I mostly write about personal finance and investing. Everything I write is from my own personal experience, hope you read something that helps you out :)
How To Make Money Investing
If you are like me you probably spent the bulk of your childhood in school. And if you are like me you also probably spent the bulk of your time in school being told that you had to do good in class so that you could “get into a good college” or “get a good job.” From the time we are young, we are ingrained with the “what do you want to be when you grow up” mentality. The funny thing is that by the time we grow up we usually become more and more uncertain about what we want to be. Most of us decide that we don't want to be anything at all or that what we want to be can't support our material needs, so we settle for something that pays the bills. This is obviously not always the case, but it is a huge trend I have noticed in my own generation.
Top 5 Short Term Investments
When I was in high school, I took a consumer finance class. I have always been inclined to be business minded and I remember being very excited about the class when I registered. It only took me a few weeks to realize I was going to be sorely disappointed. One moment that accurately describes the entirety of the class was when the teacher shared an anecdote of a woman who she claimed was “the best investor she knew.”
Creative Investments for Young People
If you have read my previous articles at all then you will know that I advise to just “be creative” at least 20 times per article. There is a reason for this. I have found that the best and most lucrative investments come from being creative, and that makes sense when you think about it. You can’t expect to make as much money in a field that is already saturated with investors as you can in short term no one else has yet thought of. This is why people always talk about the millionaire innovators. It's easiest to make money if you are the first or only one in your field.
This article is about investing, which loosely means spending money on something with the expectation that it will one day be worth more money than what you put into it, thus creating a profit for you. No two investments are the same. Some investments require very little work while some require much more. However, almost all investments require one thing, capital. There are a few exceptions, but overall if you want to start investing, you are going to need some initial funds to get started. This can be hard to do when you are in college and already trying to balance paying bills with paying for your education.
