Investment basics and tips

Trading and saving are not the same as investing.

Merriam-Webster defines investing as “the outlay of money usually for income or profit.”

Regardless of how you choose to invest your money, you’re essentially giving your money to a company, government, or other entity with the hope they will give you even more money in the future.

It sounds complicated, but a few basic principles can help get you started today.

If you have a large amount of credit card debt, focus on paying that off first.

This is because no investment will continually outperform the high-interest rate you are paying on your debt.

You should also make you have an emergency savings account with enough money for at least six months of all your expenses.

This is an important step to secure before you risk your money.

Another thing to consider is avoiding something called “lifestyle creep.”

As we earn more money, we view things that were once luxuries as staples.

This can consume a lot of the money we could be investing.

Start investing with small amounts of money and learn more about what you are investing in.

It is also to understand all the risks you are taking.

One way to mitigate some risks is to ensure that you diversify your portfolio.
