"You have to use the market rather than have the market use you."

That's the best advice from financial and wealth management expert Anthony Ogorek after a more than 600 point drop in the stock market Friday.

"We have been due for a pull-back. What we found is that a tremendous amount of money came into the market in 2017. Things don't go straight up, you expect to have some type of ajustment."

Ogorek says with a steady and unprecedented 2017, the market will soon come down.

"As the market backs down a bit, it gives people perspective," he said.

Ogorek says now is the best time to buy and invest in a portfolio that could grow your financial future.
