One thing I like about us is that we know all about exponential growth and compounding, but none of us take it seriously when we consider investments. We just look for quick bucks that leads us to investing directly in harsh equity and the crypto market currently. This is, frankly, not the correct way to invest.
The days of storing your savings under a mattress are over. Cash under your mattress can’t even keep up with inflation, let alone grow enough for retirement. Investing when you’re young is one of the best ways to see solid returns on your money.
The first step in beginning your journey is deciding how much to invest.
How much you should invest depends on your investment goal and when you need to reach it. One common investment goal is retirement. As a general rule of thumb, you want to aim to invest a total of 10% to 15% of your income each year for retirement.
Post picking an investment option, it is important to craft an investment strategy depending on your saving goals, how much money you need to reach them and your time horizon.
If your savings goal is more than 20 years away, almost all of your money can be in stocks. But picking specific stocks can be complicated and time-consuming, so for most people, the best way to invest in stocks is through low-cost stock mutual funds, index funds or ETFs.
Diversification is considered to be the only free lunch in investing. As a beginner investor, by investing in a range of assets, you reduce the risk of one investment’s performance severely hurting the return of your overall investment. You could think of it as financial jargon for “Don’t put all of your eggs in one basket.” It is integral in imbibing diversification as the soul of your portfolio.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
