Never Invested? Start Today!

So, how many of you reading this evening are in fact invested in the stock market?

If the audience of this blog resembles the United States population as a whole, the answer is roughly half.

Those of you who are not invested – I have shared before how vitally important I believe it is for for you to become so.

The stock market may strike you as risky or difficult to understand.  The truth is that investing in stocks is the surest pathway to a financially free future that there is.  And you don’t have to learn a bunch of complex concepts, rules or formulas.

Those of you who have followed me for some time and/or know me personally know that I wrote a beginner’s guide to investing last year.

Titled The Stock Market is For Everyone and available in ebook and paperback format, it’s a quick, easy read designed to get you up and running quickly and start investing with as much or as little as is possible for you right now.

Let’s increase the percentage of Americans who are invested.  Become one of us and start your journey toward financial freedom today!

 

My book, The Stock Market is For Everyone, is a short guide for the beginning, inexperienced investor that is easy to understand and can be put into action immediately.

If You Like Trends, Read This!

One of my favorite activities is reading.

I pretty much like to read books on business-related topics or investing.  That may be boring for many of you, but that’s what I like to read!

I just finished reading a fascinating book called Microtrends Squared by Mark Penn.  It’s a follow-up to a book he wrote 10 years ago called Microtrends.

I am very interested in reading about new developing trends that are taking place in our nation and world.  As an investor, discovering emerging trends can be very profitable if you catch them at the right time and find companies to invest in.

The book is extremely informative and educational.  You need to be aware of what’s happening and how industries are changing!

Penn covers trends in six areas:

1. Love and Relationships

2. Health and Diet

3. Technology

4. Lifestyle

5. Politics

6. Work and Business

We are in the age of disruption.   This book captures mini-trends that are taking place right now that over time can become huge!

For example: in his last book, a decade ago, he identified the emergence of online marriages as a Microtrend.  In 2015 Match.com (NASDAQ: MTCH) went public at $15 a share.  Today, Match trades at $52 a share – up 3 times in value!  This is an example of a Microtrend that became a megatrend.

Microtrends Squared is a fun read.  I highly recommend it, and I hope you enjoy it!
