The Most Important Article You’ll Ever Read On Investing

Thanks, Ayelet! I think people overcomplicate investing, often to the point of not doing it at all. Index funds are a great way to get started. From there, if you find interest in individual stocks, I would recommend it more for the fun or the game, than for the return. You can definitely profit from individual stocks, but when you consider the amount of time you must spend to do so, index funds make more sense mathematically.

Thanks for the comment, Nick! Over the long term, index funds are the easiest, least time-consuming option for investing and they tend to outperform actively trading or active mutual funds. I prefer to spend my time making more money to pour into index funds vs trying to pick winning stocks.

Money and productivity have more in common than you may think. If you really want to get serious about getting out of debt, investing or making more money, you should become a student of finances. Without properly investing your time, you’ll never have time for what’s important​. You have your own set of priorities and goals, but one thing I’m sure of is that you could achieve more with more money and greater productivity.

Let’s not get too serious here though. Life should be fun. I write all of these articles as if I were having a conversation with you and I keep them light, so feel free to jump right in the conversation by commenting and connecting through social media. Let’s learn, grow and become better together.
