The problem with investing that no one is talking about
Investing your money requires decisions. You can work with a financial advisor or stock-picking service, but first, you have to CHOOSE one.
Then you face more decisions:
Which of Motley Fool’s recommendations should I buy? Should I buy them today or set a limit price? What limit price?
Time spent researching stocks is time I’m not writing.
Should you put your money in a savings bank or under the mattress? No, but realize when you invest money, you also invest time. Consider monetary investments requiring less time –such as a mutual fund or stock that you can purchase and hold for more than a year. Spend an evening looking at where your money is invested, evaluate if you can do better, make any changes and then forget about it for six months.
Just my 2 cents.
