HOW TO INVEST $1000 📈 Investing Your First 1000 Dollars


How to invest $1000 is a common question I get. Investing $1000 can be a great opportunity. If investing in the stock market, do your research before deciding how to invest $1000 you have to spare. This video should shed some light on how to invest $1000.

How To Invest $1000 | 4 Ways…

1. Index Funds or Mutual Funds

If you are looking to minimize risk and get exposure to the stock market, invest $1000 in a low fee index fund or mutual fund. Here is a surprising fact: From 1997 to 2012 all-index fund portfolios outperformed actively managed funds 83.4% of the time. Low cost index funds beat the professional stock pickers 83.4% of the time! The disadvantage to investing in a mutual fund or an index fund is there is little involvement on the part of the investor. This is a set it and forget it type of investment.

2. Invest in a Stock.

While stock picking shouldn’t be your primary investment strategy, it can be a fun way to learn. Most individual stock investors set aside a portion of their portfolio for individual stocks. I suggest investing in a company you like. Invest in no more than two companies to offset commission costs. If you don’t have interest in investing in a company you like, you should invest in a stable dividend stock.

3. Invest in a Side Business.

If you are looking for a 10x or 100x return on investment, you should invest in a side business. Start a YouTube Channel, a photography business, a drone business, a face painting business, become an ebay reseller, start a landscaping business or a consulting business. Commit all revenue from that side business to purchase other income producing assets to create a cycle of wealth.

4. Invest in Yourself.

Invest in educating yourself in order to earn more money at the job you have. Or, learn a skill you can teach to others. A third option is to educate yourself about money management and personal finance.

In my opinion these are the best options of how to invest $1000. If you are trying to learn how to invest $1000, I recommend following one of these four options above. Your best option for how you should invest $1000 is to invest in your own side business. These are the investments that pay you back the most.

  1. Hi Ryan

    Can you give me direction and Advice?
    I have $10,000 to start investing for myself. I am 32 years old with no other investments, interested in property, willing to invest the whole $10k and would like to invest to get into the property market.
    I also have $2,300 for my son who is 3 years old and want to invest that money for him till he is at least 18 years old. My sons investment will have a $500-$1k added every year as he gets older.

    What would you do?


  2. I bought, tuned up and detailed 5 cars. Compounded the paint to look new. Total cost 8000.00$. Liability on all 5 cars, 300$ month. I rent them out by the day for 10 each. 1500$ a month minus 300 yields me a 1200$ a month surplus. Got my 8 grand back in 7 months.

  3. Thank you so much Mr. Ryan , I wish you nothing but success on your journey. You've taught me so much in just a few videos! So job well done, money well invested sir!!

  4. Hi Ryan, as someone who has only recently started learning about investing at the tender age of 37, I wonder if you have some advice for people who started later in life, but still want to invest

  5. I could understand switching your portfolio entirely to a new broker would be a pain but robinhood brokerage does free trading and no commission. They figured out a way to make money and not charge fees. That alone could be a long term investment if you add $ to your portfolio often.

  6. I recommend Charles Schwab. Great Mutual and Index funds with low expense, and Scottrade(TD AmT). *TD Ameritrade now acquired Scottrade.

  7. Hey I'm 17 and very interested in the stock market, one thing I'm doing as a 2nd gig besides a normal job is buying cars with my friends, upgrading them, then selling them for more money.

  8. Hey, Ryan love your Video, by the way speaking about Mutual Funds, you should definitely check out this Book from Tony Robbins "Money Master the Game" he strongly not recommend Mutual funds (= Huge fees) for investment, this book is a gold mine!
