The following commentary comes from an independent investor or market observer as part of TheStreet's guest contributor program, which is separate from the company's news coverage.NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Q: My father taught me a lot regarding finance. His voice constantly guides my choices at work. Lately, my own financial instincts differ from his traditional, safe thinking. I feel anxious because I've always followed his lead and have respect for his teachings. Can I get tips on both following my gut and utilizing what he taught me? A: Excellent question. You are blessed to have the kind of father whose advice you respect.
4. Do not worry . . . as with every new situation, you will adapt. Slowly, you will begin to trust yourself and the anxiety will abate. 5. Have faith that your father has taught you well, and it is now your time! Take those lessons and build upon them. Everyone's financial circumstances are different. I wish you the best of luck in charting your own course and reaping the financial benefits of calculated risk taking. Good Luck!!!
