money in the S&P 500 (or perhaps the total U.S. market) and just relax.
After my video showing my 2021 portfolio tracked the performance of the S&P 500 (more or less), many asked why I bothered with multiple asset classes and individual stocks. Why not just VOO and chill?
This video explains why, and more importantly, walks through some concepts that might help you decide what's best for your portfolio.
