I am always encouraging Fools to keep emotions out of their investing decisions, and that goes for whether to subscribe to new Foolish services. TMF offers a variety of premium services that appeal to different investing strategies and styles, and when you read the marketing copy, it can feel like you are missing out on something great. But TMF does not want you to subscribe to a premium service if you don't think you will get value out of it.

TMF wants to help you invest better and sometimes that means exploring new opportunities. They offer a number of different premium services with different focuses and styles. While they all share the same core Foolish values and philosophy, they do so with different investment goals and strategies. And just like any company, TMF markets its products to existing subscribers as well as potentially new ones.

But sometimes it means you have everything you need with your existing subscription(s). So if you are happy with where you are, you shouldn't feel pressured to add or change to another service. But if you don't feel your current subscription(s) cover all your investing needs and you want to explore additional options, then that's OK too.

Every Fool is different. Just make sure you understand why you are subscribing and are able to make the financial commitment to fully participate.

Who cannot advise you one way or the other but himself would only subscribe to a service because he wanted access to its investment strategy and values, not because of FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out)...
