Lost Time Is Costlier!

10 year old eric
10-year-old me in 1977.  Imagine I’d started investing back then!!

I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve wished that someone had introduced me to investing in the stock market when I was in my teens.

Now look, I cannot say with 100% certainty that the message would have clicked inside my teenage mind, and thus caused me to start investing at that time.  However, I sure would have loved to have been able to have found out.  I know that much.

Whether you admit it to yourself or not, we all want financial freedom and independence.  Unfortunately, many of us don’t believe it’s possible.  If we don’t have it by a certain age, we pretty much concede that it can’t happen.

If you’re in that place, I can certainly understand and identify with how you feel.  I don’t agree with it, however!

It’s true that time is not on your side if you’re in your 40s or 50s.  But you can still do something financially intelligent.  You can start investing now!

 

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.

Expose Your Children To Investing!

investing for kids

I spend a great deal of time listening to financial podcasts about investing.

There is a common theme among many of the people on these podcasts who have been investing for years.  Most, if not all of them, were exposed to investing at a young age – anywhere from ages 5 to 15.

I understand that your kid could probably care less about investing at 5.  But at 15, he or she may have an interest.  Even if not, you’ve planted the seed.

It’s funny.  We expose our children to basketball, football, baseball, soccer and swimming.  It’s fun, and creates great memories, but it won’t do squat for your child unless you happen to be raising the next Lebron James.

The game of compound interest can do amazing things over your child’s lifetime.  Investing is the only way the average Joe can build real wealth.  The wealthy already know it, and now you do too.  Make sure your kids know as well!

My short beginners’ guide, The Stock Market is For Everyone, is an easy read that teens, and even some preteens, should be able to grasp.  Order a copy for your child today here:
