I appreciate your anxiety about starting to invest or even just figuring out where to start learning how to invest.
Like most things worth doing, taking charge of your financial future can be intimidating, but at the end of the day, it is absolutely worth doing.
There is more “information” out there than ever before and that body of information gets accelerated exponentially by the internet. A great deal of that streaming information is just noise, so it is critical that you narrow your focus to a manageable number of quality sources.
Along those lines, I recommend that anyone interested in taking charge of their financial life, start with reading Investors Business Daily (IBD). IBD is a manageable size, daily financial newspaper that even Joe Friday could love because it gives “just the facts mamm”. If you go to the IBD website, they have an offer for two weeks free delivery of the newspaper; take advantage of it.
Start there and feel free to shoot me any questions you have.
Hope that helps & good luck.
