I love writing about personal finance and helping people learn how to meet their goals in this area. That said, when it comes to investing, I know it can feel overwhelming if you’re not sure where to start. And even if you have experience, it never hurts to keep learning and improve your strategy.
For instance, many of us may have learned more about shoe shopping than buying stocks—and we pay for this lack of knowledge when we miss out on the returns investing can bring.
Meanwhile, some people in older generations are working longer than they’d planned. So it’s important to have an effective investing strategy for the short and long term.
–what to know about emotional investing (there are ways to avoid it)
–what it really means to diversify your portfolio (people are getting this wrong, ya’ll); and
–how much cash it actually takes to start (it’s not as much as you might think).
So how much do you actually know about investing?
