Investing is such an important piece of a smart and well-rounded financial plan. I can’t urge you enough to start investing as soon as you possibly can. The more years you have for your money to compound the better off you will be down the line. I know it can be confusing and hard to figure out what the “right” fund is to select or exactly how much to invest. I’m going to make it really easy you – anything that you can start doing is better than nothing. Pick a fund, figure out your risk tolerance (how much risk you can handle before you want to hide in a closet out of fear for looking at your portfolio balance), and select an amount you will invest each month. Even if you choose a not so good fund, you are better off than someone who chose no fund at all.
I’m getting a lot of questions about investing, so this episode was fun to do. Keep the questions coming, and email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, send me a question via Twitter @shannahgame, or find me on LinkedIn and shoot me a private message. Remember, no question is a bad question!
So you’ve got your marching orders, right? Start investing today for your future!
