Investing is a very salient issue for me right now. The other day I talked about wanting to find a financial adviser but I’m still doing a lot of research on my own. I have to admit, I’m as investment savvy as I am technology savvy – meaning, not very. But I’m trying to figure this stuff out because I think it’s pretty important to have a firm grasp on what’s going on. My husband *gosh I love saying that* is on the up-and-up when it comes to global economics but is about as clueless as me regarding stocks, bonds, blablabla.
Want I want to do though is share the resources I am finding and start some conversations about different investment styles – what works and for whom?
I’m not a big risk taker when it comes to money. I don’t gamble simply because I’m a hoarder with my cash and I don’t want to lose it to chance. Well I know that investment carries risk and as someone who is young, some people suggest taking a higher-risk road.
