As that adage goes, “stop saving & start investing!” Today’s video tackles the basics of both these things. Everything mentioned here is in addition to whatever your company does for a retirement fund (i.e., a 401K). As always, investing is RISKY! In fact, given the way economic cycles work, it’s been argued that the next recession is coming in the next couple of years. Whether or not you want to start investing now should be carefully evaluated based on your own financial situation and what your investment goals are.
