  • ℹ️ Description
By the time you finish this video, you WILL be ready to start investing in 2021. 🏁 I’m answering eight of the most common questions for how to invest in a step-by-step investing tutorial for beginners. Even if you’ve already started investing, this video will make sure you have the basics you need for higher returns.

I did a poll last year of the community and found that one-in-five had not started investing yet. That changes with this video! I’m going to give you a step-by-step on how to invest by answering every question along the way. By the time you finish the video, you’ll know how to start investing and be ready to make your money work for you.

We’ll start with how much to invest and how to set your goals. You can start investing with any amount on most websites. I’ll show you a strategy to start investing with $150 a month towards the end of the video but if you can only invest small amounts per month, do that. The important point is to get started investing in stocks and create that habit.

I’ll then show you how to get your personal finances ready to invest. We’ll talk about creating an emergency fund that doesn’t keep you saving forever. I’ll also show you which stocks to buy and share my favorite investing strategy.

Next, I’ll reveal the investing platforms I use and what to look for when you decide. I’ve got three criteria I look for in a stock investing website that will save you money and make it easy to invest.

I’m running out of space here so make sure you watch the video. I want to be a force for change in your life and I want you to start investing now!

Stock investing, when done well, is among the most effective ways to build long-term wealth. Definitely the most lucrative venture.

My obstacle is not knowing what the hell im doing.

"Mindset" was my biggest obstacle. Once I began, it became a habit worthy being addicted to. Thanks for this episode.

Biggest obstacle: Not knowing how to get started and not a good knowledge of investing or the pitfalls to avoid

Author — Jody Behun


Just started (at WeBull). My biggest obstacle was being raised by hyenas. Brought up in an environment that contributed to the myths that:

-If you don't have $5, 000 you can afford to lose, investing is not worth it.
-If you want to invest, you need to hire an advisor at an investment firm and their goal is making themselves rich with your money.
-If you don't hire a CFA you'll need to buy some kind of high-learning-curve software to keep track of your portfolio
-Investing is too complicated for the very day person and you really need to have an advanced level of knowledge and experience about how the stock market and economy work.

I decided to just learn some basics, listened to some videos, took some advice on how to get started in the actual process of investing. I did this for myself for my birthday in Nov 2020, spent about two weeks on and off just scaling into the knowledge I'd need to do what I wanted. Looked at the markets, society, trends, news, learning how politics and interest rates affect markets and decided that what I should put my money in was copper, building supplies, and online retail. I dunno if that's a valid long-term strategy but so far, so good.

My biggest concern is which platform do I start investing with. ie: e trade, robinhood, webull, etc. Getting in is the biggest obstacle for beginners like me. Too skeptical to just jump in to any trading platform. Then the fees to invest.

I have been watching your videos lately and I have to say I love them, you explain things simply and you give all of the information folks need to get started.

Everyone should invest and grow their money.
