The Secret to Good Investments for Young People

So what do you think is the best opportunity for a good investment? What is the secret to making good investments instead of bad choices? Surprisingly, it is education. No, you should not run out and buy stock in schoolbooks; however, you should read them. Everyone is motivated to secure his or her wealth and once you have worked hard and acquired a nest egg, it will most likely be invested in something, or should be. Money that is hiding in a mattress is wasted; it slowly erodes in value over time and a waste of a good investment opportunity. Money in the home that you live in is security for your family.

Education regarding investment is critical, mainly because most individuals hand their life savings over to someone else to invest (for a percentage) and go back to life as usual until there is a missed signal and a market downturn and the nest egg is gone. Learning to do it for yourself saves more than a few percent, it gives you the power to control you destiny. We all believe that education and experience are good investments for young people, so why not you?
