Are you ready to open your pathway to financial independence?
Well you should be. The sooner the better. But, how do you get started?
There is so much to know about investing and the truth is it will take a lot of training and guidance in order to get the hang of it. With our fast paced and ever changing economy, it will be hard to fit into the market with no experience. So the sooner you get started the better. You can start anywhere, read books, websites, financial publications, magazines, attend courses, seminars etc. but no matter what you do, make sure you start right now!
Investing refers to the accumulation of some kind of asset in hopes of getting a future return from it. There are several different ways you can invest your money. You can invest in a bond, which is exchanging money for a promise of more money in the future. You could also invest in an capital investment, which is the exchange of money by a business for an addition to their ability to produce. No matter what you decide to invest in, the fundamentals are the same. You are basically buying risk. the more risk you take on, the higher price you can sell it for. That's basically what all investing boils down to. As an investor you are really becoming a risk manger.
The number one tip is to invest wisely, do some research to figure out what kinds of questions you should be asking. A few common sense questions would be those that evaluate the background of the brokerage firm or individual banker with whom you intend to do business with, before you hand over your money.
It is also important to evaluate the firms history, how stable it is, etc. because if the firm goes out of business chances are you might not be able to recover your money.
A good place to start figuring out what questions to ask of your broker is the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission homepage, they have a detailed page that outlines very good questions to ask. You could also check the library for other investing resources. Make sure to take notes when you ask your questions and write down the answers that you received, this shows the broker that you are a serious investor.
Its important to consider that, as a beginner in the investment world, you are sure to make mistakes. Everyone does, but its your ability to learn from these mistakes that will give you the experience necessary to carry on and improve your results. The only logical way to learn from your mistakes is to write down everything you do, and evaluate it thoroughly. This way you will be able to acknowledge what mistakes you make, and help you avoid repeating them.
